    how's the ratings
    Ali Diouri
    @theshadowx
    don't forget to contact https://sourceforge.net/ guys
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    Yeah I contacted them, here it is: https://sourceforge.net/projects/notes.mirror/
    Ratings? You mean the traffic?
    Here's the downlaods statistics http://www.somsubhra.com/github-release-stats/?username=nuttyartist&repository=notes
    And from Google Analytics I can see a slight increase in traffic (25% compared to last month), but not that much.
    I didn't do yet any emailing for blogs and stuff. I mainly want to target Windows blogs.
    I think that is where we could see spike in traffic, and increasing our user base.
    Currently most of the traffic comes from Google searches.

    @theshadowx Does Symantec block 0.9.0?
    I could file for the whitelisting submission of Symantec, but they require a buisness email, which will cost us 50$ on Wix.
    Ali Diouri
    @theshadowx
    is 50$ for once or each month

    @nuttyartist
    For a year

    it's up to you

    @nuttyartist
    I didn't had time to work on Notes yet. I plan on working on it tomorrow. We should check if it's now gained enough popularity and had been whitelisted by Microsoft.
    I got a Mac so I had to transfer everything to it. What a great experience it is to use this machine.
    Ali Diouri
    @theshadowx
    I'm not fan of mac ;)
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    Have you used a Mac (not from a VM)?
    Ali Diouri
    @theshadowx
    nope
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    I'm telling ya it's really great
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    What about the PR in the repo?
    Aren't you proceeding with that?
    Ali Diouri
    @theshadowx
    it's just to sync dev branch with the master
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    Ok, is there a reason why you haven't merged it?
    Ali Diouri
    @theshadowx
    just to let you know
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    Ah ok, you can merge these kinds of PR's in the future.
    Ali Diouri
    @theshadowx
    ok

    Hi there. I'm new to using github in general so maybe this is not a specific notes thing... but I'm having trouble installing it. When I get to Compiling and I type in "qmake ../src" terminal tells me "Cannot find file: ../src."
    notaninjaa
    @notaninjaa
    Oh nevermind. I found your actual website and used the .deb there! Thanks
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    Great :)

    I want to start contributing to open-source, I know c++ and some basic Qt. Would you guys like help with anything?
    PS: the ui looks great
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist

    Hello there, @ImAliMoussa!

    While our current version 1.0.0 will stay open source, are next version is going to be closed-source. So no contributions are needed any more for our original project. Thanks for asking though. Please don't let this let you down, there are plenty of other cool open source software that you can help grow and put a dent in. Best regards.

    I'm thinking about reviving this place.
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    Some metrics: We had more than 1.7 million visitors to the website since launch.

    As you can see, the keyword notes is quite seasonal.

    @bjorn
    @nuttyartist Please tell me you changed your mind about that statement of making the next version closed-source.
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    I did change my mind! @bjorn
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    The motivation came from the lack of progress and the stillness in development. I wanted to create incentives for people to work with me on this. But I really believe in keeping Notes open-source, no matter what. It doesn't mean that I want to keep Notes free as a beer (but will always keep it free as speech) - I might charge money for it to get rid of ads and earn more money or just charge to provide our own syncing, and I may not charge at all, it's not yet definitive. But Notes will stay open-source.

    @nuttyartist there are many ways to earn money while it is still open-source and free, isn't that true @bjorn ?
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    I keep an open mind about it. What like, @theshadowx?
    Ruby Mamistvalove
    @nuttyartist
    (Btw, no plans to charge money for Notes in the near future)
