Please be aware that the SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be shut down on August 29th, 2024 when all it's content will be migrated to the SAP Community.

As a tag, "sqla" is confusing... does it mean "SQL Anywhere"? Does it mean this website "SQLA"?

As a classification, "sqla" is not helpful... this whole website is about SQL Anywhere, and there are other tags like "faq" and "meta" if you want to talk about the website itself.

So, in a little while, I'm gonna zap all sqla tags. That means all sorts of OLD QUESTIONS are going to bubble up to the top of the "active questions" list...

...sorry about that.

That "clean-up" seems very reasonable to me:)

Another bounty! Post any answer, get 100 points! ...oh, and by the way, I've been fiddling with tags again, which is another reason old questions are bubbling up to the top of the Recent Questions list. The "sqla" tag may be gone, but the "sqla-announcement" is taking its place... more than just a "faq", it's a "new faq".

The tag "sqla-announcement" seams an appropriate choice for admin messages to all users. But would I want to use this tags when asking questions about SQLA?

Speaking about FAQ, there's one thing I stumbled upon: before I log in, there's a banner in the top section containing a link to the FAQ section.

When logged in, I can't find any hint to the FAQ page anymore. I wanted to look for changes that might have happend. Ok, that's not a real issue, a workaround would be to log out or go directly to

No, the "sqla-announcement" tag means "this is something new about SQLA itself"... I could have tagged it "breck-shouting" :)

The actual SQLA "faq" page hasn't been updated in months. It's on my to-do list, but not near the top. Another item that is not near the top is "clean up the GUI". You can probably get those items moved by shouting and screaming... whether that will cause the items to move UP or DOWN is to be determined :)

Speaking of the to-do list... a lot of items will NOT get done until near (or possibly even after) the go-live date for SQLA.

(04 Feb '10, 10:12) Breck Carter

What is the go-live date? Unknown, possibly later in February 2010.

(04 Feb '10, 10:13) Breck Carter

A better question is "Will SQLA go live?" That is also unknown. I'm guessing "probably yes"... but we gotta have backup first.
