hmmmm... lame.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Hi. New guy on forum, so I apologize if this is the wrong place or if the correction can be found elsewhere. Sounded like the email address was for situations when we couldn't post here.

I am getting the double-post message described above. The system hangs for a moment and tells me I've already posted. The post still shows up in the thread.

In fact, something similar happened when I tried to register on the forums. It told me somebody already had this username. So I tried another name. Then it told me there was a username attached to the email address given. I tried the "Forgot Password" link as the message suggested. No email was sent to me.

I logged in when I noticed "Prophet" was listed as Newest Member. I knew it was not a coincidence, but a glitch.

I am willing to ignore the errors. But I thought you should know, especially since it is affecting registrations.

Actually, now that Prophet mentions it, I had the exact same error sequence when I registered a couple weeks ago. Gave me quite the heart attack because I thought I would have to figure out a new handle! In case it's relevant, I was using the current version of mozilla firefox at the time.

Edit: Aaand I just got the double posting error as well, for good measure :)

The double posting was fixed for a while, now it's back. :(

Yup. Me too, for each of several posts today.

An Error Has Occurred!
You already submitted this post! You might have accidently double clicked, or tried to refresh.
Never mind the speeling errer in the error message.  :D

FWIW, I'm using Firefox 3.6.13, for Mac.

I feed The Pod.

Huh. That previous message was the first one to go through today without giving me the error message. ???

The error seems to come and go for me. Last time I was on the forums, my first post went through fine. The second one gave me the double-post burp.

EDIT: Hooray, I just got it now!

Looks like this issue hasn't been completely squashed yet. It has been doing it to me when I PM or post (not that I have done much of either).

Also when registering I got an error about the CAPTCHA not matching but it appears it went ahead and created my account anyway because after that I got an error about the username and email address and was able to login to the account.

Yup, it still regularly happens to me. I'm kinda treating it as a "feature". ;-)
