Allow the summarization for TL4 and higher to create a summary at the end, close the topic and do not bump the listing date.
Recently closed about 20 topics in a forum that had more than 50 replies and no replies in the last month. As a TL4 user I could create the summary, post as a reply at the end of the topic and close the topic. This had the side effect of bumping all of these post to the top of the list. It would have been better if the listing date was not bumped.
Notice Change Timestamp..., that is what I am use to using in such cases. On the OpenAI site the phrase Reset Bump Date leaves me guessing as to what that does and so I did not use it as it might have done something I can’t undo.
Reset Bump Date would be used when a topic is bumped (either through editing the last post or receiving a reply). Resetting the bump date would change the topic’s updated_at back to its prior value and adjust its place in the Latest order back to where it was prior to the recent activity.
Changing a topic’s timestamp wouldn’t be recommended for this.
I’ve tried it before and it’s always worked for me, so it’s odd that it didn’t work on your instance. Perhaps a recent commit broke it. I’ll check on my instance and report here. Can confirm, still works on my instance.
This time I took more time to pay attention to the steps I did. One of the first steps is to decide which reply button to click and I did not consider that as significant the first time so did not record which one I did. This time I did and used the reply to the entire topic, or as some may think of it as replying to the first post.
It worked this time.
Will try again a few more times to make sure this is reproducible and try and figure out why I did not see it work the first time I tried it.
In another test noticed that the icon will change based on the selected action.
So need to see in the upper left after a choice is made.
Used the two different reply buttons and both worked
So for now will take it that the test that failed for me was because the option was not set, which can be checked by looking for the icon.
Don’t want to consider this closed just yet but indicationars are good.
In the OpenAI site another user at TL3 and me at TL4 have been discussing the option Toggle topic bump; seems that as TL4 I have the option and they at TL3 do not have the option.
As a fan of
the entry Reset Topic Bump Date seems to confirm this.
Did about another set of ~30 topics by hand and it worked as expected. One has to have the Toggle topic bump option as noted by @Firepup650 and check that it is set before posting by looking for at the top left of the editor.
Since I forgot that a few times, those topics did get posted to the top of the list and I could find not way to fix that once the reply was made; really do like the admin option to just set any date and time on any post for such a problem but am not an admin for the noted site.
