link to list of known issues

Should the list of known issues be to the URL rather than to the post on I could see a reason to go either way.

Completely off topic: I just placed an order for a paid account and saw that my order number is not salted/obscured/etc.; nice for transparency, as I see about how many orders Growstuff has had and I get to celebrate my early adopter coolness. :) And thank you for ensuring that the shop now says "You currently have a paid membership, and can't buy another one at this time" and stops me from overpaying accidentally!

Ooh, quite right, it should just link to -- fixing that now :)

I didn't see any very good reason to obscure the order number. It's no secret how many paid members we have -- in fact we really should have a public stats page with that information on it.

Thanks for supporting Growstuff :)

I am happy to support Growstuff! Who knows, maybe I will even garden someday!

I've worked at places that obscured the order number basically for two reasons: they didn't want other people to be able to guess others' order numbers to use in fraud, and they didn't want anyone to point and laugh at how few orders a young project had gotten (or have buyer's remorse upon realizing how few other buyers were on the same bandwagon). None apply here!

I did notice that looking for a nonexistent orders page, e.g. orders/14000 , gives me a different error message than looking for one I don't have authorization to see, e.g., orders/2 .
