    That's not always true, though, particularly if you're posting large amounts of material (e.g. fic chapters). I don't think it's reasonable to just expect everyone to wait 10 minutes in all circumstances.
    No, because in 95% of the circumstances they shouldn't be waiting 10min to double post. The 5% remaining can do so if they need to.

    Well, it seemed to be working just fine before....

    Ah, yes, the usual "inconvinience everyone else because of a few idiots" approach.

    And, it's really not that simple if, for example, you're posting a bunch of fic chapters. I suspect it won't affect DP, though, because he can probably just bypass it if he gets irritated by it....

    Kind of the opposite: Inconvenience the few that need to doublepost while the rest can just the merge happen. It's better for most.

    Who posts multiple chapters in a row, anyways?

    You seem to be opposing on principle with little-to-no valid arguments for said opposition. Given that, I suppose there's no point in further argument. I'm out.

    I don't recall seeing that much double-posting, and the mods can always deal with it if it's persistant.

    Kind of the opposite: Inconvenience the few that need to doublepost while the rest can just let their posts get merged automatically.
    What happens if the combined post is too long, though?

    That is a serious potential problem, although it is admittedly less of one given the post length limits on the forum.

    I've seen it before.

    Presumably it's able to force-merge them anyway, though admittedly, I don't know.

    Timestamps are updated to the second post (or consecutive) posts.

    Pretty sure it will, since it is updating the timestamp.

    Hmm, that probably should be tested, before someone gets hit by it....

    Does it apply to all posts (including in blogs), or only to forum posts?

    Timestamps are updated to the second post (or consecutive) posts.
    Ah, OK.

    So, it basically allows you to bump via double-posting, without producing multiple posts.

    That is actually quite useful, particularly since it will automatically take into account whether another post was made....

    The RSS feed icons are a bit illegible with the white on orange look, imo at least.

    I don't know. Blogs are technically a separate module from the forum, but that doesn't necessarily mean it won't apply.

    Got a better one? I could easily replace the image no problem.

    Well, IIRC the limit on blogs is lower, so the issue of hitting the post length limit when the posts are combined could plausibly hit people there (although I guess we've already managed to bump the limit up somewhat with our last argument...).

    You really should test it, because if it truncates the post it would be really annoying, given how much effort goes into writing a post that long.

    I doubt it'd truncate it. It'd probably just do the old system like it did before - "Your post was too long. Say it in less characters, you dumbass."

    The difference is that, before, you could just get around that by double-posting. Now you can't, which is bad. It's no problem for you, because you just increase the limit, but I can't do that, so I end up not being able to express my opinion properly.

    Again, I'm pretty sure that in that case it would override the limit and merge the two posts after-the-fact.

    But you should really still try to say it in as few words as possible. Backing up the post table is one of the longest things in our backup system (nearly a minute and a half is spent on this alone when most other tables are literally done in hundredths of a second) because of the fact I've allowed such gratuitous post limits.

    Well, that's what I'd hope, but if it's not, then it'd be a real pain in some circumstances.

    But you should really still try to say it in as few words as possible.

    Well, you weren't exactly any better.

    And, sorry, but I simply can't do that, even more so when a) I'm angry and b) the "fewer words" would consist of things like "asshole", which would get me banned. It's much easier to avoid being verbose when you're not going to get in trouble for expressing your true opinion....

    Part of this was quoting your posts in kind, though.

    Then do try to learn how to do it. Getting across what you want in fewer words is superior communication, after all. The guy who can argue what he wants in 100 words versus the guy who needs a thousand could theoretically argue ten times quicker.

    As for the swearing? That's totally your self control (or lack of it, as the case may be if you wind up doing it). It tends to make you lose arguments, too, since you then look childish.

    Then do try to learn how to do it. Getting across what you want in fewer words is superior communication, after all. The guy who can argue what he wants in 100 words versus the guy who needs a thousand could theoretically argue ten times quicker.
    I'm very poor at it, though.

    As for the swearing? That's totally your self control (or lack of it, as the case may be if you wind up doing it). It tends to make you lose arguments, too, since you then look childish.
    Not really, it's just easier to be concise when I don't have to pussyfoot around what I really want to say.
