    I had the same problem for a few days. Hitting keys and it doesn't register. I mentioned it in another thread that I highjacked and no one had a solution. I did hit the button in the top right corner with the 2 "A's" in it and which helped (but you can't put in any emoticons) and then since I have not had a problem.
    Not sure what would cause it but it sure is annoying.
    As I say this it started again. Just hit the button and it has stopped. And now hit it again and it's gone. WTF

    When you are replying there are all the buttons above that give you the options to change the font or make the letters bold and such. It is the button right above the bold letter B with the A/A on it.

    Moved this to the Support forum so maybe one of the admins can see it and help. This is at least the 3rd post I've seen about the same issue.

    The forum has been acting flaky for me today too. Got on today and none of the new posts showed up, they all showed they had been read even though it was 10 hours since I had been on. And the time of the last posts in the sub forums isn't right on the main board, the last post may have been 2 minutes ago and it will show 2 hours, even after refreshing. And I've seen some posts that were deleted by "unregistered", not sure how that happens either.

    That would be because it was hacked.

    The unregistered part or the main forum last post time not matching what is actually in the sub forums?

    I've seen the unregistered before and just assumed it was the new admins. There's 5 of them and they all use the same M109R admin name as their login.

    Can you get the IP of unregistered? See if it is even in this country. Are the deletions soft or permanent?

    Doesn't always work with hackers, I had one site hacked and they came in as Admin, they were a pain to get rid of. They had full privs and had to reset to get rid of them. Took three days to get all the codes out.

    The couple times I've tried it, it gave me a user not found message. No profile or anything. Deletions are soft, I couldn't see them if they were hard deleted.

    And it gets more odd. Nemo's BMW S1000RR thread from a couple days ago showed deleted by unregistered. I PM'd him asking him if maybe he deleted it, he hadn't. Then a little later it was back and open. I checked the log when it showed deleted by unregistered and the only entry in it was where I moved it from General to OTE. Did the same after it reappeared and no further log entries.

    I checked the moderator board where there were several of them, and none of them now show unregistered. I don't get it.

    Going to be an admin thing since you won't have access to the page. Probably find some strange email addresses there that don't belong. They will need to be deleted from there. Need to check the page source in the plugin page of the admin panel.

    Try clearing you browsers cache. This should resolve the issue for you. Also if you're using IE make sure your in compatabilty mode.


    Let me know if you're still having an issue.

    This will help too. It helps clean out a lot of the crap you don't want or need to see or have following you:

    In IE, go to the Tools menu and one of the options is Compatibility View. Click on it and it will pop up a window saying you're in compatibility mode. It works on a website by website basis, so it only affects the website you are on when you click it. There is also a Compatibility View Settings option right below it that shows which websites are being used. So when you click it make sure you are on here.

    It may also say Compatibility Mode in the Tools menu, depending on which version of IE you have.
