I should maybe note too that I am not actually the admin, as in my own username on the system is not flagged as an admin.

The actual admin that came with the system is still the only admin, and I happen to be the only person who has its password.

That is probably not quite the same thing as simply having my own username flagged as an admin, for example if there is fine grained control over each and every thing one can flag a user as having an admin power over then likely this built in original admin has it all flagged.

So it might be kind of like a "root user" in Unix: an account one actually should try very hard to never actually use nor even maybe need to use.

There seems to be an abstraction layer between fine grained controls and types of user, so that an active admin user means a user having certain powers, an active full member user has different powers and so on.

So it might be possible to make a type of user labelled an advertising admin, and assign to that type various powers relating to advertising.

users seem maybe to be of only one type at a time though, if so a full member would be distinct from an advertising admin and probably an advertising admin should be a separate username distinct from someone's full member username and should not need all the powers of a full member only the various powers relating to ads.

Etc for other separations of function.

I don't even recall what default ad-categories it came with.

What categories do we need?

-MarkM-


Some basic categories to start with:
Writing: Fiction
Writing: Non-Fiction
Art

Then just look through DevTome and use the categories there to create sub categories.

Anyone got any better ideas?

ThinkI

hey man i just read your "earn devcoins by doing things you enjoy" article and it was great! i've had a devtome link in my sig for a while now, but did not know i could get shares from it. Can you explain how i would do this please?

EDIT: i think i figured it out

It doesn't seem to have sub-categories.

Each category has a parent, but i do not seem to be able to change the parent from "Main category" to, e.g., "Products" or "Services"...

Oops never mind, I found out how to do it...

Trying to separate fiction from non-fiction is I think too awkward to attempt, because a large part (or what used once upon a time to be a large part, anyway) of Devtome's content directly involves the whole fourth wall and what is considered fiction by who kind of stuff.

Earth is a fictional planet, for example, according to various other planets, most of whom are regarded themselves by most inhabitants of Earth as fictional...

Re over-thinking it:

Not at all. On the contrary, maybe others are under-thinking it. Smiley

A science article that contains false statements of fact is thereby fictional.

Also, writing lies and writing truths both require the same writing skills, it is only the journalistic/research skills or application of those skills that differ.

Given the fictional facts or the nonfictional facts, writing about them is still just writing about them.

So maybe a better distinction would be reporting versus coming up with ideas / facts / topics to report.

So the distinction isn't really in the writing, it is in who you interview or what source material you consult in order to come up with the "facts" (or fictions) that you are to write about.

Also a factual account of what actually happened on a fictional planet, or in the Oz that Dorothy visited, etcetera, is different from a fictional account of what happened there.

A factual account of what happened to Dorothy in Oz is maybe something along the lines of a precis or summary or re-write of what happened to Dorothy in Oz.

A fictional account of what happened to Dorothy in Oz is maybe a new Oz book, a whole new adventure, Dorothy's adventures in Oz being continued or extended by a new author, which only becomes "factual" if it becomes "canon".

On that analysis most of the scientific knowledge of mankind is fiction. Very useful fiction, but fiction all the same.
In any case, if its going to cause problems then, lets stick to writing and skip the Fiction/Non-fiction distinction.

A lot of the writing about it though is factual accounts of what scientists did and said.

Or purportedly at least approximately factual, anyway. Newton's purported apple might be a myth or legend but that he came up with a theory about gravity seems likely to be true. Unless he stole someone else's idea...

So maybe you start to see why fact versus fiction is a can of worms we might be better off not getting into.

I see that there is a current user on Devtome that is doing League of Legends guides.
I am not like this person, his guides are copied and pasted over and over with very little actual information or depth.

I do not like it at all that he is taking advantage of devtome and i assure you my guides will be quality, lengthy, and very in depth.

I want to help people become better players, not take advantage of devtome. I really suggest removing that toxic user and his so-called "guides".

Anybody can use copy and paste.
I was thinking of doing guides as well... Is his work really plagiarized?
-AM

they arent exactly "plagiarized, however, he seems to copy and paste his same guide with different pictures relative to the champion.
here are some examples
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=jayce_top_guide
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=orianna_middle_guide
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=fiddlesticks_jungle_guide

i cant find any more on the main page and i am still new so i cant navigate very well. However, in the vast majority of his guides there is basically the skills, and some flavor text.
for example, in every "mid" guide he posts you can find these 2 lines EXACTLY
Flash: Is ok. You can also tweak it with ghost if you want.
Ignite: Standard boost/finish for AP mages. You better take at least one ignite per team the healing reduction is so useful.

you will find that EXACT text for every mid guide, with a little info on each skill. Its disgusting.

This is what I hate.. ppl trying to game the system.. prob for thousands $ u think this guy wouldnt be dumping his dvc at market?

I know it's safe but my issue is with stopping eset from quarantining it. Even if I turn it off it will still flag it later on scan. How can I whitelist it?

Tried your link too, got flagged on download.
I don't know, but like a lot of new software until it's more ubiquitous AV's may flag it. I didn't receive any quarantine msg but think I did initially have to permit it to run (same with some other clients) until I guess enough users of my AV were also running the .exe. I don't use eset but would assume there's an excluded processes section or similar which gives you an override option. edit: http://www.eset.sg/html/171/779

would the live ubuntu cd process described below work with the devcoin client

what creates a rise in price is scarcity. Demand over supply. I see the case for it as more and more ppl are writing the % of those selling ppl who earn falls and creates an incentive for price to rise. As more stuff gets published real value is applied to the project and you see a recipe for growth. When people start getting involved in the bounties as price is rising or is stable you can see how it would blossom. Its wishful thinking probably but
I see that the fact that the 80k word dumpers we have recently will not have so much selling power as time goes on.

If writers drop off then price would probably follow.

On those guides:
1) It's certainly a template, but that doesn't make it plagiarism.
2) This writer has been completely open about what he's doing and asking whether repetition or template is allowed for the purpose of explanations - finding the best way to do it is ongoing.
3) The plan was to have a top-page and series of sub pages with references to avoid duplication.
4) I haven't had time to revist this recently due to other issues and pure plagiarism in other articles, but will do.
