I'm getting that on the discussion about Coach Scott now.
If this is like Rivals where somebody from UGA calls and instructs management not to allow certain posts, I'll go somewhere else.

    But who will set us straight about elite CB height?

    I’ve run into that too not sure what the reason is. Especially since it’s not a 6’2 and above convo on CBs

    You can just wait till it's clear I was right and pretend it was your idea.

    @WCDawg I’ve had that before too. I don’t think it is anything to worry about tbh.

    Just try again. Perhaps refresh your screen if on a PC. I don't it is a real thing - likely a glitch.

    Any pictures/memes I try to post (other than a thread I create) makes me "wait for approval."

    I think mine has to do with us making so much fun of the Vandy game and "blowing the Admiral..."

    I posted a lot of Capt Crunch memes...

    Sometime if you’re replying to a long thread of back and forth I think it’s because of too many characters, and gives you “needs admin approval” jargon. Not that it actually goes anywhere.

    It will give you that if you go in for too many edits. Seems 3 or more is dangerous.

    I don't think it's an admin thing...it's more like a systematic thing. Not sure why but I've seen that happen too.

    Straight from the horse’s mouth!

    Yeah, it’s when you post a really long post (that is often caused by extensive quotes of back and forth posts), and then you try to go back and edit it.

    I’ve gotten around it by deleting a bunch of the earlier quotes in the post. But that’s a real pain to do on an iPad.

    It’s definitely a bug in the software. It doesn’t go anywhere for approval. It just disappears.

    Just don’t edit anything that’s really long or you’ll lose your post.

    When I try to edit a post a second time the post usually vanishes into the digital abyss.

  • FirePlugDawgFirePlugDawg Posts: 5,480 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    The other time I've seen this - at times - is if I do a quote and want to add a link. Once I tried and tried (not too bright). When I simply added the comment on its own (not as a quote), the same went just fine. It is likely a glitch. Def should not wait for anyone to 'approve' it.

    Make a short post and try to edit it a few times. For me that’s always worked fine.

    Then make a long post and try to edit it. That always disappears for me.

    Edit #1
    Edit two
    Edit 3
    Edit 4
    Edit #5
    Edit SIX

    See, this post is short enough it can be edited without losing it. This is edit number 7.

    It’s when a post gets too long that you have enough trouble editing it on this board’s software.
