    Why am i only able to post some time?

    I use to be able to post anytime, but now I can only post sometimes.
    I have been trying to post something or comment on something atleast once a week to see if I can post and today I got lucky and was able to do.
    WHY?
    I can not even send a private message.
    If this gets through, this is for dr Andy: I owe you a dinner.
    To Thetyim: Have you changed your phone number in last 3 years?

    I really hope I can get through this time.

    Does anybody else have the same problem?
    Can anybody explain WHY I have this problem?

    Thanks

    Johpam

    I would post more IF I was able to do so.
    Sober? I have been drunk 5 times in the last 17 years but I admit that I have 2 bottles of Leo beer a day.
    The 5 times were: 3 times with sonkraan, I time when I turned 50 and 1 time when my wife gave birth to twins.
    But this still does not explain why I am only be ABLE to post somethimes.

    If you're using IE it could be a browser issue- if you type out a post and get the message 'the post you have entered is too short' you need to click the 'compatibility view' icon (it looks like a torn page) on the top bar.

    Think its just the strict TD vetting process once the mods think you are able to make a sensible contribution to the board,you will be able to make post 24 hours a day.

    WHY?

    So you've been trying to post at least once a week since 2007? Is your care worker around? Stop trying to post using the fridge or the rice cooker. It doesn't work.

    I used to get that and corrected it by the 'compatibility view' icon. it doesn't happen if I use 'Firefox'.

    Sensible? The members that post most generally talk a load of twaddle! Myself included

    Make sure you are logged in first, you will be able to browse the forum but not reply if you aren't.

    It's the only reason I can think of, maybe one of your browsers remembers your log in details and another or different computer doesn't?

    The 'compatibility view' fixed my posting problem too.

    I've been experiencing problems for a long time. I find Chrome works best, and IE the worst, but even with Chrome I occasionally compose a long post only to be informed by TD that the post is too short. I even get messages telling me I am not logged in when I most certainly am.

    Only happens with TD.
    I see fish. They are everywhere. They don't know they are fish.
