      I've removed a ton of duplicate posts lately, mostly in here, due to a recent forum glitch (kind of a rant, I guess). But we've found a sort-of-workaround until we get it fixed. If you guys reply using the "Go Advanced" button instead of "Post Quick Reply", it should post only once. I'm using it for this post now, so just figured I'd give you guys a heads-up (and save me some extra work in the process).

      I wonder when the exact time when it all started? I noticed that there are some members, including myself, who have doubled or tripled posted and it is not caused by the glitch. Perhaps, the double posting is what is making it worse? I know there is a rule saying that we are not allowed to Double Post here. Perhaps this is the reason? When I was on another forum, we had a glitch like this there but, it didn't last this long because the mods cracked down on the double posting. I'm not trying to get anyone in trouble but, maybe we need to do that? (shrugs)

      Oh yeah, I just gave myself a bloody nose.

      Well, there's a difference between a "double post" and a "duplicate post". The forum rule applies to the "double post", where you post something, and then a few minutes or hours later you post in the same thread again to add more info - without anyone else replying in between. This is frowned upon mainly because it clutters up the thread and makes it hard to read - I've seen it before where someone split about 5 sentences of text between 4 posts in a row, with a butt-ton of white space in between, which was incredibly unnecessary. We strongly encourage you to use the "Edit Post" button below the post if you want to add additional info - but since posts aren't editable after 24 hours, we understand if you have to add a new post for more info - in those cases, the mods will usually merge the double post into one. At worst, we might send a friendly reminder to use the Edit Post button if we see a consistent pattern of double posting from one member.

      A duplicate post is another thing, and often it's either done on accident or at no fault of the user. We understand, sometimes internet connections suck, and sometimes mice are sensitive and double-click accidentally, and heck, the forum just plain glitches sometimes. We won't get mad at you for honest mistakes and accidents, but we do appreciate if you let us know when it happens by using the "Report Post" button below the duplicate post. Actually, I'm working on a script fairly soon that can scan recent posts and detect if a duplicate post has occurred, and either notifies the mods or (possibly) deletes the post automatically (though hopefully the glitch gets fixed before I have to implement it ).

      These are also not to be confused with "cross-posting" - copying/pasting the same thread into multiple subforums in order increase exposure - which is also against the rules. That, we usually will crack down on, since that's almost always entirely unnecessary.

      Rant: I have blood nose. I found a soda and it is flat.

      Will, I Also hope the duplicate posting stops soon too. May these duplicate posts someday turn into double rainbows.

      DreamVixen... I read your last post as 'gave myself a bloody nose. Found a sofa and it's flat.'
      I was wondering what kind of sofa is anything other than flat. Wondered if you meant its color or that it was broken
      Then I re-read (for a third time) and finally saw you actually wrote SODA
      Is it already THAT kind of day

      I'm now trying the advance reply function to see if that will, indeed, help.

      Rant: I have a sore spot on my back, lower left gum on my tongue side. I get them from time to time. I'll eat something a little too hard or whatever. It usually clears up within a couple days, but it's annoying for its duration.
      Rant: I'm still bloated. Miralax and fiber just give me gas... even with drinking 5-10 cups of water a day (64 ounces on a great day). I really think something's going on with my kidneys or bladder though. Every time I try to completely empty my bladder I feel like passing out. I even took an entire water pill yesterday, which made me feel REALLY good lol until close to bed time when I nearly passed out. Hmmmm...

      Rant: The coils for my e-cig have been dudding out much too quickly. I've been going through one box of 5 every week for the last 3 weeks

      Rave-ish: Been working on my canvas needle point some. It feels nice to do that again, but I REALLY hate doing the trim and I'm worried about my measurements because I doubled up on the canvas to see if that helps it live longer.

      Rant/Rave: I'm SUPER sleepy today so I'll probably take a caffeine pill... BUT I've been sleeping much better these last couple nights than I have in weeks.

      Rave: Been loving 7D2D. Made it to day 33, so far, without dying once. I have a large base and I've been trying out new ideas. I even opened it up to MP once I'm social enough to invite some of my Steam friends.

      Hope everyone's having a great day. Loved that double rainbow, DreamVixen

      **EDIT**
      The work-around worked, SpellBee. Thanks!

      ***EDIT***
      I figured out why I'm so sleepy. Mr. Monthly just arrived. And I was grumbling about it. Thought I was early, so I checked the calendar. I'm actually 3 days late

      LOL! The soda was gross tasting. My nose is a little-swollen nose. I tripped over something and my hit nose on the ground. It's okay my boyfriend is taking care of me. I'm a lucky girl!

      Edit: I'm exhausted.
      Edit 2: Going to get some solar glasses at the Planetarium Discovery Center tomorrow before there is no more left.

      Trump. That's all I need to say. God, when I read The Dead zone, I didn't realize it was about real life.

      Rave: I get my car back tomorrow hopefully. SO excited. My automobile is going to be getting a big hug!

      Rant: My second court appearance is scheduled tomorrow. I won't be able to make it though because it's 2 hours away and I have no car. I plan on contacting the court and telling them I'm really sick. Hopefully it goes through without any dramas. I'm a little nervous though.

      I hope your nose is all better, DreamVixen.
      Did you get out of court okay, Yuppie?

      Rant: 3 of our cats had kittens. We take 2 steps forward and 6 steps back All of Pumpkins babies died. She actually did a great job mothering them this time until the end. The fleas won.
      We can't find one set of kittens.
      Ash brought her babies inside the main house once they became mobile. I took a shower with one of them yesterday. He's adorable. Looks like there's Siamese in him. .... gotta go beat the dog.. (if only). I just took another shower with another kitten once it was discovered it had fallen prey to a "fly strike". I didn't see any wounds so I'll have to keep a close eye on it.

      Rant: when I said I was going to go beat the dog it was because I heard one of the babies cry. Sure enough, I got out there and it was covered in puppy slobbers. He keeps picking them up from the area Ash moved them in order to play. The one with the fly strike had been brought outside and left, by the puppy, at least 3 different times. I keep telling him "no" but he's not getting the picture. He's now tied up outside and barking his head off.

      Rave: I picked up my home sleep study machone earlier today. It's going to be interesting and I have no idea how I'm going to keep everything attached because I toss and turn so much.
      Rant: getting to the appointment was a massive undertaking. I fell asleep, while driving, several times. I've been sleeping from 12:30-7:50AM. I should not be THAT tired (Fitbit says I'm averaging about 3 hrs a night for all the tossing).

      Rant: I have been beside myself, seething in anger today. My daughter quit her job. The one I've been killing myself getting them to. And I had been so proud of her for finally growing up and "adulting".
      This dog is going to drive me insane... time to move the babies and get him back inside.

      Hope everyone's been well.
