With a magic script you mean? Can you link to an edit page with this entire dialog?

~ Lumenos (talk)12:01, 6 January 2011

Well, if you write the script, sure...

So I guess we agree? I think my edit of the LQT article was correct. You censor

~ Lumenos (talk)12:45, 6 January 2011

Except who cares that you can't copy conversations. You're not supposed to.

The license allows us to copy with attribution. If we aren't supposed to, you should change the license to forbid copying. What are you so scared of?

Secondly, the requirement of scripts to rearrange comments is a security disadvantage. I'm adding these things back to the article.

This isn't an issue of copyright. We simply do not want you to copy conversations someplace else and then reply there, because it's annoying and confusing. You are of course, free to copy the text to your wiki (comment by comment if you can't find a better way), the license allows you to do that. But there are other issues beyond copyright as well.

If it is something "we" all agree on, then why don't you just make a rule at Community Standards? I follow the rules. This is much like digital rights management.

What about requiring scripts for things we didn't used to need them for? It is not a deal-breaker since drag and drop is not something I'm particularly interested in, but that is a disadvantage IMO.

Which part of "it will be done, it's just not available yet" do you not understand?

-- Nx / talk14:19, 6 January 2011

Umm all of it. I don't know what you are saying will be done or where you have said so.

~ Lumenos (talk)14:32, 6 January 2011

It will be possible to move comments without scripts. It's just not done yet.
