    from what i can tell it only happens on "live" topics. It's a problem for me at work on my pc, on my blackberry, and at home on my pc/ipad/playbook. So I'm guessing this is a forum issue and not a me issue.

    Constantly. And it's been happening for ages. It's so frustrating as you have to open another window while the reply is being posted, otherwise, yes, you can sit there for ages until, finally, the http server error message pops up. The reply you've posted WILL be there - but if you're impatient and keep pressing submit then you do get the double (or triple - or quadruple) posts.

    I did actually get a different message the other day which said that the problem was with the site and not anything to do with me or my system.

    I hope that Brett or one of the admin. folk can do something to resolve the problem as it does seem to be a relatively recent phenomenon...I think it started rearing its ugly head at about the time when the site was inaccessible for a day or so as a result of changes being made to the server..?

    As stated in another thread I ran into delays with the site and downloading Adblock for Chrome and Fire Fox cured it. Not only did it cure it but the site ran much faster without loading all the ads.

    With the stalling on submit replies. I don't know the cure for that but there is a way around it. I've seen it a few times too. When you hit submit reply and it sits there...the delay seems to be the server and your side getting the confirmation and new screen with your new reply posted. Though you don't see the screen and only see it waiting after clicking Submit Reply consider this...the reply was posted when you submitted it... there is just some glitch communicating it to your browser and sometimes it takes so long you get an error message.

    So if you click Submit Reply and it stalls...just click on the links logo on the top left of the site. Your reply was accepted and posted to the site you're just stalling out for some reason. Clicking the logo takes you to the forum homepage and away from the waiting screen. If you then look at the thread you just posted in your response is there despite the stalling issue. Works for Editing and saving a post too.

    So no need to wait and wonder when you see the stalling screen. That's a way to handle it until it's sorted out. Works for me when I see it.

    So the thing that pays the server bill on this site you like, you blocked. Gee that's nice guys. If you're going to do that, here's a clue...don't tell me...I don't want to know.

    Hey if you guys want to send $300 to the hosting company every month, I'll get rid of the ads.

    Something changed a few weeks back...maybe a month ago..and the site would get hung up loading the ads, for me. Others mentioned it too. Some seem to have no problems at all. It's odd.

    It would take a couple minutes or longer to load a page for me. I'm not exaggerating. Then if you clicked a link it would do it all over again.

    Did you change something with the server or change something with the ads several weeks back?

    I had no issues with other sites and nothing changed on my end. I spent time doing malware scans, antivirus scans etc. Checked my router and all that stuff. You said you couldn't fix what you couldn't see and the issue remained for me...and others apparently. It's odd, the site ran fine on my iphone.

    When doing a websearch to investigate the problem that solution came up often. This issue happened on every browser on my pc. The blocker cured it instantly.

    You don't need my ok obviously but a suggestion I'm totally fine with is ...you can delete my posts about this. I mentioned it in two threads in this section. Not hard to find. Was trying to help other members with the issue. I didn't realize you spent $3,600.00 a year on the server and that these suggestions would basically end up costing you money.

    Well, I'm still confustulated!

    There have always been adverts on the site, as far as I'm aware, haven't there..? So, I'm not sure why they'd be causing the problems now when they didn't before...

    Like I said, the issue seemed to arise when that big change was made to the server a few weeks ago and the site was closed down for a day or so...Perhaps the problem can be traced back to that somehow and that might help to rectify the situation..? Just a suggestion as I am more than happy to admit that I am a complete techno-imbecile!

    Meh, Minor inconvenience to me. As long as I can still log in and post, I'm a happy camper.

    Maybe someone with more knowledge and experience with all this can weigh in on it.

    I'm relatively tech savy but not an expert on servers and all that.
    What I believe it has to do with from looking into it is the Ad servers. The actual server the ads are located. Brett could have a great server and the site setup fine so things should run perfect. The problem is the majority of the ads are not hosted on Brett's server. The web page will not load fully until communication with these ad servers is complete. There is an issue with communication with the ad servers or the ad servers themselves are just extremely slow. It's possible it's the same ads that have been used but something changed on their end creating this new issue. maybe something is configured wrong, a bad ad script, link whatever. Not sure.

    Not trying to confuse anyone but that is my guess on it after looking into online etc.

    Why they effect some people some of the time is a mystery to me. I don't know if it has to do with someone's location and ISP(internet service provider ..I have FIOS and it's very fast).

    I'm really not sure. Making a guess that likely has no base on reality maybe there is something problematic with all the cookies and stuff these ads put on our pc's and something was changed on the ad's side of things now making communication with the ads problematic. I cleared all of mine and ran programs to clean the pc of all types of web junk(not that I needed it). It didn't help.

    What is also weird is before finding my work around..some nights the site ran great with all ads up etc. Then the next day back to waiting for several minutes for a page/ad server to load. That goes beyond a minor inconvenience when it takes two minutes to load a page every time you click a link.

    Nothing changed on my pc and the rest of the net was fine but I still cleaned my pc. At first I feared it was a problem with my PC but that doesn't appear to be the case.

    I haven't had an issue with this site since lurking/joining in 07 ish until recently.

    I don't know how it's related to the long response times when making a post but it seemed to begin around the same time. Something is up.
    There must be some reason these issues exist for some and popped up out of the blue recently.

    my guess is if it's the ads, the reason it affects some people and not others is because A: it's not all the ads and B: there are ads that target us specifically, so the ads I'm seeing that target me in my area are fine, while the ads that you see that are targeting you are the ones with the problems?

    Hmmm, well, a great many of the adverts I'm seeing are offering me dates with women of various nationalities so it would appear that their market research department isn't up to speed, just like their server!
