Change Negative Settings to Positive

Post by Guest on December 14th 2008, 1:14 pm

My suggestion is to have the words "Disallow" (a negative word) to be replaced with "Allow". This makes it easier to understand exactly what the setting is.

For example, under "General > Security" in the admin panel is says "Disallow moderators to ban members:", with options 'Yes' and 'No'. OK. So does setting it to 'Yes' mean "Yes, I want allow my moderators to ban members", and 'No' means "No, I do want to allow moderators to ban"?

See what I mean? If If were to say "Allow moderators to ban members:", we could simply say "Yes, allow them to to" or "No, don't allow them to".

I say no. People should read and think about what they do!
Changing this just makes it too easy. Their are pretty cool things in languages and this is one of that.

And, "Disallow Moderators to ban Users" -"Yes" means just , yes, they're disallowed to ban users. Isn'T that hard at all.

I voted no. Its clearly understandable to me. I imagine this Yes and No as 1 and 0 ( in computer world ).

So : Disallow moderators to ban members : Yes

Means to me : Moderators are disallowed to ban members, this option is confirmed and enabled.

Like Kilsek said, it'll be any easy change to make. It'll save a lot of confusion.

Since, it won't take much of an effort. This can be implemented.
