    It would be nice to have a 'forum' update as in all the problems with vBullitin software.
    The double posting thingy and my personal biggy, the loss of autosave.
    Yesterday I wrote a long PM and lost the lot. In the great scheme of things that doesnt seem important but time is very precious this weekend and I dont have enough to recreate until Tuesday. So all you waiting for word from me I promise to get to it as soon as I can.

    Not often, but occasionally, I will write something lengthy. When I do, I compose in my Notes app and then copy and paste when I get ready to send it in a PM or post it on the forum. I like to stop and reflect on what I've written, leave it sometimes and go back to it. If you piddle too long composing in the PM format it times out and you can lose it...that's happened to me frequently and usually the second writing ends up being a diluted version of the original.

    That's what just happened to me. I was posting to the weekend event thread and when I tried to submit it, I got an error message saying that "token had expired"...Please re-open the window". Fortunately I copied my post before I re-opened the window. But in my case, the note was short, probably only took a few minutes to write it.

    Thumbs up

    Oh, for the love of whatever! Is this ever going to be fixed? Not just the double posting, which is all the time today, but other glitches as well...

    I am not asking to pass it on, I know Wilson is on top of it.

    I am asking because when it comes down to it the problem is only one which manifests into ripples of problems. But I am only seeing one at the moment. Ocassionally I see 2 others. Just curious what problems others are facing.

    Often, when I try to open a thread, I will get a white screen which says "fatal error". When I reboot my device, I'm then usually able to access the forum. It seems like it's happening more the past couple of weeks.

    When I edit a post and hit "save" it's as if something 'sticks' and the loading bar locks at times. Yesterday, it happened and I exited and when I tried to re enter the forum I could not log on. I tried on another device, different apple ID, still could not access the forum. Tried turning off the wifi and accessing via my cellular.....nope. Tried again after giving it a rest for a bit, then I was able to access the forum.

    Beginning to sound like a broken record here Soon, but you did request feedback on error messages. I got another different one yesterday as I was trying to open a thread. I was booted out of the forum to a white screen which said "503 Service Unavailable "... I've had the "403 Forbidden Error" (post#22) and also the "Fatal Error" (post 37)...

    Just passing this along...assuming someone is listening.

    I've listed everything in my post #39. If he, or a moderator is reading, no PM should be necessary.

    Delete your history from browser and see if that helps when that error comes up.

    Pips. I see you also got the dreaded double post as well. If this was a GotItNow game you would have double marks and a place on the hall of shame, whoops I meant fame.
    I find when I get the database error I just need to back arrow out of that screen and what I have written is saved. As usual I am not explaining this properly. Trying again.....
    ..... Database error screen, use the back arrow, previous screen with either post, thread or edited post, back arrow a second time not worrying that the whatever has taken, then if I am not already there exit to SP forum main page. Go back in to check and the whatever has held every time.
    All these vBulletin problems. I wonder if the physical forum is now not supported? Some reasons spring to mind:-
    PG havent paid their bill (very unlikely)
    SP is finished and it is their way of telling us (also very unlikely).
    Sooni hasnt been as firm with them as he should have (more likely)

    a possible solution. I came across a place where you report problems like this directly back to vBulletin, a cutting out of the middle man so to speak. We should all send our errors direct.

    But this is you assuming the errors are due to vBulletin software.

    Please report errors to PG, sending errors directly is more for those who have purchased the software. So that is somethimg PG will do if needed.
