I think back in the 90's the French market was about half Casio and half TI, and it took a while before TI finally starts agressively promoting their products outside USA. In France they had a lot of opportunities, but Casio calcs still remain widely used, especially the monochrome models.

Re: Expanding the Site by DJ OmnimagaDJ Omnimaga, 12 Aug 2016 03:56

I just registered all of the <calculator>story wikis, so that part is done. I'm going to focus my efforts on documenting the Casio community first, and might reach out to a few people in the Casio community for help. I also noticed that the Casio community has a large French component. Why is that?

Re: Expanding the Site by burrburr, 06 Jul 2016 03:02

I believe that there was a short period of time in mid-2008 where the Casio community was bigger than the TI community, but that was short-lived. Something particular about the Casio community is that about 80% of it is French-speaking.I'm thinking there should just be one wiki, but perhaps split by calculator brands as you mention above rather than separate sites.

Re: Expanding the Site by DJ OmnimagaDJ Omnimaga, 05 Jul 2016 23:19

I have also only been involved with the TI community, but I have always been curious about the other calculator communities (Casio, Sharp, HP). I did some cursory research, and it appears that the other calculator communities are quite small in comparison to the TI community and that there is no equivalent wiki community site.

I am not exactly sure how to best organize the different calculator information. Perhaps placing each of the other calculator-based pages in their own calculator namespace is the cleanest way to go — for example, casio:casiocalc.org, hp:hpcalc.org, etc. I could also create a separate Wikidot wiki for each calculator — Casio Story, Sharp Story, HP Story — but I don't think that is really necessary. However, it might be good to register those wikis and redirect them to TI Story just so somebody else can't.

Re: Expanding the Site by burrburr, 05 Jul 2016 17:48

IMHO it should remain about calculators, but I think it should also include HP, Casio and maybe even Sharp graphing calculator sites info. I don't know how such info should be laid out, though. For Casio, most sites were hosted on Earthforge so whether we can find info about them would depend of if Earthforge sites are still publicly available in the wayback machine (which is no longer a guarantee with their robots.txt glitch)

EDIT: Lol with this forum public again, it looks like I can add the post statistics to the stats page :P

Re: Expanding the Site by DJ OmnimagaDJ Omnimaga, 05 Jul 2016 03:19

I have no problem with it, although I've only ever been involved with the TI scene, I think it would be good to include Casio, HP, etc. if they don't already have their own equivalent Wiki type site :)

Re: Expanding the Site by James_VJames_V, 04 Jul 2016 22:30

What do you guys think about expanding the site to include non-TI calculator info?

Expanding the Site by burrburr, 04 Jul 2016 11:02

The decision to disable editing was actually made a long time ago as a compromise to completely pulling the plug on the site; the information will still be available as long as Wikidot is willing to host the site. I don't want to sound selfish, but TI Story was started and grown almost entirely through my efforts, so I will not be handing the site off to someone else. I believe WikiTI has a history section, you could always contribute there…

Re: Editing disabled? by burrburr, 05 Aug 2013 18:08

Hey, why is editing disabled? I and others would like to contribute…

Really? I never set that up… You are on my contacts list, so you can read my actual email adress and do it from there. Sorry about that!

Well, I think this site (TI-Story) is mainly meant to be used as a wiki, and I don't think the forum is that important.
On the other hand, I'm not too acquainted with wikidot and this kind of things.

Well, I guess there won't be a problem to use TI-Basic commands since everyone's allowed to use them?
And if you mean use part of TI-Basic CODE of other people, I guess you should ask them personally, unless it's just a very simple code.

Also, I tried replying to your PM, but apparently I cannot since you only allow specific members to PM you.

One reason this site has substantially died down is probably because there are no programming categories. Why were they excluded from this site and added into others by Burr, like the TI|BD forums?

Oh, sorry; I was referring to the TI-BASIC language in general. I like to take the different commands and use them unconventionally; or, in other words, I like to:

"…push Ti-Basic to the end of its possibilities."

:D

Re: Hello World by (account deleted), 22 Jan 2013 11:57

Yes, but which codes are provided? Are you talking about source-codes of projects that have their own page on this wiki?
You could give a link otherwise?

I was saying the same thing you were phrasing in your last post: I like to use the codes provided (TI-BASIC) and stretch it to its limits. :D

Re: Hello World by (account deleted), 20 Jan 2013 22:47

TI-Basic is one of the only programming langauages that I know(I don't know any PC langauge). But I kinda prefer it above axe and newprog, since it's cool to push Ti-Basic to the end of it's possibilities.
However, I actually meant, with my previous post, which codes do you want to use? As far as I know I haven't seen any codes given somewhere on this site? (Ofcourse, this site is big and I haven't seen everything yet.)

BASIC is my preferred coding. :) What about you?

Re: Hello World by (account deleted), 18 Jan 2013 01:19

Hi,
perhaps you could specify which exact codes you are talking about?

I am just coming to the site for the first time. Greetings! I like to use the codes provided unconventionally and am currently working on the project Scope OS I.
