It's been a larger update of the forum software. It has chopped the banners, it's too bright and the layout is not optimal, but I'll try to improve and tweak that during the weekend.

Cleaned up now. Reverted back to email and administrator validation for new registrations. Takes longer time, but keeps out the spammers.

Actually, we can, but the location of the Edit option has moved from just below the post (where it was located along with "Quote") and can now be found to the upper right of your post among the three-

One note: We are not able anymore to edit our own posts. I did a typing mistake and can not correct it.

I've accidentally and reflexively quoted myself several times lately.  Yeah, it's confusing.

!i!

@Trifletraxor I clicked 'Submit Reply', but the text in the box didn't disappear, and no new post was added to the thread. This happened again, and then the text disappeared but the post still didn't appear. I wrote it again, and then it worked. And then the previous posts appeared too: https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/13078-clan-economics-or-bread-and-peas-in-times-of-hero-wars/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-203678

Yeah, this happens when the network is slow, or the response is slow. I sometimes copy my reply, or reopen the thread in a different tab, to see if the reply made it in, otherwise I edit the duplicate post away, as you did.

I haven't otherwise noticed this multi-posting problem since the upgrade.

I've seen it quite a few times, before that.  It seems to have been sporadic, with long(ish) periods where I noticed no multi-posts (and thus I feel the current state is not proof of a "fix"), and periods where multi-posts were relatively frequent (weekly(ish)?).

There's been a long standing bug where, if you have a thread that has 2 pages, and you write your reply while on the first page, your reply will show up on page 2, obviously, but you won't see it (since you're on page 1)... so it looks like your post was sent but lost.

There might be another similar but different bug after the upgrade, though, if there's a problem even for 1-page-long threads, or when posting correctly on the last page.

Haven't encountered this myself. Bandwidth on the forum end should be good enough. It automatically upgrade the hosting to a more expensive plan when they number of active members online reach a new threshold.

hopefulyl you are not paying the freight yourself, good sir—or perhaps you meant more expansive path...?
