    ^ Just noticed this myself. Trying to find some of my posts comes back with no results found. If I go on my profile to find my posts it says I don't have any content.

    Seems half of my posts are double posts the last couple days.

    Out of curiosity, how exactly are you posting?

    I've only double-posted once and that's because I was impatient/not paying attention and selected "Post Reply" while my comment was still loading. I've noticed refresh rates are kinda screwy when your comment gets pushed to the next page.

    I honestly have never gotten a double post before unless I got impatient and hit the post button more than once, or had local connectivity issues. Been curious how it happens for so many people so often.

    It might be related to the mobile version of the site. It tends to load very slowly sometimes when posting.

    Using the quickly reply field at the bottom of the thread, pressing "Post Reply" once. I'm on Google Chrome with a Windows PC. Often times, I'll see several copies of the post until I hit "refresh," then it'll drop down to two. I'd say it's my browser, but it is happening a lot more often since that hiccup in the database a couple days ago.
