On boarding bugs 🐛 🕷 🐜

OK I just went through the tutorial.

Two issues:

  1. At the last question creation step, one has to add keywords. But I wasn’t able to. First I tried making up my own and while that didn’t work, some suggestions came up. But I tried adding one of the suggestions and that didn’t work either! Sorry, I didn’t make a note of the exact error message. Semi-fortunately, the post was PSEUDO-accepted anyway and I could continue with the tutorial.

  2. I had actually entered and thru the many steps refined a real question instead of one about a 🐉. Some fraction of other new users are likely to do the same. Wouldn’t it be a shame if all that effort went to waste? Not surprisingly, it wasn’t really saved. (Fortunately I half expected that, plus I know the site is new and so I saved my question and title offline.) Maybe when users submit, save it as a draft and let the user know you’ve done that, when you continue with the sample answer?

  3. The site should work well with password managers during initial sign up. With mine, my username was saved without/instead of my email address and so I couldn’t login smoothly.

PS. Developers should eat their own dog food more?!

Why should this post be closed?

#1 is probably this bug: https://meta.codidact.com/questions/277092 ‭Moshi‭ 28 days ago

Hi, developer here, eating my own dog food... what's that they say about assuming? There's a known bug with tags in the tour, there are other posts here mentioning the same thing. I can't reproduce what you're finding with password managers, mine works fine - which are you using? ‭‮edoCfOtrA‭ 28 days ago

Saving the post as a draft in case the tour-taker wrote a real question is a good idea. Thanks for the suggestion. ‭Monica Cellio‭ 28 days ago
