Can't Reply...

Post by cepris »

Hey,
For some reason, I can't reply to any forum post, only start them. Why is this happening and how can I fix it? Thanks.

Probably because you're doing it wrong. Are you saying you don't see a "post reply" button on any thread, nor the quick reply area?

If you're not seeing all those opportunities joevano showed you, it's most likely that you're not logged in or not logged in correctly. Try logging out (if you arn't already) and then logging back in. If youre still not seeing any of the reply elements I'd say that theres something wrong.

Hi, thanks blast, joevano, Cobra_Fast, and ducktape for your help in the other forum, sorry, I should have written it more clearly, I can write a reply, but when I press Submit, it appears on the thread page, but then after a while it disappears as if by magic

(Topic merged)

It sounds more like your posts are being deleted. Try actually replying here and see what happens.

Also, proven! From a PM to you on Jan 26th:
joevano wrote:Also, do not say thanks to every response... it does not add to the conversation and is implied by them answering (read the rules). I just delete them.
Just an FYI (again), post count does nothing for you. If you comment is off-topic, adds nothing to the conversation, or possibly remarks on an old dead topic it may disappear.

Is that a question? Even I noticed that you say thank you after every one of your questions is answered. If your posts don't add anything important to the topic they will most likely get deleted.

Yeah I used to but I don't anymore, joevano told me not to. I like to say thank you and always get a strong urge to because for some reason I feel sorry for some of the people when I don't say thanks, because they wasted their time one me. Other comments have gotten deleted too. Okay let's just stop on this conversation because it's pointless now :)
