I think I'm not the only one who violently dislikes these "spam posts". I mean the 4 times, 5 times identical posts on the mainboard.
I don't know if people do this on purpose, even if not, this is annoying. Mad
My request to Stan is, please remove these threads if possible, one about one topic is enough.

i think it has something to do with how the IE cache works with this message board.

i remember when i first came here i tried to enter in something and it didnt appear so I kept re-submitting it. i think this is what happens when new people come in to ask a question

lovin' every minute of it

Sometimes you try to submit a new topic and you continue to get errors or the topic doesn't show up. You continue to post the same topic and when it finally takes, all the other attempts you made show up as well. I don't think most people are posting repeats on purpose. Since I post here frequently, I'm familiar with this and know that my post will show up eventually but as jon said, the new posters aren't familiar with this.

Yeah, I understand you guys. It really takes quite a time until the post is submitted. The CGI Processor is not that fast.
But nevertheless it might be possible to delete these clones... Would keep our board cleaner... Smile

Yeah, I had this problem when I was new. It was really annoying when I tried to post a new thread, I was like "Where is it!" I've learned now that even though it says "error," it will eventually come up.
