Another PHP programmer responsible for things like the MicroMVC PHP framework.

You may notice that some of my questions run very deep into the heart of certain issues because I strive for the highest optimization that is possible in my apps.

comment Is it ok to require certain users to have JavaScript enabled?
I would assume that given an equally opportune pool next door (same price, same style, same service, etc...) that people without a cap, or who didn't like being required to wear one would attend there instead. However, which pool ultimately succeeded would be based on the people's like of caps.

It's true that users will do what they have to get what they want, but I don't want to make it any harder on them than necessarily. There is also the supply-demand curve which dictates (all things equal) that a competitor with a lower price (or in this case, lower-requirements) will get the business.

Wow, I didn't even know you could do this. Doesn't seem plausible for me, but neat to know.

@peteorpeter, i.e. spambots.

comment Is it ok to require certain users to have JavaScript enabled?
Good point. In my case, I'm not sure what percentage of users have Javascript disabled. I guess I could just use Yahoo!'s numbers for now and build it requiring Javascript and then add on support for non-Javascript agents if the need arises. But I was hopping for more information as it seems like a bad way to handle the situation.

@JoJo, it's not that easy too. This isn't a problem for a couple forms - but large sites have many user input locations. If you are using AJAX in the most efficient way, then you are only replying with a JSON response or HTML segment - not returning the whole page as with a normal POST. You would need to build each of your pages to return JSON or whole pages depending on context which doesn't seem worth it as a trade off if none of my registered users have Javascript disabled.
