    It's a fact, for most of youngers. Not everyone is, it's just many are (subjective).
    I didn't directly say you're subjective though.

    But Nest won't do it, leave him alone :) as long as there are too few of the mods, he won't

    We already discussed that

    There is no need to go in circles.

    edit
    Precisely

    edit
    The current administration is unwilling to adopt the philosophy of many moderators, so this debate is rather pointless. They prefer as few moderators as possible, and that is unlikely to change.

    Yeah but algorithms such as those rarely (never?) occur in spells, and if they did, they'd only be part of a library that is required by the spell. They're bound to appear in JASS resources, though.

    systems are submitted to the spells section as well.


    Also, if those algorithms do occur, the moderator should be able to recognize it and possibly suggest a better one.


    Furthermore, the rarity of such algorithms proves that there should be tiered moderators. THW doesn't need an army of highly advanced moderators or lots of moderators at the same level. It needs lot of basic moderators and decreasing numbers of moderators as the skill level goes up (think of it as logarithmic).

    Sadly i couldn't make my self shutup.. but that is completely correct. -.-'
    Instead of having a few moderators a bunch would be good, since right now no one is active to control the map section ( -Kobas- went holyday ) and i have not heard about the current map mod's being active. So i recommend some map mods, and i think ralle is thinking about it

    Sadly, I feel like even if the site would attempt to follow Nestharus' "shitload of semi-competent and literate moderators" idea, I don't think there would be enough to moderate the spell section. The Jass section is a totally different matter. It seems to just be a couple of people chatting, and its moderation is fairly unimportant since no one uses it anyway, other than said couple of people. This section should definitely be reserved for users competent in computer science, not just people who know how to clean memory leaks, but otherwise yeah moderation of the spell section absolutely doesn't require that kind of knowledge.

    The more competent you get, the less you care about sifting through heaps of trivial shit in the spell section.

    Also, Nestharus, I blame the fact that no one understands your scripts on your naming convention. :<

    I actually coded properly when using cJASS : P. I'd use definitions for readable code.

    See here-
    Code (vJASS):

        globals
            private timer array st
            private integer ic=0
            private integer array sn
            private integer array sp
            private boolean array sr
            private integer array sf
            private integer array tn
            private integer array tp
            private integer array tf
            private integer array nh
            private real array nt
            private integer array qt
            private integer array an
            private integer array ap
            private integer array as
            private Table array tl
            private hashtable tt=InitHashtable()
           
            #define private segmentTimer = st
            #define private instanceCount = ic
            #define private segmentNext = sn
            #define private segmentPrevious = sp
            #define private segmentRunning = sr
            #define private segmentFirst = sf
            #define private timerNext = tn
            #define private recycler = timerNext
            #define private timerPrevious = tp
            #define private timerFirst = tf
            #define private nodeHead = nh
            #define private nodeTimeout = nt
            #define private queueId = qt
            #define private stackNext = an
            #define private stackPrevious = ap
            #define private stackTarget = as
            #define private structTable = tl
            #define private timerTable = tt

            #define private ln = 230.258509
        endglobals
     


    And I used definitions for operations too for highly readable code-
    Code (vJASS):

        #define private isRecyclerEmpty = (0==recycler[0])
        #define private allocateRecycled(nodeRef)
            nodeRef=recycler[0]
            recycler[0]=recycler[nodeRef]
        #enddefine //allocateRecycled
        #define private allocateNew(nodeRef)
            nodeRef=instanceCount+1
            instanceCount=nodeRef
        #enddefine //allocateNew
        #define private timerRecycleCode(nodeRef) = nodeHead[nodeRef]=0
        #define private allocate(nodeRef,recycleCode)
            if (isRecyclerEmpty) then
                allocateNew(nodeRef)
            else
                allocateRecycled(nodeRef)
                recycleCode
            endif
        #enddefine //allocate
     


    And really though, if cJASS were working, I'd go further and change like allocate recycled to popStack

    This...I agree, let us categorize this, GUI is a moderator of GUI, many user
    here who is capable of reading complex GUI triggers, I recommend guys like
    defskull, Spinnaker, Beefisblack, razor21, -Derp- and many more...
    on the otherhand, jazzers for jass codes, baassee,xBlackrose,Garfield is skilled enough to moderate things...

    EDIT:
    I really adore people like Bribe, Nestharus and Purgeandfire...

    I was moderating a decently active community when I was 13 as well, actually was
    the administrator, there's no reason I would say no to someone who had the right
    stuff even if they are 13 they have the capacity to moderate.

    -Bugz- sounds like he's older than 13 it wouldn't surprise me if he was older and
    pretending to be young. In fact I would have taken him for a native English speaker
    if I wasn't living in Germany and recognize certain punctuation mistakes and well of
    course the word Gymnasium instead of High School.

    Also, he has a nicely-developed vocabulary for someone of that age.

    The two most important things about a moderator is that they are not sick for power
    and that they care about the thing they are moderating. If you stop caring or start
    abusing the power, that's when it's no longer a good fit.

    Probably HINDYhat or BBQ =)


    HINDYhat appears to be active again and seems to know plenty of algorithms ; ). It sounds like Hindy's majoring in computer science.


    BBQ also knows lots ^^.
