    Thumbs up An improvement for the board...

    So many people now ask questions, and are asked what compiler they are using.

    I honestly think that adding a new item on the left side of your post (where the Location, Posts, and Join Date go) would be a good improvement for this board.

    That new item would be a Compiler item. Seeing how this board runs on PHP, it wouldn't be hard for the webmaster to do.

    It would prevent a great number of posts from being posted, and it's a lot more important than where you live.

    Please give your opinion on this idea, Queatrix.

    I like it.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    If people don't put it on their signatures, why would they put it on some new field buried inside User CP options?

    And there's also the User Title.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I see you point, but I noticed that you asked me in a thread just today what compiler I was using, even though it is in my sig.

    Yes. That's because you made mention to something that I knew for a fact it wouldn't compile in any of the compilers you have in your sig. So I wondered what else were you using.

    Because a User CP option would at least inform them that it's potentially useful information, as opposed to having them somehow divine that fact and put it in their signature.

    It won't take them more than a day on the boards for the idea of putting the compiler in their sig suddenly pop out in their heads

    I see this as useful, though Dev-C++ is not a compiler.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    I used have them in my sig, then it wend all inviable, then that went away, and now it's colorful. Perhaps if it was a form on registration, just a tick option, if you get me.

    I give all credit to major_small for my sig - Code colouring All I did was change the letters.

    It annoys me when people have sigs longer than their own post, it would be nicer to have this a profile item rather than taking up room in your sig.
