Let Regulars fix typoes in Boing article titles


#1

Continuing the discussion from Auto body shop with a massive Man Ray collection in the back room:

I think that either Regulars shouldn’t be presented with the edit title option in categories they can’t post in, or editing the title shouldn’t require posting permission.


#2

I think that we can…
Just don’t touch the category – even though it will say whatever the default category is, it stays “Boing” when you hit save.


#3

Are you sure? I wasn’t, so didn’t risk it. It defaulted to ‘dizzy’ in the dropdown.

It’s an obvious candidate for a UI fix if that’s the case.

Edit. Out of curiosity, I checked an earlier thread with a headline I did change, and it seems it was indeed mysteriously changed to ‘dizzy’. Coincidence?


#4

Good to know. Then the actual recommendation would be to show the boing category properly. It was clearly confusing in this case, and I know I’ve seen a few discussions get moved in the past.


#5

Help us @codinghorror! You’re our only hope.


#6

@sam and @eviltrout are also valid hopes, so that makes @codinghorror one of a handful of hopes.


#7

Which one of them is A New Hope?


#8

Going out on a limb here, but I’d guess the New Hope is @techAPJ.


#9

And which is our last hope?


#10

I’m positive it used to work that way (I’ve actually done it and it worked fine), but I think somehow things have changed and it may no longer consistently stay in the Boing category.


#11

Oh why? Typos only add charm - like the two in the headline above!


#12

Can we also have the power to, uh… ‘correct’ other members posts?


#13


#14

Good point, that is a bug.


#15

Hey! Hey you guys! Hey.


#16


#17

Which one is hope on a rope?
