Last night, around 10 PM Pacific, couldn't post anything, anywhere. Other than posting, the site seemed fine.

Couldn't post to "General Lifeness" yesterday from my phone; I saved my message to Evernote so I could pull it up and re-try on my PC; that worked. (But that was today, and the issue was yesterday.)

Yeah, noticed, It's not just posting, but simple browsing will occasionally not work. I even experienced it on the main site. So something to do with our hosting provider.

Usually some sort of routing problem...seems not to be an issue today...at least...I'm not seeing one and I did see the interruptions yesterday.

Working better or still seeing the problem?

I was definitely seeing it this morning. Have to browse around a bit to see if it is still occurring.

edit: add: Seems to be working fine now. Haven't had any issues in the past 5 minutes or so.

I outright couldn't post anything longer than a single line reliably yesterday -- Win10, Microsoft Edge. It seems to be working now, though.

yeah, I decided that a couple brilliant posts I was going to make yesterday weren't worth the hassle.

At least, they were slightly more shiny than this post :roll:

Yeah, if that happens again the trick I've found is to visit the site in another tab, which will refresh whatever it is that gets lost, then you can post just fine. It's being idle that causes the problem, which writing a medium/long post is as far as the connection is concerned.

Didn't work for me. Reopened the site, tried a fresh tab, restarted the browser--nothing. Everything looked fine unless I tried to post.

...Hmm...I didn't try logging out and back in, though.

Ahh, okay, that's odd. Short posts work, but longer than one line doesn't?

Gifs (in the Gifs thread) are sometimes not displaying property.

Sometimes they're not GIFs.
