Link MauveOk, so we need a wiki account, but that’s it.
jcbrandYou could also paste here, but there's no 100% guarantee that it'll be noticed
SeveYou can paste it here
SeveI will add them
SaltyBonesLink Mauve, from experience, just sending them to jc also works ;)
SaltyBonesah, should have read the rest of the discussion m)
SeveI was going to ask if it would be interesting if we translate the newsletter (It's not that important if we link to sites that are not translated)
But since it's a newsletter, we cannot do that, I guess.
jcbrandThat's a premium service, only for you SaltyBones
SeveWhat a luxury, SaltyBones.
jcbrandConcerning non-English content... I do want to include it. Currently there's one German article and it links to a Google Translate English version and the original German version
jcbrandSo that also applies to French Link Mauve
Link MauveMaybe we could partner with LinuxFR to provide a simultaneous translation in French.
jcbrandBut then we need to maintain two newsletters
Link MauveThey have the tools and community to help with that, they’ve done it for the release of Prosody 0.10 for instance.
jcbrandWhere do people sign up for the french one?
jcbrandWe could link to the french one from the xmpp.org/newsletter.html
SeveThe thing is I can translate for spanish and catalan, but that's the problem, having newsletters for each of them. I'm not sure.
jcbrandConcerning something else... analytics. I think other newsletters include a URL parameter in the links to indicate that themselves as the referrer, so that sites can see that traffic is driven to them from the newsletter
jcbrandDoes anyone know more about how best to do this?
SaltyBonesDoesn't tinyletter do that for you?
jcbrandPerhaps, I actually don't know
SaltyBonesOr do you mean checking where other links come from?
SaltyBonesnow I get it
jcbrandNo, I mean adding the referrer to the outgoing links
jcbrandTwitter also does it
mathieui(and I hate it with the intensity of a thousand suns)
jcbrandIt's a good advertisement for the newsletter IMO
mathieuiwell, I don’t like being tracked :p, but I understand the rationale
mathieuiI think it’s utm_source or something
mathieuiprobably website-specific though
SaltyBonesmathieui, so turn of referrer?
SaltyBonesmathieui, so turn off referrer?
jcbrandYes, utm_source... I've only noticed it in URLs, I don't really know how it works. Is it really tracking though?
SamWhitedYou're not being tracked, no one knows who you are, just that 30 people showed up from Google and 10 from xmpp.org, or wherever
SaltyBonesI mean this no pixel or whatever tracking :)
Link MauveSaltyBones, it’s in the URL, so it gets copied even if you didn’t click on a link manually.
