Re: [Wil] New Username Hyperlink Plugin In reply to
Consistency is very good -- but it can be broken if there's a specific need to, or if you can explain why you want to break it. It is broken in this case because I specifically wanted it broken. I always liked the [ username ] syntax, and wanted to emulate it on our site. RedRum generously wrote the plugin at my request, and even more generously, made it available for anyone who also wanted the same functionality.

Of course, anyone who chooses to break consistency must go into it knowing that new additions or modifications need to be carefully monitored. That's simply part of doing something out of the norm.

The purpose of Plugins are to facilitate installation of new GT and user-created features. They're not mandatory installations, -- anyone who doesn't agree with the philosophy of the plugin, or prefers to maintain consistency on their own board, can simply choose to not install it Smile
