Steepster Bug Status Thread
A tasting note I wrote a few days ago is appearing on my tea log but not the page for the tea. I know it was for that tea though, since my rating for the tea is at the top of the page. I also know the tasting note was there the other day.
The tea I noticed this with is 52Teas Mango Pineapple Habanero, if that helps.
Is it this one by any chance? http://steepster.com/tea-sipper/posts/342148
If that’s the right one, it looks like it’s there now. If that’s the case, I’m guessing it was a temporary caching issue. Do you have any idea how long it took before the post was displayed on the tea page?
I dont come in this thread much but reviews disappearing is really not much fun! especially when I use this site to re-buy teas I like….
Do you know why this keeps happening?
I was able to add my local tea room. When I went to edit my listing, it told me I have to be a member for 1 month to do that. I also couldn’t add a photo. I’ve only been a member for a few days.
That’s not a bug. It’s basically a safety feature. We get spam accounts and this is a way of limiting their impact. It happened to me too when I joined years ago. Don’t worry, that month flies by.
I guess what I’m wondering is why I can post something if I can’t edit it? If I can post a tea shop at all, isn’t that an open door for spam, how is the ability to edit it adding anymore to the risk. I’d vote to not let new people like me add a business until the probation period has passed. If I got the address, business hours, website or some other bit of information wrong and didn’t notice it at first, it has to be wrong for the rest of my probation period. It’s not my tea shop BTW.
We have had some bad spammers on here. It is just a safety feature. My month went by quick as I tried to read about everything on here. Hopefully it won’t aggravate you too bad so we can keep ya around here. Great community here.
Thanks mrmopar. It’s not a big deal to me but wanted to share the experience related to adding a listing for a tea room and not being able to edit it, in case that hadn’t happened before. Thanks to both of you for the insight. I’m here to stay.
