Sometimes knowing what your browser and operating system are, and whether you are on mobile or desk top view can help the experts figure out what went wrong. Please let us know what systems you are using.

Were you, by chance, leaving the tab open for a while and it gave you a CRSF error message page? I got one of those last night and hadn't gotten around to reporting it. Sometimes when we take too long composing something, or someone posts while I'm composing, I get that error. It's supposed to be fixed, but sometimes the CSRF messages rear their ugly heads.

Usually you can just go "back" and copy your message and put it in a NEW reply and it'll work just fine.

Oh yes, i did all that several times. Even closed, came back in and pasted a reply with amd without quote.

Only when i removed w-w-2 and percentages of hydrogen which are dangerous would it allow a post. I hammered it about 15 times.

It would allow "test" then not allow the paste, it would allow parts of the same comment not the whole and not world war two as i had it. Nor the section on hydrogen safety as a cooking gas reclaimed from battery charging.... dangerous.

It will not allow me to post it in parts or whole, even in the pm i sent you. There is nothing shady in it and i dont understand the metric apparently being used.

Weird question:
I'm not familiar with the phone you have. Any possible chance the cntrl key was depressed? On my laptop computer, cntrl W changes the window, sometimes back to the previous one.
I tested WW2,ww2 WWII wwii etc, all post just fine. How were you writing the hydrogen %?
And, did you try powering down the phone and back up, then try again? If something was weird, that might stop it.
I really don't think it was anything on this site that is doing that.

Thanks Pearl. No, no cntrl key and i was posting back and forth between forums and returning to try the nife again to no avail. Will not allow the same in a PM to Nicole. I had to email it to her for examination. There are two paragraphs it simply will not allow.

AH-HA! I figured it out! It's a mix of mobile view and the letter "u" being used by itself. Our system doesn't allow people to type the letter "U" by itself, as people use it as slang for "you," which can confuse people who speak english as a second language.

In the desktop view, it tells you:

We're sorry, but your post appears to contain abbreviations that we don't like people to use at the Ranch. Because JavaRanch is an international forum, many of our members are not native English speakers. For that reason, it's important that we all try to write clear, standard English, and avoid abbreviations and SMS shortcuts. See here for more of an explanation. Thanks for understanding.

If the abbreviation occurs within code, you can use code tags to post it successfully. If the abbreviation is a variable name, you can use the tt tag.

The specific error message is: "u" is a silly English abbreviation; use "you" instead.



BUT, in the mobile view, it doesn't tell you ANYTHING. It just doesn't submit. It sits in limbo and you have no idea why.

Mobile view needs work.

That is kinda funny. Thanks you guys, and now we know. Sorry it caused a ruckus and stuff though. Well pv systems are sometimes operated like ww2 you-boats then! Im sure that statement will cause another international grammar incident.
