    I'm not having any problems, what browser are you using? and if relevant, which version?

    I have Firefox

    also which forum theme?

    When posting threads or replies the site seems to lag, then responds with:

    The following error occurred:

    The server did not respond in time. Please try again.



    While it really HAS posted the msg/thread. That's probably why people keep refreshing or posting again -> double posts...

    I believe this has to do with how often Stratics refreshes itself, and has been present since the move to the present forum software . It's not giving sufficient time for posts to be applied before a refresh kicks your would be message into oblivion ....

    Is it proper when a double post does occur (it's happened to me) for the OP to go back and delete the second duplicate post (I have)?

    Yar! I was getting a sporadic error, it would tell me it timed out but the post had gone through. Making me think I had to repost.
    After the first time I started checking. Hasn't happened since yesterday though.

    I sometimes get that error not only by replying, but oftentimes simply after opening a thread. It typically happens at least once every couple of days, or sometimes even multiple times in a single day. Using IE with Animate.

    Sounds like server latency. Urg. Hopefully stuff the host'll handle/balance. If it keeps up, we'll pray to our tech god Shamus Turlough and hope for the best. :)

    It's been happening to me quite frequently today.

    Then I try to refresh or something getting it to move and end up making the same post 3 times.

    I have found and addressed what I believe to be the problem. Please let me know if it gets better now.

    Thanks!

    Thx Shamus
    This one message posted immediately with no doubles.
    The troubles I experienced last night did not manifest.
