Why do I keep getting an error alert?

Almost every time I try to post I get this "Whoops, there was an error" alert. I have to hit preview a few times and then post and hope it sticks. One time I got a notice- some spam alert thing saying something like "you posted 5 times in the last 60 seconds so now you have to wait at least 120 seconds to post". No this did not happen today so it's not an April fools joke. What's this all about, anyone?

    "You have posted 1 times within 60 seconds. A spam block is now in effect on your account. You must wait at least 60 seconds before attempting to post again."

    I started getting this yesterday. For no reason at all. Help!

    It appears the glitches are not even consistent!

    Another one I see frequently is clicking on a particular page number on a thread and getting only the banner that shows on the top of each page with nothing below it. Sometimes hitting the "Reload current page" tab gets things going again, other time I have to scroll down my favorites and bring up the site anew altogether.

    Hello out there, techies! Help!

    I've gotten this a few times in the past week. Not sure why, hasn't done it since the reformat.

    Hm. @Kat @Sea ... a few weeks? Can you ya'll at least tell us if/that you are working on fixing this? I should have checked here first, before
    Flagging my posts.. but, looks like I was NOT out of step on that dance floor. I just get really irritated at paying to use something that doesn't work.
    It's even more irritating when my friends have paid for me to post here...
    Thank you.

    I too have started receiving a "spam block" and have to wait 1 minute before replying to PMs. I have been initiating PMs and replying to them more frequently/quickly than in the past - I wonder if the system as red flagged me?

    I couldn't agree more strongly! This is the only site I have ever paid for-- beyond my ISP user fee-- including other music sites and band fan sites. With all due respect, it's more than a little irritating to pay for a site based on one of the biggest bands in the world and have these kinds of issues crop up repeatedly. It feels like business at its worst and this does not fit well with this band.

    It should be noted the message is coming up even if a post hasn't been made for a while.

    Same here - I just got a spam alert when I tried to post. It said I'd tried to post 5 times in 60 seconds, and it blocked me for 120 seconds before I could post. I hadn't posted anything else at all, let alone 5 posts in 60 seconds.
    Getting the "oops, something went wrong" page randomly too, for the past 2 days.

    It was better today - until just now. And I hadn't posted in hours. An update would be most appreciated.

    You have posted 1 times within 60 seconds. A spam block is now in effect on your account. You must wait at least 60 seconds before attempting to post again.
