Here is the forum I refeering to:http://www.ozgurlukicin.com/forum/english/
I think they could develope it in a serious way. But now it's mixed in turkish/english.
If they want a english section there then they must do it in a better way.
Registration is in turkish etc.. And some topics there are in turkish to.
It's more or less a joke now.
If thats all they can do than it's better with only turkish.
Pardus are now at place 36 at Distrowatch and going down.
I think this is one of the reasons.
No good marketing/promotion material to as I write in this bug report.
Bug # 12727
I have my doubts that they just not will do anything with that report..Over a year old and still no progress.
If Pardus was more popular I think they would benefit from it in the long run.
And in my personal opinion Distrowatch are very important in this aspect.
I agree what is written here:
"There is one slogan I’ve heard from a former community manager “An open source project without a community is deficient.” and this may not be more true"
We have stressed the importance of the product before, but it never suffices. It may be possible to continue a project without financing, a team and a community; but if you do not have any users, you are doomed
. Don’t forget you are responsible to create awareness about your product in the user base. Don’t expect the users flock to your site and start downloading. Once you have users do not try to shape them, instead listen to them."http://blog.erkantekman.org/?cat=12
So it's a lot Pardus could do.
