Good point. There also could be a score system on how helpful the individual is, and things like being flagged, and such.

About starting a new thread for the forum core, I think this is it: I just got a little off topic.

This thread is about the development process and standards. There should a separate one to decide on what features to include in the forum

One subject we have to consider, is the old "CPU or Disc Space?"

The way we code the forum can have an effect on both. For example, do we want to store the parsed version of a post in a separate column in the DB, or parse every single one during runtime? The first option would obviously save server power, while the other would clearly require much less space.

The decided solution will certainly depend on the specific application.

I think it depends how much parsing is done on the posts, and how many posts are displayed at any one time etc...

On my forum I parse every post on-display, and it loads in like...no time. 0.03 seconds or something. That's nothing.

It does add up. I'm not saying either way, just that we should take that into consideration while coding. Of course, you already knew that. :mrgreen:

This is basically a discussion on a form of caching, something which belongs in the feature list.

I'm getting sad. Is this not going to happen? Is there not enough enthusiasm? Did I miss something?

:(

It sounds interesting. I wouldn't mind contributing - I did some work customizing Ikonboard back in the day so I have a bit of forum experience. Granted, it was in Perl but the concepts are generally the same.

Could a moderator, or at least someone who has a bit more time than me start a Sourceforge project pretty soon? This is losing interest because there's nothing happening.

Lets get the ball rolling! We have plenty of developers here (including myself) who could work on this on the side.

Another great advantage to this, is that when there's a problem, or we want a new feature, it's not up to the mods. All the developers can pitch in.
