I noticed this new feature recently added to posts. I don’t use it, because I don’t want to have to write an extra teaser text for each post, but I didn’t mind it existing, until I noticed what it was doing. As I would click down filling in my post info, it will autofill this text based on the first sentence in my post body.
Maybe this isn’t problematic for everyone, but it’s been nothing but a pain for me. I’m a comic artist and many of my posts are pages of comics, and so the first lines of my post are almost always my “Read from beginning” link, followed by page number links to go forward and backward. Alternatively, they are sketch prompt posts with patron’s usernames in the first few words, and I don’t want to expose them to the general public if they don’t want to be. This is also bad teaser text.
Currently, I have to fill in my post as normal, and then click into that field and manually delete the text, adding extra work onto every post. If I have to edit the post at any point, it autofills again, and I have to delete it again. I know there is a good chance I’m alone on finding this frustrating: I just wish I could just get an opt out on this feature, or at the very least have the autofill on a button or something. So many small updates recently have been adding extra work for me, it’s really bumming me out.
