How about the quick reply mod on qbasic.tk? I find that really useful. What do you guys think? Can we get it installed?

Cheers

I rarely use the normal one anymore, except when I need the special functions. It's also really nice that you can see the other posts like they are when replying. It takes like 5 mins to install, but there are a couple different versions. Check www.phpbbhacks.com

i asked oracle about this in a pm a few weeks back.
this is what he said-

Quote from: "oracle"
No.

For reasons you'll find out soon enough...


or something like that.
anyways i could probably find a use for this as well. but the answer is no. unless he changed his mind.

The answer is still No.

But for different reasons: Quick Reply encourages stupid posts for one. At least with posting on a seperate screen you have to load it first.

I strongly disagree with installing this mod, unless the amount of rubbish one-liners around here decreases. And I think the majority of members here would agree with that sentiment.

Because spammers don't have patience?

Who said spammers? I said "stupid posts" and "rubbish one-liners". If that's what you mean by spammers, then I'd say that giving them an easier way to add rubbish to the db is not a good idea.

I tend to agree... You have to think about what you want to say, and maybe if you really want to say it...  this isn't so if you don't have to "work" at it, as little as that work may be.

If you say the site is already filled with one liners and non topic posts, then your current method to deter them isn't working.  I can agree that it makes posting easier than before, but if people want to post a one liner, they're obviously willing to do it this way.  

Then again, I really don't care.  Just was playing devil's advocate I guess.

It's not that one liners are posted, it's that more would be posted with the addition of this mod. If I could get some guarantee that more one-liners would not be posted this mod would be OK, but I can't Sad

how about something that logs how many hours a member spend on qbasic news. and after a period of inactivity, automatically logs you out to prevent inaccurate measurements. :wink:

You, mean, exactly like it is now, just that it's 5 minutes.

And what does that have to do with a Quickreply box?

Well your "online status" is 5 minutes, but you're kept logged in for an hour in terms of last read posts.

But that isn't going to help at all...
