I have never had it happen, but I am aware stuff slips in. What browsers and internet connections are you guys using?

The problem is usually temporary. Until it gets solved, you can PM your post to a moderator and we 'll be happy to post it in behalf of you.

Yesterday Sparky was trying to start a new thread and had that problem. I think that he found that his title was too long.

I have no idea if this applies to anyone else, but I figured I'd mention it.

yes the problem is that there is a character limit for the title that isn't stated and isn't set up to give you proper feedback when you exceed it. I just dumps you to a dead end and when you click back, your entire post that you typed is gone. I always copy the text of my post before I submit, just in case.

...guess this explains everything for this newbie...thanks for that....shorter title worked in preventing blank screen.
Was at a loss as what was going on with the submission of my first post, so had to repost on another forum elsehwhere thinking thise site was not happy with me :rolleyes:

Welcome to AAC. Sorry your first post had to be so stressful.
Not a drama at all mate. Saved the entire text to my first post before I hit the "submit" button :p ...been there before.
Gave the site an hour, still the same blank screen and had a sticky in the "feedback" to see if I wasn't blind :cool:

...I might be an old fart, but knew my screen was blank and my glasses didn't need an upgrade.

Hello,

I have noticed that when the title is to long ( > 20 characters) I get a blank page.
When using the shorter titel I can create the new threads.

Hello,

Probably the posibility to change the title will appear at the 10 posts limit.
Also the posibility to delete posts will appear then.
