    Click only once

    Too many duplicate postings. Click only once. Would you click multiple times when make a credit card purchase?...

    Dude, you zinged yourself.

    Plus, half the time when it hangs it DOESN'T post and half the time it does. At least for me.

    Here's what I do when it hangs. I hit the stop but then I leave the message I'm trying to post alone and open a NEW page. Then go to bikeforums again with the new page and see if your message has been posted. Most times it has so I close the message page down. If not then try again.

    Regards, Anthony

    I have tried to check and see if the message was posted, not seen it, so I try to post it again, etc. ANd then all of a sudden I have multiple posts! Having seen this happen, I take other steps in the future, but it sure was frustrating when I saw how it screwed up my postings.

    That browser back button can trip you up, too, at times.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    And delete the duplicates when you do them. And since this latest upgrade, things seem to be going a lot better - so far

    Can we delete duplicates? I thought it was only the mods who were permissioned to do that.
