The Comment You're Replying To

I am replacing the notion of a contributor account with direct counts of someone's published and unpublished submissions. These will be used to limit how many new submissions someone can submit before the editors review and publish them. Those with no published submissions will be limited to 3 unpublished submissions. Those with one published submission will be limited to 4. Those with 2 to 8 published submissions will be limited to 6. And those with 9 or more published submissions will be limited to 9 unpublished submissions at a time.

One reason for this limitation is to replace the 1MB limitation on daily uploads. I am replacing the upload scripts with a new file manager. An early version is already in the editing links. It isn't complete yet, but it already allows both uploading and deletion of files, and it displays images with data about the images. The current version should be stable, and I will continue working on it under a different file name, so that I don't disrupt anything for users. Anyway, the new file manager works by allowing you to upload no more than 2MB of files for a given submission. Without the 1MB daily restriction, someone could upload a lot by creating multiple submissions, but limiting the number of unprocessed submissions puts a stop to this.

If it turns out that contributors really need more than 2MB per submission, adjustments can be made later.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
