The FLWBC changed my password at my request. This did not work. Does anyone have a solution to this vexing problem?
Thanks in advance for whatever suggestions are offered.
I hereby volunteer to become a moderator here - with the only idea being to change the posting rules, and to delete spam.
Who can I talk to to try and fix this forum? Currently it is broken beyond belief - and did I mention I am a web developer? I have no experience with PHP, but how hard can it be to admin a forum???

I too have been having problems with several PHP bulletin boards and the problem that you are describing.
It is frustrating!
Two things you should try until this annoying bug is fixed:
1) Are you using AOL or some other lesser known product as your web browser?
If so, please try using the web browser that was supplied with your computer to respond to this bulletin board, perhaps MS Internet Explorer or the Mac equivalent.
2) If this is not your problem or it is problematic to use another browser, then try hitting the preview button before submitting your response. This quite often works for me. Sometimes it does not. Do not be afraid to hit the submit button multiple times! I do this quite often and usually by the fourth or fifth time it will surprise me and suddenly work.
I use an iMac with Safari. Not sure if my computer is at fault (though this problem didn't exist here six or eight months ago, for me).
Hitting "submit" multiple times resulted in multiple copies of the post, on another popular design site, a while back -- in that case, experienced by several users. The site server may have been the culprit.
I am interested in the various configurations of PHPbb-powered sites; I visit four with regularity and each has different combinations of features enabled. One has the bare minimum of features, and the protocol for posting images varies from that used here and elsewhere. Interesting. The whole thing's a bloody miracle, anyway.

FWIW, I use a Mac with Firefox, and have never had any problems posting. I do have to log on after a reboot, and first get directed to the index page.
Strange there would be so many odd experiences with some but not others, but then I know nothing about these setups.
