in thread Remove nodes?

Being able to remove nodes which have no replies would be sufficient for me. The problem I see this as addressing is where a node has been accidentally created as empty - I would hope people are less likely to reply to empty nodes.

I suppose you could permit removal of nodes with replies if you had some policy. For example:

  • Re-parent all replies to a deleted node to the parent of the deleted node. (Not much worse than people being allowed to edit out the text of a node as far as making the threading confusing).
  • If a node is deleted which has replies, change the maintainer to Daemon/Zombie/Admin and set the text to empty
Any good?

[Corion]: Grrr. I thought I had started work on Filter::Simple in a feature branch but it seems that I haven committed to the master branch instead :-(
[choroba]: just cherry pick the commits to a feature branch and reset/revert the master
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - as this is not an official repository, I don't mind about ruining other peoples clones of that ;)
[choroba]: oh, if you already pushed, you should revert
[Corion]: choroba: Naah, I don't mind rewriting history, at least when it is in my favour ;)
[Corion]: Ruining other peoples clones is not nice, but as I only have that repo to (later) show people when I encounter problems, I don't mind that
[Corion]: I should look into self-hosting gitprep instead of relying so much on github
