I am back to Hubzilla after a break. I can now use it again, test it, feel it. Hubzilla is hard to explain.
My goal for this september was to create a new channel as I explained on my previous article.
Creation of a new channel. Go in the old channel, check if a contact is usefull if no : delete it. If I had a contact with a channel, I add it to the new channel. I call that manual moving.
I already read something about a possibility of changing the name of a channel. But i don’t remember where it was and it seems to me complicated. Don’t forget that the age of my brain is 6 year old.
On time I wanted to add Mike. I though that it would be nice to read what he wrote because he is the creator of Hubzilla. He already helped me for different things and even understand sometimes me. I know that my english is not perfect and sometimes it is not easy to express confusion clearly. He even keep some of my suggestion to improve hubzilla. So I decided to add him in my relation list.
I go to the relation list and then add the address firstname.lastname@example.org then I see that !!!!
I understood that I must pay 10$ to continue. I don’t have anymore a paypal account. I though that it was free to add a relation in hubzilla.
I understand that free solfware needs sometimes money and we can put possibility to make gift for a project. But I never seen that we have to pay for a relation request.
I stoped there because as I see myself I have no chance to be accepted. I am not programer, just a critical user.
Now it is not possible for me to talk with mike with hubzilla. But I notice that he understand french and he can reply with gnusocial. I will ask him questions with gnusocial or with public posts. It will be a message in a bottle hoping that it target someone.
Otherwise Hubzilla is a wonderfull communication tools for community.
