New "Peppermint version(s)" forum profile field added.
« on: April 03, 2014, 01:17:05 pm »
If you go to your forum profile:
http://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php?action=profile;area=forumprofile

You'll now see a new field at the bottom called "Peppermint versions(s)" .. you can enter which version or versions of Peppermint you are using here.

It will then display in your "profile topic view" .. look to the left, and you'll see mine.

I entered Peppermint 4, but you could enter just 4 or Four, or Peppermint 4 64bit, etc.

Feel free to leave it blank if you wish, but it might help people giving support to know which version they're supplying support for ;)

For new accounts this will be asked during registration (it is NOT a required field) .. people who already have accounts will have to manually enter it in their forum profile linked above.

Very snazzy. I'm going to have to fight the urge to put something random/unrelated in that field.

How's this?

EDIT: Actually it might make sense to make the field generic as there could be a number of forum users who primarily make use of other operating systems and simply experiment with Peppermint from time to time. For instance right now, my main laptop is running Ubuntu 13.10 and nothing else, the dev laptop is running Lubuntu 14.04 and Arch, while my desktop is running Peppermint Four and Windows 7.

Thoughts?

What as in

Operating System:

??

I *did* have the field explanation say leave "blank if none" .. but sure .. or I can remove it altogether, to an extent I'm just experimenting with forum options and what might be handy.

I figured there are *bound* to be the occasional

Peppermint Version(s): are all <enter random expletive here>

kinda entry .. but they could do that in the "personal text" field anyway (unless disabled) and on the whole it might -

a) be handy for helpers to know what version to give help for.

b) give a small feeling of community .. though I suppose it could equally become an "us and them" thing.

c) give you some small amount of voluntary data on how well particular versions are doing.

Right on. Let's run with it for a few weeks and revisit it later.
