How do we share instructive content of Q&A forum more efficiently

asked 2015-08-22 13:45:06 -0500

hi there,

I would firstly like to thank everyone who contributed to the forum.

Most of the things I know about OpenCV I have learned from the answers to the questions here.

In my spare time I read old posts and tried the written code or methods of suggested solutions.

I wanted to collect the instructive code of answers in a Repository on Github So far I have accumulated some code here and will continue to do so.

is it possible to open an offical Repository like "" to collect such instructive examples.

i think by this way content of the forum will be reachable efficiently.

just saying: the 'meta answers.opencv forum' is here:

@berak do you mean that I must ask this question there

nope. just saying, that a 'meta' complaint is more adequate there.

(hope, we'll see you with 'mod' super-power here, soon ;)

very nice github repo !

the noteworthy_content tag is your latest idea ? like a best_of_qa ? might be a good way to look for popular answers !

About "" it's a good idea.

@StevenPuttemans@berak@LBerger@Tetragramm@pklab@Balaji R @theodore@LorenaGdL@Eduardo@kbarni@FooBar@Siegfried@Mathieu Barnachon .... what is your opinion about requesting a new repo "" (maybe a better name ) in it we will gather useful infos and code. maybe the team will grow

In my opinion, making a complete new repo just for this is bollocks. I would prefer extending the examples/tutorials/wiki page base of the existing OpenCV github with keepable content. I push every author of a nice answer to post it as a sample or tutorial and we should keep doing that. Simply making yet another location of OpenCV source will not help in maintaining everything.

It already exists Github, blogpost, ...

In my opinion, it should be something like to be able to rate code, comment, etc. But it will require a new infrastructure, large support and the Matlab community is less spread than the C++ / OpenCV community.

In order to facilitate finding useful content i tagged some questions as

to those who think that it would be useful i suggest to do same

any suggestion about the names of the tags or new category?

I think that perfect solution and Noteworthy Content are relative idea. I think vote +1 is used for that.

I think that something like tested (compiled and run) with opencv 2.4.2,.., 3.0.0 on linux, windows ...and give a result may be usefull
