So as I was posting up some of my artworks I ran into some annoying issues.
One is that post titles have a minimum length of 9 characters for posting and 10 for editing/updating (yes, different limits!) One art I posted is titled “Lighting”, which is 8 characters, so in order to be able to post I had to add a character (I added a dot) after it to pass this limit. Then when I wanted to edit the title I had to add another to make it 10… which second dot by the way wasn’t actually saved. Weiiiiird.
Another annoyance is the various popup warnings to the right of the editing field. There is one asking things like “Is your title meaningful?” or “What does your thread contribute to the forums?” which apparently constantly appears as long as you are trust level 1. I get it that the idea is to teach people who only know Twitter how a forum should be used, but it gets extremely annoying after the first few times.
But even worse is the “Your topic is similar to…” overlay, because not only it comes up very single time you post, but as you keep editing your post it will come up over… and over… and over again, covering the preview. When I was uploading the first few artworks and was experimenting with the right formatting for the text I had to close it at least 40 times, just so that I can actually see the preview…
P.s.: I mentioned the 3 thread per day limit for level 1 users already, and now I just realized that this limit applies to artworks too since they are threads. So a new user can ask one question and upload two artworks then has to wait a whole day. So I once again recommend raising the limit.
