I might actually give this one ago, since I couldn't be bothered with the previous 4. :ph34r:

In Topic: Game Maker 8 And Softwrap: Yes Or No?

15 December 2009 - 04:19 AM

I really don't mind. I had no issues with Softwrap last time so I voted yes; however if YYG think that using their own SoftDRM will be easier for all GM users then I think 3 months isn't that all long to wait.

I'm not fussed.

It's a shame they don't have spell checkers that give you a shock every time you over use commas.

Yes, but commas are a part of grammar/punctuation, not spelling, most - if not all - browser spell-checkers only look for spelling mistakes, not grammar mistakes. Or at least, it's been like that in my experience (only thing I've used that's even attempted grammar correction is MS Word).

Anyway, back on topic, I agree with the idea. Definitely worth the two minutes it would take to set up.

It's not really the same context. Read this again:

"I'd say if it doesn't make viewing the page quicker, which is what the author stated is whole point, then the script is useless"

When I read this I am thinking that he is stating the extension is completely useless. It is more like saying "I'd say if the celery does not contain any sugar, which is a requirement for something to be tasty, then celery isn't tasty". It's an opinion yes, but it's an opinion stated as a generalisation.

Okay, well, now that we KNOW what he meant, and understand that it was a simple communication error (with no one particular person at fault), is discussion of that really necessary? Different people can interpret senetences differently, that's okay, but for now, shall we focus on the topic at hand? :huh:

Anyways, I am going to download this now and give it a shot now that I have some time on my hands. I'll edit with my feedback. :(

Edit: oops, took me a while :( Anyway, to be honest I thought it looked slightly ugly. However, that's probably just me because I like looks to be crisp/spiffy and I'd think that's harder to achieve with this sort of script.

The actual effect is kinda nice, however I am not so sure it's all that time saving. To some, it could be, it really just depends on the way you use your browser/your preferences on reading topics. I mean, I personally do not come onto this place all that much any more, to be honest, but when I do I like to read topics basically from start to finish. Meaning that I'm either re-reading things with this script or going through the whole topic anyway, which means it's not all that useful.

That's not to say it can't be useful at all to other people, however I just don't think the effort is all that worth it. I guess I'll see if I start being a little more active on this place. :GM065:

People always find ways to say something is bad...sigh

Or, perhaps some things ACTUALLY have flaws and people try to point them out?

To each their own, there's no point in arguing with him that his point is not valid if it is his opinion that it is useless, as that's his opinion and he is entitled to think that. ;x
