[Meta] PaleoHacks Software Questions

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 01, 2011 at 4:45 PM

  • What is the name of the software that PaleoHacks uses? I've seen it other places and am curious.

  • Has anyone else had differences in the their points not being updated? For the most part, I could care less about these point things (though I do think it is an ingenious way to crowd manage the conversation...also has a draw back to limit potential fresh thinking...aka the hidden dangerous of one-person-one-vote democracy defending itself from innovation), but I do find it interesting that for me they are not being updated in the gray box or on my own stats page, but will be show up with higher points in a particular question that I answered. Any thoughts on why this is? Similar experience?

Thanks, Justin

when I look at the stackexchange site it says there are only 46 sites and this is not listed. so is this part of that network, or independant of it. Can someone use this software outside of that network? thanks

There you go, accounts merged. Your questions and answers and reputation points from the other account are now in this one.

@WCC Paul...oh...that makes sense. Thanks for your help. ...yes, I'd love to stream line the accounts...either one will work. Thanks again. @ Melissa, thanks for the info.

Justin, this is what I think is going on. The 107/97 thing is easy: you just got upvoted. The 107/131 thing is because you have two accounts: both with the name Justin, both with the same auto-generated avatar pattern, but nevertheless different accounts. One is 3519, the other is 3560 (look at the four-digit number in your URL). I'm guessing you log into one of them in one place and the other in another place? We can merge the two accounts, if you want. You just have to tell us which one of the two (which four-digit number) you want to subsume the other.

...so back to my second question...to give an example...now my numbers say 107 in both my gray box and my stats page. before my gay box and stats page said 97, but under my answers to a question it said 131...now it is coordinated but dropped to 107 in 20 minutes??? Can someone explain this to me? I could see why this would be the case from the FAQ's.

...yes, me too, I'm an adult educator...also studying adult learning and development and this format is facinating to me as both a 'hacker' but also a student-educator interested in the phenomena of hacking...and this format is facinating for those of us who are looking for tools to facilitate learning-growth-development...scaffolding our own growth. Cheers to that!

Can't answer the question, but I think it's a good one. As a former teacher, I find it fascinating that people (myself included) are highly motivated to post, read, and study in this format. Certainly, college classes would benefit from using a similar setup, perhaps to discuss the readings. Might enhance participation. And I think high schoolers could benefit as well.

Software is Stack Exchange. They have a whole network of sites based on it.

I'm guessing that the database caches pages or stats and that's why its not updating uniformly. Clear your cache and try again - see if its consistent throughout?

Stack exchange is the programming set , and when I've wanted to learn more about how it is being implemented and used I check out http://meta.stackoverflow.com/ and read around.

Very educational to me, I always get a bit more out of watching people troubleshooting a question or problem than I do out of reading a manual.

Come to think of it, that may be why I love paleohacks so much!
