20:38 mwn3d_phone shortcircuit: the main page has a link to the "solutions by" task cat, but the sidebar has a link to the flat task cat. Is there one in particular we want to use?
20:39 FireFly left #rosettacode
20:39 shortcircuit I don't have a good answer for that.
20:39 shortcircuit The sidebar links to the flat task cat because it can be very, very difficult to find the specific content one is looking for.
20:39 shortcircuit I think I simply overlooked the one on the main page.
20:40 shortcircuit The main page can probably be changed to link to the flat cat.
20:40 mwn3d_phone Yeah its nice to have the tasks in categories but new users would probably find the flat category easier to use
20:41 shortcircuit If we had properties associated with the various tasks, then we could use property browsing in the role that the Solutions By cat was supposed to fill.
20:41 mwn3d_phone Also I haven't really been keeping up on categorizing new tasks...
20:41 shortcircuit mwn3d_phone: *I* can't find my way around the Solutions By cat. That's a big reason why I switched the sidebar link. >.>
20:42 mwn3d_phone I'll keep that in the background in my brain and try to think of a nice way to tag tasks
20:42 mwn3d_phone Then maybe we could get a nice task search feature going
20:42 r4m left #rosettacode
20:43 shortcircuit mwn3d_phone: My suggestion would be to use a template for assigning tags to tasks, and then let folks apply tags as they will.
20:43 r4m joined #rosettacode
20:43 shortcircuit We've got plenty of smart people who look at things from different angles. Each viewpoint would yield a different set of tags.
20:44 mwn3d_phone Right...I want to think of a way to have something like {{tags|list, of, tags}} for tagging
20:44 shortcircuit (Although there may be some terminology conflict. That's probably unavoidable, but at least it can be discovered, discussed and clarified)
20:45 shortcircuit The parser functions extension for loops might be useful there.
20:45 mwn3d_phone Yeah...I'll need to read up on it
20:45 mwn3d_phone I'll sandbox some things soon hopefully
20:45 shortcircuit Eventually, I'll replace it.
20:46 shortcircuit I don't like the way this one works, but if I'm not careful in fixing it, I'll make the wiki Turing-complete.
20:46 shortcircuit That would be bad.
20:47 shortcircuit Actually, come to think of it, I probably don't need to worry as much as I thought I might.
20:47 shortcircuit The big fear would come from a template looping through arguments, and then transcluding a template which comes back to a parent template.
20:48 shortcircuit MW already has protections against that.
20:48 mwn3d_phone Yeah I think I tried something like that just to see
20:49 mwn3d_phone I think we have to worry more about it becoming self-aware and turning into skynet.rosettacode.com
20:50 mwn3d_phone It'll have a head start on learning a ton of programming languages and hackery
