    Strange one, I'm getting multiple alerts for the same message. It started today and has happened a few times. If someone quotes my post, I get an alert message about 2 or 3 times for the same message.
    Is there a problem somewhere, or is it only me? :unsure:

    I had that yesterday as well. I assumed it's because people were editing their message, and I got an alert for every edit (the message in question was indeed edited a few times).

    According to Bram we updated some PHP stuff yesterday, so it's likely related to that. It's still not working properly for me but we'll fix the issue asap. :)

    Don't know if it helps, but I just received one from Stuart Thompson, 2 alerts, after reading the first one, I went back to the Forum and it jumped up to 3 alerts. Yikes!, they're multiplying. :D

    EDIT: Ok, it might be something to do with the original quoter editing. Stuart just edited his post (with my quote) and now it has jumped up to 5 alerts. Now 6, got another one from the same quote this morning).

    Edit 2: And now 4 alerts from Senad. :p My cup runneth over. :)

    And Stuart edited his message at least once. My theory stands!

    EDIT 1: 2 alerts now?
    EDIT 2: 3 alerts now? :D

    Not completely Senad ;)

    I just received 2 alerts from a like. 1 like, 2 alerts, no option to change.

    Second, I received 2 alerts for a quote of my post somewhere. I viewed it, went to another section of the forum, and got the 3rd one. Nothing had changed, so I believe the post was not edited....

    Couldn't create a thread so i'll put this here: double posts have appearad a lot lately. I got my first instance, it didn't refresh after pressing submit, you can click at it multiple times before the post shows itself in the thread. Just happened to me, i clicked submit, nothing happened.. I then just refreshed the page manually and the post showed itself right.

    EDIT: Happened again, the exact same thing.

    Hate to say this, but I just got another double alert, this time from the "p" less Thommo. :whistling:

    I guess it's not fixed yet.

    Guys we are aware of it and are trying to find the reason of this odd behavior.

    I am slowly getting back into things. We will have it all figured out. In the mean time I would appreciate all feedback.

    I don't get too many. But now the alertbox is gone?

    EDIT: Lol, no. Just me being blind. As usual!
