    Default Trouble posting the first time?

    Anyone else having trouble making a post the first time? Every time I try my browser just comes to a crawl and it never advances. When I hit "submit reply" again, it immediately jumps to a message saying it was a duplicate message and I will be forwarded to my last post.

    Not a huge issue or anything, but I was curious as to whether this is something with my computer or something the site is experiencing?
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    It happens to me as well.

    When that happens your post still goes through. I just click on the VHLinks logo to take me to main page. People get impatient and want to keep clicking submit and I think that is when you run into duoble posts.

    I just downloaded Mozilla to try this post. I am pretty sure it is Explorer causing the problem. Among others.

    Yeah, I'm using Explorer and I have tried Mozilla and it seems to be way faster.

    I always uninstall because I'm such a creature of habit and am just used to IE.

    As per usual I was a little premature. Looks like the issue still exists with Mozilla.When I posted in the politics thread it acted like it would time out,just like it did with Explorer.Funny though,not in this thread.

    This is doing my flamin' head in at the minute! EVERY time I try to make a post, it just whirrs and whirrs and whirrs so that I'm forced to re-open the Links in another window - and lo and behold, my post has appeared!

    It doesn't sound like it's a problem with IE alone (especially as everything else is working fine) - could there be something amiss with the site itself???

    I'm having the same problem, especially with Chrome, it seems...

    This whole site has been very lagged or slow the last few days. Last night when checking in it seemed to be fixed/fast. I'm not sure if anything was changed as far as ads or the server itself.


    Today it's back to being slow. The site comes up..background appears then on the bottom of the screen Chrome says "sending request". It will sit there for a minute or so before the full page loads. Then if you click a link to change the page you just loaded(next page in a thread, main page, click on a thread, make a response etc)...It begins the waiting process all over again.

    I haven't noticed it specifically when making a post. It happens with everything.
    I use Chrome but also have Firefox, IE and Safari on my pc and they all do the same thing.


    No other problems on the web for me so I doubt it's me or the pc. When I view the site on my iPhone it loads fine.

    I only had a problem about 15 minutes or so ago where I got a "page can not be displayed", but otherwise I haven't seen any issues that I recall lately (with IE 9)

    I have only noticed when when Internet or Wifi speed is down. Outside of that, nothing at all
    It is what it is

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said

    Not convinced that internet / wi-fi speed is the problem either - mine is going flat-out as we speak (and, again, all other sites are operating with no problems) but the apparent non-submission of posts issue continues unabated...Like I said before, the little-whirring-circular-waiting-icon just goes on and on but if you open the Links in a new window, the post HAS gone up!

    It's weird. Very Weird...
