Re: Merit

But the question was, how might some people having "merit" and others not having it, have helped? I don't know about the cases Forboding Angel refers to, I was not involved in most of those situations. But I was very directly involved in the ZK split. It was me that did things that "resolved" that ...

Re: Merit

What happens is that admin/root access defaults into some sort of lead role, which is "ok".. until things aren't ok. And then it's good to have some sort of agreed upon process to resolve the crisis. One the other hand, this I completely agree with. But I don't know how to do it in a way that suits...

Re: Let's learn from Wesnoth and think about the future of spring

I played AoE2 yesterday.. multiplayer lan, single faction against single ai. My sister likes to build the town, run the economy and do the research. And I do the scouting, build the walls & defence and do the fighting. We do this from time to time. We had fun. It's my personal goal to have that expe...

Re: Merit

About the new code I wrote. I added a second PhpBB extension, 'Merit for Auto Groups'. This extension makes a third extension 'Auto Groups' aware of the merit status as defined by the initial 'Merit' extension. The 'Auto Groups' extension is an official extension developed and supported by the PhpBB...

Re: Merit

I had some 1 on 1 discussions the past weeks and I wrote some more code.. I'm going to reply to the earlier feedback and then discuss the new code in a separate reply. As far as I know, no one here was elected and everyone was either appointed by others or by themselves. If someone is the only one l...

Re: Merit

Ehh, maybe 'basement dweller' would be a more factual characterization. :-) Anyway, I suspect that we are nearing the end of the productive discussion. I will have to find some time to code the feedback from this topic. There are one or two changes I want to make. And then then there’s the question ...

Re: Can we break the forum out of the site design?

I like it.

Are you planning on replacing the header on the other pages or are we going to have a mix of old and new style headers for now?

Re: Merit

Pretty much ever karma system I have been in I end up with something like 40/-35 etc. People who are more charismatic and less actually doing things tend to have higher scores because they never challenge any one. Well, it's not a "open" karma system, it should be a judgement from peers. Would be i...

Re: Merit

If the system gets obsolete after a few years, then we can just reconsider its purpose. It's true, systems like these can become dysfunctional. Debian has its 'DD' status ( Debian Developer ) that's a complex beast to split the users from the developers. At some point hundreds of people were waitin...

Re: Merit

Merit almost by definition cannot be domain-agnostic. "Merit" implemented as a technical system should not be domain-agnostic. I don't follow you here, "merit" is a very broad term and not domain-specific, so merit is domain-agnostic? My implementation is domain-specific but we can change the imple...

Re: Merit

when problems like those happen the parties involved are likely to have merited members. What would we do then? The merit status won't solve problems directly but let me explain my train of thought here. Having merit status means you meet the requirements we set as a community. If we make signing a...

Re: Changes to forum layout / startpage

The way buttons and crap like that look doesn't fucking matter. Why? Because any idiot with access to css docs and 30 seconds of spare time on their hands can change them to look like whatever they want! Without what I have done, that would be much more difficult. I want this forum to have a unifie...

Re: Merit

This seems like a simplified karma/reputation system, which gets inflated and obsolete fast. Maybe we can limit the amount of merit recommendations someone can give? Like 5? Or one a year? Also what is this meant to solve? I'm going to point to the first answer in my previous post. Is it supposed t...

Re: Merit

Thanks good points. I think the main issue here is the concept of what is meant by merit and what its purpose is, isn't very clear, and will be ignored for the most part by new users, and users who didn't find the merit panel Possible purposes are: - Access to the Dedicated Developer Discussion sub-...

Took me a few months.. (life, it happens) but I have an initial working extension to show what I have in mind. Committed it to: https://github.com/Tim-Blokdijk/spring-website/tree/master/wwwroot/phpbb/ext/spring/merit We definitely should not take this version into production, the code works but I w...

Re: Changes to forum layout / startpage

I suggested to just keep using Licho's donation system.. works fine.

Have tempers subsided enough for that? Or is that still "to complicated"?

I am not sure if I will continue doing stuff or leave this community entirely. I tried taking a 2 month break but when I came back, it was back to the same drama from the same crap. Then it got handled, now it is starting again just from a different angle. Honestly I don't know what to do. You had ...
