in reply to Shut down the Snippets Section

  • Code nodes are relatively complex, extending the "generic" node type with fields for category, description, and (now deprecated) contact info. The critical aspect here is the ability to categorize code posts, as can be seen at the top of Code Catacombs.

[OT] Those categorized links would vastly enhance the usability of that part of the monastry, if they weren't just a manifest of ancient history, as they are now, showing only posts from the dawn of the monastry (year 2000 …)

Example: 679773 is the newest node shown on Code Catacombs. It is categorized as "Miscellaneous". But when you go to Miscellaneous, the newest post shown there is from September 2002.

Similar for the other category links.

    Thanks, pKai; very good point. We should fix that before we start encouraging people to use the Code Catacombs section.
