Cannot post to this site
« on: July 17, 2023, 03:26:50 pm »

I get a "Data Base" error when I tried to post several times yesterday  and today. I used COPY and PASTE trying to post an inquiry I made on several other sites. Any suggestions?

Lately, I've been hit with the same type of errors. So far, I've traced the issue to some unsupported characters but you may not have the exact same errors. I tried to contact customer service/administrators via PM but couldn't send the message (same error). Finally, I sent them a mail message but haven't heard anything.

Email notifications from posts made (updates) have died in the last day or so too.

The forum software seems to be melting down with increasing frequency lately.

Still can't post. Is this going to be fixed or is LuLa phoning it in?

As I said above, some characters make posting impossible (like an ellipsis). It's not the only problem, obviously.
Now, I don't have a list of these problematic characters.

Yes, I had to omit the Icelandic place name with its special character to be able to post.

It's a shame :-| . I love seeing those characters. They are essential.

First time today, inability to post. Come on Josh, get someone to fix this please.

Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.

When having problems with special characters, reporting to moderators doesn't work as the post contains those characters.

I haven't had any trouble, but then I keep my Win11 up to date. Possible issue? Also, FWIW, those look like formatting codes to me so maybe browser issues. I am using up to date Firefox, but cannot speak to other browsers.

FWIW, I'm on a Mac and tried with Safari, Firefox and Chrome.
