That's why they pay me the big bucks.

And now I have a new avatar.

Is there a specific reason that multiple posts in a row by the same poster are combined into a single post as subsequent edits instead of appearing as different posts?

I'm assuming it cuts down on purposefully inflating your post count and BUMPing threads, but it can also lead to people missing new content added by somebody.

I think it only does it within a certain time frame.

Just tested it, but yes, it cuts down on post count inflation, but isn't likely to cause you to miss any posts because it only merges posts within a certain (shortish) time frame.

ETA: Adjusted it down to 3 minutes.

This is something I've never seen before.  In this post by Lady_Hawkeye she posted a YouTube video.  On my screen (Both Windows laptop and iPad) the video does not display, but rather presents a solid black screen the shape and size of a normal YouTube video.  If I click on that section I get a standard YouTube message "An error occurred, please try again later.  Learn More".  That's all relatively normal (It could be a bad link, a bad video, bad coding, etc.) except that when I quoted the post, using the full quote feature (Button with the word "Quote", not the smaller button where you highlight a section of the post to quote) the full YouTube video did appear in the post field.  I then played the entire video (This one was Wolverine dancing to Single Ladies.  I chortled) with it displaying in the writing field in the Post a New Reply page.

Odd.

New discovery: When editing a post in the mobile format there is a "Delete" button that is not present in the full site. Using it returns a "You cannot do this" error from the system, I assume it's a holdover from when we could delete posts and the link wasn't removed from mobile.

Something has been happening to me here and there on the forum for a little while now.

On certain threads, even those that I started, sometimes, I'll stop being able to post in them and when I do try to post, a screen saying something like "Oops, this is embarrassing we can't find what you are looking for".

I can still post in other threads but it's like the forum locks me out of certain threads (for example, right now it's the movie mashup poster thread I started in the comic section).

Weird.

I have been attempting to post a post in several threads and it does not function properly, receiving a "This is somewhat embarrassing, isn't it?" Page Not Found error on both a direct post and also when trying to Preview the post, and getting the error on both my iPad and my laptop. However, this isn't a complete posting failure, as I have been able to post a test post in the same threads (My guess is that it's a length issue). Attempts to edit the test post to insert what I wanted to write gives the same error, except when I use the Quick Edit option, where it just doesn't do anything at all upon clicking "Save Changes".

EDIT: Okay, I did some testing, copy/pasting just the beginning section of my post-that-cannot-post, which is definitely shorter than other posts I've made, and I get the same Page Not Found error. I'm confused now and don't understand why it won't work.

EDIT THE SECOND: Oh, what the f---? I just copy/pasted the post again and deleted one specific paragraph in the middle of the post, and I'm able to Preview just fine, so I figure there's something in that paragraph causing a problem (Maybe I've somehow inserted an unprintable character or something) and I re-type that paragraph in the posting box...it doesn't work again.

I've also have been getting this problem now and then (I posted the same thing just over the JBK two messages up) and I'm not sure it's a length issue but maybe more of a "trigger word" thing.

Yesterday, I was trying to reply to Lester's post about my experience working as a makeup artist in a couple of porno and whenever I used some sexual words relating to the industry, I would get the "This is somewhat embarrassing, isn't it?" post also. It wasn't until I went with a very neutral reply without those words that I was allowed to post the message.

Edit: See, I got the same thing here. I couldn't post it until I changed from the word "a d u l t movie" to porno.

Holy @#$%, that's it!  In some immediate testing the combination of "lesbians" and "sexualization" was not allowed, but is in this post because I separated it with the "and".  There's some kind of keyword block set for certain words and terms, likely intended to prevent inappropriate discussions.

....uh, I was writing about the ending to Korra, I wasn't writing some kind of naughty post.....not yet anyway

Holy crap!

In a week, I managed to fix my dad's wifi problem and a forum issue here.

Considering I'm almost an Amish with a laptop, that's either really good or the first sign of the coming apocalypse.....

Huh, so this is odd. Apparently "Purim" is on the list of blocked words (I snuck it in her with the internal-italics cheat).

I checked, "Purim" is still on the block list.

Did you have it followed by a word starting with "-ming" by any chance? :-)
