- Jun 4, 2018 at 1:05 am #3540051
Just tried posting a new post, only to get a “Duplicate Post” error message preventing me from making the post. Anyone else experience this?Jun 4, 2018 at 1:08 am #3540053
This is the error message: “ERROR: Duplicate topic detected; it looks as though you’ve already said that!” Appeared in the Gear (General) Forum for a first post on a topic.Jun 4, 2018 at 3:31 am #3540085
I had that happen once when I double tapped the post button. I believe I had to make a minor edit before I could post the content again. It was weird and seemed like an isolated event. You are not the first person to report it but it doesn’t seem to happen on a repeated basis for anyone.Jun 4, 2018 at 3:41 am #3540092
Yeah, happened to me yesterday or the day before, I forget, but it allowed the post anyway. Weird.Jun 5, 2018 at 2:10 am #3540281
Matthew that’s what I think happened – a light touch on my laptop touchpad can sometimes do that.
Doug yesterday no matter what I modified it wouldn’t let me post. Today, no problem.Jun 5, 2018 at 5:34 pm #3540358

It happens to me about 70% of the time when I try to post a new topic. I have no idea why. Generally, if I keep trying (2-5 times) it eventually goes through. Annoying, though, so if they can fix it, that would be good!Sep 13, 2018 at 1:32 am #3555649
After not experiencing it for a while, this incredibly annoying bug is back. Appreciate it very much if you could make it a priority to fix this – I’m certain it stops a lot of people from posting.
