I just want to say, I'm getting pretty ticked off at this "Message not posted, Spamming not allowed" message that I keep getting! How are we supposed to leave feedback when the NYCM system keeps thinking we're spamming other posts!?

It is a bother, and I've been caught myself. I have zero insight into why they do this, but perhaps it helps keeps spam off the public forums. (Every so often we get spam offers for cheap counterfeit money, for example.)

I'd email feedback@nycmidnight.com and let them know.

Also, as a work-around, *always* do this before hitting Reply:
1. Select all the text in the response box, including your own content.
2. Copy to your computer / mobile clipboard.
3. Press Reply.

If you get the spam notice:
1. Refresh the page, or go back to the place where you were about to give feedback.
2. Open the Reply box again.
3. Select all the text.
4. Copy from your clipboard.
5. Press Reply.

It is annoying as heck that we have to do this--but it seems to be the way to handle the situation right now.

I think it occasionally detects a double-click or something, a la FB. Even when you don't think you double-clicked - like PennyFT, I've noticed it then posts yer stuff anyway. (one's stuff..)

It happened to me last round when I was reading a lot of scripts in one go. Very annoying for sure. I've started copying my comments just in case.

Yes. This happens every so often. Totally normal, and annoying.

They seek him here, they seek him there, those damned writers seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven or is he in hell, that damned elusive Scarlet Screenwriter! (Oh, phuck, that doesn't even rhyme!)
