Re-send invitations to the same user

    Hi @KajMagnus, I had this case that a user discarded his invitation by mistake and asked me to send a new one. I tried to send a new invitation but Talkyard refuses to send another e-mail. I see the progress wheel flashing for a second and then nothing happens. When I check the log I see {"message":"API request result exception [EsE4K2J2]: Status 403: 403 Forbidden\nYou have invited him or her already [_EsE403IAAC0_], site SiteBrief(1,uzwt435xvo,,Active), ip /-/send-invite","severity":"DEBUG"}

    It would be nice to remedy this issue. Allowing to send another invitation to a already invited e-mail would do trick but in addition, ability to expire invitations automatically or manually would also be useful.

    Thank you!

    1. Ok yes these sounds like good things to fix, I'll set this to Planned and move ... to the Bugs category — feels like a bug? that one cannot re-send an invitation, in cases like this. Thanks for reporting

      4. Starting with this now ... (and I'll add basic support for bulk inviting people too, at the same time. Maybe initially by just copy-pasting a list of emails into a textarea.)

        1. Hi @melanopsis now you should be able to re-send invitations to the same user, ... and to many people at once, too: the formerly one-line input field, is now a many-lines textarea and you can type one address per line (up to 20 at a time, now for a start, and at most 120 per week).

          If you send an invitation to someone who has already been invited, the server will tell you s/he has already been invited, and then you can click a "Send invitation again" button (or, alternatively, "Cancel").

          (Your server ought to have auto-upgraded itself this Sunday-Monday night.)
