I was trying to create a post with the title:

"Sokushi Cheat ga Saikyou Sugite, Isekai no Yatsura ga Marude Aite ni Naranaindesu ga. • My Instant Death Ability Is So Overpowered, No One in This Other World Stands a Chance Against Me! - Episode 1 discussion"

It let me paste this much into the title box:

"Sokushi Cheat ga Saikyou Sugite, Isekai no Yatsura ga Marude Aite ni Naranaindesu ga. • My Instant Death Ability Is So Overpowered, No One in This Other World Stands a Chance Against Me! - Episode 1 d"

Then, when I created the post, a red dialog saying "Error: invalid_post_title" popped up in the lower left of my browser.

I suspected that the pasted title was too long, so I removed some of the text, and sure enough, I was able to create the post.

  1. If it's going to automatically truncate the pasted text, it should truncate the text to an acceptable length.

  2. The error message should be more specific.

Probably obvious to anyone encountering this, and an easy workaround.

Thanks for your attention devs!
