Not sure if this has been brought up in this rather long thread, but anyway;
I am a little bit confused about the spaces and subspaces. Right now we have e.g. the "Applicatoin Development in PL/SQL space
where e.g. Forms, Reports and SQL Developer are Subspaces. This pretty much reflects the Categories and Subcategories in the old Forum Software. However now we have a post in the Application Development in PL/SQL
Which indeed is PL/SQL related...however wouldn't that collide with the "real" SQL and PL/SQL Space? If it stays that way I guess we will have a lot of PL/SQL related questions in there from newcomers, as right now the SQL and PL/SQL forum is hidden in the Database Space whereas the Application Development in PL/SQL Space is right on the front page...?
Took me a while to understand what you were saying Christian, but I think I've got it...
You're saying that people can post in the "Application Development in PL/SQL" space without going to the specific sub-spaces within it... and hence they may perceive it's ok to post PL/SQL coding questions in there which really should be in the "SQL and PL/SQL" space?
I don't know what the intention is by the admin to deal with such things, but I'm getting a feeling that these "spaces" are not tight places like the forums.
which is actually in the SQL Developer (not for general SQL/PLSQL questions), but because Marcus has replied to the OP to say it should be in the SQL and PL/SQL space, the new forum software obviously picked up on that and showed it over in the SQL and PL/SQL space, so just the mention of it (a link to the space) can make it magically 'appear' over in the space without it having to be moved, and therefore I guess people over in that space can come to the rescue (bring rescued from space sounds good )
So, I guess a solution would just be for people to mentione the "space" in which the question is relevant, and it will do it's magical stuff and draw in the relevant skilled people.
Edit: LOL! I've just gone to the SQL and PL/SQL space and it's now showing this thread with your message saying "ChristianErlinger mentioned SQL and PL/SQL"
Things are certainly floating about in space!

Sorry for the confusion . Sometimes I get lost when translating the nested sentences coming to my mind in my native tongue to english while posting...

Exactly. In terms of the Old Forums I would compare that to be able to post to a Category (which was not possible); like post to the Technology Network Community, or to "Oracle Database".

So it seems. By mentioning the Application Development in [....] Space in this thread we have this thread linked in the "Overview" in the "Application Development in [....]". However if you click on the "Content" tab this is gone. To test I created a test post directly in the Space:The specified item was not found. which is also visible in the "Content" tab. I guess the "Overview" might serve some sort of Tagging whatsoever so I can see all discussions "tagged" with the Space name. I can however see some "Please Post your question in the correct forum located at [....]" in that Overview .
I am even able to post Questions to the Development Tools Space, where right now there is also a Question related to Forms posted.
As said if I were new to the Oracle Forums and would have a question regarding PL/SQL it would go straight foreward to the "Application Development in PL/SQL" Space instead the correct one. Why would I know that there is only Forms and Reports which also use PL/SQL in there . In the previous Software we of course had posts in the wrong forums, but now that it is possible to post to 2 Spaces with almost the same name this certainly won't decrease posts in the wrong space...
Yeah - the floating window only floats for a short while before disappearing. But I have managed to highlight and copy the contents each time for filing bug reports.
Not sure what the intention is ito UI design with that floating window - a notification window should be acknowledge, and not disappear while still reading the notification.
We have to accept the change of new OTN look, Included many features( like, add friend, Social networks, PDF.. so on). Great work.
Coming to my point.....
May be am asking the routine question, I read many posts from users. But unable to understand how these points are allotted.
Initially i guess my points were around 10000 change and now after upgrade of OTN i can see them 13000 change, I would like to understand how they have been given and also earlier points will be given based on "Helpful" or "Correct" with 5 or 10 points, now i can see even more odd numbers, Ex: 13,704. Is there any reference manual to know whether they based on the number of posts or the helpful/correct answers?
Thank you all admins. Have a great day.

I get the same error as you - I wonder if PhHein can see it because they're a moderator and we're not?
