Search - "wontfix"
Sometimes the best "bug" are the troll posts, although personally I agree with it (even though a separate byte for both \r and \n make sense to keep for other purposes).8
Recently in a project of mine people started to raise tons of issues and suggesting fixes "just slap this module on it", "just do this", "just do that". And no respect for the project whatsoever. Code contributions? Don't even think about it.
The users raising these do not know what language the project is written in, they do not know whether it supports modules at all (let alone that particular one), and they have no idea whatsoever what the code is like, or how this suggestion 99% of the time would not at all integrate with the overall structure of the project. And aside from all that, don't fucking tell me what to do with my project!
My question is, how do you deal with these people? All I can think of is "wontfix™️" or even "cantfix™️" in some cases. Given that this is an endless slew of users, anything long-term?1
People who willingly install and use development branch web browsers and then send inages of exploded websites when using said browsers.
What a vast and great eco-system we have (refering to js and npm) almost every time I am trying to use two libs and combine them to work together some shit happens.
So I wanted to have lean and good written code without introducing unnecessary renders and logic.
Ended up doing just that because 'we know about issue with our library, many users told us that, too bad we wont fix that shit', so I feel like a 'workaround' developer at some hackathon right now!
So... the usual has happened and I've already got a wontfix this month. OTF PS3 FTP plugin "only supports passive mode, not active mode", will accept 500MB of uploaded data then close the port on passive mode. Active mode "is not supported" amd "doesn't accept connections" and passive mode "cannot possibly fail because it's better" and "must have been corrupted before being installed on my PS3."
Guess which mode works flawlessly?1
