I don't think that a shorter variable name is actually any faster to process.

- I don't see why not. First it has to find the variable to report it's value, and if it's a longer name, it's more parsing to do to check if it's the right variable. At least from my knowledge.

Rename the variables in the example?
I think that we should rename the variables in the example to more descriptive ones (for example, "si" for "string index").

- I think no. In fact, you could change the name all you want and it would still be the same. They can choose to change it

- Yes, it would be the same, but it makes it harder to follow. This is a tutorial, and having variables like "i", "i2", "i3", etc... doesn't exactly show what they're supposed to be doing or why they go where they are.

Don't do cloud lists
Instead of doing cloud lists, shouldn't we just focus on the encoding/decoding?

- It's still necessary to relate the usage of encoding or decoding with cloud lists though - completely removing any mention of cloud lists isn't a wise idea as there still needs to be a "directory" for people to refer to.

Could an Administrator roll this page back to this version? The person who decided to 3.0-ify it didn't understand why it was undone in the first place.
I would do it myself, but MediaWiki won't allow me to.

- Rollback isn't meant for situations like this--it's really only supposed to be used for reverting a lot of edits by a certain user quickly or (in some cases) very clear rule violations.
- If you just think that several edits by a certain user on a certain page need to be undone, you can do that yourself:
- Go into the page history.
- Click the timestamp of the latest revision that you want to keep.
- Click "edit source" on the old revision.
- Add a summary along the lines of "reverting to x revision because y."
- Click "save changes."
- Reversion complete.
- Hope this helps.

- Thanks. I managed to revert the page, and also leave a comment so users don't attempt to 3.0-ify it again.

- I have feelings, I am not a bot.
- "The person who decided to 3.0-ify it didn't understand why it was undone in the first place." is an example of rudeness
- Add why it was undone.
