#2402 assigned defect

Improve the clarity of the "somebody took that last ticket" message

Reported by: Besnik Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: low
Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords: needs-patch good-first-bug


This string from CampTix sounds a bit weird to me: It looks like somebody took that last ticket before you, sorry! You try a different ticket. If that was the last one, you don't need to tell her to try a different ticket. Apologize and leave. If we keep it, at least the second sentence needs a better grammatical shape.

@sam suggested that it might be the case of different sets of tickets. Is so, could the string be reworded somehow to better imply that? Or even say that explicitely?

Requested a new string in #community-events. Will then replace it in https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/camptix/tags/1.5.1/camptix.php#L5142

I'd suggest:

"It looks like somebody bought the last ticket(s) before you could complete your purchase. You have not been charged. If you'd like to try to buy a different ticket, please try again."
