Not able to post an answer?

kimbo20_cy
Hi, wanted to ask a possibly stupid question..
After opening a thread with a previous question of mine, I can't reply to the answer given or even use the "Answer the question" option. Every time I hit submit the post just disappears.
have tried different browsers, tried logging out and the logging back, clearing the cache, restarting. Been trying for a couple of days now. Any possible suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time!


**Oh forgot to mention, after copying my answer that disappeared, I reposted the same one, it sais my answer is duplicate of a previous one and won't be accepted!

    I had a very similar issue, I couldn't post at all, it kept forwarding me to page that said my question already existed. I emailed tech support, it took them about 2 days to get back to me, then another few days for them to tell me it was fixed, and sure enough I tried it out and had no problems.
    So, what I'm saying is, email TechRepublic's tech support.

    Got FireFox?

    I cannot post answers in FireFox about half the time, but IE works fine.

    If the post has a URL, you MUST take out the dots or it will go poof and not post.

    Asking for clarification never ever works in FF for me.

    With Firefox I can start a new discussion or question, no problem.

    try refreshing your page, it may show up then. Also, are you posting a link within the response? Some links won't post hence stopping the post from being made in the first place.
