    I was mindin my own buisness putting up Pt. 4 of my story on the gauge, but when I clicked "post", it took me to a screen saying I wasn't logged in! I had logged in 5 minutes ago! Well, I re-logged in, and it took me to my post alright, but it had a white backround and lookd totaly distorted! I think something on the Gauge isn't funcioning right.

    you probably got the new "look" of The Gauge. Scroll way down to the bottom and choose the Classic view.

    For what it's worth, for the last day and a half the auto login to to The Gauge has only been working on and off for me. It may be related to what you are experiencing, although I haven't had any posting issues.

    I haven't diddled with the cookies or any browser settings, and my auto logins to other boards have been 100%.

    Other than being a bit slow, I haven't seen any problems logging in. Occasionally, the page I want doesn't load, and I have to go somewhere else, before returning, at which time the page comes up.
    We are looking to change servers, so bear with us....it's the price of getting heavily populated :wave:

    Sorry about that, these are really strange problems. I normally don't log off so I wouldn't notice them. Pete is right, we are suffering from a case of "glotus Maximus", or an overloaded server so I guess you can figure just about anything can happen, and usually does.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Yea thats happened to me more than once on the gauge, So heres what I do: If your going to type something long, do it in Microsoft word and once your done just copy it, go to "Post" and paste it in there.
    Hope this helps:thumb:

    The entire story is on a Word document. I've been doing exactly what you have just described when it comes to posting that story!

    I guess that explains why I kept getting logged out whenever I tried to PM one of the members of this forum.:curse:

    And all this time, I thought I was very boring.:D

    I guess patience is the best approach here.
