[Moved] This week we have 2 new mad scientists! Congrats to Tobias and Denis



  • Tobias: "http://developer.qt.nokia.com/member/458":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/member/458
    Denis: "http://developer.qt.nokia.com/member/222 ":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/member/222

    Both long time members, worked hard to get to this ranking and its most well deserved !



  • thanks :) and congrats to Tobias.



  • Hey! Congrats Denis!



  • Hey, congrats you 2



  • I concur! It is well deserved and and I hope the mailman will arrive on your doorsteps with Alexandras care-package soon :)



  • What's the care package for being Mad Scientist?



  • I also have to add my congratulations... I almost feel like I know you ... Every thread I visit I see your names :) You must live in a parallel universe where the day has more than 24 hours ...



  • Congratulation guys.
    No, the parallel universe has 24 hours. It's just their bodies don't require sleep.



  • no parallel universes, rarely late nights .. its just total addiction to Qt I guess ;-)



  • Having the email chain from Gmail sure helps keep up to date with emails.

    If you have this on your phone, you can be doing work, on the train or whatever and still reply to everyone.



  • Congratulations, guys! :-)



  • Marius, package, hm? It is interesting :)

    I guess my issue is that I currently have too many addictions to split up my hours... But I have to say the the amount of contributions you make look like a full-time paying job! :)



  • [quote author="tamhanna" date="1291535642"]But, to be honest, keeping on top of a forum doesn't require nearly as much time as one thinks. Just run the numbers and see ;).[/quote]

    well one could always abuse the points system, but that wouldn't take you far in terms of reputation. at least i can vouch that the top members (at least till a few days ago) have provided many a solution to many users and contributed a lot to the forum's growth. we didn't get there by just creating noise and posting an opinion about everything on earth! we didn't use this forum for load testing as someone earlier said

    Which is precisely what I (and prolly most of the other highranking members) do.

    Wrong again, you cannot talk for all high ranked members. I, at least need my Qt sdk in place to answer many Qt related questions here and actually try out stuff first before posting solutions. Mobile only environment can be good for holding chats and conversations :)



  • Never thought about answering from phone. As chetankjain said for most questions dev env is needed (at least good text editor for quick code examples), sometimes qtcreator is used.



  • chetankjain: Hopefully I am not going to prove your first point by agreeing with the second.

    I sure would like to win a phone but don't have any hope of doing so... My comment about how much time they have to devote to posting was intended as a complement not just because of the number of posts but also because of their variety. Of course with such higher numbers a percentage will end up being "less" technical and more "community/opinion/chat" oriented but I think they are as valid!

    fcrochik, I took your comments as a compliment :) and thanks for that !
    the good admins/managers of devnet continuously keep coming up with such competitions/awards, you will have your chance. did you miss out on the babel project? see here: "http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2010/10/22/call-for-babel-fishes/":http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2010/10/22/call-for-babel-fishes/

    and most of the times, I'm trying out a solution and there is always someone faster who posts the correct answer or points in the right way :) and i miss getting points there :(



  • tamhanna, forum is oriented for help, not for learning.

    chetankjain, hehe, it's all about me too :)

    chetankjain: Unfortunately too late! I can't remember the last time I wrote anything in Portuguese about software development but it would have been The Opportunity.

    just follow the devnet blogs and especially when our chief editor and admin supreme, Alexandra posts something, usually there will be something free coming right after :P ...

    If stuck I would rather prefer a better developer to help me solve the problem in my code than anybody else, there are the grand architects who create and define it all, and they are great developers too! This is a developer network ! yes ?



  • tamhanna, this quote is not going here. As I said main reason why people ask questions at forums is that they need help in this question, not learning. Most of them were googled a lot, read other forums and asked because they need help.



  • lol
    learn flying from a pilot, not the man who just read a book on flying :)

    we know these things, we don't spoon feed everything, we provide pointers and maybe small code snips that really show the way. we don't do Qt projects for college kids or their homework if thats what you mean



  • Congratulations Tobias and Denis



  • Congrats, guys! You amazing!

    Teach him to fish, he has food.

    I tried that, but my girlfriend thinks I'm crazy if I speak to myself. ;)
