Body is invalid; try to be a little more descriptive - despite having changed all the settings I can find

Hey,

On short posts I’m still getting:

Body is invalid; try to be a little more descriptive

But I have set all of the following configuration:

min post length: 1
min first post length: 1
body min entropy: 1
min topic title length: 1
title min entropy: 1

Ah, so the problem is here, in TextSentinel:

  def seems_quiet?
    # We don't allow all upper case content in english
    not((@text =~ /[A-Z]+/) && !(@text =~ /[^[:ascii:]]/) && (@text == @text.upcase))
  end

There isn’t any option to override this at present time.

Sure. Hopefully I’ll have the time in the next week. It’ll be my first ever PR! :slight_smile:


Watching a Category, perhaps the best kind of mailing list mode?

GREAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ADDITION OF THIS SETTING!

Haha. I think I might add an extra knob so that you can allow all capitals
if it’s only one word :slight_smile:

NEAT!

The setting exists and is called allow uppercase posts for anyone that needs it.

NOW I CAN SEE WEATHER REPORTS LIKE THEY ARE MEANT TO BE.

(Assuming that “teletype” is how they are meant to be.)

This is having fatal effects on non-alphabetical languages like “PHP 是最好的语言”
