Blacklist = Default allow, block specific
Whitelist = Default block, allow specific.

I.E. At the moment only admins are able to edit posts that are not theirs. Gaijin is proposing a wiki-esque mechanism where users who meet certain criteria are granted permission to edit a specific post (or posts within a specific subforum) to ease the work of the admins in implementing the FAQ.

Thanks. Sounds good to me. Not that I think I can help with that though.
All you need to edit is the list of questions right?

I think the ideal format would be to write the original (summarised) question and link the post in which is was asked. The answers always appear just after so we wouldn't need to include them in the FAQ.

And this is all contingent on that functionality being possible.

This is the kind of thing that could be requested in the CS Wishes thread. I already have an active Wish, so I'll not be requesting it. However, it would be highly synergistic with my wish.

Well, my wish was about resizing images and it can't be done apparently, so I guess I can spend my wish on that. There is a long list of wishes though...

I'm still not exactly sure what the wish would be though, but if you want to write it for me I can post it.

It's not super important. I might bring it up later when the time is right.

The image resizing thing might be a matter of server memory. If they offered a rescaling feature and bogging down the site, it would either require saving a modified version to the server, or perhaps some temporary hosting image processing algorithms, and that could significantly increase demands on their system, especially if someone uses multiple resized images in a single thread or post.

More that it isn't appropriate for the site, than that it can't be done. Graphics are data hogs.

Actually it would be pretty easy if you let the browser handle it, i.e. use a CSS rule. No overhead necessary.

Do you have any sites that would work as an example? I don't know enough about vBulletin to know what meshes well or not. However, if we can find something to snip the relevant code from, it would be much easier to propose.

Volunteer psuedo-coders would fill a much needed role.

That's exactly what they said, Gaijin.

Maybe what I meant was that it canīt be done because it isn't appropriate for technical reasons. I only know how to write (poor) Matlab scripts, so I canīt help with that pseudo-coding business either, sorry.
