I have a suggestion for future development on LttD.

Perhaps each strata could be assigned a blind comment feature--like the BCC on email, which only equal to or greater than profiles could view.

I often see useful opportunities to comment about an outsider's post, but not in such a way that only member's can see. I'm sure higher ranks could members as well.

Just a thought...

I really like this idea but have no clue how hard it would be for someone to implement it.

PMs are individual. I'm thinking of view by strata.

From the look of this board I would think that it was built based off of a php design.....if that is the case with admin rights to the board anonymous posting could be implemented. I'm told there are also some hacks to do that as well but php is pretty hard to crack through as it was designed by a bunch of hackers to begin with.

What would be the point of hacking anything here? Aside from being rapidly and rightly banned, only a fool would risk the consequences of invading COS security--even if successful.

My purpose is legitimate functional enhancement.

For clarity's sake.

A "hack," in terms of forum software and most web-based software like communities, is a Modification to the software that provides features not originally put into the software.

Implementing the "Arcade" feature is usually considered a "Hack."

Hacking most web-based software usually deals with adding and in some cases removing code that allows more function-ability by either adding features or taking away features one doesn't find useful.

I don't believe anyone meant in a malicious manner. The terms "hack" and "hacking" are seen by most as purely malicious attempts by idiots to destroy software, but in the world of programming it's has a broader meaning.

As far as if it could be done, yes it can. And php wasn't neccisarly developed by 'hackers' per se. It's also not that difficult to learn as if you know C/C++, it makes it even easier to learn.

Implenting small changes is also pretty easy as there are tons of "hacks/mods" available for most popular board software.

The way he wrote the post looks iffy--but perhaps it's just phrasing. I hope you are correct. I would love to see this happen.
