a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DDG not cool 4 years and 3 months ago
Got a notification :). Seriously, we/I appreciate the feedback.

Please first know that the community platform (this site) is completely open source and independent from the main search engine (duckduckgo.com). While we do have dedicated staff that support it, it is understaffed and we are actively looking for help (both volunteer and paid).

The best way to report community platform issues at https://github.com/duckduckgo/community-.... The ideas forum you referenced is strictly for instant answer ideas, which is probably why it was flagged as not an instant answer idea there.

That said, this particular issue is probably my fault. I didn't want people ultimately confusing user pages with regular pages and so internally argued for moving them to /user/. Not all changes have been made as a repercussion of this action. Additionally, it has been some time between releases. The latter we're working on. That is, we're trying to move to more weekly releases of the community platform and be more transparent about what is being worked on.

This is what we use for maps, and pretty much why.

What link is this coming up for? When I look at

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=postgresql+epo...

I see the first link to

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/s...

which references current.

We do have some old programming/sysadmin docs in our fathead plugin system though (https://github.com/duckduckgo/zeroclicki...). If any of these are out of date we could really use help updating them. A lot are probably just changing version numbers.

Also, some of these docs are closed source and I just opened an issue to open all of them.

On Java, can you explain a bit more on a query example? We have docs as instant answers a la

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Java+split

but they are using a newer version. This is open source at

Sorry -- I didn't mean to assume knowledge, but your initial response mentioned view source :).

Does it work fine in other browsers and do you have anything enabled that may be messing with JavaScript like noscript?

I'm very curious why you find it slow and bloated with ads. We only ever have one ad as opposed to many in other search engines.

Slowness could be a bug of some sort -- what area of the world are you in?

In terms of the stories, unfortunately we have no data export feature right now.
