    A game forum that regularly doesn't work for no explicable reason pretty much makes me want to retire for another year.
    ...and it's not just me. I never, ever had a problem on the old ATT forums, but I'm pretty fed up with this.

    I've run into it a handful of times. Things I've found tend to work eventually:
    • Posting parts of the post until one fails. For some reason, the points summary seems to be where it usually fails on my side.
    • Pasting the text into Notepad or a similar non-WYSIWYG editor, then copying and pasting it back

      Not a problem I've run into here, so I would make a guess that you are trying to use an unsupported html code, or a conflicting or unfinished code. Try writing it in Word first, then copy & paste it, see if that helps (it sometimes helps when you are using to numerous html codes, since it can be a little finicky). At the very least it will stop you from losing what you've typed. Sorry I couldn't be of more use on this one.

        I've had this problem a couple times. I'm fairly certain in my cases it has something to do with how I use the equals sign.

          YES. For some reason, every now and then the site decides you can't have a space after the equal sign. Not always, but if I get the Home page bug, I go back and remove the space after the equal sign on the totals line and that usually fixes it.

          And I can't emphasize sometimes enough. I have literally copy/pasted a character from Roll Call to the Game Room, and it failed until I removed the space after the equal sign in the Game Room.

            as in (for html code) color="color" ?
            ...that's the only equal sign I have, but I don't have any spaces after it.

            Right now, the only html I'm trying to use is color code. I managed to post by replying to thread with nothing but spaces and the word "test." Then, I edited my thread. It accepted my title (which had the first bit of HTML) so I saved that, and the first paragraph (nothing but text). Future attempts to edit, even just to remove the extra "test, test" failed. So... not even adding new words or code, just deleting words... failed.

            The only new code I'm trying to add is another color (for colored text).

            I've done a thorough system sanitize as well, Avast and Spybot system cleans, cookie deletion, reboot.

            ...definitely a bug on the Ronin Army thread.
            ...and I got a PM from the GM indicating he can't post either, so "yay."

            Bring me your kittens.

              I've had it do it to me every once in a while. Even on some post with NO BB codes or HTML in them at all. It's almost like something in the text throws a flag with the security software on teh forum thinking I'm trying to do an XSS or injection attack on the forum. equal signs do seem to be one of the culprits, which makes posting character sheets a pain at times.

                Please don't punch kittens. They are soft and cute and are quite willing to be petted to help sooth your anger. Really. No punching needed.

                  For me, it's seemed more like a plaintext equals sign issue. Like I'll occasionally post the point summary for the character and it will choke on that. That said, I only have some small amount of experiential data, so that's more or less conjecture.

                    I was able to make "some" edits to the post in question, and yet, not others. No rhyme or reason whatsoever. Subsequent posts in the thread seem to be just fine.

                      I haven't been able to post on a thread in the Game Room all day. I use the simplest interface, there was no BB code or HTML, just text. Incredibly frustrating.

                      I tried logging off and on again, closed out of my browser...nothing.

                      Edit: I was able to get it to post by just re-typing everything in a new post. Not sure what was going on there.

                        Knocking on wood... or pummeling it mercilessly with a sledgehammer, more accurately...

                        I haven't had a problem since a day or three after my original post. I did give up trying to edit the post in question though.

                          I oddly have only had this problem twice, but both times it lasted more or less 24 hours, and only for a single post. It would NOT allow me to add one final paragraph to my Iron Man build. I got 1-2 Homepage Errors immediately, and went back and started cut & pasting it in smaller chunks. I could even add pictures this way. But adding that one final paragraph? NO WAY.

                          There's just something weird about this forum.
