Or maybe I should adopt gri's linking style?

app103,

What about adopting gri's style
of equal subscribing to winding topics..
                        about linking style ?

Thank you for the offer, but I am really only a member of DonationCoder's forum.

This is home. This is where I stay.

I also like to keep things easy to understand for everyone, explaining things out and making them as simple as possible, for the average person to understand.

Your style of linking, while it makes sense to me, doesn't make sense to the average person....so I can not do that.

Hi App,

For my benefit could you please explain how it makes sense?

Thank you,

Thank you,

In order to make this easier to understand, I'll have to explain a little something that may seem a bit unrelated at first, but in the end will make it easier for you to understand what the directions of the arrows mean:

The average chat client for online chat (IRC, etc) has a userlist located on the right side-->

I am a regular in a few Italian chatrooms. It is a custom of Italians to say they are away by just simply typing "<<"...which is the opposite direction of the userlist, meaning they are not really here.

When they come back they type ">>" which points at the userlist, meaning they are here.

To illustrate and for you to see this in action, I have screen captured a bit from an italian chatroom that I am a regular in:

SNAG-0170.png

In this screenshot, the 3 guys have said their goodnights and are gone..2 having left the room, but one has not, but he has gone to bed, so he's not here, even though his name remains on the userlist.

<< = not here
>> = here

When gri uses "<<" he means to go to the link and talk about it there (not here)

When gri uses ">>" he means to go to the link and talk about it here.

>winding< means related topics to current discussion...they could be anywhere...and you can reply at either/or. But to keep up with what is going on in the full conversation, you'd have to subscribe to be notified when there is a post at both, otherwise you could lose half the conversation. Note that the arrows in it point to both 'here' and 'not here'.

It's sort of like when 2 threads are started on a forum with a related discussion and you end up quoting yourself from one thread to the other and you have to keep reading both to stay up to date with the conversation. If it was simply stated at some point that they are related, then a forum mod could merge them. But if the discussions occur on 2 different forums, you can't merge them.

Understanding Italian chat code made it very easy for me to understand gri's code. There are those that thought it was backwards, but it's not.

Now that you have explained this it makes more sense.  Thanks.

         was it very hard to provide the initial conditions
         for not having further gri's posts
                        at DonationCoder ?

And discuss the errors with mouser.

Maybe it would be better to not try this style out here?  Maybe the best thing would be to learn how things need to be done here (like they have been)?  I'm not that particular myself, but there are many here that really would like to see "outsiders" take their ideas elsewhere.

Greetings.

Quote from: [url=http://gri.sunshinehost.net/index.php?topic=113.msg177#msg177][size=2][u]Mobysaurus in ~Voice of Truth~[/u][/size][/url]

I, for one, honestly and sincerely appreciate your very wise decision
to stop posting on DonationCoder.com and offer me the peace of mind.

Mobysaurus,

I am doing my best
     for not posting to hundreds of distributed forums.

To prove it -
set the default Quick Reply window to "show by default"
(   SMF 1.1 User Settings
<< http://gri.sunshineh...t/index.php?topic=16 ),

click the Quote button of this my post..

and copy the displayed code
             with nested quoting

   to your beloved forum topic
   Global Quoting mod
<< http://www.donationc...62.msg47883#msg47883 .

Reply at DonationCoder winding topic -
         was it very hard to provide the initial conditions
         for not having further gri's posts
                        at DonationCoder ?

Can anybody.. except me..
fulfil exactly this my request
               in my quote above ?

Mobysaurus,
you have a chance on the second attempt..
