This is ridiculous. We can't use the pound sign in posts. But of course, they haven't blocked this one: $

I'm getting a "Not Acceptable" error when trying to post in Gen SF/F right now. Post is just a URL and quote of an awards shortlist, it's saying it can't find an appropriate representation of posting.php.

There's an extended ascii character somewhere. Probably looks like a quote or a dash, or it may be a letter with a diacritical mark.
Yay. I've been having consistent problem with this...
I was able to track down the culprit, today: “
Errm, maybe convention says I should say "“"

LOL Do you know, I never knew before now what ascii stood for.

It never occurred to me that it did stand for something.

(Which is pretty odd, because I'm well aware of the fact that everything stands for something in computers, like hypertext transfer protocol, etc.) Laughing

(Speaking of which, I see discussions that http2 is probably going to become the default standard.)

[EDIT:That post just got refused because I quoted WF's post. As soon as I took out the code for the pound sign, it worked...]

You can subvert post rejection by using &#nnn; (including the semi-colon) in your post, if you look up the Extended ASCII code to use for nnn. However, it's not preserved in the database that way (like using [b]bold[/b] is preserved) so when you quote it, it's turned back into an offensive character. [ASCII Codes]

Hacking is fun, ¥º.

Well, as things go, this worked out as an awesome pre-emptive warning for me.
I just thought I was going to have to pore through a longish post I wrote in Dor. Corishev and try to figure out where and how I could possibly have slipped in a non-ascii character. (there was nothing I'd copy-pasted from an outside website this time!)

Saw this comment, and immediately looked at Cord Hurn's post I was quoting.
It contained the dreaded left-quote. and the dreaded right-quote as well, I think.

If you paste whatever you were going to post into notepad or something, then copy it out of there and paste it back in here, it should strip out any stuff like that.

(Good one btw WF)

^ ok...posting from the quick reply box got the post above rejected. No quote, no funny characters.

Then I clicked back, clicked the "Reply" button, and posted it from that screen, upon which it worked.

(Oh the notepad thing will only work for straight quotes and stuff like that.)

Technology: it's here to help us. Sad

We'd better figure out what we're doing with the Watch soon, before our software is made altogether redundant. Sad

Not really in danger of that (much). The net has to build in a lot of backwards compatibility.

The strain might increase though. (We are working on it btw.) (Slowly.) Wink

There's no danger of existing posts with unacceptable characters being retroactively rejected, right? That would be bad.

No danger. It would have happened if it was going to. Very Happy

Good post WF. I have stickied it for convenience. Very Happy

(Damn...when I edit it to make it a sticky, it gets rejected. Very Happy)
