I got a PM from him this morning OK...................it seems to be related to threads that HE starts................
I vaguely remember back in the old days you could create a nice Troll account (sorry Shrek~) using odd symbols and it gave you a "cloak of invulnerability" against the AP system.............
Could it be anything to do with the .:_____:. I wonder?

Anyway i doubt the .: :. has something to do with it, since i never had probs like this before.

Why we don't ask a mod to creat an account with the same characters and see if the problem is similar .... if not so we can look for some aother causes ...

I'd find it unlikely since he can answer threads and posters afterwards can also answer. I would think the issue would propogate through. That said, I tried it. It isn't the special characters that are at issue. I've checked his signature for any potential code issues there (didn't see any). So this is one that is outside of the realm of "normal" and we'll need mnstrgrl to check it out. It's very odd to say the least.

Hi .: Shrekkie :.,
It seems to be isolated to certain forums...because on three attempts at posting behind three different threads I couldn't...
but here...in Opps a Bug there doesn't seem to be a problem...because I've been able to post behind you with no problems.
It might be forum specific.
Errrr...scratch that...I have been able to post behind you in Site Suggestions in another thread...so...it wouldn't be forum specific.

Since I could not post there... thats once per page not thread.
Signatures are only included once in every thread.
