Single-letter forum posts issue

#1 Post by webfork » Sat Mar 14, 2020 10:48 am

Quick update about recent forum events ...

---

One of our more prolific authors has modified almost all of their posts to be single characters (h, f, r, t, etc.). We're looking into a way to remediate by restoring either the basic information (i.e. program name and website) in those posts or some method to clear them.

While there's a lot of positive work by good people to share excellent free software, it's also easy to spend hours, days, or weeks on something and take it personally when it doesn't go to plan. Recent news also means we're all collectively under more stress even just a few weeks ago. As this is a site made up of volunteers, please contact the admin if you have a concern.

Are you asking for suggestions on how to do it or is this an announcement?
I do NOT have other accounts.

It's just an announcement -- I'm working with Andrew on some possibilities.

My question: Are you trying to restore the content of some forum posts that are no longer visible?
Such as: viewtopic.php?t=24936

I have archived some of theses posts.

Here is a sample:

Thanks for the suggestion and offer to help. I have a longer response to this in the works, but for the moment, if you could just post any *factual* data to those threads i.e. website and portability status, that would be great. It would at least give some starting point for people who come across those posts.
