[Status Update] - I'm back :-) and: CDS + S/4HANA + ATP

I Don't know if anyone noticed, I've been away for another month (Elternzeit, yeah! :-) ) - as far as I can tell, I didn't miss much.

Also, my question on CDS-Views in S/4 (and ATP), that I wrote a month ago still has no reactions whatsoever and only 19 views...

(I'm secretly hoping to get a result as good as that other time.. #ccPower)

I skip the questions in ABAP forum that have CDS or HANA in the title. Can't help there, sorry.

And I'm guessing the S/4HANA experts out there are too busy diving into their money Scrooge McDuck style. :)

Hey Jelena, fair enought!

As for the S/4HANA experts: who exactly would that be in your opinion? Sven Denecken, Joerg Wolf , Yannick Peterschmitt ? Maybe if I @-mention them, they'll let go off the money for a short time and help me with my question?!

;-)

Frankly, German legislation allows for twelve months of Elternzeit per child and parent, so I guess even if you had taken ten more months, the miss in contents would not be much bigger. The miss in community feeling - well, that may be different (I hope).

As a side note, sometimes I regret getting involved in the questions that had 0 replies for a while. You never know what OP's expectations are.

If it's still an open question it probably makes sense to bump it up yourself after a while by posting a comment. It'd be cool if SCN could generate an alert/email to OP, like "Hey, it's been out there for a while, are you still looking for an answer? If not then either delete/close or post how it was solved. Sincerely, SCN"

OPs don't care to close the question if it has answers, do you think they will be bothered if there are no answers at all?

There is always hope. :) Have to admit, I'm bad with closing my own questions. Some of them don't really have a simple answer but I should just close them and move on after a while. Since there is no reminder to do that, I usually forget until I read someone complain about people not closing the questions and then it's like "oh, cr@p..."

I try do do that from time to time - just could *accept* 3 more.

Thanks to you today was the first time that I encountered a case where the OP responded to a really old question for which I provided an answer.

And once I was on the receiving side - I got an answer when I have almost given up waiting (it was in fact Joachim Rees who helped me).

Usually I avoid participating when a post is older than 3 weeks and there is not an ongoing discussion - even for newer questions it is not uncommon that the OP posts 'something' and disappears.

Like "why doesn't anyone help me?" or "I'm still interested, any ideas?!" ?

This would go so much against my "net-education" - I'd usually would say: If someone knows the answer and wants to help you, she/he will do so; you won't improve your chances by 'demanding' an answer more strongly.

But maybe with new SAP-Community and problems with content discovery, the rules have changed? After all, I didn't feel to bad plugging my question here at Coffee Corner.

Do others agree that "bumping" your own question with a comment (without providing more input) is ok here?

To my mind it's better to add extra info about the question subject (missing in the original question) and information about author's attempts to solve the issue.
