I can't post a new topic in That Stinks. I keep getting a message that says the server doesn't understand my post (or something kind of like that).  I cut and pasted the post from a Word doc, but I've done that before with no problem. 

Thanks for the help!

We had an upgrade not long ago.

I get the same message when cut and pasting from a word doc.

Sorry I can be of no help with this.  :(

Testing from Word to see if this can be pasted into a message.

I was able to copy and paste from Word with no problem. Our board must be haunted! Who did it? :skull

I just got one of those strange doesn't understand my post messages when trying to post a reply. I hit back, and tried hitting post again. Nothing happened. I copied my reply then went up a level and clicked to open the thread again. This time I hit reply, pasted in my message and it posted fine.  Very strange.

Every now and then, when trying to view the board on my blackberry I'll get a 502 bad request or something message, like the site is down, and then it will work again a few minutes later.

I just had the same problem. I wasn't cutting and pasting or anything.

Let's see if this one goes through...

OK, so that one worked, but I just realized the one that failed had a quote in it. Maybe that's similar to a cut and paste from Word. Let's see if this one works.

I've been having some trouble posting in That Stinks today.  Same "server doesn't understand" messages.  Let's see if I can post here!

Okay, but not in the no news trench.  Maybe that's the one that's haunted!  By evil turkey! :yum

I have had several problems

I get posts that disappear and never show up

I get the error message

I go back and retry a different method and sometimes that works

If someone else post at the same time I am posting, I get an error message

It won't let my post go through anyway

I think my computer may be part of the problem  - it can't handle upgrades.  :mad4
