Error while posting reply

Gary et al,

recently (for a week or so) the forum runs like a (drunken, two legged) dog. Each time I post a reply I get "Error while posting reply". I need to use the Back button on my browser, submit again, and then maybe (just maybe) it takes the post. However the thread list does not reflect that until quite a bit later (several hours).

Can you please look into the site performance again?

Re: Error while posting reply

I always put it down to the fact that these forums are so popular that they just get over busy.

Laura,

I posted over there too (at the third attempt) but I can't give you points because - yep - that doesn't work either.

Re: Error while posting reply

I've been getting the same Error While Posting message too, but my replies are being posted. Still it is so slow and the thread list does not register the posting for a long time.

Re: Error while posting reply

same thing here, although replies work the second time and post soon...I emailed to the webmaster yesterday about this. and Prof Julie - it wouldn't let me assign points to you for a great reply. I hope "they" fix it soon.

Re: Error while posting reply

I haven't had that problem here.
Probably because I am posting in Europe when most of you are still in your Jammies.

However, on other forums I have had similar problems.
So, usually after I compose my reply, I copy it to the clipboard so I don't have to type it again if there is a problem posting.

Re: Error while posting reply

Looks like I spoke too soon.
I did get that after I posted.

"Error while posting reply"

But, it still posted correctly.

Re: Error while posting reply

I put it down to the server changing its IP address all the time. I find that I often need to run "ipconfig /renew" just to make it come up, but that could be this Vista machine of mine... ;)

I meant "ipconfig /flushdns"...

Re: Error while posting reply

spile, this forum here is about iPAQs. Other forums are about other things. I don't know about any other dedicated iPAQ forum.

Re: Error while posting reply

Spile,
I dont think you are fair. On this forum and the other you mention and others I look into now and then it is quite clear that people get help that they never get on official manufacturer support. Searching the older threads is, to use Lauras words, a goldmine of information.

Re: Error while posting reply

This forum is not organized in the same way as other forums, so that can make searching for information somewhat challenging, but I like this forum quite a lot because there are no OFF TOPIC threads to sift through, it is well moderated - so there's no spam and no flaming - and it is populated by people that are really helpful and knowledgeable, some of these people have been here for years and really are Pocket PC experts. I think most of the information and advice a user gets here is pretty solid.

Even though I participate at other Pocket PC forums, I plan to stick with this one as long as it is enjoyable to me and as long as I continue to learn new things about Pocket PCs from it.

Re: Error while posting reply

I have no problem with the content made by the contributors of this site which is 100%.
My issue relates to the mechanics of the forum software.
Sorry Lutz but I don't understand the comment about IPAQs - Of course I know who this forum is for - I'm not sure why you made the statement.
Interestingly enough it appears my comment has been removed by the moderator which means that the replies from others referring to it are now meaningless :-)

Re: Error while posting reply

In many ways , I prefer the format of this forum to any other forum - it is so much easier to look through threads in the order that they have been replied to.
