Re: MOD Installation

IMHO, using the MODx format is the wrong direction. true, we have tons of existing MODs, but i still feel that this will not be good. MODx is propriatary (and ugly) format, that is meant to be used by humans, and is not friendly. it is ridiculously difficult to create, and not at all friendly to app...

Re: [RFC] Ability to delete auto login keys

It definately is a lot simpler from an end users perspective. On the other hand what Andreas suggested gives you a lot more power, not sure what the best choice in this case would be. It might be useful to be able to see what autologin cookies are still in the system. in my book when you can achiev...

Re: Multi Quote (or even Multi Moderation)

Off-topic note: wish they had a reputation built in here and phpbb.com you might want to dig here for very long and detailed discussion about "the karma system". (you'll have to go back to around 2005 or so....) hundreds (maybe thousands) of posts, with very interesting discussions. after reading s...

Re: Add User ACP

This already exists in the STK, whilst imo it serves more purpose in a standard installation. Uses may be with difficulties registering and the forum adminsitrator has been emailed/contacted (i believe an email link appears aswell) - So thats the only usage. Manually adding users would usually done...

Re: Multi Quote (or even Multi Moderation)

general comment: what you want is not necessarily a specific mod. what you want is specific functionality. maybe it would be more productive to describe and discuss (it may get refined through the discussion) the precise functionality you want, rather than discuss mods that implement it. you have to...

Re: Add User ACP

=== explain the use case *as i see it* ==== i do not think "add user" is a good clarification of the real need. sometimes, we need to execute batch operations on large amounts of external data. an example would be the case where you have a large list (say, CSV file of people. let's pretend it came f...

Re: [RFC] Ability to delete auto login keys

counter proposal: instead of listing all the machines someone logged in from (might not even be useful in case someone lives behind a NAT router, such as on a campus), wouldn't it be simpler and more effective to just provide an interface to remove (or replace) the current key? supposedly (as far as...

Re: [RFC] Optimized Page Titles patch

or you can just "git clone" to your local machine, and use "git format-patch" > somefile and post the patch. a bit less beaurocracy than forking for a single patch. if you intend to do mode development, it does make sense to fork - i just wanted to note that it's not the *only* option. naturally, th...

Re: [RFC] Soft Delete

There is a performance difference when you move from a boolean to a bitwise field if you have separate permissions for viewing both options. no there isn't. both are stored as "int". the database does not have any facility to store any field smaller than one byte, and in most database systems, ther...

no, actually, "coming to think of it" performance effect is exactly 0.
