Unfortunately, that choice wasn't in the drop-down menu this morning when I was late for a meeting at my day job.

But your interim approach would be to extend the approval system or invent a new approval system so it could apply to replies, not just root nodes? And update all thread display code to hide unapproved replies? And add approval status notifications and approve-this form elements to the display of all replies?

Heck, that's a lot more work than the longer-term features I've been planning to add.

Of course, part of the reason for that is that the approval system and the thread display is some of the least-well-factored and ugliest code on the site. ):

(Node title not updated until after posting just to double-check that the posting bug is indeed fixed.)

    When you put it that way, I guess not.

    S'the trouble with invisible code-bases, observers can only guess as to what might be easy to implement.

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      Youíre lucky it is invisible. A good glance at the modified Everything engine can cost you a visit to the ophthalmologist. I keed, I keed! But really, itís not fun to look at.

      I regret nnnnnnoooooooot as much as one might expect.

        Maybe its time we re-write the site. In aXML?

        (Geez! Some people just have no sense of humour!)

        I certainly would be interested in getting my hands on the PM code. Mostly for personal reasons: I'm wondering how much work it would actually be to convert all the PM data into a modern database layout with completly new, modernized codebase.

        For the last couple of months i have been thinking about that problem. Seems like a lot of work. But what i really want to know: Is it actually possible? Would i be able to do it? I bet i can, but i have to prove it (to myself, mostly).

        You now, "never set your goals to low" and that stuff ;-)

        Don't use '#ff0000':
        use Acme::AutoColor; my $redcolor = RED();
        All colors subject to change without notice.
