[11:56:03] <FatPhil> Preview story is broken
[11:56:48] <FatPhil> I'm trying to preview my submission (by clicking on [PreviewStory]) and I just get the submission page again with the warning:
[11:56:59] <FatPhil> You must preview once, provide a subject, some text, and a topic before you can submit
[11:57:28] <FatPhil> Ah - there's no default topic
[12:05:51] <Bytram> FatPhil: Can't tell you how many times I've been down that path!
[12:14:53] <FatPhil> /dev/random default?
[12:15:31] <FatPhil> Maybe a red warning saying "you didn't select a topic - we've put it in /dev/random for you", but still proceed as a normal preview?
[12:15:43] <FatPhil> Glad to know I'm not alone
[12:15:50] <chromas> it's like a captcah
[12:16:00] <chromas> s/(a)(h)/\2\1/
[12:16:26] <FatPhil> I normally rely on the IRC bots, I so rarely use the web interface
[12:17:01] <chromas> so it's a reverse-captcha
[12:17:06] <Bytram> IIRC, there actually is something like that posted to the page, but IIRC there was no anchor used to bring that message into view... had to scroll the page to see it.
[12:17:09] <chromas> stop the humans from submitting!
[12:17:26] <Bytram> I will not submit to a bot
[12:17:37] <chromas> Use =contribute then
[12:17:45] <Bytram> (from the Dr. Seuss school of writing)
[12:18:07] <chromas> Will you submit to a cot?
[12:18:26] <chromas> And what about this little dot?
[12:19:16] <Bytram> I won't contribute, to a bot uprising reboot!
