Aerulan | 1259 comments Did a setting get changed to always show the group rules popup to all members instead of just new ones who haven't posted before?
Because I'm seeing it on every comment box and I'm wondering if it's a deliberate change or a rather obnoxious bug.

Yes, we added that intentionally due to a very large number of posts over the past few weeks/months which ignore the group rules.

It's unfortunate that everyone who posts correctly and doesn't need reminders has to see the popup, but we thought it was necessary.

Aerulan | 1259 comments Fair enough, if it helps then it'll be worth the irritation and I'll get used to it eventually. Thanks Lobstergirl.

And at least with it being deliberate I won't have the hassle of reporting it as a bug over in the feedback group so staff can say they'll "look into it" and then never actually do anything about it.

SamSpayedPI | 2192 comments I think it's a good idea. The only problems are that 1. it pops up on every reply comment, not just on the new threads, and 2. it sometimes (not always) blocks the comment box so it covers the "edit" button.

MJ | 1438 comments Maybe put a note on the bottom of the pop up to say 'we did it on purpose cause people keep getting shit wrong'... Or perhaps the more PC version of that.

Might make people think harder about what they are listing, rather than just flicking off 'that irritating pop up' and carrying on as per normal...?

Justanotherbiblophile | 1813 comments The problem is that it covers content.

And covers links (edit this message), so I can't even edit my prior reply to include information - like I can't seem to make it go away. :P

And when I do the edit box it doesn't pop up, it appears.

(edit, edit, edit)

Try refreshing the webpage (F5 key).

I made a comment which addressed the concerns in #4-5 but it somehow got deleted. I think there was another comment after mine which also got deleted.

I wondered if it could be a sitewide bug.

Justanotherbiblophile | 1813 comments I thought I'd tried refreshing, but not via keyboard shortcuts.

And, the popup isn't showing up on this new comment submission (did someone turn it off?).

Another thought, can you put a link in the pop-up? With the "how to use this site / read this first" link?

Update:
Pop-up showed up for a reply on another person's thread. And it went away with a clickable refresh (I don't have function keys/keyboard shortcuts).

Unfortuately, you can't put quick links in the Group Rules popup.
