What was up with Mylot last night?

Mylot wasn't working for me for several hours last night. Every time I would try to respond to or start a discussion, I would keep getting an error message in bright red text saying it couldn't post the content and to use only plain text, which I was. When I would type something and preview it first, it would show up in the preview, but when I tried to submit it I would get another error message; this time saying, "Please try to resubmit again." When I tried to start a discussion, it would always just come up, "Unable to post content, please try again...thank you!" I don't know what the problem was, but I kept coming back and checking on it until I went to bed. Was anyone else having this problem or was it just me?

There were problems for everyone last night and it appeared that no body could sign in or out, post or contact Admin for that matter which is what I tried to do to no avail. I emailed one of my friends and she informed me that several members were experiencing a similar problem which was one heck of a relief; I thought I had been banned! Phew…!!

I guess I was lucky last night then because that would have tested my stress levels last night..I took a break from mylot so I guess I missed out on all the fun but it has happened to me several times, I either get that or sometimes a white blank page. Which I just press F5 and it helps alot with the white pages.

Yeah the white pages aren't really a problem because you can just refresh like you said. Thanks.

No, I wasn't. That is really strange too. I have had it give me a blank page after I submit my response, and I never could figure that out either. I just hit the back utton and was able to get the page to load up. I had one time awhile back where I went to submit a post and mylot told me I used words that were't allowed, and I thought that was strange, as I didn't think I did, so I just hit the back button and redid it, submitted it and it went through. Sometimes, I think that there is a gltch in mylot's system. I don't think it was in my computer although sometimes I want to toss it out, when it locks up, but other than that, no problems. I hope that everything goes better for you now. Good luck and happy mylotting.
