    The only difference I see now is you can no longer delete a post. Tools only allows edit and report

    Test # 1


    I tried to use edit and erase this. When I clicked on Save Changes, I got an error flag, and it didn't work. You can erase everything but one letter, but you can't "save Changes" with a blank page.

    Yes, this was an intentional change I've been meaning to make for a while after finding evidence of a couple users going back and deleting hundreds of their posts. This interrupts the flow of conversations making threads harder to follow, and erases evidence of their past bad behavior, falsehoods spread, old bets made, etc. I also put a 24 hour limit on editing posts for the same reason.

    Most of you guys were using it responsibly, but a few rotten apples spoiled it for everyone.

    Server guy allocated more memory to some of the php variables and enabled a better error logging mechanism for this site.

    Please continue to update this thread if you are experiencing problems.

    I also use a PC (Dell) in addition to the Ipad for this site. I haven't noticed any issues with either one...although I only upload photos from the ipad.

    No, still get the error flag when I try, and it also logs me out....I have to leave and come back. I have tried different things, all get the same result. Somehow, I think it might have something to do with my log in data.

    I changed my pass word, but that didn't help either. I can upload to other sites just fine, so I don't think it's my laptop.

    I do everything on my iPad. Not sure if that's significant?

    Was trying to type in a pm reply and kept getting this message repeatedly. Could only get a word or two typed and message would pop up. I noticed I could keep typing in the background, but couldn't see the text. Also upon canceling the message, I couldn't reinsert cursor, to start typing again. Gave up on reply.

    I got the same error (post #56)....but only when trying to edit a post. The next time it worked ok. I thing there are a few bugs that might need to be ironed out.
