    Default cached pages or backups

    peps keep del OP after problem is solved. please make it so backup data stays for 24 hours or so. or maybe add some sort of revision control to the forum. This way, we can dig up the codes and post it back.

    LOL, I just searched this site for this forum to ask this very question. Of course it's in reference to this thread: [SOLVED] Need help making 2d graph, with x and y

    I'd like to post the original question so that if his professor searches forums, he'll see the homework assignment posted.

    I saw these threads. It is not good for forum either. I guess i can play with some parameters to prevent "deletion of threads after a few minutes" but i also dont want to add too much rules to the forum.

    My first priority is to make this forum a friendly place for everyone. But each user can have different preferences. We should find some balance at that point and if we will forbid preferences of some users, we should be sure that this is the best choice that we can make.

    I dont think this a frequent issue. If it is so, it will be harmfull for the forum too in addition to the readers who check those threads. So, since it is an infrequent event, i prefer to contunie allowing this behavior. But if it becomes a frequent event, i will use my vote to prevent that.

    Your opinions are important for me too. I just try to find the good for the majority of users and the future of the forum. Basically, we should think twice or more before adding any new rules to the forum.

    Yes, his opinions are really valuable. But as you said, lots of rules can cause lot of problems later. Specially when we advising about those rules on newbies they can get angry and may be leave the forum.

    ...prevent "deletion of threads after a few minutes"...
    I think 3-4 hours limit should be enough since most problems(hw assignments) req more time than that. Mind you that I am not asking for more rules, but some sort of "recycle bin" that the moderator can use to bring back the deleted data (to prevent abuse). Offcourse, this seems too costly... i guess...

    Actually all the things depends on this I guess. Administrators need to have an income on there way. We, as moderators, just touch and go with them. Anyone didn't pay for us. But we did it just as a hobby. Personally I like to help others who are trying to learn something new. :)

    Smile the macro scale

    Eranga bites the core of the problem here, funding - we see this so often on the macro scale.

    I interject here that doing a site of this caliber resolves to a rather chaotic ( system model ) where there is in fact no balance. We have a few nasties from time to time, actually I think they are funny if they do not overload the traffic - the poster who asks a homework issue with no prior work also is a pestilence as viewed from traditional thought models.

    For me, what the issue is best scoped by is the mind of the mechanic v artisan or humanities. My New Team Lead reports that the only thing being shipped from academia these days is Silver Tongue Lyrics - far pointers cannot get near their lofty perch, and thus rulers with Grandiose Ideas of World Economic Stability are viewed with glazed eyes and jaundiced demeanor.

    I don't know where the scrappy angryboy links to, but I sure know the issue - and deeply so.

    I met a famous Tier-1 Producer once, he advised me to leave all the Fancy for those who want it and just go rent some equipment and hire some hands - I can envision a Brewery somewhere,... a Master - sitting at a keyboard and monitor, tries to monitor a site on http.

    Where's the balance?

    There is none.
