Shock as MozillaZine Readers Turn to Slashdot for Accurate Information

Thursday October 31st, 2002

For our last poll, we asked you where else you go to get Mozilla news. 848 of you answered with Slashdot getting 30% of the vote, almost twice as much as its nearest rival, MozillaNews, with 17%. The third-placed 'None of the above' option was favoured by 16% of you, which frankly tells us very little. FUD specialist MozillaQuest came in fifth with 8% of the vote, which concerns us slightly. 5% of you rely on mainstream tech news sites such as CNET's or eWeek while 4% of you prefer the weblog style of Blogzilla. Newcomers Planet Mozilla and MozFan didn't do so well with 1% and 0% of the vote respectively. NewsForge, with 1%, also did surprisingly badly, especially considering the amount of news we steal from them. Finally, 14% of you just go wherever telnet to port 80 will take you.

For our next poll, we'd like to know what your favourite Phoenix theme is. The options are taken from the lists at the mozdev Themes project and David Tenser's Phoenix Help so don't blame us if your favourite theme isn't listed. Go and vote now or just sit on the fence and watch the latest results.

#59 Is this for real?

I'm shocked!!! Never in my Life would I have imagined such sh*t here in TalkBack, and by such reconized names in the Mozilla community (even more shocking). Funny enough this whole argument started out by a comment (critical point of view) by redvine, simple questioning the validity of Phoenix, and why Mozillazine is so Pro-Phoenix.

On a more serious note, as I understand why Phoenix is "in the news", as it is our current point of interest (hell yeah I'm a Phoenix & Moz user) but I do also estime redvine's point of concern.

As much "better" (depending on what you like) Phoenix is, mozilla still is our FlagShip product, and the core technology of Phoenix, heck, if Moz sleeps, phoenix is dead.

It would be nice to get some more updates on current development in Moz, like features, etc. As Mozillazine used to post last year (autocompltee was a big article, etc.). True most articles are "User submited" but was also have a large amount of people who are directly involved with Moz's development who could inform us.

I'm not saying how things "should be", just how I would "Like" things to be... we forget what Talkback is all about, sharing points of views and sharing information.

Just my 2c!
