I recently did a code review on Tic Tac T-OO: Design and Implementation, and as such took a little interest in the other answers related to this question. Currently there are only two, and I got into a little discussion regarding the use of one or two dimensional arrays to represent the tic-tac-toe game board.
I was clearly not able to get my meaning across, so after a few comments the other answerer asked to move it into a char. I went into the chat room, asked a few questions and the other user did not respond, and has now left the room. In addition the original comments on the answer has now been removed. The last comment before going into chat room was the "I appreciate your input, ...".
My questions are as follows:
- Is it normal to remove the comments from the original answer?
- Has I behaved inappropriately when commenting since the comments has been removed?
Just to be clear: I don't have any issue with choosing different designs or solution, I was merely trying to understand why he wanted to push a one dimensional array, and considered that a better option. And I do not want to discuss that here. Here I want to get an understandig if this is normal behaviour, and how to handle such a situation.
I also see that the comments could be considered ´chatty´, but shouldn't one or two be left standing so as to indicate that there is a question regarding the use of one or two dimensional arrays?
