Hey, how can I get Discourse to do X?


#1461

Well they usually implement these things for a reason. I just don’t think QT3 has wall of text issues.


#1462

We will have to look in the settings to see if it can be toggled off.


#1463

Oh, it’s all for a reason. That doesn’t mean the reason is good.


#1464

This should be fixed now.


#1465

Collusion! We need a special prosecutor who is impartial!


#1466

I’m impartial. I hate Apple no matter what they do.


#1467

502s are apparently still happening.


#1468

Hey, how do i get Discourse to… Do posts?

Cause the problem is definitely not a feature of the thread length. Something else is screwed up.


#1469

Seems like it started happening last Sunday (for me at least)


#1470

It happened with a Discourse update. I’ll trigger another tomorrow to see if it addresses the issue.


#1471

Does it seem to only be longer-lived threads? Maybe a “new feature” is causing a conflict with the old imported data from the forum migration. I have no evidence of this, just thinking with my developer brain.


#1472

At the same time it’s odd that only some people encounter it.


#1473

Is it possible it’s related to some of those stupid nanny features, where it’s like “this part is similar to blah blah”?

Potentially, it could be a bug in the code that’s checking some nanny rule.


#1474

I was unable to duplicate a 502 error even after posting multiple times.

Anyway, I just changed a bunch of parameters and also disabled brotli on cloudflare, is it still happening?


#1475

Did anyone weigh in on what browser or platform they’re having errors on? I didn’t see mention of that but I might have missed a response. (I’ve had no trouble on iOS Safari).


#1476

FYI


#1477

Sigh. Until @clay’s bug report bears fruit, we’re going to have to live with it, I guess.


#1478

If it makes you any happier, I haven’t had any problems. Woo hoo?


#1479

Yes, it only seems to happen in very active threads.

On the bright side my changes do seem to have sped up the forum a bit, posting seems faster.


#1480

Discourses’ willingness to separate the reply menu from the actual thread, remember that content, then allow you to carry that content on between posts should be a feature but often seems a bug. A good double digit % of my posts have to be edited because of run-on content.

I like that it saves in progress replies but don’t like how it disassociates that reply dialog from the thread it belonged to.
