Lagging/Glitching with posting

    Whenever I try to post on a topic I get a HUGE delay as if my message wasn't sent, and it stays on the page of where I was typing, as if the message was still buffering and delaying to be sent, but then I refresh and its sent, but A LOT are sent (Due to me pressing Post from the delay and thinking it wasn't sent).
    A good example was in the "Nightmare" faction page,

    I'm aware of this, but it's nothing I can do on my part, unfortunately.

    I cleaned up the posts in the Nightmare faction thread.

    It happens to me too,when i post/send something it keeps buffering but if i open a new tab and look at the thread i see the post there.
    kinda annoying but manageable.

    It happens every now and then, for unknown reasons. You just gotta tolerate it and do your best to avoid spam posting :/
    No worries though, accidents will be tolerated.

    That must have been a long time ago when I didn't have much moderating privilege. I know server lag when I see double/triple/quad/penta/hexa+ posts & threads with the exact same content, and it's excusable in my book.

    I'll probably have to figure out a way how to make posting function using Ajax so it disables the post buttons to prevent duplicate entries. It's merely a band-aid idea, doesn't tackle the situation at hand which is uncontrolled server lag.
