In the past few months, I've posted several questions to this list
regarding the rail scaffold generator, and how it works. None of the
posting have received even one reply. Considering the caliber of the
talent that lurks here, and the quality of the replies to other post,
I don't think it's because no one understands the subject matter.
So, now I'm wondering: is these the wrong venue for scaffolding
questions? Is there a better one? Is scaffolding just something that
one does not discuss in polite company?
I don't think the problem is that you're discussing scaffolding, per
se. I think the problem is that you're discussing the internal workings
of Rails. A lot of the people on this group aren't really concerned
Also, a lot of your posts are related to Markaby, which I don't think
is very commonly used. Even though your questions about the scaffold
generator aren't Markaby-specific, framing the questions with an intro
about Markaby is probably going to turn people off of what was already
going to be a low readership anyway.
I've just replied to your scaffold_generator questions, but in future
it might be coming up with a subject like "Questions about scaffold
generator internals", which would attract the right people, rather than
"understanding scaffolding", which makes it sound as if you are asking
a question about *using* scaffolding.
