How the fuck has nobody noticed this bug yet?!


  • area_deu

    3902‌3 posts or 3902‌2 replies.

    They're different things (OP is a post but not a reply).


  • area_deu

    And filed:



  • Looks like it didn't get a category, bug or otherwise...


  • area_deu

    Oh whoops. forgot that.
    meta.d doesn't enforce categories like this place which makes me always forget about categorizing there.

    I didn't notice because with short topics, where the OP is still loaded when in the topic, they don't show the summarize block and it says "# Posts", which is right, while with long topics where you would see that summarize block, I don't go look at the OP anymore.

    I just realized that could be why the Discodevs didn't either.

    Also, there have been how many other bugs for us to notice?



  • So you've distracted them from real problems with minutiae, eh?


  • sockdevs

    To be fair, it's slightly more important than round avatars :stuck_out_tongue:



  • It's a small word that obviously no one reads or they would have noticed it earlier. As opposed to trolling all of your users by mangling their self selected images.

    How is it? As @boomzilla said - no one has noticed this in the like 11 months we've had Dischorse.



  • I can only think that "small" was sarcastic and hyperbolic. She was pointing out that this minor typo pales in comparison to features that are basically outright sabotage.


  • sockdevs

    I was thinking more 'accurate info is more important that avatar corners', but then the round avatar thing doesn't bug me all that much :stuck_out_tongue: she says knowing she has a Stylish stylesheet that makes avatars almost, but not quite, perfect squares

    almost, but not quite, perfect squares

    Almost, but not quite, entirely unlike circles?


  • sockdevs

    Pretty much, yeah ;)
    Basically they're squares, but the corners are rounded. Like the compromise solution I suggested on meta'd.


  • area_deu

    It's more than a minor typo.

    Discourse - for whatever weird reason - distinguishes between posts and replies.
    TCoCDK themselves don't even seem aware of the difference.

    I actually feel like they should be more consequent and just remove "posts" from their application entirely - they seem to only be used in the data shown in the OP data bar and the elevator bar - everywhere else they only use "replies".

    Also, an elevator bar that goes from 0 to n(replies) would make more sense than one that goes from 1 to n(replies) + 1


  • area_deu

    Not to forget, there's also this pluralization issue in the OP data bar:



  • @aliceif said:

    It amounts to an off by one counting error, either on the user's or the software's part. I almost care less about it than a menu covering up other menus. This doesn't really affect anything other than user COD.

    Meh...probably. Maybe. I care less about that than removing actual useful stuff like avatar corners and columns of data.

    I was wrong. The filtering tool also uses "posts".

    Why aren't you guys giving me the pedantry badge for this bug already?



  • I blame @abarker.


  • Winner of the 2016 Presidential Election

    I blame posting it as a bug. Now, if you put it in status thread or somewhere, I'm pretty sure the flags would be easier to attain.



  • @RaceProUK said:

    Well it doesn't bug anyone here as it's overridden back to square in site CSS.



  • This shouldn't even happen if you're doing i18n correctly :<!---->(



  • Is anything in Discourse done correctly? @CodingHorrorBot

    How does it affect Call of Duty? Unless you mean CDO. In which case: For shame sir. For shame.
