    If I try to put some reply in a rep, sometimes it won't post :(

    Please could you let me know if it is purely a problem of mine and how I can solve it if so?

    ^Plays up for me sometimes. I've got popups blocked, and it sometimes decides rep is a popup and starts playing silly buggers. I find holding down Ctrl as I click on the rep icon solves it. Might help... :unsure:

    It happens to me too, and unless you refresh and check for it you won't know since you can't see reps given in your user cp anymore. :weep:

    I use only Firefox and haven't had a single problem in delivering my empty rep hits. Are there any people using Firefox who have experienced this problem?

    I'm at work using IE. Soon the torpedo room will have the next salvo of Mk 45 Negs ready.

    I'll let you know if I have any problems. :)

    That's the first rep I've been able to give out in about 5 minutes. I tried repping Tex, Dicky, and Dan and none of them would take.

    Someone please fix the retarded Rep hiccups!

    Recent reps might not have been functioning because...well, it was busy the last few minutes. :bergman:

    If you hear Hindu-accented screaming, I apologize for that, as well. The gag must've slipped. :blush:

    You must keep trying, it's the only way. You don't want them to win do you? DO YOU? THEN GET BACK OUT THERE AND TRY AND REP THOSE PEOPLE YOU WERE TRYING TO REP!!!!

    Just found something:

    Try to rep somebody, but before you submit it, move the mouse down the whoever's name is below the post. The rep box goes away and an options box for that user appears as if you actually clicked on their name.

    I bet that's causing all this. :)
