comment Should constant values be in SHOUT_CASE when there is language support for them?
I personally have not run into many uses of defined constants in Javascript, but YMMV. Most readability guidelines are just that; guidelines. If something makes your code harder to read, then feel free to use a different standard. I often find internal consistency is much more valuable than any single guideline.

Thanks for a great answer. +1 and the cigar.

Do you not design databases before you build them? My question is on designing a database. Not troubleshooting one. I am not in the debugging stage yet, and even if I were, that would go to StackOverflow, not Programmers. Per the FAQ: Programmers covers algorithm and data structure concepts, design patterns, software architecture, software engineering... Not troubleshooting bottlenecks.

Well, it's a web app. A lot of users are potentially going to be modifying data fairly frequently. I'd imagine a lot of factors like you mention affect it differently. I'm not so familiar with those specifics; that's partially why I'm asking here.
