  • The discussion system has always allowed users to make their own discussions, the only thing was that it was a bit of an accidental hack that was exploited then anything else (bug becomes feature) and evolved that way.
    Now its been made a bit easier.
    Somewhere in the back of my head is a new page for displaying the user created discussions. I had not thought yet of using some sort of ranking system for it, but that is not a bad idea....
    I will add something to the code for users who want to make more use of this. Watch Slashcode's navigation menu for more changes :)

      ok, so i noticed the discussion creation form in the discussions section. i was able to successfully (or so it appeared) create a discussion, but when i tried to post to it, i got all kinds of errors (something about an invalid formkey...the page expired so i can't get it back). i assume this means you're still working on it? :)

        Where did you do this? On slashcode.com?

        User created discussions have been supported since 2.2.

          • That's not the right way to create a discussion... You should have been given a Sid at the time, that looks like what you named the sid. Not the same thing.

            • Exchaning sid for title will work at some point BTW. Its in my list. It will probably work something like:

              1) You get the exact match

              2) You get a list of close matches

              • Cool! Will there be something that checks for name collisions? I was able to create two discussions with the same name on geekizoid (there are two trolltalk sids).

            • er, yeah...the sid was 1119. i thought i remembered trying to submit a comment using the sid instead of the name and it not working. </end-user whine> but i just tried it a second ago and it worked, so i must have screwed up the first time...

              woops :)
