Okay, I've just spent ages redesigning how the forum sections work so that I could make it look different here. The feedback section now shows a green dot for accepted or completed bugs/requests. And a red dot for anything that has been rejected because it's impossible or for some other reason.

what about a yellow one for "not possible at the moment"
"At first, this completely shocked me. Then I found a neat picture of a bunny and posted it at the top of the article. Hello there, bunny!"

i was thinking about that too. yellow would be a good idea.

and a grey one for no decision yet?

You don't know how much extra code it took to add in just two different colours! Because there's no way to do nested if-else statements in wikidot syntax like there is in modern programming languages, I had to repeat the same code over and over again (and edit it slightly each time) to take into account every possibility.
Adding more colours will make it even worse XD
Maybe I can add one more colour… but I don't want to do that until I know I've got time for it…
Basically, if I tag something as rejected but it's left unlocked, you can still post a reply there to ask if it's going to be implemented any time soon… and then I will change it so that it's not rejected any more if a new Wikidot feature makes it possible to do.

im not sure how it would work but ok

Basically there's a couple of status' a thread can have:
And then I've got to try to remember to do all of those possibilities :)
yes sticky, not locked, not done, not rejected
yes sticky, not locked, yes done, not rejected
yes sticky, not locked, not done, yes rejected
yes sticky, yes locked, yes done, not rejected
yes sticky, yes locked, not done, yes rejected
not sticky, not locked, not done, not rejected
not sticky, not locked, yes done, not rejected
not sticky, not locked, not done, yes rejected
not sticky, yes locked, yes done, not rejected
not sticky, yes locked, not done, yes rejected
Very repetitive, with only small changes for each - main problem I had was trying to make sure I changed everything that needed to be changed, otherwise threads might disappear completely, or appear more than once on the same page.

i can already imagine how much coding there will be.

Sticky and locked is easy,
yes sticky, not locked
yes sticky, yes locked
not sticky, not locked
not sticky, yes locked
^^ That's how the other sections of the forum are set up. It's a lot of code but it's easy enough to understand. The only reason the feedback one is so complicated is because of the extra variables to take into account.
If Wikidot's "iftags" feature worked inside modules, things would be much simpler — but it doesn't.

Reminiscent of binary code, essentially:
I know in this instance, not all combinations are actually used, but as you can see, with only four digits, a lot is still possible. Add another digit and the possibilities increase even more.
28 May 2010 19:45
wow that makes it really complicated
29 May 2010 04:01
Yes, good example Proto.
I don't mind counting up (or down) in binary… that's easy. It was converting decimal -> binary that I never remember how to do.
29 May 2010 13:04
Well, converting from binary to decimal is easier than the reverse, but in itself it's not too hard. Just remember to start from the right and that as each digit progresses left, the value of that place is worth double.

these patterns are just like math homework we probably all did in year 6 and up. :D
