Any chance of looking into letting members and regulars quote from locked threads?
With Discourse limiting big threads and the advent of several big series over here, mostly XoR and the Infinity series for now, but I doubt it’s going to stay limited to just those in the future, not being able to qoute from the old threads is becoming more and more of an annoyance at times.
@Havenstone does it all the time too, but you have that fancy “Leader” status that also allows you to close threads in the first place, which is presumably what allows you to quote from them too.
I can’t seem to quote from them on the other hand.
@Eiwynn Test, test,test
Wait, what It worked. I swear I wasn’t able to do this a couple of weeks ago. Okay problem solved for now it seems. If this was your doing @RETowers then thanks!
Can you change it to anything other than #general? (I’m not heavily surprised by it, and if you can change to other things, I’m pretty sure I know what the problem is, and I can’t/won’t fix it because it’d break something else I like.)
Yea, so #general topics are the ones most likely to get spammed by bots, or for people to post exceedingly off topic posts (i.e. things that don’t even belong in #off-topic), so new general topics have to be approved. Apparently that also locks threads out of being made #general threads with a very vague error message.
