Is there a reason that I cannot add a comment?

When I try to add a comment in a thread, I find a long, narrow pink rectangle at the top of the page with a little apology telling me that there has been an error in my post....Oh my, have I been barred? Or is this simply a kink with the new website to be worked out?

Hmmm...Let's see if I can comment here. Maybe restart your browser or clear the cache? I'm not sure. - --Mariana--, AGO 11, 2009

On the day I had the problem, I used Chrome and Internet Explorer both 7 and 8 (on two machines).

However, I can now comment again.

Thanks to whomever has fixed the problem.

Is that whoever? Is "whoever fixed the problem" a noun clause acting as the object of the preposition? - 0074b507, AGO 13, 2009

What exactly does the error message say? It's possible that you've been banned, but it seems highly unlikely. (I can't check right now... I think you're probably safe. smile) Or does it say your comment looks too spammy? We do have a spam filter in place that tries to automatically detect spam....

But between you and Rocco, it sounds like there's a bug. We'll look into it, of course. What browser are you using? The site typically works best in Firefox and Chrome, and should work just as well in Internet Explorer 7 or 8, although we've had a couple problems there. If you're using Internet Explorer 6, I strongly recommend that you upgrade to a more modern browser (if at all possible).

I reported this problem earlier today. When I click on the word "Comment," I get a pink box at the top of my screen saying, "There was an error posting your comment." I am also having trouble with the voting.

Also, when I vote on a post, I am taken to a blank screen with a small number (what should be the new vote total) in the upper right hand corner. I then have to redirect my browser to SpanishDict.com's main page.
