I'm sure you've all noticed the recent slowness of the board, especially related to posting.  We're seeing a lot of double posting, even doubling up on whole topics.

 

We're working on a fix, but in the meantime we do have a bit of a workaround for the double posting.  That is, just wait. ;)  The board is actually posting just as fast as it normally does.  What's being delayed is the process of getting out of the posting dialog and back to the thread.  So when you get annoyed with the delay and hit Post again, we get a second instance.  (You can see this by watching the behavior across multiple windows.)

 

What I've been doing is opening a new tab if I want to post something.  Type it up and post, then switch to the other window to get back to browsing.

You mean it can't sense my frustration? The more I click the faster it goes...right?

This all started when George asked if he could carry a purse.

I'll be shutting the board down briefly at noon on Sunday to upgrade the hosting package.

I don't know Scotts. I think you should leave the slow posting as it is and call it a feature. Think of it as the last consideration of a post someone has. Instead of sitting there grumbling about the board being slow, a poster could sit there and consider whether or not they really really really want to post said content.

Did something change tonight? All of a sudden it seems my posts zip right through. As recently as this week they didn't.
