Few questions about CR4

01/22/2009 12:11 AM

Hi, I am a civil engineer in our country working in the field of engineering education. My purpose in joining this site is for me to learn the features and functionality of CR4. I am planning to build a site that accepts registration and hoping to build a community of engineering students from inside and outside my country. Here are my questions:

1. Is this site uses an open-source CMS, if so, what is it?

2. How many people are involved in building this site?

3. How long was the development time?

Thanks in advance. BTW, what is the meaning of CR4?

why should i tell you because you can build a better site than my CR4. All my members and advertisers will be running off to your site then what will I do?

what is the meaning of CR4? i forgot. It can be Common Room 4 or Conference Room 4.

the rest 3 Rooms (CR1 + CR2 + CR3) washhed away in the last tsunami.

I will exercise patience in waiting for someone to reply and ignore someone that sounds mocking a newbie with his first post in the community. My query is a totally honest, if you think I'm joking or sounds like funny, you're absolutely wrong. I mean my every words in this thread.

Why re-invent the wheel? There is an "Education" section to CR4. You might be able to use that area for your purpose. If that does not exactly match your need/desire, contact a CR4 site administrator and see if they would be willing to develop what you want.

I am not reinventing the wheel, its impractical to do so. I am targeting different audience, audience from countries where technologies are not highly developed. It is much better if we from the same level of technology and purchasing capacity start to communicate. I do believe this make sense. I already established an audience and most of them are engineering students, very few are professional engineers. But these students will become professionals soon.

Contact CR4 developers? I am a developer myself, and my budget is too low for hiring developer from outside my territory, I simply cannot afford that. I look around CR4 and learned many things about this site. I will post here my link, if ever I made a success to this.

I agree that the application of engineering must be adapted to the resources available, and in many applications low cost and simplicity will succeed over the hi-tech "solutions". There have been numerous posts on this site from third world countries that have looked for and received low tech advice to solve issues such as water treatment, energy efficiency, ventilation, pumping, to name a few that I can recall.

Not every one who posts on this site is a professional engineer, and I do not think professional certification is a limiting factor to learning, asking for, and receiving help. An intense curiousity, a willingness to learn and the ability to try to help others is the main criteria for benefiting from this site.

Although some of what is on CR4 is beyond my ability to understand, I have a few areas that I can help others, I have learned from observing other people questions and posts, and I have had a few of my own posts answered. I have had some fun and laughs in the process, and (hopefully) provided some laughs with my weak attempt of humor. This is a fun and educational site over a wide range of technical interests, and I think your group of students and audience could learn by browsing their areas of interest, asking questions, and occasional providing input to various posts.

Just don't ask for answers to homework assignments. A student needs to work those out on their own. Asking for alternative explainations of concepts or theories is fair territory, but people on this site get VERY irrate when they detect a homework question on the site.

Thank you Ried for the reply. I can see that you're an intelligent man. I am going to become active to this site from now on, as I finished developing my website and I now have the time to participate in some discussion. My purpose here is to gain insights and to learn more so I can share it to my peers.

By the way, you can see my work at http://forums.mathalino.com
