    It's not a "cache" or "browser" problem as they keep claiming, it's a database issue. Something is not kosher between their install of vBulletin and their SQL database, which is why the search functions are also fubar. It also doesn't help that the release of vBulletin they're running on is well over a year old and they've released two entirely new versions of it already.

Once you pass that little gem of-a-test, next you must compose your message, backwards. So.. "I can't post a thread" would actually look like "daerht a tsop t'nac I". BEFORE you click the holiest of holy "Submit Reply" button, you must first: turn in your chair eight (8) times counterclockwise, and then turn eight (8) time clockwise to equal everything out. (I dunno.. it wouldn't work unless I turned clockwise also) Then, you must make a Dove bird-call sound twice. After all this, you may proceed to the Submit Reply button while making this face: (I found that making this particular face has the most success... YES, I did try others..)


    Good luck, I hope those instructions are clear.
    Do it because you love it, not because you love being seen doing it.

    Exclamation New Threads issue

    Well, I can't say I make that many posts... yuck, yuck, yuck.

    I've had the "new thread" problem for the last 3-4 weeks. 99% of my attempts to start new threads, wind up as a blank page. When I attempt to repost...it tells me I've posted a duplicate thread. Clearing the cache isn't the answer. I've used up to 6 different PCs at my employer's location in attempts to post new threads...with the same NON-result.

    Posting replies to any existing thread has not been an issue...only posting NEW THREADS. My PM to the webteam was not answered... and that irritates me.

    Yes...webteam...I am frustrated. Any progress?

    Same problem here. The Webteam "fixed" the issue last month, but that only lasted a few weeks.

    No reply from the Webteam, which bugs me even more than not being able to start a new thread.

    I'm right in there with NJ.

    Blank screen followed by the 'duplicate thread' message if I attempt to repost.

    Different machines, different browsers, nothing works.

    The problem's clearly on the server side.

    Post Posting to WOF is also broken.

    When trying to post the WOF Report I get stuck on the following webpage and it just sits there:

    http://forums.firehouse.com/newthread.php

    As a result no new WOF Report is posted.
