Not sure what's going on?

Postby AbelArcher » Thu Nov 09, 2017 9:22 pm

I'm not sure if it's just me, but whenever I try to edit any of my threads, I get an error every time I try to preview or post it.
What makes it odd is that it only happens when I try to edit a thread, posting this new one did not cause the error.

This is the error:

I get the same thing when I edit my main thread, not sure what causes it, but I'm assuming it's because the character limit is close to being hit. I don't have any involvement with the inner workings of the site itself, so it's a mystery for now.

Moved to forum talk for more exposure. I'll discuss this with the emperor.

Thanks. :)

On this topic, it seems BombDude's assumption of it being the character limit seems to be correct, as my recent overhaul fixed the issue (I reorganized it and drastically reduced the amount of characters in the post).

Hey guys, I made some tests and it's not clear the character limit is the problem right now. I got issues while testing where the webhost would temporarily ignore HTTP requests from me when I submitted an edit with what could be too many bbcode funky characters. It's the kind of things that can happen when systems like Fail2Ban are used. Now we don't have much control on the server side so it might not be that at all and if it is we might not be able to fix it easily. But We'll keep investigating. So far I had the most problems when the last character in a post is a bbcode ']' bracket.

I'd appreciate if you could notify us when you see it happening, this way we could look at it and reproduce it. I don't spend that much time on the forums so it would be cool if you could hop on the IRC chat when it happens (link is at the top of the page!), we're always in there :)

Oh.... on this topic. When I used to use to host our rbn rips(even postwiki)... I would get timed out(same error) thus i had to reupload all the rbn(at the time) to zippyshare.. now it works fine with zippyshare links. Perhaps it has something to do the the number sign/hash ( # )..(or a combination of the [ #! ]) in the links themselves.
