I had a note to let both of you know when we got round to creating this community, but you are too sharp-eyed for that to be necessary :)

Ooh! Where are my :sunglasses:! I wonder if that yellow can be desaturated a tick?
2020-05-30 20:06:43  Jack Douglas  replying to  David
I think we should see what it looks like with some questions filling up the space — it's a big area of yellow at the moment :)
2020-05-30 20:12:43  David  replying to  Jack Douglas
True, very true!

The ["tones" chart on this site]( (towards the bottom of the page) is useful for that sort of thing — again, you've probably got your own favourite tools for this. TA is certainly growing!

you are an amazing mine of resources!

I want to double-check whether a question is appropriate to post here. Is there a meta post somewhere about that?
2020-05-31 20:35:51  Jack Douglas  replying to  Pax
no it's just 'ask in chat' at the moment :)
2020-05-31 20:36:12  Jack Douglas
I mean we will probably need a meta post here about scope at some point
2020-05-31 20:36:33  Jack Douglas
although I imagine it will be relatively straightforward for python?
2020-05-31 20:38:21  Pax
Ok. I will ask a question and people can just put in chat if it is not appropriate.

@Jack  Tags for my question: jinja ?

added! and thanks for asking the first question here :)

first time here. I have no idea how this works... This is a test. Do I need a profile?
2020-06-03 09:49:00  anoldmaninthesea
I think I've changed my  user name...

you've already got one :) you're set up for full participation in all public TA networks

Is this kind of question in-scope: when X python package is more appropriate to use over Y python package? Specifically, [this]( -- Both packages  have the same decorator API ([vcrpy]( vs [pytest-vcr](

    print("Hello, %s!"%(participant))

Hmm.. an "if you're new.." section might be useful ;-)
2020-06-20 19:56:02  Jack Douglas  replying to  thebjorn
you mean just here in python.ta or generally?
2020-06-20 19:57:47  Jack Douglas
some communities (notably tex.ta and godegolf.ta do have 'about' pages that are easy to find
2020-06-20 19:58:07  Jack Douglas
eventually we'll get that everywhere…

In case people here are interested,

Thanks for this, Pax. Would it be suitable, do you think, for someone who has just dabbled in PHP? I would like (in my amateur way) to learn some Python, though, and this might be a good way in. Thoughts?

I actually haven't gone through the course myself but it sounds like if you know common programming concepts, you'd be able to follow the course.
