Feature request: "In response to" blogs

Hi,

One of the things we haven't been able to achive with the blog system today, is discussion on topics. Most of the blogs are very technical and show you how to perform a certain task, nothing wrong with this, but it would be great to have some in-depth discussion by matter-experts on various topics.

I think you can facilitate this quite easily allowing a blog to be a response to another existing blog, and provide some method of showing the entire "discussion-thread" in an organized fashion (yes I stole the idea from YouTube, sue me! 😊

The external link which exist today is not enough to facilitate this.

We could also have someone start with some controversial topics in order to spark the discussion:

"Why WD for Java is far superior to WD for ABAP"

"ESA - Been there, done that"

"ABAP coders, face the future of open languages"

"Java is the new Cobol" (Bring in DJ Adams for this one)

Cheers

Dagfinn

    So you mean the ability to basically link to anything and comment on it building a complete linked thread from item to item or what?

      Craig: Generally, I think links from blogs to blogs will be sufficient.

      I don't think the wiki will be the correct forum for discussion, I certainly don't discuss controversial themes through wikipedia 😊

      However, once most opinons are on "print" , someone should write an objective entry with summaries of the different standpoints.

      Cheers

    Hi Dagfinn:

    Sorry...But I need to do some improvements -;)

    > "Why WD for Java is far superior to WD for ABAP"

    Should be.... <b>Why WD for ABAP is far superior to WD for JAVA</b>

    > "Java is the new Cobol" (Bring in DJ Adams for this

    > one)

    Should be....<b>Why SAP choose Java?...Really...Why!?</b>

    Sorry....I kinda hate Java -:D

    Still...I agree with your proposal....And I love discussions and controversies -;D

    Greetings,

    Blag.

    Maybe the wiki would be a better platform for detailed expert discussions around a particular topic.

      Excellent point Keith - just gotta get everyone in there and responding 😊

      Right now I think people hesitate because most content is FAQ based instead of a topic based - suggestion on one that perhaps the community can help your team with and do a small "prototype"?
