This bug report was brought on by this question: Help identifying a motor and how to control it with an Arduino. Here is its timeline. The summary is that a new user attempted to post a question with some images.
This, of course, is not allowed due to previous problems with the posting of...er...unsavory content by new users. The New User Restrictions state that new users cannot:
- post images
- post more than two hyperlinks at a time, either in a post or their user profile
- contribute answers to protected questions
- ask or answer questions too rapidly
This all makes sense. In an attempt to work around this problem, the user uploaded some images to the web and posted two hyperlinks to allow viewers to open those images. This is a very normal response for a new user.
Unfortunately, the user neglected to use the "shift" key throughout the entirety of the post. This is also a very normal response. I attempted to correct the illegible question and unprofessional post by inserting the images in Revision 2 and posting a comment requesting that proper capitalization be used.
Less than an hour later, the user responded by editing the post and making the desired corrections. Fantastic, right? We've now got images inserted by a 10k mod (so those should be fine) and some changes to the text of the question by the OP. Everything is working as desired - until this showed up:
The new user didn't post an image. They didn't touch the lines in which the image uploading code was posted. New users should be allowed to respond to feedback on their post by editing the question, even if additional hyperlinks or images have been inserted by other users.
The check for whether or not the new user has violated the new user restriction should exclude text added by users who are past the new user restrictions.
