We should all get +DEBUG

Postby tacolizard » Thu Aug 31, 2017 3:36 pm #332480

I can't tell you how many times it would've been useful to have this. Every contributer should have it. It would make finding bugs a lot easier. Are there really any reasons not to?

Very very abusable. Even if it's just view variables without edit, it lets you see all kinds of hidden information.

isn't VV part of another set of permissions?

i do see your point, but as long as you just make sure that the person who gets it has contributed at least a few PRs, there shouldn't be much of an issue. After all, it's easy to see if someone is abusing it

The entire testmerge process needs to be overhauled
Feedback pls (Don't bother though, because I am perfect)

Did you just ask for every person who coded to get the absolutely most dangerous admin flag second to permissions?
Lol.

Can't you just like, test your pr locally first?
Also viewing variables is not under +DEBUG.
+DEBUG is stuff like mapping verbs and sqdl2 queries. As well as editing some more dangerous vars.
Also, you probably meant to post this here. viewtopic.php?f=9&t=32

I could probably win a bet on how quickly doing this would backfire! If you need to test something as a contributor, bug an admin to give you temporary permissions! Only maintainers have earned (most of them, anyway) the trust to not destroy the server faster than Kev and HBL at the same time.

If you need temp coder rank for a testmerge (and it's a feature that can't feasibly be tested offline solo) just ask the headmins
i play Lauser McMauligan. clown name is Cold-Ass Honkey
i have three other top secret characters as well.
tell the best admin how good he is

It would be good if admins were encouraged to provide debug information when coders ahelp for it. Maybe a verb that lets admins pass a read-only VV window to a ckey.

Admins usually help, but no one really asks anything most of the time.

I would delete this thread but I'm not a pussy.

One time I got admins to teleport me into the vault to see if that radiation bug was still a thing
