    Goodmorning

    My posts don't seem to be getting through (I hope this one does...)

    When I reply to a thread, the site brings me back to the main page with reply unposted. Ayone else had that? How can I fix this?

    Test to see if I can reply here

    Edit: That's weird... Could it be because I'm copy-pasting a text from Word?

    Edit: Ok, nevermind, I fixed it. Something about the equals sign with a space before and after it. Removed that and it worked I don't know how to delete threads, else I would...

      The same thing has been happening to me lately. I have even tried the copy-paste method, and that did not work for me. This is really annoying for me, especially since I cannot let my other players in the Game Room section know.

        Did you check for the equals sign situation?

          Equal sign situation? I have not heard of that before.

            That's apparently one of the main culprits.

            Having an "=" in your post sometimes plays with the board's code... try posting a little at a time, editing as you go.
            Its a pain, but it usually solves the problem.

              More specifically, it seems to be a space after an equals sign. Who knows why... unfortunately, CoyoteCode, which seems to be the primary rolling software on the games forum, adds that extra space twice.

                Thank you both for the help. It will be weird to post things in that manner, but I got to get used to doing it if the forum's programming keeps doing this.

                  I'm keeping a closer eye on the forums for now. Some posts are getting auto-moderation, even though we haven't changed any settings lately. I've heard of the equal sign thing, and can't seem to find any setting that would cause that. I've been a long time forum user, and I've always had a habit of writing in another program and cut and pasting to threads. The third time I lost a huge post in a row is when I started doing that. I'm going to continue investigations behind the scenes.

                      It would be nice if it were a consistent thing... I'll often post a dozen times with one of those rolls and only one will fail. One thing I have noticed (albeit seldom in time) is that the auto-save doesn't run when this bug is about to happen.

                        Just a little test. Couldn't find anything in the settings to cause it, searching the vBulletin help forums didn't turn up anything. We're trying to track down the problem.

                          Try the test with numbers too. I know a number of people who had the problem were trying to track down whether or not it was a specific character.

                          I know that in one instance where it happened to me, I went and posted a line of gibberish that got through and then made my intended post with no problem. (I went back and deleted the gibberish afterwards...)

                          I also heard tell that it`s slightly more frequent when copy pasting a build from Word, Notepad or somesuch although that is not entirely consistent.
