Has anyone else been having this problem lately? At least half the time I try to post, the forums go Boom and my post is eaten. And it's periodic; for example, I've tried to post something like 5 times in the past 10 minutes but it won't work. But I posted something earlier in the day and it worked just fine, but the day before I couldn't post anything either.

Also, if this post works, I will cry.

[attempt 2]

Your not alone...took me 6 tries and 2 browsers to post something. And replying to a post is just as frustrating. All I can say is.....Egads! Forums go boom!

No way I'm suffering endless Egads again. Time to leave the forums (from a posting point of view) for a few weeks (sorry, Bara ).

The SD folks were all so bereft over the "Lost" finale that they needed extensive counseling. Give it a few days (and some Prozac) and things will be back to normal.

I actually got one of the Egads!-bombs just yesterday. I wouldn't call it "frequent" but it just wouldn't stop and was very distressing. I think I need counsling.

Where's the "the Forums hate me" support group? ;__;

Seems to me like there's some sort of weather going on. I've had long stretches where pretty much every other thing I tried to post went boom a time or three, but I've had no booms at all recently. Some really sluggish processing, but no booms.

Now we see if gremlins are involved and reading the typing in real-time...

Early morning UK time the forum is totally unpostable to.

I usually click on the forum here, then go browse several other sites while the page loads. Despite any cosmetic changes, the site has been slow for the last eight years and will be slow for the next eight years. Just take it for what it is.

Don't forget to habitually select all text then ctl c before clicking 'post reply'

For quite a while now, using the Back command in FireFox worked when I forgot to copy before posting and I mostly use it as my workaround now.

The trick there is knowing to put the tab in the background, ignore it for a while, check recent posts to see if you actually posted even though you got a Boom message, and then try posting again if it looks like your Boom wasn't one of the ones that invites double posts.

ya, sometimes when it goes boom, I just keep pressing refresh, and hope for a double (perhaps a triple post) but now that you can edit and say double post (even triple post and everyone will see it...), at least I won't lose my train of though when I first originally posted the comment

 

lol kinda ironic when I first tried to post this comment, the fourms when boom on me

What makes me wonder, why Neowin forums run so smooth. They are on Stardock servers also. Just they have good forum software and nothing totally 'selfmade'...

Your avatar is too awesome to allow it.

 

Yeah, I've been having this problem as well. I think the only thing to do is ride it out, sadly.
