I can't post much of anything anymore. I keep trying to post to the 1st Amendment thread, stripping out any quotes, apostrophe's, italics. Nothing works.

Which browser?

It seems to only consistently happen when I try to post in MoS threads, which is probably for the best  :d

Both PC and iphone.   Just seems to be a quirky glitch since I can usually post in all the other threads with no trouble when it happens.

Is that the complete error message?

Please understand that vague errors like "database error" is not helpful.  If that is the complete message that you get then at lease post the time that you got it.

Whenever I try something that has the degree symbol I get this error message:

“Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator”

So now I just spell out the word degrees as in 70 degrees.

And then I couldn’t even post that message above in your thread. I originally was able to post it in the error reply thread that Eco Ellen started. But when I copied that message and tried to paste it into a new reply to this thread I got the exact same error message as above.

Perhaps it has something to do with copy/paste using safari?

Okay,  Now I'm getting an error when  trying to report my error in the ERROR REPORTS thread

Sorry to start another error thread put it here.  But I couldn't post in the Error Reports thread. 



I've been trying to post in a thread that I started.  I keep getting the same error.  2 days now.


Here is what I'm posting in the Time Travel thread that I started:   

jamers quote  But my answer is boring.  Id like to see my grandparents as children

I understand that  Not so boring I'd probably go back and get to meet my grandfather  He was a North Atlantic Fisherman  Went over the side in bad weather  They never recovered him   My grandmother  always said I had the same sense of humor as him   I'd love to have a pint of two and crack each other up

Here's what I get

Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.

How about if the degree symbol is converted to a lower case 'd'?

Of course.  But if someone forgets, the d will replace it.

It's not just apostrophes and degree symbols.  There's a whole host of other characters that trigger the database error condition.  Can't help but think there's some character set based misconfiguration at the root of this.  Fix that root cause, and all of these glitches will disappear.

I have read descriptions of how to attempt such a fix and it hurt my head.  Not something that I want to do.

My head too!  I used to know a thing or two about web server administration, scripting, and backend database management, but my fevered brain moved on to other things and I'm way out of that loop now.  trotter seems to know a thing or two about this stuff and is apparently on summer break.  Seems like a nice pro bono opportunity.  Maybe you should read him in and see if he can figure out a more elegant solution.
