I apologise if someone has already brought this up...
I double post about once every ten times I post.
I have no idea why this happens...
MAKE IT STOP!!!?

Do the boards have flood protection so it would prevent you from making too many posts at one time? It's supposed to have a 60 second delay before double-posting...

The flood protection is funny. It lets double posts pass by with no problem, then prevents you from making one post on one thread, then making a post on another thread. I don't know why. It annoys me.

I only press the buttons once, and it sometimes double-posts even if the "flood protection" thing doesn't come up.

When you go back to a posting CGI script, it will post it again.

Just learn to be patient and you'll be fine. A faster computer also helps.

I checked my last fifty posts, and there’s no sign of double posting. And no high speed internet needed. :P

To prevent this from happening, try double-clickihng the "Back" button. If you still get the double post bug, press the arrow next to "Back" (if you're using IE) or right-click on back (for Netscape Users) and then click on the second or third page (the one before you post).

EDIT: Alternate solution: When you see the page that says "Thank you for posting," bang the "STOP" button :D and click back TWICE.
