S2 programming language[edit]

Self-re-nomination. I have nominated this at some point last year. The only objection it received at the time was that "we shouldn't dilute our list of featured articles with such obscure topics" (paraphrase from memory). Since the rules now state that "each objection must provide a specific rationale that can be addressed" (FAC-instructions) and this objection is not something I can address, I am re-nominating. — Timwi 15:30, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Object for now. Needs expansion (particularly the final two sections), and (a minor point) certain parts of it seem to be written for someone who is familiar with LiveJournal. plattopusis this thing on? 16:25, Apr 14, 2005 (UTC)
  • Object. No reference sections (or references are improperly formatted as external links). The lead section is ok, but the rest of the article is lacking. Just a few from many, many problems I see with this article: 1) Not a single code excerpt or example is provided is provided. 2) I'm not quite sure the concept of "layers" is properly explained (I certainly couldn't understand simply from the text in the article). What are layers concretely? Source files, class libraries? 3) Sections 2 and 3 are way too short. 4) Section mentions a web interface, which isn't mention anywhere else. 5) How does S2 compare to other scripting languages/stylesheet languages (CSS, JS, PHP)? Could we see a list of major projects using S2 (is it proprietary to LiveJournal?) Phils 16:38, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Object 1) as stated above cite your sources 2) I'd like to see some examples of the code (i.e. how would one program Hello World in this language?). slambo 16:45, Apr 14, 2005 (UTC)
