I'm surprised tye didn't mention it, but, it's been our long-standing philosophy (note - philosophy, not policy) that making new posts "too invisible" to the poster is generally not a good thing, and that the problem is worse for users of lower experience level, with it being particularly noxious for AM. The reasoning (based on experience) is that if the user can't see the post she just submitted, she'll post it again. And again. And again. We don't need that.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

[Corion]: Meh. Once again I find that SQLite doesn't support window functions and I want to use those nowadays :-)
[erix]: Look what I found! :P
[Corion]: Hmm - actually, I don't need them, even though they'd be nice. I just want the (say) 10 latest images, and that's easily done with a limit 10 offset 0 clause, as I don't need all top 10 images for all users.
[Corion]: erix: Sure, but this is for a really-lightweight application and I'm replacing a CSV file / JSON file for user configuration with SQLite (and optionally, Pg) :)
