Not sure if this is a Bug or Just bad timing?

This has happened a few times...
When I am replying to a topic and press "Post" the event is Nulled (think thats correct), in that, the page will not execute order.
I watched over 2 minutes and still would not load. Clicking on stop and hitting back button also same.
So what is the error? I worked out at the exact time I first clicked on "Post" a post was being posted.
So the coding for this Forum can not handle simultaneous postings.

There is a bit of a bug somewhere, I don't think anyone has managed to put a finger on it yet, I get the same thing and I've seen another post or two on the same issue. If it's a longish post, I always to a select all and copy so if the post fails I can just paste in the reply box without having to retype it all.

Clicking on preview first helps keep what you've written, as you can go back to it if posting times out. Also if the preview fails then there's a high chance posting won't work either, so for that you back up to a text file.

Yes, I've had previews go wrong as well on occasions, that's why I tend to automatically do a select all & copy. Sometimes I forget and I have been lucky that I can recover what I've typed by a back button in Firefox, but it hasn't always worked  Roll eyes
