Why can't I start a new topic
« on: January 20, 2021, 06:11:36 AM »
I've been trying to start a new topic in the Water Cooler section but end up with messages saying:

"This page isnít working
www.madmodder.net is currently unable to handle this request.
HTTP ERROR 500"

On subsequent attempts if I use the same title I get a message saying "you've already submitted this post". :bang: :bang:

Can anyone help? :nrocks:

Will I be able to submit this post?  :med:

Well I started this topic successfully.  Does that mean it's a problem with attachments?

Perhaps you've been erased?

Reminds me of the financial crisis, where merchant bankers would return from lunch in the City of London to find that their swipe cards no longer worked, and phone enquiries reveal that they'd been made redundant and the contents of their desks were in a cardboard box at reception awaiting collection  :clap:

A friend of mine helped to move his company into nice new offices a few years back. When he asked where his desk was, he was told that he no longer had a job with them. Nice.

Well thankfully I have not been erased or fired in a new and unpleasant way, but I have solved the problem which was down to me forgetting to resize a photo.
