#3076 closed enhancement (fixed)

Clarify "your account still allows you to do so" notices

Reported by: SergeyBiryukov Owned by: netweb
Milestone: 2.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: General Keywords: has-patch commit

Description

These sentences sound confusing to me, as there is no verb that "to do so" should substitute for:

  • This forum is closed to new content, however your account still allows you to do so.
  • This topic is marked as closed to new replies, however your posting capabilities still allow you to do so.
  • This forum is marked as closed to new topics, however your posting capabilities still allow you to do so.

I've also seen some inaccurate translations because of that. Suggestions:

  • This forum is closed to new content, however your account still allows you to post.
  • This topic is marked as closed to new replies, however your posting capabilities still allow you to reply.
  • This forum is marked as closed to new topics, however your posting capabilities still allow you to create a topic.

Thank you. I've never been very fond of this verbiage, but it also didn't bother me enough to tweak it. Suggestions look better to my eyes.

Replying to SergeyBiryukov:


This forum is closed to new content, however your account still allows you to post.

Thinking this should align more with the other two strings proposed verbiage:

  • This forum is closed to new content, however your posting capabilities still allow you to post.
  • This topic is marked as closed to new replies, however your posting capabilities still allow you to reply.
  • This forum is marked as closed to new topics, however your posting capabilities still allow you to create a topic.

Patch 3076.1.diff updates with the new proposed verbiage and also adds the This forum is closed to new content... template notice to form-reply.php whereas previously there was no notice indicating that the forum was closed to new content as it already does on form-topic.php
