Reading What Sucks

Is editing your posts considered a new post ?

77% | 3

I noticed it recently, when my rank dropped to the lowest one (b/c i did't visit NAO in, like, three months :D).

editing a post eats up one post from your post stock. when you have 0 posts left - you cannot edit your posts for a while. that really sucks, especially when you make a typo or would like to rephrase your statement that you just wrote. (and yeah, i always triple check my post before i put it on the forum, but some things just strike you later).

it sucks even more when your rank is low, since this is a waste of posts to me.

i don't know whether it's intentional or not. couldn't find anything on it in help topics. maybe it is somehow intended (so that you pay more attention to your posts). if so, tell me :]

I can't change your rank or daily post allowance, but if you run out of posts just drop me a line and I can give you a bunch more posts for that one day. You're a nice enough person, so I don't think we need to shut you up after 3 posts to protect the forum. :-)

Well that's not what i meant. I can wait till my rank rises and my posts are restocked. I'm very patient.

I just thought it could be a bug of sorts - losing one post just per edit seemed pretty weird to me.

I have a habit of using various bugtrackers, so i thought i would report this odd behavior here. (Couldn't help it :D)

you're a nice enough person

hmm i seem nice enough?...Thanks! I'm doing my best :]

Aah, it might be. I couldn't tell tho as I've seen neither the finished code nor the inside of Jaz's brain during the design process. But in any case I'm glad you can live with it :-)

Talking about Jaz: Is he somewhat alive these days? Has he done any code action on the current version of NAO since, lets say, begin of this year?

I know he is alive, as he attended my stag night and wedding a month ago. Unfortunately we didn't have much time to chat, so I don't know what he's doing at this very moment.

I talked to him through sms a couple of weeks ago, and he's still alive and very much into classes :P
As far as whether he's coding still or not, I couldn't know, but from what I understood he's quite busy with his classes and exams and papers, and all that jazz.
Let's hope he checks in soon, so that he can see that we're talking about him ;)

Oh Jaz, talk to us again! :) Please, our Lord, come and speak once more.

Lol, I am glad you had a little time to check in on nao. I'd really like to see you more often though.
