⚠️ Warning: This is a draft ⚠️
==Obsessed??== Some contributors are obsessed with:
- Very long historical and technical preludes;
- Multiple comments (almost on each line);
- Unnecessary multiple pound and other signs. All this makes code "dirty", hard to read and maintain. I'm just curious: who will read such preludes, comments?
An obvious sample is the first version of dragon curve in R. I thought that contributor is for sure obsessed with pounds...
Or trying to camouflage original code.. Although original code has a lot of pounds too, but RC contributor added even more! LOL See for yourself: http://rstudio-pubs-static.s3.amazonaws.com/185483_0f31b11d2def43aea33658b5b7908cf3.html

BTW, it’s impossible to find who is the contributor of the first version of R.--[[User:AnatolV|AnatolV]] : Probably not a great idea to make disparaging remarks about other peoples code. That being said, it's a public wiki. If there is code that is unidiomatic or messy, clean it up. Just be aware that some users are very protective of their contributions and coding styles. : As far as who contributed the first R example, looks like it was [http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Werewolff519 Werewolff519]; see [http://rosettacode.org/mw/index.php?title=Dragon_curve&type=revision&diff=196234&oldid=195807 this revision] --[[User:Thundergnat|Thundergnat]] ([[User talk:Thundergnat|talk]]) 12:58, 4 March 2017 (UTC) ::TYVM Thundergnat! Now I can see: he attached solution to Perl with no comments. I did the same when I started here. LOL But later I've found it is useful to leave a short comment. I was hoping the contributor is one of the authors of the cited article. But, in general, it doesn't matter for me. ::I will continue discussion on my Talk page.

== Scrollable examples? ==
The scrollbar in the D example freaked me out at first. I'm not sure how good it would look if all examples did that. I think we should either have all scrolling examples (only for longer examples, of course) or none at all. --[[User:Mwn3d|Mwn3d]] 06:46, 4 April 2008 (MDT)
The QD example? That's an SDL window; it shouldn't have scrollbars. I certainly didn't code any in. [[Special:Contributions/188.8.131.52|184.108.40.206]] 03:33, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
:I think he's referring to the presentation of the text mode example program itself. —[[User:Dkf|Donal Fellows]] 10:00, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
