I give up, is anyone else having trouble posting threads?

Anyone else having trouble with the site, posting threads? As you can see I have tried four times to post a thread and each time all I get is a “not found” message when I click on the link. Very strange. Plus I had lots of trouble the other day with the publications page. Hiccups. or burps?

The thread was fine until I went back and edited it, then it was fucked. I tried reposting afresh but as you can see it didnt work. Frustrating as hell

but don’t give up..we await with bated breath. had to check the sp.on bated..(def 1 To lessen the force or intensity of; moderate: “To his dying day he bated his breath a little when he told the story” (George Eliot). See Usage Note at bait1., def 2.. To flap the wings wildly or frantically. ) did i make you smile, frustrated one?

Maybe it has to do with using all the underscores, parenthesis, and exclamation points in the subject header. Could be it’s interpreting that as a html link or something and going all wonky. Try without all the punctuations and what-not.

Yes Erica you made me smile. And yes Jethro it is worth a try. but the original Post worked for a while, so I am not sure. Let’s see.

Recently I’ve begun typing replies in a separate text document in case the posting disappears. There’s also the double posting thing, but ya just delete the copy. There’s been a lot of complaints recently about LS not working properly.

The Rob Galbraith forums became so huge that they eventually had to outsource them, and requested a modest charge. Of course all the forum members went berserk, conveniently forgetting they’d been getting a high quality peer-supported information service for free, for years. I’d still be a total digital ignoramus if it wasn’t for that forum.

There’s a common misunderstanding about that the internet economy is somehow divorced from the real one. It aint. Infrastructure costs money. Somebody, somewhere, is having to pay someone else, somehow, to host this site on a server. And someone, somewhere is probably spending hours tweaking it to keep it working properly.

Bearing in mind LS is essentially run by one bloke, is not supported by adverts and doesn’t seem to be in the business of making any money…c’mon people, lighten up, eh?

True True Sion. The thing is that it runs so well, particularly given (1) its limited personnel (basically one person) and (2) its anarchic nature, or rather its lack of central authoritarian control, that one ends up griping over the little hiccups along the way, because one’s expectations are so high due to the remarkable success of the site.
