I think the "timebomb" thing is a bad idea at all. It should *warn* that at some time in the future it won't be available, it can even have a prediction of when that is, but I don't think it makes any sense for a software to have a different API depending on the Date.

I would suggest, however, to replace the Dates for using version numbers, saying that the method is deprecated since version X, and is expected to be removed by version Y, but no automatic disabling of the method.

[ambrus]: No, you're not doing anything wrong. It's just that our automatic spam filters confuse you with the spammers who post advertisments for online shops of counterfeit branded clothing.
[ambrus]: Or unless you left the title field empty or entered a very short title for the node, but then you'd get a message saying that.
[ambrus]: I hope Corion or some other admin is here and can check the logs to see what the problem is.
[mz2255]: I wish I had an online shop but sadly no. The title field definitly wasn't short, had a perl module in the title with 5-6 additional words.
[ambrus]: you can also try to just post again in case it was some intermittent error
[mz2255]: Tried again, denied. Maybe my code is just so bad the site refuses to post it.
