Question: Incomplete stories gets discarded, why?
Answer: provided by Blockout 316 days ago
- 0 + I think discarded feature is good and is necessary.., BUT not for incomplete stories... For those I believe there is no real point to discard (include in the database in the first place) -if all the fields for the story is necessary. What about just simply don't allow such to be added to database? I will not under any circumstances allow stories with just the url and 'choice of' category to be accepted anyway... Because then I almost need to create the whole story except for the url and make choose category... (because I want stories with full info). While I don't want incomplete stories as discarded (added to the database at all), there might be stories that is discard because of a detail that possibly I want to publish or stories that is simply 'bad', but atleast have all its fields with 'info' Title, description tags.

To make it short...

->Since I made it as a neccesary to have all the story fields filled with info then I think that it is a neccesary also for the story to be added to database at all...

What I mean with spamming discarded stories then I mean that the discarded stories page, is mostly full of stories with just url and category that I don't believe should be within the database and simply just takes 'place' within admin & database for no reason and,... and some users users (from my experience) make duplicate submissions with just url and category... so the discarded page within admin is full of those type of submissions..

- 0 + "I think you are missing the point. When a user doesn't complete a submission and missises a field, you are suggesting that it would it make more sense to delete all the other information they previously entered and make them start all over again?"

If all the fields is an requirement and if it's stated preferably on the submission page, then yes. but even then some users just submit the url duplicated times. Why, I don't know.., Lazyness and/or ignorance.. perhaps.. Hoping for their submission to go through with just the url... -.-

Question: Category Order bug
Answer: provided by Blockout 326 days ago
- 0 + A 'temporary solution' to have them in order would be to update the admin page after moving each category to the right place... It worked for me..
