    I'm experiencing a weird glitch at the moment. Several times I've hit Post Reply and the post appears to have to have been posted, but when I click Recent Post, it's not there. I then go back to the thread and the post is there but greyed out and when I click Post Reply, it then actually gets posted.

    Are others experiencing this?

    @OzRay@OzRay - what browser?

    I think it happened to me once.

    I think it will also happen if you open two browser tabs to the same thread, and reply in one of the tabs. (but I think I've seen it happen outside that case as well)

    I use FF 35.

    I am not experiencing that glitch (OS X, Safari).

    FYI - I have had two mu4/3 windows open and not had the problem this afternoon.

    I'm using IE11. It doesn't happen with every post, so it appears to be an intermittent issue.

    The interesting thing is that this only started fairly recently, so it's possible that it's linked to one or other of the ongoing changes. Now the only thing that's at the back of my mind is whether it has anything to do with how long it takes before I click the post button. I'm going to see if there's any correlation with it happening with a quick or slow post. And I'm going to test it to see if it happens if I open a thread in another tab, rather than opening the thread directly.

    The site is obviously (to me) saving posts before you hit "post reply", presumably as a backup in case you lose your connection, your browser crashes, your wife takes away her iPad, ...
    I'm fine with that feature, but it is related to these artifacts.

    For me, it didn't start more recently; I noticed it shortly after the site switched to XenForo.

    I was aware that it was saving the post, just like the old software; but maybe it's multiple saving and not being aware of it being posted, especially if you go away and leave it un-posted for a short time.

    (This was a quick post in another tab)
