    Any idea if/when this issue will be resolved? There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to when I am allowed to post, but I haven't been able to post since yesterday afternoon.

    Feel free to merge, just wanted to make sure you guys knew there were still poors out here having issues.

    If you are still having the posting error today let me know via email or message on here.

    There isn't much logic to it on our side. Doesn't much matter OS, platform, etc.

    I'll be in and out for a while this morning having to finish working on a family project. But will have my phone with me of course

    was both liberating and terrifying.

    Was thinking if my board username can never be used again, would my identify in real life also cease to exist? Would it be scary if you woke up one day and tried to leave your house and when you opened the door an error message fell from the sky saying You can not leave your home because you have left your home to many times and you must become a new person in order to leave.
    That might make for a cool Twilight Show episode.

    Good Gog Rivals ... get a handle on this. I have been trying all morning and still cant post with my regular handle.

    OS - Win 10
    Browser - Firefox

    Can post with this new account using same machine and browser so imo all of that is irrelevant. I would have to guess it is something server side. Check your logs and figure this out. Pretty damn annoying.

    Ok ... here is something else... I can log into Tenn"cock and post or start a thread on my home board. So is this a Soundoff issue only?

    Get someone on this so we can get back to our petty squabbles. :mad::mad::mad:

    I had the same problem this morning. I use Chrome. Cleared all history, cookies, etc., restarted the system. Seems to be working now.

    If you are having troubles. The first thing to do

    Clear your cookies
    Clear cache
    Clear browsing history
    Restart systemy

    This has helped some posters not all.

    Sir I am from Yahoo Customer support, and I'd like you to try a few things:

    First, can you confirm that you have power going to your device?

    Have you tried pressing the power button?

    If yes, please turn off your power, unplug your device, then try again with the device unplugged.

    If it still doesn't work, try googling "blue waffle", then come back and try to post.

    We appreciate your loyalty.

    So clearing history and restarting worked for about 10 minutes. Now I have a new stupid account.

    This is my THIRD account.
    buckpr created 10 yrs ago- won't post
    buckpr1- created yesterday because of the issue-won't post

    buckpr3- will post until it stops posting.SmokinSmile

    Hope no one else has lost TWO accounts.
    btw, if you don't see me posting for a while, it's because I'm tired of inventing new emails and accounts.

    To all of us free boarders.

    Mine was all jacked up yesterday. I took the night off and everything back to normal today.

    Give it some time and everything will get back to normal.. Believe me I know the feeling and it's not good but hang in there.

    Your original account will eventually get back right...

    It hit me a little bit ago, clearing cache let me post once or twice, then it hit again. Now I get to post again I guess.

    The wording of the "error" message tells me that this is NOT a glitch, this is an intended feature of the board. They are hoping they'll pick up some more $10/mo subscriptions, and in reality they'll just lose clicks and ad revenues from long-time posters who will leave before dealing with this crap, myself included. But the fact of the matter is that you don't write copy and program in a message saying "hey pay up or wait before posting" unless you actually intend for that to be a feature of the message board.

    Tech support is rolling their eyes at the mods right now I bet, and whichever mid-level exec was in charge of this decision has already forgotten this board exists. He signed a proposal after glancing at some numbers, and put no further thought into the issue.

    Edit: Still haven't been able to post today since like 1 or 2. Waiting doesn't seem to do anything.

    Still sending information to the powers above. I assure you they are working on it. I can't promise they are working towards a fix. But they are working on it

    There really doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to who can post and who can't. Under my original name it seems like it lets me post once every half hour or so. I really hope this isn't the end of the free board.

    Guys.
    There has been exactly 0 talk of any of our knowledge about dumping the free board. Anyone stating they know something about it is lying through their keyboard.

    Dumping? Nah. You don't dump it when you can just restrict it and offer incentives for subscriptions. It's like the message board version of Candy Crush. F2P in this case isn't Free To Play, it's Free To Post.

    After all, if they get just 10 posters to get subscriptions to stop dealing with the limits on posting, the board is suddenly more profitable to the tune of $100 a month. That probably helps out the food and cedar shavings budget that they've allotted for the hamsters that power the Rivals servers.

    Edit: Editing, since it's the only way I can effectively post right now. It's incompetence AND greed. Look at the wording of the error message. This is an intended feature of the message board. It got implemented earlier likely than they intended to, and also they messed some stuff up when they accidentally turned it on. You don't write a message like that if you don't intend to start restricting the posting of free users, period. The only other usage for that message is if they decided to allow posting on paid boards on a trial basis. Does that sound like a Yahoo!-Rivals move?

    I tried paying for a subscription & still get the you have limited posting ability unless you subscribe. So THAT doesn't work either. Now I can't even get my money back.

    The site is broken. Period

    Glad to see you posting again. Did you do anything different that allowed you to post or just a magic wand and all the sudden it worked kind of thing?

    I've been able to log in the whole time. Last night had no trouble posting & reposting. Today, I may only post when they say I can. So I tried the subscribe effort to see if the delay in posting requirement would go away. It didn't.

    But will it let you repost in this calendar year. I never had a problem posting, just having to wait an hour inbetween posts.

    I've posted 3 times in the last 2 minutes. Not getting my hopes up but that's the most I've been able to post in 2 days.

    Edit: I'm down again! Fk.

    BTW, everyone make sure when they are clearing their history, check to the beginning of time. Mine was automatically set for 4 weeks & was still having issues, so I did to the beginning of recorded history, including cache & cookies. Working better.

    Now I'll be resetting passwords & logging back into sites for a month thanks to this, but it did seem to help initially.
