Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

Your message contains too few characters.

I keep getting this message when trying to submit a post with a lot of extensive code blocks. Also, after I click submit, the post disappears. I think the message might actually have too many characters. Is there a limit? What else could be causing this?

It's a character building exercise.

I have no idea what's causing that problem, but for troubleshooting purposes, you could try posting your message with half as many code blocks, to see if the forum accepts it.

If your "shorter" message is accepted, then try to edit it repeatedly, adding more code blocks to it on each edit, until it either exhibits the problem again, or eventually accepts your entire message.

Well I know that there is a limit on the number of quotes, three (3). I also think that there is a limit to the number of links. So it stands to reason that there is a limit on the number of code boxes allowed.

have you typed anything outside of the code boxes?

Yeah.

I just pastebin-ed the code blocks and it went through. You have to appreciate the irony in an erroneous error message.
