I have noticed over the last few days that multiple posting to threads, and in some casses, multiple threads seems to be on the increase.
While this is only a very minor glitch, and the cause may be many things, wouldn't it be a good idea if some method was developed to stop it?
As Pesala said, if a 45 second delay was introduced, someone clicking on 'post responce/begin new' twice by accident could not happen.
Or perhaps the web page could be very slightly re-designed. Once you have clicked on 'post responce/begin new', how hard would it be to make the pressing of the button not only send the post/new thread, but disable the button? That way you cant press it again, by accident, or on purpose, untill the page has re-loaded, with your post/thread now on it.
Perhaps if clicking on 'post response/begin new' caused the button to change, and say 'responce posted'/'starting thread', and not work ony more.
But as i know nowt at all about web page design, i have no idear if this is even possible, let alone how hard/easy it would be to do!
I've made this mistake once but it's just a case of having the patience to wait, after clicking 'Post response', and resisting the urge to click it again because you think it hasn't gone, it usually has, especially when the site is busy.
I was not saying you were being rude mate just that despite the current difficulties (which are hopefully soon to be resolved) this is my FIRST port of call when going online as I am a forum addict and the advice and help is top notch.
I agree with all the comments above to do with only being able to press the post response button once as this would surely put LESS load on the server? CW
don't forget when you post a reply to the forum that it generally only travels at 256 kb and not FULL speed as I am sure that most people know that broadband has a faster download speed than upload speed! CW
