Have tried no less than 8 times in the past hour to post to the current "Mandalay" thread. No dice.

Tried everything: refresh, reopen browser, etc. Meanwhile the BS threads are right up to date.

Explain.

Have just tried again since this obviously went through.

Still no dice.

Mandalay thread still not working, though everything else appears to be.

Thanks, Dave, but I just tried it again (last 60 secs.) without luck.

Is it because I'm including three blue clickies to YouTube?

The black "cut & paste" versions won't work either.

Try doing each clickie as a separate post !

Lighter, that is indeed the reason, long known. The script does not allow more than two links for GUESTs (at times even only one - presumably Max experimenting). Understandable to a degree, given the inclination of spammers to post long lists of links, but definitely "impolite" to slam the door without comment. I guess (hope) it is not on purpose; would not be the only bug. Mudcat transparency policy is zero by tradition.

I believe the number of clickies for guests is limited because spammers post oodles of them. You should be able to post them separately, or post the non-clickable addresses and a mod can clickify them for you.

You could always join Mudcat. It doesn't cost anything, in money,privacy or pride.
