This thread is just for me to test to see if I can post to the board.

My issues are sort of summarized here: Message 432

But I'm pretty sure the issue is on my end, nothing to do with the board software.
I'm using a laptop on a certain-domain at a non-normal site going through the internet on a different domain.
I think there's security/configuration issues internal to the site I'm at that's confusing certain things.

Being able to post "somewhere" on the board seems to flush the problem through and allow to post where I originally wanted to.

So, in order to not clutter up other areas, I'll dump a few "test" messages to this thread when I require them.

Stupid computers.
"Wave of the future" they said.
"Make everything easier" they said.

Punch in the nose! Says I.

Damn Computers
I hate these damn computers. I wish they wouldn't sell them.
They never do quite what I want, but only what I tell them.

Your network is not experiencing any bugs. It's just spontaneously developing random new features.

Most of all, remember, the problem with attempts at troubleshooting is that sometimes trouble shoots back.

Good luck to you.

I thought you were going to test us for stupidity. I was all ready to demonstrate mine.

If anyone's wondering, I did notice a minor thing that's not-entirely-related-to-my-system:

As long as I did things like this, I have no problems:

Go to All Topics.
Right click and open-in-new-tab any thread I want to read (by right-clicking on the blue 'unread-message' arrow on the far left).
Read whatever tabs I have open.
See something I want to reply to.
Open reply (in same tab thread exists in my browser, not a new-tab this time) using message's direct reply-to-specific-post button.
Make reply post text.
Usually click Preview button a few times.
Using my all encompassing knowledge of everything, my reply is perfect and I complete it successfully at this stage.
Click Submit Reply button.
Reply posts... and everything works great.

However, if I do this, then things mess up:

Go to All Topics.
Right click and open-in-new-tab any thread I want to read (by right-clicking on the blue 'unread-message' arrow on the far left).
Read whatever tabs I have open.
See something I want to reply to.
Open reply (in same tab thread exists in my browser, not a new-tab this time) using message's direct reply-to-specific-post button.
Make reply post text.
Identify that I'm stupid can't remember what I'm replying to somewhere else.
From the same existing tab I'm in (currently with reply editing box open) I right click on the thread name near the top where all the blue text with -> arrows is. Here, it would be the text saying "Stile's Stupid Test Thread". I right click on the thread name and open the thread in another new tab. In that new tab... I re-read the thread, perhaps look at some message-that-I'm-not-specifically-replying-to, maybe copy some text and paste it back over into my reply-tab (still open).

...this is usually where things go wrong.

Might click Preview button or maybe I'm super-confident and jump straight to the Submit Reply button...

...but post never posts... I get the errors I'm describing above and I generally have to post somewhere else, and/or restart my PC to correct the problem and go back to normal.

This isn't something new, either. This is how I've replied to threads for years and it's always worked with no issues in the past. I'm just seeing this strange-ness recently.

Anyway, I'm fine just not-opening-the-existing-thread-from-my-reply-tab and I don't seem to run into the issue any more.

Just a test post following along in your 2nd set of instructions...

Opened thread in another tab, am pasting text from that tab:

So, in order to not clutter up other areas, I'll dump a few "test" messages to this thread when I require them.

Clicked preview again...

Sorry, I'm unable to replicate. The gateway timeout problem usually means that a website has gone down, but from what you describe that doesn't seem to be the case, and EvC hasn't gone down that I know of in quite some time, knock on wood. Your suspicion of a security problem seems possible, but I don't know for sure. If you learn more about the problem then post again.
