Re: possible good expensive firework display

Well rockets are notoriously difficult to launch (and land) but there you go, maybe us Brits can do better...... oh hang on.

Nothing like a bit of negative envy on our part to help these things along I guess. Personally, I take my hat off to them.

Thanks @Oldjim

@jaread83 did you know if you click the quick reply button and enter a quick reply such as "D'oh" (sans quotes) and click post it flashes briefly and disappears without posting the quick reply?

Hi @Browni,

I recently requested that empty posts should no longer happen (there is no point having empty posts) so you need at least 5 characters to post a reply now.

The quick reply thing is because the normal behaviour of quick reply is that you need to click another button to view the post but I have a script in place that will automatically reload the page and display your reply. The only issue with this now is that if your post fails validation (less than 5 characters in the post) it would still reload the page after hitting reply and the validation message will be lost. I can remove the quick reply reload script but I think the normal way that this works would annoy most users by having to click another button to view the reply (hence why I created it in the first place).

Re: possible good expensive firework display

@jaread There's a flaw in the logic if validation errors can be 'lost'.

Re: possible good expensive firework display

Yeah I know. It's because the page reloads after submitting the quick reply message regardless of whether the validation fails or not.

I can 100% guarantee that anyone who uses the quick reply will hate the normal way that it works (without reloading and focusing on their reply).
