  • OK that's it. Fuck the format.

    I just spent an hour typing out an entire essay on how you can use terrestrial sorcery in space. And I lost it. Why? Cause the webpage posted it way too slowly, and I turned off the computer before it finished. Now the data's lost, and i'm going to have to take another hour.

    Why the hell is it so slow, and why does my computer keep on shouting that this site is 'not secure'?

        I notice the occasional slowness, especially when posting, but not to degree you described.

        Your browser complaining about the site being 'not secure' is because the site is not using HTTPS. HTTPS uses the SSL/TLS protocol to provide a secure connection, which is both encrypted and authenticated. If I remember correctly, they tried switching it to https and ran into a lot of problems which effectively broke the site and they didn't have access to the resources that would have been needed to pursue a solution so they switched it back to non-https. If you are concerned, I would primarily make sure that you don't use your password for this site anywhere else (which is sound advice regardless).

          Did you have lost of links in your post? One of the anti-spam features triggers pretty easily if there are a ton of links to make sure bots don’t overwhelm the site. It doesn’t trigger if you edit the links in afterwards.

          Either way, if you are making a lengthy post, I’d advise writing it in Google Docs first so you don’t lose it if something glitches.

              I don’t actually know what the threshold is. It might be as low as three or four.

                I believe it depends on how many link to the same place, and/or certain websites over others.

                  Yeah, it was caught in the spam filter.

                      Happens sometimes... At this point I learned to, whenever I want to be long-winded, write on a local editor and copy it into the board. Sucks, but there isn't much to be done about it.

                          I have a long, long habit of just copying any sort of forum post to clipboard before posting. Just a thought!

                            Yeah, I do that sometimes. The forum used to do this annoying thing where it would reset while I was writing, though it doesn't anymore.
