    Sometimes this morning when I click the "Thank" button't it tells me I don't have sufficient privileges. Even when it works it reloads the whole page.

    Something odd is happening. Opera browser, v49, 64 bit, in case that's relevant.

    I think it's glitches in the system as there are other problems too.

    The gap you leave between post has increased to 60 seconds (anti-spam measure I presume) and now when it does finally post I'm getting "This is a duplicate post, you will be directed to the thread" appearing.
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    Ooh, I just managed to "thank" you, but it reloaded the whole page again rather than just the little bit of javascript updating the number.

    The same thing happens when using the tick function on the competitions forum. Seems to be an intermittent issue when I checked this evening.

    I have tried to thank a few posts today and I get redirected to this message.

    ScarletMarble, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    I go back and the number of thanks remains the same.

    Anyone know why this is?

    I've had that issue when trying to remove thanks from posts, as per the thread I started here on the Site Feedback board a while back.

    You would think MSE would have cottoned-on to the idea of a Board Feedback forum where technical issues could be discussed and maybe resolved...?

    Here too. Varying between "Insufficient privileges" and the page reloading if I click "Thanks".

    I'm also having trouble refreshing new posts. Tells me I have to wait 15 seconds, even though I'm not doing it frequently

    On a positive note though, clicking the spam button seems to be deleting posts really quickly now

    Yes, I had similar trouble a couple of times.


    It does seem to resolve itself.

    I think it is just because you are grumpy and it knows you don't really want to thank anyone!

    Glad it's not just me ! This glich is a real nuisance - have resorted to just clicking red cross rather than muck about with thanks & entered buttons

    A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realise how blessed you are.

    Rarely post, usually browse the forum, clicking the thanks and tick button in the Competitions Time board causes both the permissions error message and clicking both buttons causes the page to refresh.
    Which board or sub-board are you trying to post on when it happens?
    Competitions Time (including Compers Chat Corner)
    What browser and version are you using?
    Vivaldi 1.13.1008.40 (Stable) - based upon Chromium version 62.0.3202.97 code and engine (as does Google Chrome).
    Which forum version are you using, the old green or the blue?
