Add your blog

If you are a KDE Italia contributor you can have your blog on Planet KDE Italia. Blog content should be mostly KDE themed, Italian language and not liable to offend. If you have a general blog you may want to set up a tag and subscribe the feed for that tag only to Planet KDE Italia.

To have your blog added file a bug in Bugzilla listing your name, svn account (if you have one), IRC nick (if you have one), RSS or Atom feed and what you do in KDE. Attach a photo of your face for hackergotchi.

Alternatively, Planet KDE Italia is kept in KDE's SVN. If you have an account you can add or edit your own feed:

  • svn checkout svn+ssh://svn@svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/www/sites/planet/planetkde-it
  • Put your hackergotchi in website/hackergotchi/. A hackergotchi should be a photo of your face smaller than 80x80 pixels with a transparent background. svn add the file.
  • At the end of the planetkde-it/config file add your details (the name in brackets is your IRC nick):
  • feed 15m http://path.to/my/feed.rss define_name Konqi Konqueror (konqi) define_face hackergotchi/konqi.png define_facewidth 80 define_faceheight 80
  • svn commit

If you want to add a Twitter microblog to the Microblogging sidebar add define_microblog true and follow your name with [twitter]. Currently only Twitter is known to work, please contact Jonathan Riddell before adding non-Twitter microblogs to check it works.

Planet KDE Italia Guidelines

Planet KDE Italia is one of the public faces of the KDE project and is read by millions of users and potential contributors. The content aggregated at Planet KDE Italia is the opinions of its authors, but the sum of that content gives an impression of the project. Please keep in mind the following guidelines for your blog content and read the KDE Code of Conduct. The KDE project reserves the right to remove an inappropriate blog from the Planet. If that happens multiple times, the Community Working Group can be asked to consider what needs to happen to get your blog aggregated again.

If you are unsure or have queries about what is appropriate contact the KDE Community Working Group.

Blogs should be KDE themed

The majority of content in your blog should be about KDE and your work on KDE. Blog posts about personal subjects are also encouraged since Planet KDE Italia is a chance to learn more about the developers behind KDE. However blog feeds should not be entirely personal, if in doubt set up a tag for Planet KDE Italia and subscribe the feed from that tag so you can control what gets posted.

Posts should be constructive

Posts can be positive and promote KDE, they can be constructive and lay out issues which need to be addressed, but blog feeds should not contain useless, destructive and negative material. Constructive criticism is welcome and the occasional rant is understandable, but a feed where every post is critical and negative is unsuitable. This helps to keep KDE overall a happy project.

You must be a KDE contributor

Only have your blog on Planet KDE Italia if you actively contribute to KDE, for example through code, user support, documentation etc.

It must be a personal blog

Planet KDE Italia is a collection of blogs from KDE contributors. It is not indended for project news feeds.

Do not inflame

KDE covers a wide variety of people and cultures. Profanities, prejudice, lewd comments and content likely to offend are to be avoided. Do not make personal attacks or attacks against other projects on your blog.

For further guidance on good practice see the KDE Code of Conduct.
