A (better?) suggestion
    #825279 - 08/18/02 11:05 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I have a suggestion how we could easily differentiate the topics in a forum, without splitting it into 5, 10 or 50 new forums.

For instance to "solve" the Hardware forum suggestion:
If someone posts something that has to do with hardware in the Mushroom Cultivation forum, then he should include the word *HARDWARE* in the thread title.

Or if someone posts a cooking thread in the Creative arts forum, then he should include the word *FOOD* in the title of the thread.

Then very easily a script can be written, that filters out all those threads containing the trigger word for a particualar topic group.

As an example see here:
This script filters all the logs in the Grow log forum, that have the word *COMPLETED* in their title.
www.shroomery.org/logs


What do you think?



PS: if anybody disagrees he won?t be banned

Hehehe...

My true opinion is that, aside from a possible Cooking Forum, I don't really think we need any new forums. Most of the forums can already be searched pretty effectively, especially on technical issues. Also, how many different spellings of "*h4rdwere#" do you think this motley group can generate?

If you want to modify the board script -- and I can understand why you may not want to, as all mods need to be tracked, and re-written on updates -- I would alter the Search page so that it can generate a SQL query that could search for keywords and usernames.

That?s not what I proposed...

Mods and admins could change the title...

Also the search script could accept the different ways to spell it...

True, and I don't wish to be accused of standing in the way of progress, but isn't his going to clog up the visual look of things with all these *cooking*, *hardware*, *postwhoring* labels in the title? Could these be buried in the text instead of the title, since they are for search purposes?

I don't know? I just have a nagging uneasiness about this idea. Something indefinable, which I can't quite put my finger on. Hmm...

I guess I don?t have any great reasons why it shouldn?t be done, but then I don?t have any great reasons why it should be done either. If you know what I mean?

True.

Of course! Very good suggestion!

How do you mean even more user unfriendly ? is it user unfriendly? Please elaborate.


>Plus we'll get endless threads of people trying to teach the newbs.
What?s wrong with that?

Hopefully you pay a bit more attention to your business than to my posts. When was the last time you saw me try to teach a newbie where to post?

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I think the word in the subject line is the way to go. This was a search isn't as needed as a user can just skim down the list of posts and find an interest.

I think the problem is, that any modifications to the board, will require careful tracking, and then have to be re-inserted into subsequent upgrades. Also, any modification that requires the creation of additional database fields will complicate upgrades immensely, for export/import, and require significant extra scripting...
