No, programmers usually have some plausible reason as to why they are being lazy.

There is just no argument here.

No, their argument is usually, "So it's a few extra steps! So what!? It saves me going back into this mess and mucking around in it!".



Anyways, there's no developer working on the forums - these updates are just modules which they can easily install. What you're asking for probably can't just be patched on... they would have to code it in. How many of you actually expect Darlene to put away the oven mits, set the ringer to low, and start programming in the functionality for this?

Laziness, in my opinion.

How very sexist.
These are not even my forums to program. Unixmad is in charge of that.

It's not laziness. There is no reason to go through extra steps when it could be easily done. You probably agree with me, and you're just arguing for the sake of "being right". Yes, it's unnecessary, yes, it would make the forum more enjoyable, no, it's not laziness wanting it to be done.

Hey, common' guys. Cut some slack.

And in regards to this issue, this is a feature request.

Convenience is good. Look at Google, or Yahoo. They try to do everything they can for you, rather than send you somewhere else.

And if the reason you are not doing it is because you don't have the man power to, don't say the reason is "because it's fine the way it is". Say the reason is that you can't; doing so opens other venues, such as other people helping you.

I wasn't aware that you held any sort of education in programming.

I have already very clearly stated that they don't have the developer needed to create this sort of custom functionality.

I wasnt saying it can or cannot be done. I am sure it can. I was just giving my opinion on the issue.

Sorry, I was talking to Darlene.

"You cant have everything you ask for."

The point is that your opinion wasn't one directly relating to this issue, after making generalizations like that. It was part of an ideology that simply wishes to leave things the way they are.

I believe that you shouldn't have that ideology simply because something is a hassle. You should instead open up your arms and make use of the resources out there to make the changes possible. Or "put on some elbow grease", to go on with the blatant sexist remarks here, and learn how to do it yourself.

tbh, most programmers are lazy. Graphic artists are usually lazy or ***. Ganiers are usually immature.
