Hey, how can I get Discourse to do X?


#1441

I deleted it, after verifying it posted OK.

If the animated GIF thread is super long too, that’s probably the same problem.


#1442

I made a new thread to continue the discussion:

If there are no objections, maybe we could lock the old thread with a note directing people to that one?


#1443

Aight.


#1444

Sorry about the bland title.


#1445

You damn well should be!!!!!


#1446

You forgot (that’s interesting).


#1447

Looks like I can’t post to the gif thread. Is there something going on with long threads just now, particularly? Is there a common issue? @stusser


#1448

Yeah, maybe. I updated a day or two ago and the problems started then. No further updates available yet.


#1449

One day, hundreds of years from now, forum software will be able to handle over 10,000 posts!

(Just teasing I love you Discourse.)


#1450

Does it matter if I start a new gif thread? Or is waiting better?


#1451

I’m going to try a rebuild – it might pull down an incremental version that addresses the issue.


#1452

Ok, I did a rebuild… if you continue to experience problems that are easy to reproduce, let me know and I’ll file a bug report.


#1453

Right after posting on another thread.


#1454

Still can’t post in the gif thread. 502.


#1455

Same here.


#1456

Getting errors trying to post my weekly screenshots to the Board game thread. Discord is imploding!


#1457

Hmm, that thread is only at around 2k posts, doesn’t seem like that should be a problem.

But in a couple weeks we could start a new one anyway since the current one is labeled Boardgaming in 2018.


#1458

Hey @stusser or @clay or somebody, is this a new feature? The system removed my quote of Vesper’s post.

Presumably that’s because I quoted in full the post just before mine, which I sorta understand, but given the choice I’d rather it not do that, or maybe just warn me about it but let me keep it in my post if I want it.

Is this possible to turn off, and if so, do others have an opinion?


#1459

I had this happen to me too. I wasn’t a fan. I could adjust to it easily enough, but it seems like a completely unnecessary feature, especially when the post is small.


#1460

No no, y’all need to listen to daddy Jeff. He knows best.
