Comment on New User's Discussion awarded for comments from the new user

I have a badge setup using the rule 'Comment on New User's Discussion', with the 'User Newbness' set to two weeks.

  1. New user "johndoe" joins the forums, creates discussion.
  2. Existing user "janedoe" comments the discussion, perhaps is awarded a badge for 'Comment on New User's Discussion'.
  3. "johndoe" comes back and says thanks for the comment, is awarded a badge for 'Comment on New User's Discussion'.

That probably isn't the desired outcome for most people using that rule to create a badge. What most people are probably looking for is something like "Award this badge if a comment is placed on a newbs first discussion, and the discussion wasn't started by the same user". So you can't get the badge by commenting on your own discussion.

    Thanks for trying my addon!

    I thought I fixed this bug already.

    What version are you running?

    EDIT - I fixed a similar bug in the reflex comment rule. Fixed this issue in commit 1f4d2549bc
