Cplusplus.com Wishlist

We had one of these a while ago, but it died, and I'd like to bring it up again. Let's hope twicker takes a peak at this topic and at least some of the suggestions get added.

My list:
- System that tells who reported who
- Some sort of signature system (so that people like Albatross don't have to repeatedly write out their sig)

System that tells who reported who

I'm pretty sure twicker knows who reports who (or some admin does).

Some sort of signature system (so that people like Albatross don't have to repeatedly write out their sig)

A good idea, although some browsers offer that.

I'd add removal or change of the "close account" feature.

No, so others can see who reported who. If you can report someone you should have the guts to let everyone know it was you.
If we do have a signature system, I would like it to be one-line only with no images and only the formatting options usually allowed in posts.

That said, I'd rather not have one at all because I don't see the point: you can either use it to simply sign your posts with a name (even though your username is at the top of every post) or to have some obnoxious graphics or formatted text or passive-aggressive out-of-context quotes of other users, or narcissistic quotes of yourself. As far as I can see, there's no need for it. If you don't like having to manually write a signature at the end of every post then don't.

I'm not sure about the reporting thing. I agree that you should stand by your actions but there's nothing gained by being able to see who reported who (or who reported you), and it could result in backlash against a user for fairly reporting people.

I want a `select all' for the text inside the code tags.
And a bicycle.
I have a suggestion for the tutorial on this website. I have learnt a lot here. It would be nice if there could be a simple tutorial explaining the c++11 specific concepts like unique pointers, lambdas, etc.
The tutorials probably need an update in general.
The tutorials were updated just recently, were they not?

I think only the docs have been updated? They are certainly up to date, but I don't remember seeing the tutorials section longer than usual.
If signatures are supported, should use caution when allowing the same markup as is allowed in posts....If signatures are supported, should use caution when allowing the same markup as is allowed in posts....


Otherwise, the overall site viewability might suffer - especially on mobile devices.

whenever i click on a link it automatically goes to a new tab instead of having to do it manually. also, it would be nice to have some basic support for other languages, although thats probably not all of that realistic

That will create an eye for an eye situation.

I am with chrisname and Luc Lieber on this one.

It should also be simple enough to design an algorithm to do this.

Also, support for https links. scratch that.

We could do something like:
[code=java] [/code]
with nothing defaulting to c++

I'm pretty sure this is a browser setting. Firefox, at least, has Tools → Options → Tabs → When a link opens a new tab, automatically switch to it.

it can be a browser setting but you can also do it as a web dev

I think DTSCode meant that when you click on a link in the forum (like this one: https://www.google.com ) that it opens a new tab without having to "ctrl click" or "open link in new tab" it.
Make it so that there's an option to mark the C and C++ code as being of a certain standard.
All other languages are fine with [output][/output] in my opinion.

[code std=c++11]constexpr int i=5;[/code]

Note: this code was written in the C++11 standard. <link>
constexpr int i=5;                             

I know implementing this isn't a walk in the park, but I believe it will show its usefulness in the near future.

It is a web developer choice:

<a href="http://cplusplus.com">open in same window</a>

OR

<a href="http://cplusplus.com" target="_blank">open in new window</a>


I know browsers can override this behaviour, but few users changes the settings in the browser.

its not that big of a deal really. it would just be nice and shouldnt be too hard to implement
