Is anyone else getting "page not found" messages when trying to reply to a post?

I was doing something much like that when I got knocked off the forum for about an hour. After 3 consecutive 404 events, the page times out, and will not let me back in for about 60 minutes. It's happened before, and I just now got back on. 

Same thing was happening to me (forum was inaccessible for about an hour) when I was experimenting with my problematic paragraph earlier.  I was wondering if I was actually crashing the forum website, or was it only me.  But I didn't see anybody complain about the outages, so I assume it was only me.  I wonder if the forum simply blocks, for an hour,  the IP address which is making it "sick".

I verified that your paragraph (properly assembled) causes a 404 error for me too.  I also shortened the paragraph and got another error I was seeing in my own earlier test.  The following text (shown in red), when I click "Submit Reply", will cause a popup window to show up stating that the post no longer can be edited and hangs:

I've never seen a bench seat in a 356 as in the interior shot of the blue roadster.  I need to research that. It probably gets its "outlaw" moniker due to the mild visual departures from stock.

Make sure to preface it with: Beautiful selection of cars there.

There sure are some bugs in the forum's software!

^^^ Excellent that you were able to reproduce the same error-message and "can't edit" behavior exactly as I experienced it. 

Some wizard programmer ought to get some insight from that, eh?  ;)

Kinda puts paid to the idea that "too long" posts were the trigger, or that inclusions of photos or other graphic material were the cause...though of course, they may also be.

I got the 404 on a new message last night. Tried it several times (it stays in the window when I bring up the New Topic), no joy. Finally gave up and copied it all into a word document. It wasn't that much text, but it was eight photos from different files, which took a while to load. 

This morning the message was still available in the New Topic window but it still wouldn't post. If I have time tonight I'll try posting it one line at a time (or maybe deleting one line at a time); that's worked for me before, more or less.

I just got it again in replying to a message. 

I tried again, and this time I left out a parenthetical question, and it went through just fine. Could it have been having a question mark, a close parens, and a comma in a row that caused the error? :blink:

You might be on to something. Typing a RH parenthesis preceded by a capital B gives a smiley face in the text on this site, so if you're giving a string of examples, they need to be 1),2),3), etc. Caps followed by parentheses wont work (for B anyway).

Had the same problem, Bill. If you add a period after typing upper or lower case "B", followed by the RH parenthesis,

b.)

that stops Smiley.

The smiley face emoticon makes sense. Certain combinations of letters and punctuation represent the codes for the emoticon.

I get the 404 error/page not found message every time I try to start a new topic. I can reply to posts though, but can´t start a new one :(

Hopefully the 404 error will. Go away after the big update Sat.
