    Default Multiple posts?

    For the past few days while posting, if I submit a post...nothing happens for 3-4 minutes (still on the Reply page) then suddenly: there are 2 (and just now 3!) identical posts, numbered different (in the Zeppelin thread in Music only, for instance 41 42 43).

    I try to delete a post, and that option is nowhere to be found while editing, so I end up looking like someone who really enjoys his own typing.

    I did a FAQ search, and nothing.

    HUH?

    Not sure why that would happen, could just be the server getting a little bogged down with requests to the mySQL server. Don't worry about it dude, we know you aren't meaning to do it 3 times.

    Could it be if they submit reply - it doesn't happen right away so they click it again - still doesn't happen right away so they click again - meanwhile the "command" has been sent - just taking its time - but now it's been sent three times?

    chef - cleaned up the extra posts, hope you don't mind.

    Maybe to narrow it down more: is it when you use quick reply or post reply? What type of connection? Dial up, DSL, cable, wireless?

    B.C.: More often than not, it's when quoting someone in response...sadly, we have dial-up, simply can not afford much else.

    I did notice the ads take forever to load, so maybe it indeed is my connection.

    Thank you billy, and you to Brett!

    I have dial up for now, and it has happened to me too....it seems like when I clicked to post my response, it didn't "get the click" and I click again and then get 2 posts.... Tomorrow, by chance, I am hooking up DSL...hopefully it is worth the extra 10 bucks a month!
    I know what you are going thru with dial up chef! Sometimes it sucks, but it is surely easier on the wallet...I am splurging and it took me a long time to convince my wife to graduate to DSL.
    Just go for it!

    I just remembered how I got a duplicate post once before - I typed something, hit submit, realised I wanted to change something, but instead of hitting "edit", clicked "back", made the change, hit submit again and - voila! Duplicate post (and it was all for changing a smiley if I recall correctly!)

    I just did almost the exact same thing...is there a way to delete the extra post(s)?
    Thanks Nick

    A moderator of the forum where the thread is can do it, especially if you point them toward the thread.
