[RFC] Coding guidelines - Comma on left

Regarding comma left or right as mentioned here Comma on the left allows one to comment out a line of code without rewriting it. In general this is not the case since you can not comment out the first line. The JavaScript notation supports spare comma on the left as much as it supports spare comma o...

Re: Ignore posts of all users on foe list

I would submit that it's the way the feature should work. :) If I were designing it, that's how I would try to implement the feature. As I said earlier, there is a difference between a moderator acting as a moderator, which should never be hidden or ignored, and a moderator posting as himself or her...

Re: Ignore posts of all users on foe list

As a minor clarification, I'm not talking about editing a post from someone else, but a post entered by the moderator. Understood before Ah, ok. My confusion is that there wouldn't be a checkbox to check on a post a moderator is editing, only on a new post, which would not have the edit reason that...

Re: Ignore posts of all users on foe list

As a minor clarification, I'm not talking about editing a post from someone else, but a post entered by the moderator. A moderator posting as a user of the board would leave the box unchecked. A moderator posting something in his or her role as a moderator would mark the post so that it will not be ...

Re: [RFC] Post Revisions

Code is written in lines. Posts aren't lines but rather are paragraphs. If you go with line diff, you're basically doing a paragraph diff. For example, this entire series of sentences is only one line so if I edit only one word in the entire paragraph, then the line-diff process will show the entire...

Re: Ignore posts of all users on foe list

I have a different opinion. :) It's one additional check box to consider during posting, just like the "Disable BBCode" and so on, and at that it's only going to show up for moderators. On the display side (foe consideration) it's one additional field to consider. Is the user on the foe list and is_...

Re: [RFC] Post Revisions

How about word-based for everything but changes at the end of a word then? :P Your example is an interesting extreme. For the most part, I would expect character based diff to better show spelling error corrections (pottery versus posterity), where a word-based diff will show how the thought process...

Re: Ignore posts of all users on foe list

What would be nice is if a moderator could flag posts as "this is a moderator post" versus "this is me as a user post" which would solve the problem. For example, I should have to see any posts by user XX who is a board moderator if they are actively moderating, such as "please don't cross post blah...

Re: [RFC] Post Revisions

Random scattered thoughts... I would prefer a character diff rather than word, for reasons already listed (post versus posting example given). I don't see a problem with storing revisions as text and calculating the differences between subsequent post versions (as stated, a post with no edits has ze...
