 Is it Brotherhood Without Banners Day, perhaps?  After all, we've already had Kraken day in honor of the Greyjoys...

Oh yeah! It seems now I can... But for some reason I'm not able to if I start it with a free emoticon.

Ok this isn't an issue, but I thought it was funny. I posted a comment in the book adaptation thread, it contained a link and two smileys and it was marked as SPAM. Luckily, I could approve it myself. Lmao.

Ok, this has been happening enough times, randomly as far as I can see, so I'm gonna post it here cause it's beginning to annoy me and I don't know how to solve it.

I would write a reply or quote, click sumbit post, and then it would disappear and tell me "invalid key, please post again" or just go back to the top of the page as if nothing had happened. It started happening around 2/3 days ago.

To make things worse, one of the posts where that happened and after the umpteenth attempt I managed to make it stick for a couple of days has today lost all its text content, with just the emoticon remaining.

I don't understand, and it is so frustrating...

Ok, I found the problem.

Cary, as we are the ones who usually spend more time here than DNA, we're going to have to read the threads with extra care, as some comments have started to be marked as spam (this usually appears right above the user's avatar). I think it has something to do with using smileys that are external to this site. I do that, and so does Tir, and so far I think we've been the only ones having some of our comments marked as spam. We can approve those posts using the "More" button.

Tir - "just go back to the top of the page as if nothing had happened. It started happening around 2/3 days ago." The same thing happened to me (see my comment re: spam that i've made a few days ago). I think it has to do with that site we get our other smileys from. Curiously, this has never happened until a few days ago. If it happens to comments where you haven't used any emoticon whatsoever, please let me know. If the page goes up, then it means your comment was sent. If it doesn't show it means it may have been caught in the spam filter, but it's visible for us, so one of the mods/admin will approve it.

Thank you macha, I was going mental there. Didn't know what the heck was going on!

What about the one whose text dissapeared after 2 days and only the emoticon remained? Any ideas what could be causing that? It was one I posted 2 days ago in the community photo album thread.

Tir - this one?
"ETA: OK, this is weird. This is same post I had troubling posting that time, and now the entire text has disappeared!"

I have no idea what may be causing this. I opened your comment and everything seemed ok, there was no trace of any text before the blushing smiley. For now, I can only suggest that you use the preview button before posting, and see if everything is as it should be.

Yeah, it was there, the smiley was part of it. And it was working for two days, and looked fine, but today it disappeared.

Tir I don't know what is going on, but it seems set off a spam warning when you posted 3 or 4 posts with just smiley faces. I deleted those.

My messages are not getting through to me. I send them out, responses alert me, but when I get to my message box, it's all old messages, nothing new. What am I doing wrong?

 I didn't post just smiley faces, there was text too, but it wouldn't come up, so I kept trying and it kept telling me off. Don't know why. Then the text posted, but two days later the text got deleted.

 The problem is when you don't upload the photos yourself. In that case you would be able to remove them. The easy answer, ask the person who uploaded them to edit their post and remove them. The other easy answer, is, given that you own the photos in the first place, and it was pretty obvious, ask a moderator to remove them for you.  :)

Rygar mentioned he's got problems accessing the full site on his mobile today.
Rygar, I have the full site already bookmarked so I haven't switched to the mobile version in a while now. If you edit the address and type only wicgeeks.com, do you get redirected to the mobile version automatically?
Keep trying, mine works, but there might be a few glitches with the site.

Maybe it's his phone? When mine starts acting up, I pull out the battery for a minute and let everything reboot. Usually fixes all sorts of issues.

Hey DNA, nothing major but BAS did say I should prob let you know. Last night many of the topics were marked as read, yet when I went in there, a lot of them had new comments.
Also I can't seem to change my signature.

Nevermind the signature problem, DNA, it's all sorted, it was caused by the maximum number of characters.

Ok I think I found the issue. I cant type in "Visual" so I switch to "HTML". I used to be able to send PMs in HTMLbut now I cant. I just typed one in HTML and the switched to visual and it went through.

So there is a definite issue w mobile and HTML

Yeah I can't type in Visual either, but I think that's out of your hands. Never occurred to me to type in HTML before.

It might be a mobile browser thing. I tested it on all my mobile devices Safari browsers. On iphone 3gs and ipad mini and no problems. I did email customer service and see if they have any solutions.

Don, I can't do HTML PMs or posts on my tablet or Samsung mobile either, so the forum is nearly unusable if I'm not at a computer, unless I only want to chat.  My tablet and mobile both use Android and my browser for both is Firefox.  I don't know if that might be relevant.  Anything information from tech support would be most helpful.

Maybe it's just me riding the straight-talk express. but the answer to Ry's question is crystal clear. Oh, well. The Word is there for those with ears that hear. Occam's Razor and all that.
