Title: Another big change for SMF 2.0 Beta 2
Post by: Thantos on January 13, 2008, 05:21:05 PM
Earlier today the devs got together online and had us a nice hour long chat.  One of the things we discussed was the $smfFunc variable.  In SMF 1.1 we have the $func variable.  However, the name could easily conflict with other software so we decided to change the name to $smfFunc which it was from the Alpha version through to Beta 1.

Without giving away our plans for world domination, it was decided that the name didn't fit with out long term plans as it ties it to the forum.  So we changed the name to $smcFunc.  Now what does SMC stand for?  I guess you'll just have to wait and find out later >:D

It was decided that if we were going to change the name that now really is a good time to do it as we've already made one change that touches each query and it would be easier on our mod authors if we made all such sweeping changes at once and then let things settle down.

For change itself is easy to make as you can just do a find/replace for it so we hope that it won't be too much work.

To me SMC stands for "sweet merciful crap" which is a phrase said by Homer Simpson, which was later used by a user on The No Homer's Club a forum I frequently visit for his username. :P

Is that it? :P

You're planning to make a CMS out of the board system, I'm guessing?
Not that it would be a bad idea, of course... ;)

I just noticed that the member colour ledgend has been added as a default feature of 2.0? or maybe the mod was just installed?

I like the Simple Machines Core idea, sounds good and its plausable
Title: Re: Another big change for SMF 2.0 Beta 2
Post by: metallica48423 on January 22, 2008, 04:57:10 PM
its more about what it means as opposed to what it stands for.  But we can't say anything on that right now

I've been thinking about it a lot, and now I'm sure it's Sarah Michelle Cellar.

Oh, sorry. Strike that, then.

It's not Sarah Michelle Cellar. I never said that. You never read that. You're sleepy. (Not you, SleePy.) You're going to bed. Tomorrow, you'll think SMC stands for Simple Machines Core-munity.

Sacrificed Manly Corn - for everytime the smcfunc is called, some corn is taken from a smaller farmer and sacrificed in a manly form; that makes sense, right?
Title: Re: Another big change for SMF 2.0 Beta 2
Post by: Gary on January 28, 2008, 04:38:49 AM
Then that must be worth an entire field considering how many times $smcFunc is called in there. :P

Finding them is only about 1/4 of the problem
Title: Re: Another big change for SMF 2.0 Beta 2
Post by: Fustrate on October 10, 2008, 10:39:45 AM
Ya, the other 3/4 is split up in this way:

1/8: "How the hell did that happen?"
3/16: "I'm tired."
1/32: "Might as well get to work on this..."
2/8: "Is there anything to eat around here?"
1/32: Find the cause.
2/16: Fix the cause.

('tis a joke, we appreciate your hard work :D)
