[Suggestion] Combine comments
Return to board index
So, there are quite some achievements that have different tiers, like
. Now, the comments on those kind of achievements always involve any tier of it, and usually get posted on the 1st or last tier. So I thought, wouldn't it be easier to make 1 comment page for all tiers? This will stop people spamming posts in each page.
As with ranks of spells, it has been suggested but is apparently technically difficult within their design framework. Ranks will be going away with Cataclysm, though talents will still have this problem. I guess we'll have to see how they address it.
It shouldn't be too difficult of a job (since spell/achievement tiers appear to already stored in the database and retrieved when you view a page) to implement a check like this: (pseudo code)
IF rank > 1 THEN
comment_id = ranks
comment_id = id
Or in other words always saving/loading comments to/from the ID of the first tier of the spell/achievement.
However, I don't see how this issue in particular is that much of a problem (and it will become even less so in Cataclysm), so there's no rush to resolve it.
It has something to do with the way that they try to keep their data a mirror of WoW's data with as few shims as possible IIRC. There are a lot of things that they could do "easily" but I think they really try to adhere to that.
