Travel Forums System Talk ATTACK OF THE MULTIPLE POSTS!!

1. Posted by IMonaghan (Respected Member 431 posts) 12y


There is something wierd happening when I post, and I think it is happening to others too, because I am seeing many double-posts tonight. In my case a triple post.. I guess I am a little slower than the rest in picking up on things.

Anyway, what happens is after typing up my post, I hit preview, then submit. After I hit submit it brings up a page with a buch of URLs and some HTML code and says ERROR in big letters on top of it.

Naturally I hit the back button and try to salvage my newly typed post and it is still there. It didn't time out or anything... So I try to post it again and get the same error. All the while my message was being posted and I didn't know it.

Just wanted to let you guys know about it.

Yeah, something went seriously wrong.. due to heavy traffic, we managed to fill up our 9 GB of space with logfiles and as a result some pretty erratic stuff was happening. Should all be right now though after clearing a GB or so! Thanks for the note on it Ian, I think the whole server would have been down pretty now had we not stepped in because of that.

Cheers, Peter

p.s. I'll go ahead and clear up those double/triple posts now too

ah that explains it . . .I ended up with 7 messages from one person, and it was the same message each time! Fortunately though I only received one notification in my e-mail inbox . . . .glad it is sorted.


PS Peter, I hope you are managing to enjopy your travels, as well as keeping an eye on us all! ;)

I'm loving the travels, thanks for asking Becky! It's always been the plan to work lots on the site while travelling.. and it's kind of nice to have something that is constant while everything is changing around you! Of course, if I don't appear on the site for a few days, it probably means I'm having even more fun

Cheers, Peter

Hey Peter,

Speaking of multiple posts, I got multiple notifications! It happened on April 25th at around 9:30 PM -6GMT, if that helps. I looked in the forum and there was only one post . .. kind of strange . . .

Well, now you know, anyway . ..

Hey Steph,

It was probably an accidental multiple post thing that happened (I think there was one a few days back), which we promptly deleted all the duplicate copies of :) I think it was more a case of hitting the submit button a few times over than anything else though.

Cheers, Peter

Hi there,

I think you could add a little warning under the "Submit" image - Please press only once :)
