  • [bug?] Doted icon shows if post deleted

    I posted and deleted a reply on a thread, here at vB.com site.
    When I went back to the forumdiplay, I noticed that the doted icon is still there even if I actually didn't have anymore any posts into the thread.
    I only had one post there.

    Not a bug... the post still exists, it's just hidden from view.

        To elaborate a little, the post is hidden from view, but not by setting the 'visible' field to 0 - this is reserved for posts that are undergoing moderation. Rather, the post is compared against the deletionlog table, and if there is an 'isdeleted' entry for the specified post it is not shown.

        This allows posts and threads to be 'undeleted' and keeps them separate from posts that are invisible because they are being moderated.

          Shouldn't you make it so the dot no longer shows?

            I agree. That would make sense.

              Have you checked lately to see if it shows? I don't think it does any longer.

                  Something else should also happen if you mouseover the dot'ed icon.

                    Not on Mozilla, the title attribute seems to be missing.

                            Easter eggs rock. Tho since nothing is cached anyway, why not have folder icons for 1, 2, 3+, 5+, 7+, and 10+ replies?

                              How do you manage comparing each post in a thread with the deletionlog table without running a join query that usually causes problems for unoptimized servers, unless the entire deletionlog table is stored in memory?
