... on 'Hi-Fi' and 'Turntable' section. Every post I've made I've had to at least retype it twice. This is so frustrating!

same as. some replies i've made i've typed about 5 times, with word verification everytime, and still nothing appears.
i'll copy this one before posting as it'll probably vanish without trace.
nope, this one worked fine.

Seems strange we're the only two having these problems. Up until a couple of weeks ago [most] my replies were duplicated. From now until the problem is fixed, and to avoid the tedium of retyping, I'll keep my distance.
You're not alone... the "word verification" is a total pain.....can take several attempts, and I loose the paragraphing each time.

Agreed, the need for the word verification is annoying, but the amount of spamming we were encountering on the site was taking up far too much moderation time, and annoying many users.
The duplication thing, however, doesn't seem to be connected - must admit I very rarely encounter it, and when I do it's usually because I've clicked the 'save' button twice.

i'm not sure how hard it would be to implement, but couldn't word verification be linked to post counts? most spammers are posting for the first time, if there was a ten post cut off it would do the job whithout interfering with the rest of us..

Probably, but then experience suggests it's unwise to assume that just because someone has made lots of posts they won't suddenly do something really daft...
Or in some cases predictably daft and rather wearing, yes...
I appreciate the need to protect the integrity of the forum and the genuine posters. Admirable. However, the compromise, it seems, is trying to post a reply and having 2, 3 or even 4 attempts before it's accepted. One reply on 'turntables' last night actually showed my name, but once you've clicked back to check it's nowhere to be seen - this is allowing for a natural time delay also.
The duplication problem is not one I seem to be able to replicate in any reliable manner: I suspect it may be happening at the browser end, rather than at our servers.
In other words, it's not a case of it being accepted or not, but your browser taking a while to show that the post has been made. Hence your similar posts at 11.03pm, 11.08pm and 11.31pm on the same thread.
This is what I meant by 'natural time delay'. Usually that is corrected if I come off line for 20 or 30 secs. then go back into it it is usually fine. What's been happening over the past 3 days is it initially shows 'plastic... @ 11.03. Come out of the forum altogether and re-enter and it disappears, including the post count on that particular thread/subject.
Another small problem - again in 'Hi-Fi' section is posts show just below the title in a pink shaded box, something to the effect of "You cannot enter this forum..." or something to that end. Again it isn't accepted.
PP, do you ever clear all of your old cookies and cache, history, temp files etc?
If not, try posting after you have deleted that lot and see if there is a diffference.

Again, I fear this may be a caching problem at your end.
No, not a phenomenon I seem to be able to replicate, whichever browser I use, and whether I am using an admin account, a user account or looking at the forums without signing in.
Yup, you've pointed last night I posted three times on "which cartridge" yet it only show one post by me. I've just posted another one on the same thread, mainly as a tester, which seems to be alright. These blips have only been consistant since the forum was rejigged.
Also, I've checked my end to make sure I wasn't double clicking to duplicate a post. Then the thought crossed me that maybe the mouse was faulty - that's not been changed. Something's afoot...
No, I am now seeing four almost identical posts by you on that same thread, so I am about to delete three of them. And nothing's 'afoot', exciting though a conspiracy theory might seem: it really does now appear to be a glitch at your end...
