I've just lost half an hour trying to publish an over long post because a message kept telling me to 'try again in a minute.'
It clearly meant that the blog was over the maximum word length. There: it's easy to say that. Why do I get told it (paraphrased) 'couldn't connect with the editor deadline' (didn't even know there was one) and 'try again in a minute' when it wasn't going to be to publish the post in one minute or at anytime?
This use of complicated and indirect language really takes up time. We are all familiar with the most commonly used meanings of words, so why don't we try use words as well as we can to be clear and get across what we mean?
I found the problem (because the system couldn't be arsed to employ words which are just as free to use as the misleading ones that were used) because I posted the blog into another post and tried again. The same insipid error message came up. When I cut the post in two halves (a good idea anyway), there was no problem posting.
I suggest that, instead of talk about deadlines which the user is never introduced to the existence of, the key words 'too long' are used. It gets to the point and saves the user time.
Right now we can all use all the time we can get.
The blog I need help with is dairyofanonnymoose.wordpress.com.
