- Users and the admin – Another great post by James. In general I agree with the Django Admin philosophy of "if you can’t rely on your site administrators to do the right thing, then they shouldn’t be your site administrators" I have to disagree and say that pre-filling an "Authored by" field should be standard practice for app developers.
You have the user logged in and they're authoring the content so it's a logical conclusion that the field shouldn't have to be manually selected.
By day, I serve a group of fantastic engineers at Pindrop.
By night, I fight crime and solve mysteries with a robot pal of my own creation.
By midday, I like a snack, generally a cookie.
Part of this biography isn't true (hint, I like cookies and engineering, I don't own a robot).
