What's going on with the forums??? I have tried to post but can't get what it says has benn added to actually show up on my screen.. If anyone can help it would be most appreciated..
did you think about sending an email to the moderator explaining what happened? (with as much info about exactly where it happened as you can remember ... what version of the boards, what urls, what links were clicked on, what browser you are using, etc)
How can I fix a problem if nobody tells me exactly where/when the problem is happening?
I'm right here... I don't bite (unless asked to ).. just tell me what happened!

Sorry mate I am unfamiliar with this board type and i've never seen a link to contact the board mod..
As best I can say all it does is let me log in then I type my message and then it says thanks for contributing and then I check to see if my text has turned up at the bottom of the screen and nothing yet I can post to other threads on this board??????????
As for my system it's a totaly upto date XP Pro sp2 machine with all updates aplied.. I must say thought that it wasn't until after those idiots from that wilf mountain mob lobbed and posted bloody country music shite that it happened...

I need more details... exactly what form were you using to post? Which version of the boards? (please copy/pase the urls if you are not sure!) Where you still logged in after the problem? (if not maybe that might be a clue) - also what links did you click on (in spraci) just before the problem happened?
I have seen posts complaining about a mystery "posting problem" for over a year now but I have not been able to see the problem whenever i test it and their descriptions have been way too vague for me to get even a slight clue about what the actual problem might be. My guess is that some people might be using the boards in a different way than I have thought of myself or following links in some old section of the site that I've long forgotten about (and might need updating) (combined with default IE6 settings causing cookies not to be returned resulting in being logged out unexpectedly - I can't do much about the IE6 problem except to try to pass session ids in urls wherever possible and advise people to check their settings to allow the session cookies)
btw were you using spraci.com or spraci.net? (both are the same site but it might make a difference when there is a link somewhere from one to the other with no session id in it)
Re: Regarding the board types there are actually three versions of it and they are all somewhat unique to spraci. Though the front-end of one of them is based on phpbb, the backend is quite different. All three types share the same backend and use the same data - they just look and behave a bit differently. Each time I put up a new version there were always some people who preferred the old one so I let people have the choice. - Also - there are features that most types of boards do not have that I did not want to lose like real threading (not just a "topic"), thread-from-anything, cross-posting, etc and admin is much more managable being able to look at an admin page showing all new messages on ALL the spraci boards.
