New user, New topic, Minimum char alert contents!


(EW 👌) #1

I was testing my Discourse site as new user.

When I’d tried to create a post with less than 20 char its gave me the following alert:

I think this (:heart:) Heart icon meant to be this (:slight_smile:) Smiley face.

I know its not a big issue but it could be confusing for new users!

Nope, it is meant to be the :heart:, as it is trying to encourage the user to use the :heart: (to like a post) instead of saying things like “I agree”, or “Yes”, or “I like”

:blush: Sorry for that!

But may be adding “instead” before the question mark could be more understandable. Since the user already in writing situation :wink:

Won’t fit in two lines, which is the goal.
