    Hi all
    A few times now when I've posted a message it has appeared about 10 times, and I've had to delete the duplicates. The last time it happened I had an error message "server error, please try again later", and when I closed that dialogue my message was there but duplicated a dozen times.
    Any idea what's happening, is it something I'm doing wrong?

    Its the interned connection usually or the server where the web page is is currently slow. It has happened to me as well, not here but on another forum.

    I don't think you are doing anything wrong, Rosie. I would blame it on the internet! When it happens do you notice that your internet connection or the forum are a bit slow?

    I have noticed that Angela/Dexter sometimes posts multiple posts and I am sure it's not her doing it. And one other member but I can't remember who... So perhaps it is happening to a few people.

    I think Angela was having props with her iPad though - not sure if that is related? - Perhaps if anyone that has experienced this problem in the last few days could post here, and state what device they were using at the time, we can ask Oz to investigate.

    From what I know it usually happens when the connection is slow, and you push Post reply few times because you are wondering why it isnt posting :)

    Next time (if) it happens I'll try to take a screenshot of the error message and post details here. The connection didn't seem particularly slow, and I didn't click the "post" button more than once. The first time it happened I thought it might have had something to do with me trying to use the "at" symbol to name a forum member, I messed around a bit with that.... but the last two times there wasn't anything like that going on.

    That's a great idea, thanks Rosie :)
