    Everyone double posting

    It seems like everyone is double posting all over the whole site. Is something up? I know a fat finger can make it happen but it seems like every single thread there are multiple double postings happening. It was going on in another forum I visit and they had to make some change and it stopped.

    There's a pretty common glitch here that causes double posts. Been that way since I first joined, it just gets worse from time to time.

    Everyone double posting

    There is a way to avoid it, at least there is when using Tapatalk. When the little loading wheel keeps spinning and nothing is happening, cancel your post and donít save the draft. When you refresh the thread your post will be there.

    ETA: I just did it on this post.

    Generally due to a slow server.

    Last couple of days it has been really bad. Every place has double post but it seemed that every other post it was doubled.

    In my desktop browser there is a simple route to avoid this problem. After submitting a post I may get this prompt: "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved." with choices Leave page or Stay on page. At that point my message has already been posted. If I choose Leave page it apparently resubmits the form data and doubles. Instead I choose Stay on page, then close the tab.

    Riots are like sports, it's better to watch it on TV at home.
