Getting error: Too many categories: There are already 500 categories; importing 1 more, would result in more than 500 categories (the upper limit as of now)

    Hi @KajMagnus

    Yet another error in the forum where we're hitting an arbitrary limit with no notice which causes our services to fail.
    This is getting extremely frustrating.

    1. Limits lifted. Should work now

      (There really needs to be a notification to superadmins (currently me) when a site is getting close to such limits, sorry for not having added that yet)

          Yea those notifications would be important. And because they're more important than regular notifications, I would argue you should be able to provide a special email address to receive those kinds of notifications/warnings.
          In the same way you might have a separate billing email (to receive invoices) or a security-update email.

          In any event, getting important notifications like that on a special email would allow us to filter them and react accordingly. Maybe you could have notifications/emails sent for when something reaches 50% of a limit, then again for 90%.

          1. Good points. Maybe both a special email address, and optionally webhook messages as well. — In your forum, I suppose you could up the storage limits to 999...99 for now to work around that.

            I've been thinking that "system" notifications should appear next to one's username, in a light gray circle if it's nothing urgent, and in a black circle if it's something urgent.
