    I have another 'report bad post' "loading" now. I'm off to do other things. I'll leave it and see if an error comes up or if it eventually posts.

    Okay- checked back and got this:
    Database error
    The TechSpot OpenBoards database has encountered a problem.

    Seems like this came up in less time than last night. I left at 1 min.

    Thanks kimsland
    I used the "report post" feature on this thread right after making my post above and experienced exactly the problem you describe, since I never have used the feature before (since I'm a supermod) I had not had any problems before obviously

    But this is great, now I have somthing atleast do tests with!

    As a member, if you came on a reply that you thought was abusive on otherwise inappropriate-spam, advertising, inappropriate language, etc., you could report it as a bad post-

    As for someone posting on the wrong board, you could make a suggestion to the poster that it might be better in 'X' Forum. But that is not a 'bad post'. There are moderators who handle moving posts.

    I just happen to still be subscribed to this thread. But I'm not sure I've covered exactly what you mean about 3G.

    hmm; sounds to me like DB corruption or performance on a given table is stalling the backend.

    suggest offload the DB and then reload it and reindex is in order

    Bobbye: I'm pretty sure his post was intended for the News around the web: Why Ad Blocking is devastating to the sites you love

    Especially considering 8 hours ago he posted this in that thread:
    Edit: I've moved his post to that thread now, we can probably safely delete the last 3 posts in this thread now. I just left them for the time being so you guys (bobbye and jobeard) could see.

    Recently I have noticed that reporting bad posts seems to be working. At least it doesn't time out or give an error message. Most of the time there is no way to tell if it actually went through.

    old school HTML content

    @SNGX1275 thanks for moving post as it shows 'support for the Boards' however
    was related to the 3G dongle and the way the page is re-loaded prior to registering new changes to the 'posted cache'. I believe though (as I stated am no way the expert) the running scripts for the flash content were the issue. They are trying to load with fresh content or re-flash the page before the script reading / change posting takes place. This is true to what I witnessed, the page reloads half the sighted page then reframes the whole page / script as New!
    this old school style of page content that you "Techspot" already hold the user rights / licence to has been discontinued even though it was purchased as a totally operable media content type. The reason for mentioning, my point of contention is that I don't believe in just ditching a useful tool just because it is no longer "new & shiny"
