    Hey ella,

    humm, I missed this the first time. That Error usually occurs when the thread/post you're submitting is empty (the body not the title).

    When does this usually happen?

    Usually if I've quoted something or posted a link

    It's because things in tags like [QUOTE] or [URL] don't count as text. You have to post something outside the quote or link as well.

    test

    EDIT: Links do count as text, apparently. But you can't just quote someone for a post.

    I wasn't just quoting, thanks for looking into it though :)

    This seems pretty odd! Have to say, I'm not sure why this is happening when you try to submit a 'not-empty' reply..

    All I can say for now is that we're upgrading the boards software soon, so hopefully that'll solve it!

    If it happens again, maybe it would help to see the exact post. Actually, do you have any current posts this happened with? And did you have to change anything to get it accepted?

    It's happened quite a few times in the last book you read thread, when quoting someone and inserting a link. I had to leave the page and then start again.
