Yeah I definitely believe that. Using .Name technically has to reference the Player object's Name which technically will take more time than just saving the name as a variable. Though it's less than 2 hundredths of a second

RE: Apparently, a variable for the player name is better than using .Name each time.
RE: add language compatibility for the site
If you're not willing to use Google's translate function embedded into Chrome, or Google Translate, there's really no other way to translate our site. Sure, we can hire native speakers to translate our main pages, TOS, etc., though a majority of the site is composed of user asked questions, which are primarily in English. It isn't cost effective to hire a native speaker to translate each and every question, especially since questions are created all the time, when there's an easier alternative such as a translate function embedded into Google Chrome.
RE: Eek, this site....
Question Titles- Another reason we filter the titles, as well as require it be a question, is for quality assurance purposes. If a question mark weren't mandated, users could freely say whatever they wish within a title, which of course isn't the purpose of a Q&A site.
Roblox Accounts- It's not that strange at all. Scripting Helpers is directed towards ROBLOX Lua, and the chances are if you're programming in that language, you most likely have a ROBLOX account. This is also in place to ensure we have the proper targeted audience within our site. We wouldn't want to confuse someone looking for a Q&A site based on regular Lua.
Chat Regulations- The relationship is quite clear between account age and the chance of it being an abusive user. As within any moderated community, account suspensions are handed out, and to reduce the chance of the user attempting to rejoin the community before their suspension is served, we add the 2 week minimum to prevent any accounts made for that purpose. Of course they could already have a current alternate account that is above the 2 week age, though, if we do spot it, we usually put a stop to it. It lightens the load on the staff as we aren't always there to moderate a user.
We're glad you're enjoying the community, and we encourage you to participate and be active within it, once your account passes the 2 week age requirement.
