  • Did it post?

    I realize that new members often don't see their posts right away because they have to be approved, which I understand completely. BUT, I don't know if my posts are even going through? Whenever I post, it seems to refresh the "Create New Topic" page, emptying all the text fields, and at the very top of the window, I just see the word "Working" in black text with a pale yellow background. I am using Google Chrome. I hate trying to repost my stuff because either I forgot to copy and paste it somewhere and can't remember all the details I put in the post, or I am not wanting to clog the moderation team's inbox with posts they have to delete because they are duplicates. So... is it just me? Or is this a common issue? Are my posts going through? And if you are a moderator reading this and saw that I posted something multiple times today about what to do after graduation, I am deeply sorry for the reposting. I just don't know if any of this is working.

    Yes, your posts are going through, but there isn't a moderator logged in at all times to approve them immediately. As for the never-ending "'Working' in black text with a pale yellow background," I see it too when I post anything. Despite what it says, the posts do go through. The software that runs the forum is, well, sort of awful. If it were my forum, I'd fix it, but I'm just a moderator here.

      Thanks. I understand there isn't always a mod, we all have lives outside of the computer. :-) Thanks for the heads up about it!

          Actually, I do have a print related issue if you'd like to take a stab at helping me with. Should I post in the correct category with the issue and picture that goes with it?
