    I have been reading threads and in a few of them there seems to be a lot of double posts from members who don't double post.

    What I mean by double post:
    The replica of the original post is made and comes after the original post.

    This wouldn't be caused by the members themselves as this tends to happen to quite a few people and they don't double post. :)

    What's up with that?

    I think it has to do with the site being a little slow on occasion...

    when this happens people tend to click twice or more on the submit button...or refresh which has the same effect...

    I do it too... though I normally try and delete my repeat post when the screen finally does load up...

    I spose the site is having some load issues from time to time... maybe dave will clarify ?

    I also noticed the site becoming very slow as of late. It was much faster several days ago.

    Shouldn't the boards have a spam control thing built in that only alows the post to be submitted once?

    is there talk behind the scenes on this. Because if there is, id like to put the idea of changing forums, from phpBB to http://www.invisionboard.com/ Ill edit the name in later.

    In theory it shouldn't be to much of a programming hassel to block double posts one after another.

    No talk behind the scenes unless you mean sonic and I trying to figure out why it takes forever to delete a post.
