How to avoid double posting

Seeing a lot of people end up with duplicate threads. I've noticed when posting a new thread you'll often get a popup error. Usually the thread still gets saved. By hitting "Post" again you're just submitting a duplicate.

If you get the error, click the X to close the white popup msg, CTRL click "General Discussion" above to open the forum in a new tab and confirm your post got submitted before posting a duplicate.

  • I don't suppose you know why I can't seem to post my own threads? I assume it's because the forums don't think I own EABF or something (which, unfortunately for me, I do).

    Good suggestion. I was about to post a thread asking if skirmish will be in this game.

    Rule #6. Don't necro bump threads from people criticizing your unorthodox posting behaviors.

    Necro bump? Criticism is welcome homie.. makes for good discussion. Just try to stay on topic instead of criticizing the person who started the topic. That tends to be against community guidelines as well.
