Bug: 500+ replies in PM thread breaks it

Hi everyone

Thanks to a bug report by
mobkiller
mobkiller
we have discovered a problem with very very long Private Message threads.

If you have a Private Message thread with over 500 replies, then you and the recipient will be unable to continue replying to that thread.

There is no error message and it just silently fails, which means you may think you have sent a reply but the other person will never have received your reply. You may also notice your reply is never added to the thread and is not showing up in your Sent Mail box.

The recipient may receive an email copy of the reply (if they have this enabled) but when they try to find it in their Private Messages inbox on Inkbunny, it just isn't there (and the link in the email goes to a non-existent broken private message ID).

This bug is fixed in the next site update which should be released in the next few weeks.

In the meantime the solution is to start a new Private Message thread when you reach about 500 replies.

Thanks!

IB

Sometimes you go back and look at code you wrote months or even years ago, and you wonder what the hell you were smoking at the time.

Which is why you should document the hell out of your code.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when, I did a small test, deleted all comments from a program I wrote.  The resulting source code file was 1/4th the size.  I cut down on comments since then.

That doesn't matter though because the compiler ignores whitespace and comments

Real programmers don't document, they remember everything though osmosis.

I know right. Specially since you got better and learned new tricks in those years. You go back and gawk, wondering what the hell were you thinking back then.

I should contact the guys that programmed Shining Force then. Specifically, the guy that decided a level cap routine requires three separate subroutines and three separate stored values...

The first one. Shining Force II had fixed that issue up. It still created confusion and hilarity for my friend and I trying to disassemble the first one, either way.

Hehe, I think Bosky and I ran into this a bunch of times! But that's what happens when you use IB hardcore. I love the site as is but I'm glad you found a way to fix it, congratulations!

Probably people who RP in private messages.

i had that sometimes too but come on ... after 20 or 30 replies ask you if your rp partner may has a messenger
and i dont really think that it is a bug, the creator of this modded booru tought for sure "who would be so crazy and using the PM box as messenger?, i just set it to 500 ... boing" xD

On that note, could we have the before-last item expanded too? (Or, even better, up to and including "my own last message").

Eg. I'm having a conversation with you, I see my first message (for what), collapsed items, and a reply from you that I don't really know what it's a reply to.  I have to expand the entire PM thread just to see the relevant parts.

So I guess the best would be M – (collapsed messages) – M – Y – Y – Y or maybe not even showing the first item (chances are, nobody cares about that later in the thread)

I'm sorry beforehand because this will be the wrong place to post this. I do this only because I can't find the right place to post/ask about thre subject and can't locate info on the subject.

I tried even a google search but couldn't find anything.

When is the sales system coming back online?

That must be one long conversation to go over 500. XD
