    posts not going through

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Joey Batz, Feb 28, 2012.

    Now my computer is working poorly, but I've never had this problem with the site.

    I'm trying to post some advice on the Character Development section, when it suddenly won't let any of my posts go through. I've been able to post one half of my comment by cutting it in half, but the second half won't go through. It keeps leading me to a bank page, and the URL says "newreply.php?do=postreplya&t=49769" after the website name. Am I the only one having this problem? My computer is on the fritz and running slow as hell, but there is no reason I should be having this problem, so I'm curious if it's the site. I've never had such a problem with any website before, no matter how bad my computer ran.

    This is the thread in question: http://www.writingforums.org/showthread.php?t=49769&page=2&p=882594&posted=1#post882594

    By the way, I think it's the site. I restarted my computer so that it's running perfectly fine now, and I STILL can't post.

    I have never had this problem on this forum (granted I've only been using it since Saturday) or on any other forums.

    Restarting your computer doesn't really do much beyond shutting down any currently running programs - and then if you have anything in auto start, such as vrisus, those will just start again anyway.

    Do you know how to delete your temporary internet files? I would try that. Also, which browser are you using? I would highliy suggest trying it in another browser, especially if you are using internet explorer. This is a good way to confirm/deny if it's the website.

    My fiance is an IT specialist and I trained under the same job for a while too, so we have experience in these kinds of bumps. Good luck!

    I'm using Firefox. The disease that is known as Internet Explorer doesn't even work on my computer. I don't know how to delete my temporary Internet files. It should be noted that it is only that thread with that post that won't go through. As far as I know, I'm not having problems anywhere else on the site. I created this thread with no problem, after all.

    I have to cut my remaining posts in half in order to post them at all, so if I ever want to reply on this thread, it seems like I have to spread it out across four or five posts. Each one of them is shorter than a Youtube comment! And the "Reply to Thread" button barely works. Everything else on this computer works perfectly fine except this site! Hell, the only part of this site that's been giving me trouble is that one thread!

    Actually, is there a word count limit on the posts of some threads? Because it seems that, in that specific thread, any post that's less than a hundred words goes through perfectly fine. Of course, then I can't actually SAY anything, so there's no point in posting at all.
