[Status update] Finally... my first moderator alert on the new platform!

Wohooo! Even though "Cross-posting" is currently not a alert category anymore. Duplicated is still kind of cross-posted, isn't it?

Now I really feel like the new era started. :)

    Technically, I guess, you couldn't cross-post in old SCN, you could just post duplicates. Now you can cross-post, by adding multiple tags, there's no need at all for duplicate postings. That's just clutter that should be deleted - kill off all but one and add all the tags to that.

    It will probably take people a little while to realise they can do this...

      Yeah, I think in this case s/he was not trying to reach more people, but maybe hasn't found the first question anymore. *ahem*

      Posting duplicates into several spaces was my definition of "cross-posting".

    And I love how the Idea Place grows. Lets hope it's fate will be better than that of the old one. ^^

      It looks like beta testing is about to start :)

      Exciting, isn't it?

      It grows way too much. There are duplicate idea postings already, and it seems that SAP leaves it to the users to manage themselves...

      Appears also that the SAP strategy internally is to point all users reporting a bug into creating an idea in idea place.

        No, a bug is a bug and an idea is an idea. I haven't yet seen someone pointing to the idea place, when we're clearly talking about a bug. That's what the "using" tag is for (at the moment mostly).

        And that there a duplicate ideas is more an issue of "didn't search first". I guess whoever is in charge of the idea place, has currently no time to moderator it really, because they are flooded with the bug reports etc.

        If we as users can help out, then IMO we should. It's part of our community and we shape it, too, not just the SCN team. :)
