    Default Why won't my posting post?

    I've tried twice to post something to the Mechanical & Electrical Troubleshooting forum and it hasn't come up. The first time was days ago and the last time was earlier today.

    I'm clicking start new thread and submit new thread when I'm done. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks in advance,
    Scott

    Well, this one worked. Why didn't it work in the other forum?

    I don't know why it didn't work. I think there are some glitches with the forum lately. I always select-all and copy my text to clipboard before submitting the message. That way if it doesn't work, I haven't lost my work.

    When you click "submit new thread" what happens next? Do you get an "Internet Explorer can not display...." error? Does it just send you back ti the forum main page?

    Luckily I did write up my post in word before I posted it, so I didn't lose it. After I click submit, I don't get any error, I think it just sends me back to the forum page. I'm going to try it again.

    Some posts are getting held up by the spam filter. It gets a bit aggressive.
