Okay ! So I have to take what I get here.
Is it possible to have this
I believe it would be easy for Siemens PLM to make/program an embedded collaboration pane on the right.
Where SE (and Others) users users can discuss with each other in a skype like window and have the possibility to view 3d models made from SE,NX but also from the competition in the new ISO JT format. And have a way to view linked videos and pictures and bitmaps. So that everyone can see directly if there are any attachments in a thread.
BTW, can we have better smiley icons the one we have now are ugly.
Oh yeah and I like the "spoiler tag" ... spell check does not work in my Opera browser - let us hope it will be fixed soon so that people can understand what I want to say here
Prodigy vs. et al is just title based on how many posts you have on this community. You'll soon become a "Dreamer" and move past that in no time.
Really... Please tell me you're joking! I can't say I'm not surprised that "social media" would rely on a system were by "quantity" of post has more value then quality.
Personaly I couldn't care less, but if this is for real, then I can only laugh at the seriousnees of this "community" I guess we ought to invite Kim Kardashian to join... God knows she's popular for something no one has ever figured out. Give this website about 3 months and Jon Banquor will be the best rated poster.... makes sense to me! /s
Point is if that Solid Edge Users with the most knowledge, and ygreastest ears of experience to share are given an arbitrary ranking that has no meaning!
I had a nice message written about how I liked the new community site, but my post was lost when I clicked post....
It seems that .png images are not allowed.
I have attached two .jpg screen shots. One adds to Bob's complaint, and the other illustrates how using a narrow window clips text and icons from view.
In a world of smartphones, tablets of various sizes, and normal monitors from 20"-40" (often used in multiples,) all with increasing resolutions, it seems that the guideline used to define this site doesn't meet users needs. It seems to me that this forum's target audience would be skewed heavily toward large and multiple monitors when accessed by a PC.
Bob, could be worse... I'm a dreamer??? Go Figure!!!
It's as much about the silly names given as anything. As Matt mentions he is now a Dreamer, which I get to become once I spread some Kudos around. I just never thought this website needed this "gamification" to be useful to Solid Edge user new and old.
A quick search and you get this at wiki: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamification
"Gamification techniques leverage people's natural desires for competition, achievement, status, self-expression, altruism, and closure.
A core strategy for gamifying is to provide rewards for players for accomplishing desired tasks. Types of rewards include points, achievement badges or levels, the filling of a progress bar, and providing the user with virtual currency.
Competition is another element of games that can be used in gamification. Making the rewards for accomplishing tasks visible to other players or providing leader boards are ways of encouraging players to compete."
Maybe if the names for the levels weren't so goofy i'd be more open to it. So do me a favor make one special level for people like me. You can call it: OLD FART... and just leave me there
