*Note to mods. You might want to sticky it, or you might not, or even make a more official thread based on it. ;D*

Guys, if it says "Error loading page" after you post, don't hit "Back" and hit "Post" again, sometimes the post still goes through. Instead, before you hit the "Post" button, highlight the entire message(Ctrl+A), then Copy(Ctrl+C), or even Cut/Paste(Ctrl+X, Ctrl+V), then click "Post".

It will cut back on the number of double posts and other such anomalies.

Voice of a mod:

This post belongs in Board Issues. If one of my comic enabled peers could chuck it my way, I'd appreciate it.

Considering that this board has in the past chewed up many of my messages by randomly going back a page or not submiting my information (page can not be displayed) then completely loosing it when I clicked back, I always compose anything long in Notepad and copy/paste before submitting.

Many times I have clicked the "post" button only once but when I come back later to read the next persons response I see that somehow it posted my response twice.

Everytime this happens it is when I have a very slow connection.
