The "auto Welcome" message


The message automatically generated when a new board is made, has a coding bug.

If you attempt to edit the post, you receive this message:

"Sorry, the automatically created message can not be edited - only deleted or replied to."

At this point, the system is at a dead end. The user is not returned to the board, so they have to navigate their way back manually. New board owners or users may not know they need to do that and think the system has frozen on them.

nit-pick: "can not" should be "cannot" in this instance.

Why would anyone try to edit the "Welcome" message? emoticon

Maybe because coders like to just see what happens when you do ___?

Plus, I never discount what a new Runboarder might try to do. emoticon

Re: The "auto Welcome" message


Some new Runboarders delete the automatic welcome message without deleting the thread, which results in an empty topic.

I think anyone who knows how to code would know how to use the back button.
