Twitter Account

Post by ElderTroll » 09 Mar 2012, 12:40

Nicolay gave me the password to the twitter account. So if someone wants to take control of that please pm me.


He also said,
(And in case you didn't
know you can set up github to post commits automatically, in
Admin->Service Hooks->Twitter.)
“A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.”

Thanks, but rather pointless IMHO. From what I remember this would only send commits in the master branch of my repository to twitter. Since Nico's departure we have started to use the capabilities of git to a much larger degree, which also means that rarely ever anything happens in this branch. And when something happens, then it is several dozen commit at a time, which seems to hit a posting limit on twitter and therefore most of the updates would be lost anyway.

Hey all, the current name of the twitter is openmw_commits. Is everyone ok if I change it to just OpenMW, and use it for more general social networking, instead of commits? Twitter supports changing your account name, so it can be done!

Github has rss feed for commits.

See my post above. It's mostly useless, since we changed the way how we use git a lot since Nico's days. The account would be silent most of the time, with occasional huge loads of commit message that most likely exceed automatic posting limits on Twitter.

I think that if is someone would want to get fresh news rss feed is the way to go.

Btw everyone, if you are a dev or otherwise a member of the team, and @openmw_project is not already following you, let me know your twitter handle, so I can follow you!
