Trouble posting new topic
« on: January 05, 2012, 01:59:31 AM »
I tried to post a new topic in N scale. It didn't appear and when I try to post it again it claims that I am trying to send a duplicate post. Stuck in limbo looking for a way out.

Thanks and Best wishes, Dave

I may have to....
Tried again today to post my topic in N scale from a different computer on a different network, and nothing. I hit the Post button and it goes to a blank page and sits. I changed the thread topic but the post text was the same as yesterday.  I had saved the text in an email and pasted it in. Any (helpful) thoughts on this? It was a really good topic! Honest!

Best wishes, Dave

<EDIT> I just posted a modified version of my new topic in N scale. I must have had some funky combination of characters that was causing problems. I and happy to just consider this a mystery of the universe and don't feel a need for any additional work by the admin folks.

Dave, so changing the topic made it work?  Really?

Tom,

Changing the text in the message field is what worked. I had 5 image links to Photobucket  in the message and for some reason it wouldn't post. I rewrote it with just one link and it went through.

Best wishes, Dave

Some end didn't like the more than 4 images per post issue? Or the size limit with five posts was exceeded? I don't know, Dave. All I can say is it happens once in a while to me, and gets resolved in about the same manner, more or less. I suspect there's something in the way the packets got broken up that was misinterpreted as end of message. Ain't supposed to happen, but it's all digi -----
