Re: Do you use the Friend/Foe Feature?

I do. There's a couple of people who post consistenly useless, mean spirited or just agravating posts - the "Foe" option is great to automagically ignore all their posts! That said, I usually then click and read the ignored post - but it is great at reminding me to not react to the comments.

Re: phpBB's Cron Jobs

I'm not a dev, but maybe I can answer a couple of the questions... 1. The first comment says: // Run cron-like action // Real cron-based layer will be introduced in 3.2 Is this is a hint at a plan for a much later realease of "3.2"? Looks like it... although, don't be scared by 3.2 - It's not *that*...

Works for me
Works for me too now... I guess this is a salutary tale about testing things on a beta board - it might change over the weekend!

Re: PageBreaker: A fundamental flaw with the templates!

I don't see any fix on your page. It stretches page as it is supposed to (using Opera 8). Maybe you "fixed" it for IE, but not for all browsers. And you should fix text align on your forum because all text is centered. Thanks for pointing this out, its now fixed for FireFox and Opera :mrgreen: Let ...

Re: New Karma System (Theory)

Ok Imagine, that you are doing a search for “Fluffy Bunnies” By default the current search engine look just at the most recent posts containing “Fluffy Bunnies”. If there is an older historical thread, and it has a high weigh value, then that thread would be moved near the top “Fluffy Bunnies” beca...

Again, the more Weight, the more relevant the thread would be.
This is the one I don't quite get - the more relevant to *what*?

Re: Great Mistake

As far as internationalisation goes... the one that always intrigues me is systems where the selection of language is also translated. eg. http://www.google.co.uk/language_tools?hl=en" target="_blank - Here you can preview Google in any of 115 different languages - don't worry, it doesn't stay that ...

Re: New Karma System (Theory)

I don't know enough about MySQL performance to comment too much, but it could quickly grow out of control - anyone know better (say a 3 column table, with User1, User2 and Average Karma)? I believe the max value for a record table and SQL is 4 billion (2^32) currently, so this could be a huge probl...

Re: New Karma System (Theory)

*Expletive Deleted* I just typed a really clever, complicated method that solves some of the issues... then accidently hit the "Back" button on my keyboard (cunning located next to the up arrow) and lost the whole thing... Darn. Hopefully, I'll get it right again this time... If there is a history ...
