Problem posting
« on: May 30, 2012, 04:45:32 pm »
Post in question: http://forums.blockaderunnergame.com/index.php?topic=1301.0

I have more stuff I'm trying to add, but if it gets much longer than it is, it gives me the following error:
Quote
Database Error
Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.

I click on the provided back button, and if I try posting again.
Quote
An Error Has Occurred!
You already submitted this post! You might have accidentally double clicked or tried to refresh the page.

I originally thought it had to do with post length, and everything I try seems to support this, but there are plenty of posts that are significantly longer.

Well and truly stumped.  Any ideas are appreciated.

Edit:  Editing at Alaric's request.  For science.

Edit2: Additional science-ing.  Spoiler can be safely ignored if successful.

I tested and I am able to edit your posts.

We're not sure yet what is causing this problem. We're looking into it, but for the time being feel free to copy your old post, post it as a new post with edits and delete your old post. Leave at least one post at the start of your thread so that when the problem is solved we can throw everything back into the original post.

We can tell you now it isn't the character limit. You're right, there are posts much longer than yours and our limit is set very high.

It shouldn't be a post length issue, that OP is nowhere near the limit. Probably (yet another) artifact of the server move, although I'm not quite sure why it would be happening now and to you when others have created and edited posts without issue. I shall PM the devs and raise their attention to your plight at once! 8)

Tried making a new post as Strait Raider suggested.  Got the same error.

Can you try editing the OP in this thread, or another of your posts somewhere else? It now seems that this might be somehow only related to that thread...

Successfully edited OP, then failed when I tried to replace the spoiler text with stuff from the post I'm having problems with.

...It has tabs in it.  The text I'm pasting.  Could that cause problems?

Edit:  Not the tabs.  Perhaps some other carryover?  Going to attempt to do the problem thread almost completely from scratch with no pasting from an exterior editor.

Edit 2:  Rewrite complete, posted successfully.  Here's the original document prior to any modification:

Edit 3:  OP of problem thread successfully updated and cleaned up.

Glad to hear everything works now! It might have been a non-visible character embedded from the external editor, ever figure out which it was?

Naw.  I could do some additional testing if you like, but gah.  Such a frustrating experience.

Thanks for the help, both of you. :)
