This has happened to me twice from two different computers now. I'm using firefox 3.6. I want to post a new piece of art in my sketchbook. I go advanced, type in my text, manage attatchments, upload image, close window and hit submit. It promptly tells me I submitted the same message in the last few minutes. If I go to my thread, my new post is there. However, the thread doesn't get bumped to the top of the sketchbook forum list. Also, I noticed that the official post count in the thread does not increase. If I post another message with no image, it gets bumped to the top, and the post count is updated accordingly. I don't like posting twice or bumping my thread but I feel forced to since its not working properly. Any help would be great. I just want it to work as intended. Also, if I'm doing something wrong, let me know.
I just posted in this forum about an image problem I'm having, but it doesn't seem to appear on the thread list. Now that I read your message, I wonder if it's not stuck at the bottom somewhere.

"Skill is the result of trying again and again, applying our ability and proving our knowledge as we gain it. Let us get used to throwing away the unsuccessful effort and doing the job over. Let us consider obstacles as something to be expected in any endeavor; then they won't seem quite so insurmountable or so defeating." - Andrew Loomis
I'm experiencing exactly the same problem. I added a new image to my thread in sketchbooks, but the thread did not rise to the top. What's more, I can't delete a thumbnail from my first message. Looks like something in the forum database is messed up.
I'm having the same problem.
I know this sounds funny, but try clearing your cookies for conceptart.org in firefox. Let me know if the problem still exists and I'll let tech know.
Sorry to necro the thread but I'm having the same problem too ... posted an image in the Self-Portraits section and my thread didn't move to the top & it's not recognized as being the most recent post either. I'm using Firefox & tried deleting my cookies as you suggested but that didn't fix it... Is there something else I could try?
Posts were bumping since the last check. There are a few things you should know before reporting it.
1. Editing your first image post will not bump the post.
2. Make a new post and add text.
If this is still happening when you've done 2 instead of 1 please let us know I'll let tech know.
To help us more accurately diagnose the issue please post a step by step walk through on how to recreate the problem. No step is too insignificant to include. Please include the thread in question, what button you clicked to reply, if preview was used at any point, what button was clicked for attachments if applicable, any blank screens, refreshes/reloads, if you double clicked post at any point, ect ect. Please try to recreate the issue yourself first then post the steps taken here. The more details we receive the faster we can fix the issue. Thanks!
please let us know if you get a message saying:
"This post is a duplicate of a post that you have posted in the last five minutes. You will be redirected to that thread."
Hey, sorry for the late reply ...
Arshes_Nei, I did make a new post and add text, but it didn't move to the top until I published my next post the following day (which was also an image attachment with text). But that was the only time I've had this problem ... it seems to have gone away now.
jamis0n, I posted a new image by hitting 'reply' to my thread in the Self-Portraits section (Arish in the Mirror - link is in my sig) and then choosing 'go advanced.' Then I went into 'manage attachments', and uploaded the jpeg file from my home Mac ... I don't remember if there were any specific problems that day, since it was a few days ago ... sorry. But it was this post. I don't know if that helps any?
Anyway the problem seems to be resolved now so maybe it's just one of those random glitches?
I have the same problem too. I`ve added a new reply to my thread today in "ARTISTS LOOKING FOR WORK!" section and it did not rise to the top. And when I`m trying to open this section from the main page of the forum I get "Database error..."
Today it`s working now.
I'm having the same problem too. Posted some new stuff yesterday here
but the thread is still languishing at the bottom of the stack somewhere.
Strangely enough, I can see the new post/images when when I visit the thread but my User CP claims it hasn't been updated since last year. Weird.
Problem resolved. I posted a new text message as suggested by Arshes Nei and voila, the thread updated.
I've been having that as well sometimes. I posted yesterday in the DWELL thread and my post didn't look like it was there, but it was if you click on the thread, and now the same thing has happened in the critique forum.
My sketchbook has not bumped two posts in a row now.
I get the this post is a duplicate notice and it then directs me back to my sketchbook.
I previewed the last post I made if that helps.
This happened to me twice today. It seems to happen if I opt to preview a post with an image attached before sending it. I get sent to the "this is a duplicate of a message..." error page, the redirected to my post. I then have to do a reply that's just text in order for the thread to actually bump.
