Subject: MATLAB Apps? WTF!?

Hello everyone,
I went to check the FEX and found a weird new design. Is there any features that I need to be aware of? Something like listing my submissions or categorizing them or something? Also, when did this happen? I'm guessing less than a month ago since it looks like the downloads counter has reset.

Yes, a month ago. See
http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/newsreader/view_thread/306922#833346

Click on your name to see your files. Or do a search with
"author:yourname" to see your files. You can click on "View All" set
a bookmark to see all of your files, like this:
http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/?term=authorid%3A31862
You'll get a list of all of your uploads plus their thumbnail
screenshots. Otherwise you'll only see 5 of them (without any of your
nice screenshots) plus a bunch of other stuff like comments, ratings,
tags applied, and a bunch of other stuff you don't care about.

Thanks. People aren't finding my files for some reason, rank dropped 50 places even after submitting two new files. Need to make a new "app" lol.

I don't want to start some sort of flame war, but please note that the majority of posters to this newsgroup keep messages professional. I certainly know the full complement of scatological words (and have used all of them from time to time!). Nevertheless, having come of age when language in public tended to be a bit more polite, I would appreciate a minimal use of even euphemistic abbreviations for these terms, especially since it really didn't contribute any real understanding to the question you were asking and makes me less inclined to respond with an answer. Maybe I'm the only person reading the Matlab Newsgroup who cares about this. If so, I expect I'll hear one way or the other.

Not to be pedantic, but not all profanity is scatological:

Yes, you are correct, and I was aware of that. In any case, your response is merely one more indication of the usual intellectual level of the discussions in this newsgroup.

I'm sorry I hurt your feelings, but I try to be consistent and act the same on the newsgroup as I do on other forums/facebook/blog/real life/etc. I don't like playing dress-up and refraining from using words I normally say because they're deemed unprofessional. This of course is after taking into account not going over any offensive boundaries.

With that said, if said boundaries aren't stepped over, it would be better for the newsgroup if everyone acted as who they were, both the classy talking ones and the abbreviation talking ones. Perhaps it'd be more professional for everyone to talk in the same "smart" way, but it sure would be boring, and sometimes the place can be a little fun actually.

Now I don't mean to pull a Caulfield here, but is my choice of words really that big of a deal? It's a good thing I rarely post topics here then, and reading your post left a sour taste in my mouth that just turns me away from this place anyway/

You cannot act on forums etc. as if they were real life because in a face to face communication there is additional information about the messages you are trying to confer through body language and tone of voice etc. It is easier to misconstrue humour when it is just text.

Furthermore, in a face to face engagement there is always the possibility of punching someone in the face if they offend you sufficiently. This recourse, which moderates behaviour to some degree in day-to-day life is not available here. :-) (winking smiley face to indicate previous sentence was intended as tongue-in-cheek humour, in case this is misconstrued).
