Merged doublepost

Post by darkknight on June 24th 2011, 4:42 am

Hello. My name is darkknight as how you can see in my profile.

Well, I am going to talk shortly.
oK, this idea is one i've seen in few VBulletin forums(That i'm pretty sure that can be also scripted for our forums systems).

The idea: when an user is attempting to doublepost, the first message gets edited saying: merged doublepost (hour): Message.
This will avoid the doublepost count.

I am sorry if my english is kinda bad. I'm trying to improve and work on my english everyday! thumright !

Ok. Anyways i got a pic:


Anyways, sorry if it is in a bad resolution Sad.

True, but I just edit their post and merge them. It would help but with ------- everywhere it would look weird.

Listen. That image with that "-" is just an example i was showing... Here could be without that lines (-)

And this will be an option in forums. If this get accepted, in your admin panel, you could easily put as option "no"

Don't you dare start a war on this thread, if you have a problem with your co-members, then settle it on PM not here, or else you'll get a warning from me.

I'm going to vote No Smile

My reason is because for me it's not interesting or particularly useful. Some threads are automatically one-person posts (ex: rules or dedicated sections). Also, like in some tutorials, it's sometimes practical/necessary to separate your comments into several distinct posts

You can easily just put: ______

That lines to divide the 1 part of the tutorial to the 2d part.

But doesn't allow different linking ^^

Example :
Post 1 : links to part one (post2), part two (post 3), part three (post 4), etc...
Post 2 : part one
Post 3 : part two
Etc...

There would be an option before sending a topic like:

Topic Options:

-blabla: yes or no?

-Enable Merged Doublepost? Yes or no?

-Blabla: Yes or no.


And that thumright

As I said in another suggestion: the fact that's its an option isn't essential to a yes vote but part of the fine details of why it might be implemented. I vote on the option being used. Here it doesn't interest me, hence I vote no for the option

But listen. There would be an option in the admin panel saying: Enable Merged Doublepost? And you would just put "No". Maybe this wouldn't help you... but to other yes.

My logic is that if I voted "Yes if it's an option", then I'd vote Yes for pretty much everything. If everyone votes like that, then how the hell are the techies supposed to see anything out of the ocean of Yes.
Hence why I only vote Yes for something I truly think would help ForuMotion
