Posted:What Skully

Go to "my home" and find the "My Cookies" and click on "expire cookies".

That should do it.

Or it may just be you're clicking on the continue button more than once... but I think that just results in a double post... so maybe not shrug

Posted:try to kiss him more than once, that may work tongue

i tend to get that problem when a post already exists in that thread that is identical to the one you are posting.


We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:Hmmm. Did you put a space before the lil icon thingy?

Sometimes I get 'post already exists' if you are just posting a graemlin... so you put a space before it and it works.

Goddammit. I'm on here far too much.

Posted:shut up, yankee boy.

i meant, if you've already used that single gremlin in a thread, then try it again, it won't let you.

don't complain about others misunderstanding something until you understand what it is they're misunderstanding.

my great grandmother knew all about graemlins, so i'm much more qualified to talk about the than you anyway.

so tongue

Posted:Neeto. You actually can't post the exact same post that's already been posted.



Even if it's not a graemlin.



So HoP posts are like snowflakes... none identical to any one before. Well, at least in the same thread.



I guess I never noticed because I'm not trite enough to post exactly what the person above me said.

You did not replicate my post. You did not prove me wrong.

As always.
