To all electronic enthusiasts!
« on: May 17, 2017, 09:11:14 AM »
This is a post that I wrote on facebook, but I would like to ask that you share this with your friends on facebook or other social media, feel free to rewrite or link to this thread, what I want out is the statement about saving information.

Quote
I kindly ask you all, that you carefully consider and think about all the websites you have used to learn about electronics, all the forums you have trawled through for information and the vast amount of videos on youtube that has helped you understand and solve a problem.

This information only exists because there are people wanting to let the information live on, from user to user, open platforms like personal websites and forums are indexed and made searchable by almost any search engine on the internet. Imagine if all you ever found on google was closed facebook profiles and no information.

This is a circle of information sharing that has been broken, the eco system of knowledge sharing is dying with social media.

Only uploading pictures of your experiment with a short sentence or "science!" is destroying the electronics hobby, if you value what you have learned on the internet, then give it back to the internet, make your own website or, less time consuming, write a good long thread on a forum about the technical issues you had and how it was solved.

Do not worry about if you think that your english is not good enough, do not fear that you make yourself look inexperienced, so would I in many fields of science and there is no way that I master every aspect of electronics. Ask, Learn and Help each other!

There is a generation gap right now, 20 years ago everyone shared their knowledge on mailing lists or had a html website, next leap came with the blogs where focus could be moved to creating content and not maintaining code, but with social media, all control, history and indexing is gone. There is no information left for the future generations, because it is all posted on closed social media groups. Content is mixed, unorganized and for the most lost for the user after a couple of weeks, way down the stream.

Fight the loss of knowledge! Make a website or post on a forum! Only use social media to link to your website/forum post. This is the only way for the information to live on.

I hope you will share this call to arms with like minded electronics interested people.

Kind regards

Sorry to bother you Mads, but I have tried to register at 4hv.org and everything I try fails. I can't find an emailaddress of moderators and mailing to info@4hv.org gives me this answer:  Last reason: 550 5.0.0
   Explanation: host 4hv.org [198.15.109.50] said: No such person at this address"

Could you advice on how to proceed?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Ton

I also tried registering there a lot of time ago, still have two pending approvals at 4hv, I even got an answer from the owner saying he was behind on registration duties, but he never said anything again. That is actually how I found this forum, when searching for "hv forum" on google. First time I searched for that, this forum didn't exist or was not on the highlights of google as it is now.

One account there is AndreiRS, the other Andrei917. One was created some big time ago, the other I think some days ago. I even sent the required email and all that, no luck.

Now back to you topic, very good text. My friend Daniel from were I live, created a forum about electronics, wood work, metal work. It was going good, still small, but got some google attention too. Then after facebook and whatsapp, meh, noone posts there anymore. My TC topic there is only me talking to myself, that is lame actually.

All I can say is that, at least here, people got really lazy about forums after facebook. And other are to busy because of our current financial situation.

I know it is in portuguese, but if you look at the statistics at the bottom, it is something, now it is empty.

During reading your post, AndreiRS, I got an email stating  'Your account has been activated.' So finally I am in!
Probably due to the intervention by Mads, so thanks man!
One small question for Mads: I pm'ed you, and ticked the box 'Copy to own inbox', but nothing appeared in my inbox. Is that some problem with this forum?

Daiken, it says "Save a copy in my outbox", so look in your sent messages to find it again :)

AndreiRS, I can post about your username on 4hv too.

Yeah, my poor eyes ;-)
I missed the two arrows at the right however, and than a newbie just can't find his 'sent messages' window.

Thanks for all the help!

If you hover over the "messages" menu you can select sent messages in the drop down :)

Also thanks for pointing out how that double arrow changes the view, that is much nicer
