Want an Arch Linux blog ? http://archlinux.me/username

Want an Arch Linux blog ?  http://archlinux.me/username

See http://archlinux.me for examples of what the blogs will look like smile  For about the last 3 weeks I have been testing out software for archlinux.me blogs, based on WordPress.  So far, things have went very well.
I am about ready to open things up to more users, if anyone is interested.  I have a few days before I will be able to setup new users, as I am currently in the process of moving the entire setup off my development server to it's own server that has more bandwidth and bigger pipes.  Several nice add-ons include: Syntax highlighting using GeSHi, Twitter messages, Ping.fm updates, and more.


Here are a few of the terms.....
YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 25 POSTS ON ARCHLINUX.ORG TO REQUEST A BLOG
THEN you MUST do THESE two things for it to be created -- it's simple, I promise.
1. Post your request in this thread.
Why you ask, well, two reasons, the first reason is that I am able to verify very quickly if you have more than 25 posts. The second reason is that I know your read the stuff below here.

2. Send me an email or PM that has your current email address and archlinux.org username.
Why ?? -- I need your email address to enter in the software in order to create your blog account and have it auto email you  your password username.
Please don't post your email in this thread, it makes you look stupid, the spam bots will eat  you ALIVE.... tongue

#1 No guarantee of uptime, or service, or anything else ......period. (hey, it's free, don't bitch).
     The uptime shouldn't be an issue since it's on it's own server, neither should service for that matter, but this is just cya stuff for me.

#2 Blogs should be Arch related, you need to have some arch content, if not ... go use blogger. Obviously your not my target user.

#3 Don't ask me to change the theme..... it stays, and there is only one (for the moment).  It resembles the main Arch theme, as it should.

#4 If you ask for an account, USE IT.  I may set these up manually/individually to keep away the bots, and I really hate wasting my time, as I'm sure you do too.

#5 Account Inactivity: I will terminate your account in accordance with #4, if you don't bother posting for 6 months.

#6 archlinux.me reserves the right to cancel service at any time without notice for any reason.

#7 archlinux.me has no official affiliation with archlinux.org

#8 Any changes to the TOS will be posted in this thread ...... and the TOS are subject to change without notice.

#9 Unethical behavior will get your account suspended or closed, totallyat the discretion of the Site Administrators. (yea, that'd be me)

#10 I reserve the right to refuse service.

#11 YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 25 POSTS ON ARCHLINUX.ORG TO REQUEST A BLOG !!!
       (very rarely will exceptions to this be made.)

#12 It's free ........ so see #1

By posting your request , you agree to the Terms of Service above and have read this message.

I think the terms above pretty much cover it.  Hopefully none are to restrictive, they are not intended to be. 
Basically, that's just cya stuff smile  I have no plans to shut down archlinux.me..... but crap happens...... I can't foretell the future.

If you meet the 25 post requirement, and want a blog, please feel free to request one in this thread.  Once the server is setup and running, I will setup blogs on a first come first serve basis. 
Your blog will be http://archlinux.me/YOURUSERNAME   Example, mine is:  http://archlinux.me/crouse

REMEMBER: YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 25 POSTS ON ARCHLINUX.ORG TO REQUEST A BLOG
THEN you MUST do THESE two things for it to be created -- it's simple, I promise.
1. Post your request in this thread.
Why you ask, well, two reasons, the first reason is that I am able to verify very quickly if you have more than 25 posts. The second reason is that I know your read the stuff below here.

2. Send me an email or PM that has your current email address and archlinux.org username.
Why ?? -- I need your email address to enter in the software in order to create your blog account and have it auto email you  your password username.
Please don't post your email in this thread, it makes you look stupid, the spam bots will eat  you ALIVE.... tongue

Note to moderator -- if appropriate, could this be stickied please. Thanks, Crouse.

Re: Want an Arch Linux blog ? http://archlinux.me/username

I'd like one too please. I need a place to detail my Linux escapades and notes. I have a blog for my musical discoveries but I've never bothered to make a Linux blog.

Re: Want an Arch Linux blog ? http://archlinux.me/username

I got to test this stuff and I have to say either crouse or wordpress (or both) has done a terrific job. The interface is slick and everything is quick and painless (if you turn off wysiwyg editing). Unfortunately, I'm not sure I've met my minimum quote of Arch-related content! :-D

I thought about that too but that implies that Arch is something you could bitch about.

Re: Want an Arch Linux blog ? http://archlinux.me/username

The blog looks very slick!

I would like a blog, please. I plan to document my experiences installing and using Arch in the odd event that it should prove helpful to someone else. Thanks.

Re: Want an Arch Linux blog ? http://archlinux.me/username

I'd like one please. Maybe to document what I do and what I'd like to do with XMonad and Arch Linux.

Great idea Crouse.

Re: Want an Arch Linux blog ? http://archlinux.me/username

looks like a nice usage of wordpress-µ.

@crouse.. another alternative would be hostname based (username.archlinux.me). It just needs wildcard dns and a config change, as I recall. It would also be neat to have a 'community arch planet' to complement the 'dev arch planet'. I have one setup for my own personal use. If you want some help setting one up, or are interested, drop me an email.

Anyway, nice to see the arch community branching out.

Maybe there should be a list of all these blogs somewhere... maybe at the top of this thread?

This is indeed a good idea.  Everyone would benefit in the long run.


archlinux - please read this and this — twice — then ask questions.

I was thinking about integrating "planet" software, I'm just not sure how much work that would entail, i've only looked at the code briefly once, and I don't know if it presented any issues or not, I don't remember.

Re: Want an Arch Linux blog ? http://archlinux.me/username

While this is neat (good job setting it up, nice ui, very-helpful to community), I'd like to post a couple thoughts to mull over:

Is this blog site going to be around for a while?  Do you really want to run something like this for 5, 10 years?

Are you interested inmaintaining such a site for all those years?  And that includes: software updates, adding/deleting users, censoring posts off-topic or lewd posts...?

Have you thought about integrating this with the Arch site proper?  Might be possible to include blogs on the Arch page so that people can actually find them then having to dig through old forum posts to find your site.  Have you talked to any developers and see if there is any interest in this?

While running a blog site does sound interesting, it is alot of work.  Another possible approach that will take less maintenance and provide for a longer lasting site would to be to create a planet site.  For example planet larry (Gentoo users planet) does good and gets a good amount of readership.  This way people could choose the blogging software/site they'd like to use.

Anyways, blah, blah... like the thought.

I'd like one, too.

Luckily, I just got above 25 posts on archlinux.org smile But if that counts to the effort, I got another 71 posts on archlinux.de, the nick is the same.
