Jeffing to a new thread breaks quote unrolling



  • https://what.thedailywtf.com/t/zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz-oh-sorry-i-fell-asleep-on-my-keyboard/49945

    Quotes are implemented via a topic id/post-in-topic id pair, so Jeffing the whole conversation makes the links point to the OT - which either crashes quote unrolling, or unrolls the post in the OT which happens to now be in the same place.

    Urk. Would it hurt to have unique post IDs? Oh wait, they do. Then why do they use a mutable value as a link?

    I believe this has been noticed before, but probably never reported. Hmm …

    Looks like it's already reported on meta.d:

    Over a year ago.

    And it's still broken.

  • The indexes are still stale....



  • I fully expect to have rounded corners on the quote boxes before this is fixed.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    Most likely a nice pastel shade of black, like all UI elements.
