Moving messages to another thread
« on: June 24, 2012, 03:33:38 PM »
A question for the managers of the forum. I would prefer to move two messages from a thread to another thread. Is that operation laborious? Does it take much time?
However the matter is not important.

The forum is Living Room. I'd like to move my joke http://www.donationc....msg290716#msg290716 and the replay of Renegade http://www.donationc....msg290717#msg290717 from the thread "silly humor..." to the thread "Cute jokes' thread".

The grivitiniks in the quote header will be destroyed
without ~Freedom of Moving Thoughts~ mod installed.

Giampy,
was my reply inappropriate because of your initial restriction:

Giampy,

Gri, I would be glad to answer to you, but with regard to your first replay I must admit that I have understood nothing about it...  :-[ The word "grivitiniks" and the global sense of the replay are obscured for me...  :-[

Gri, I would be glad to answer to you,

Do you have your own forum ?

ps.
The donationcoder forum is inappropriate for placing of the posts
because of the several reasons.

One of them is a combination of two circumstances -
the forum software version 1.X being kept by forum administrator
under the refuse of the forum administrator
to install the grivitational mods.

In result, the link of the message in default format
leads to inoperability of the link
after moving of the linked message
from the original topic to another topic.

Version 2.X allows the operability of the short format of the links
by default, which is indifferent to moving of the posts between topics.

The probability of the forum version upgrade
is much higher than of the event of grivitational mods installation.

That's why i am forced to choose the short format of the links
in the headers of the quotes in my posts.
They will become operable automatically after the version upgrade
or after the installation of grivitational mods on 1.X,

but now they are inoperable,
thus producing inconveniences in moving along the vectors
of logical relations between the posts (grivitoniks)
and the members' ~huhs~.

The incoming edge of the mentioned logical vector,
incoming into the post with a quote, -
i named grivitinik.

While there may also exist the outgoing grivitoniks -
grivitoutiks.
When the suggested direction of moving
is from the distributed posts with a quote -
to the original post walking in the Space of Grivitational Universe.

Do a search on gri or grivitiniks on Google (or look at Gri's other posts here)... I wouldnt worry too much about understanding.

It might be that "GRI" is short for "Generated Random Information".

Anyone care to translate?  :wallbash:

What Gri is pointing out is that in SMF 1.x (which DC has installed), individual messages are referenced by their thread ID + message ID, in the format "index.php?topic=31419.msg292188#msg292188", making it harder for posts to be moved without breaking the links in the quotes, since quotes use this format and thus links are broken when the message is moved to a different thread.
Apparently, when installing his mod or when upgrading SMF 2.x, the posts can be referenced by themselves and thus the links will keep working when posts are moved between different threads. That's why he quotes people using links in the format "index.php?msg=293179".
Also, according to Gri, this single fact makes DC "inappropriate for placing of the posts".

[edit] also, in case you haven't noticed yet (or you weren't here when he started posting on DC), he loves the attention :P [/edit]

I did, and they are all posts from him saying the same thing, in some insane, none English fashion  :huh:

I'm lost, and will probably never be found on this one, so I shall leave this to people who know how to translate this lol

From what I understand, if you move the post that is being quoted, the link should be broken (I'm not sure, though).

Should be broken ? Why ?
It should not. But it _is_ being broken, unfortunately.

To check whether the link will be broken
it is enough to substitute the original topic identificator in the link
to another one, any.

In the sample link
http://www.donationc....msg290716#msg290716

replace "16974" with, say, ~7104~.

Then on donationcoder.com forum
the changed link will lead to the topic 7104 where the original post is absent.

On grivitational forum such changed link
would still lead to msg=290716
regardless of topic id in the link.

It is because Move Topic does not change the topic id in message link.

Split and Merge topics - do change topic id
and do break grivitoniks, if they were used.

You want even more humor?  Click on his post count under his name.  See all of the posts on DC by them.  This can't be random information generator the whole time, can it?  I mean... this is on purpose?

To accelerate the Evolution of primates -
place the code of your replies
on the remote forums of the distributed discussions,
but with the quote headers in global format,
for example:

Quote from: gri
along with the global quoting feature.

Then you will sooner discover the purpose -
Human discussions are possible
on grivitational forums only.

Thank you for your concern :) (and for calling us "primates", that's really nice of you).

Given the fact that no one here seems to be interested in evolving from your definition of "primate" to your definition of "human", I would now ask the members of the forum to consider this matter closed.
Thanks you for your participation.

Then how will the primates learn
~the better way to handle Gri's posts~ -

by Safe Moving of the posts to other separated topics,
including gritoadmixes,
with the topic identificators
differing from the identificators of the original topics
borning the eccentric Messages of the Mind ?
Not of Human Mind only.

In general, the Logical Integrity of a Human posts
                is dependent on monkeys' Stupidity.

And then - where will i be getting the Attention of the primates
which i am fully dependent on ?

he loves the attention

That's it.
