Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.

"Post Not Specified"

Postby Zombie Starscream » Mon Mar 19, 2007 8:41 pm

Motto: "Time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of gum."
Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Sometimes whenever I tried to post something or create a topic more than a paragraph long, I get "Post Not Specified."
Is it mainly a problem with the forum program this site uses?
And is there a chance it might get fixed soon? I know this happens to a lot of people who post here, even the Mods and Site Admins., so I know I'm not the only one who has this problem.

I'm guessing that you forget to put a title in whenever you start a topic. That's the only explanation I can think of.

Yep, it is due to having the Subject line blank. It happened to me once and I've kept it in mind ever since.

Would I still have to put in the subject in the subject line even if I'm just submitting a reply?

No, that normally isn't needed since the reply contains the correct sequence of cookies to add it to the correct thread. If you get the message from replying to a thread, then it must be due to an internal cookie error, which is rare but probable.

I don't think it's the subject line.
Only when starting a new thread.
This happens when you take too long answering a post before submitting. There seems to be a time limit.

Yeah. I've been having trouble with this a bit lately, but only for relatively long, wordy posts.

Which is annoying, because those are the most fun.

Well, then I don't know about it with replying.

It only happened to me once with the new thread from blank subject line, but I haven't had it happen to me from replying yet.
