Hi admins :)



I do not know if it was made on purpose, but my new posts are automatically merged into my latest posts, no matter which topics.



I find that very annoying, especially when your previous posts date from an earlier period.

[USER=1587]@fantomas[/USER]: The auto-merging comes with a date, doesn't it? You then have the [B]original post[/B]'s date and the [B]merging date[/B]. This was put in place for people abusing the "bumping" method, whereas 3-4 'bump' posts are merged together. If you're considering the fact that you update a table and want others to SEE you updated it by your new post triggering the 'unread' effect, then that won't work, sadly :P



P.S.: I've checked your link. Let's see if auto-merging triggers 'unread' state of the topic - - can you post something else, real-quick, in that topic?

[QUOTE="fantomas, post: 43209, member: 1587"]Did it... merged again :([/QUOTE]

Yeah, auto-merging does happen if 2 consecutive posts belong to same user. Looks like this is the only scenario where it would be annoying, whereas your recent update stays in the past state of the topic (since you made the last post, therefore your new one is auto-merged, people think no update happened to the topic) :D We'll see how and if we can fix this; would involve conditionals which we can't really apply based on.. what?.. if you say 'time', then what would be the interval to disallow auto-merging? And what if you happen to update the table 2-3 times in a day?

A date is relative - maybe set it up on an hour (like 5min between each posts), instead of on a day/month/year???

Did you use this add-on??

Yeah, well to be honest this auto-merge thing kinda pissed me off. I try to create different post for different user in the same thread and then suddenly my post is merged with my previous post, i need to wait >30min so i can make just one reply in the same thread or wait someone to reply the thread.

And yeah, i do understand and i will be more patient, it's just frustrating that my post is always merged and i need to edit it again so it looks "neat"

Yup, that's the one we use. I'll see if I can adjust the timer so it allows you to sneak unnoticed ;)



P.S.: Restored your post to be able to quote it.

That's been restricted as well to - I think - 1 per day. Because.. abuse.. Sorry, we have to take actions when other fags do these things.

[USER=1174]@Vee_[/USER]: Because those are the options the add-on comes with. And no, I can't use CE to hack it :D

Disabled it; if it's bugged and not doing its timed job, better off without it.
