Is anyone else getting this or is it just me?
I seem to be able to ask questions, or at least the option is there and it brings up the dialog box. I have not gone all the way to posting a question to avoid confusion (well apart from this one, obviously).
I know that users can be prevented from asking questions if they get too many down votes (or something) but I have not seen anything similar for comments?
When I click on Add Comment the box appears as normal. I fill it in and then press Add Comment. The screen refreshes with the focus now at the top of the screen. I scroll down to where my comment should be and it is not there.
The OS is Windows Server and I am using Internet Explorer 10. However, I was able to post comments yesterday and I have not intentionally changed anything since then.
It still happens when I disable all add ons - it looks like it is the same situation across all of the stack overflow sites for me. When I try via my IPhone nothing happens after I type the comment and press "Add Comment".
Have I been prevented from posting comments?
Q & A
The OS is Windows Server and I am using Internet Explorer 10. I have also tried from my IPhone and that does not work either.
Does it still happen if you run IE with all add-ons disabled?
Have you cleared the cache and closed all instances?
Not sure what clearing the cache means?
I have restarted IE on my PC and Safari on my phone.
Also, make sure that *.scifi.stackexchange.com is in the Internet Zone and not Restricted (Internet Options -> Security)
I have confirmed that *.scifi.stackexchange.com is not in the restricted zone.
Have you tried it from another browser/device? That would help confirm if it's something to do with your account.
From my PC and IPhone.
