Can't post threads?

Let's see if this goes through. I can reply to threads, but get a network error when I try to post a new thread, after a very long wiat.

If you can't post new threads, how do you explain this?

You think you have problems. I can't get the multi-quote feature to work.

Apparently smiley's aren't working either

We are pretty sure we know why it's taking a while to make a post. It should just be slower to make a post, not impossible to make a post. We're working on a work around, and will keep you informed on any progress.

This must be related to the Hadron collider.

Can you tell me when exactly this started?

I noticed it on Wednesday night and that's when I noticed this thread and posted my response. I just tried creating a thread right now, and it still doesn't work.

The weird part is that I can reply to existing threads...

I can't reply to threads. (So why am I trying here...?)

Edit to add - Ok, obviously it is working now. But a few minutes ago I couldn't reply to another thread, got a board generated invalid security token error.

Anyone else having sign on issues? I sign into the site and it takes successfully but then redirects me right back to the sign on page - this happens both when initially signing in from the main page or when clicking on "Post reply" - I am only then allowed to post a reply\new thread if I refresh the page in full.

Huh? Can you go into this with some more detail?

I have the same issue from time to time i.e. I complete the sign-in process only to be returned to the sign-in page. I'd not thought of refreshing but usually just sign in a second time when it invariably "takes". I'd thought it was some kind of cookie issue (or maybe to do with the cache my "ISP" uses).

Seems like it's fixed now and I guess it would be kind of unfair to try and blame the site since I am using IE8 beta at the moment (and have been while experiencing sign on issues).

I understand now. Sounds like a cookie issue. Whenever you have problems like that try deleting your cookies.

I'll try deleting cookies but, although I could start a thread here in Feedback (which I deleted), these past few days I've found that I couldn't reply to a post in Music or send a PM from two separate platforms using a total of three different browsers. I received a proxy error at one location and a "cannot connect" or something similar from the other.

Most peculiar. We'll see what happens when I try sending this.

EDIT: Yep. Gone. I wonder what is special about Music/PM. Not tested this anywhere else.
