Is there a limit on post editing?

A few days ago I posted a long entry with quite a bit of code in it, which was intended to help those users who were interested in automating the process of download, episode renaming, filing in appropriate directories, and adding metadata. In the course of editing the post to make a change to the code blocks in the interest of clarity and safety, the post has disappeared in its entirety.

Is there a limit on the number of times a post can be edited before it goes into turnaround?

    Okay, I understand.

    Most of the innovative parts of the workflow had to do with automating the metadata tagging, which helps one enjoy content on mobile devices. More or less, this is what Plex does. Would the rules permit a resubmission with just those portions of the workflow, or is that still sailing too close to the rocks?

    Hope you have the content you posted saved in a document somewhere. I would love to see your method for properly moving downloaded content to the appropriate location in a Library. I use qbt-nox, but tackling the post-complete processing has been one of the few challenges I haven't mustered the courage to tackle. I'll try to keep an eye out for the new post, but send me a PM or mention me when the thread goes up if it's not too much trouble.

    Filebot can do that instantly and automatically (hands free) - while it renames perfectly for Plex use.

    I run a headless debian server, so I'm going to try a python name parser library first and roll it myself. I see that FileBot can be utilized from CLI, but I'll try to avoid getting OpenJDK involved if I can help it. Thanks for the heads-up though, I'll go down that road if parse-t******-name won't get it done for me (self-censored)!

    Edit: parse-t******-name and an ugly little shell script is working wonders so far. Only put a few files through it, but I think it's going get 95% of my content into the right Plex Library paths. Thanks for your suggestion, @JuiceWSA.

    I have tried to resubmit my script for just the metadata tagging and file pathway fixing - it's apparently "awaiting moderation" to avoid the terms-of-service issue I got a little too close to last time. Appreciate the advice @OttoKerner and @JuiceWSA
