code/__DEFINES/qdel.dm

Defines that give qdel hints.

These can be given as a return in /atom/proc/Destroy or by calling /proc/qdel.

QDEL_HINT_QUEUEqdel should queue the object for deletion.
QDEL_HINT_LETMELIVEqdel should let the object live after calling /atom/proc/Destroy.
QDEL_HINT_IWILLGCFunctionally the same as the above. qdel should assume the object will gc on its own, and not check it.
QDEL_HINT_HARDDELQdel should assume this object won't GC, and queue a hard delete using a hard reference.
GC_QUEUE_FILTERshort queue to filter out quick gc successes so they don't hang around in the main queue for 5 minutes
GC_QUEUE_CHECKmain queue that waits 5 minutes because thats the longest byond can hold a reference to our shit.
GC_QUEUE_HARDDELETEshort queue for things that hard delete instead of going thru the gc subsystem, this is purely so if they can softdelete, they will soft delete rather then wasting time with a hard delete.
GC_QUEUE_COUNTNumber of queues, used for allocating the nested lists. Don't forget to increase this if you add a new queue stage
QDEL_ITEM_ADMINS_WARNEDSet when admins are told about lag causing qdels in this type.
QDEL_ITEM_SUSPENDED_FOR_LAGSet when a type can no longer be hard deleted on failure because of lag it causes while this happens.

GC_QUEUE_CHECK

main queue that waits 5 minutes because thats the longest byond can hold a reference to our shit.

GC_QUEUE_COUNT

Number of queues, used for allocating the nested lists. Don't forget to increase this if you add a new queue stage

GC_QUEUE_FILTER

GC_QUEUE_HARDDELETE

short queue for things that hard delete instead of going thru the gc subsystem, this is purely so if they can softdelete, they will soft delete rather then wasting time with a hard delete.

QDEL_HINT_HARDDEL

Qdel should assume this object won't GC, and queue a hard delete using a hard reference.

QDEL_HINT_IWILLGC

Functionally the same as the above. qdel should assume the object will gc on its own, and not check it.

QDEL_HINT_LETMELIVE

qdel should let the object live after calling /atom/proc/Destroy.

QDEL_HINT_QUEUE

qdel should queue the object for deletion.

QDEL_ITEM_ADMINS_WARNED

Set when admins are told about lag causing qdels in this type.

QDEL_ITEM_SUSPENDED_FOR_LAG
