Love the new feature.
Me too. I'm terrible to posting 6 things in a row responding to different people on a thread. This makes it look cleaner for me
If you create two posts, it get's
- - - Updated - - -
into one post. :smile:
That was the idea.
I tried editing an automerged post of mine yesterday, but I could only delete the whole thing or cancel. I tried twice (opened a new window, reopened the thread, clicked "edit post"). I haven't had time today, just wondering if others have had this issuu or if my internet/phone was just acting up. Galaxy Note, ICS.
Somewhere around 8-8:10pm P_T on 2012/09/10, this functionality went sideways. Lots of double-posts auto-merged with identical content in both halves.
It could people just double-committing replies (or browser bugs) but I saw it in 4 posts in that period by different authors.
Sidenote: During that period, the "New Posts" page showed all 4 posts but I couldn't navigate to any of the posts for 5-10 minutes. I tried on two different computers, both using IE.
Using Firefox I started getting oddball errors from the 'first 18 hours' thread while other threads continued working.
I was guessing some admin / moderator work going on.

It appears that the doubling is happening. This is the first example I've seen of tripling:
Warranty/Servicing - official Tesla responses (incl GeorgeB) - Page 20
This feature is frustrating as hell (for me, anyway).
I was trying to reply to someone's question (in the OVMS thread), and then announce something new as a new post (which got merged with the completely unrelated reply). I can understand the purpose of the feature, but in such cases it looks incredibly messy, and confusing for the reader.
Is there any way of disabling it for a particular post?
Wait 30 minutes or for someone else to reply?
If you link me to it, I can split the post.
Thanks, Doug. 30 mins will work fine.
