Did you find anything @Brian G? The same window has popped up 3 times today.

View attachment 4701

What I have noticed is that it only seems to happen on posts that don't already have a like.
No clue as of now.

Over the past few days while on Chrome on Windows occasionally the message/dialogue/reply/whatever-you-want-to-call-it box is just totally missing:

As opposed to the same view in Internet Explorer:

I believe that may have something to do with similar posts addon. If you refresh, should pop back up.

I'm not sure. Just now I clicked on the multi-quote button on a post and it went to this:

I turned off the app - let me know if it changes anything.

I've seen this a few times before but when I refreshed the page everything went back to normal.
I still can't find anything on your issue. My only recommendation is to update your browser, java, etc to the latest. In search of an answer though - I did find something that may be a better system however.

TBH, it's not really a big deal. You click the button and it takes you back to exactly where you were.

It just makes me think longer about pressing that like button :lol:

Thanks for looking into it. :thumbsup:

Weird cookie I've been seeing. It seems like I keep getting logged out whenever I visit the forums. This happens on my phone (Safari, iOS latest) and laptop (Chrome, Mac latest)

EDIT: I just might not be able to computer? I reset my password which I would imagine would trigger a logout on all my devices. And then I just noticed that "remember my login" checkbox wasn't on. False alarm!

The site seems real buggy on posting this weekend. About half of the threads move me to a default page when trying to post or reply, or do a like. The other half of the threads are normal one step processes. I'm on a computer using Firefox. :)

Yeah, there's definitely some weird stuff going on, like I've seen at least a couple of your posts where you've quoted someone and there's no response.

No problems here, browser is opera.
Are you on a PC or on a mobile device? I know mobile browsers tend to be finicky.
PC. It just did it again on this post. When I replied to you, it sent me to a default page. When I clicked on reply, it posted your post in the box on the thread. Then I had to hit an edit on that post to put this response in....But it doesn't happen on every reply or like, just about half of them. Kind of erratic.

Have you tried a different browser to make sure that it's not just a simple issue like that?

It just happened with Chrome also, on this post.....Additionally, on Saturday, I couldn't post on this thread unless I quoted someone, but now I get a normal box at the bottom of the thread where I can post normally....It's weird since it changes constantly on the various threads....One moment it's normal posting. and the next, it sends me to a default page and I have to do a couple of steps to get a post done properly....Same with the likes. Sometimes the like takes instantly. Then the next time it sends me to a default page that asks me if I'm certain I want to post the like. :shrug:...On the good side, the emoicons are working fine though. :)

Very small issue, but I linked my instagram to the Contact Details part of my account and haven't been awarded the Socially Tied trophy. Did i misunderstand the criteria?

Socially Tied is when you use Twitter or Facebook account as your log-in info for the site. Attaching a social media profile just updates your profile.

Gotcha! So would linking twitter through External Accounts suffice, or would you have to create the account with Twitter from the get-go?
