Too fast with what?
I clicked your nick, then clicked the PM icon, then typed my message, which was about 4 lines long and took about 10 seconds to type, then hit send - and got this.

No, that cant be it because I remember once I was really pissed off because the browser does not cache the text and I lost quite a long PM. Since then I always copy the text to clipboard before sending a PM on this forum...

I get it many times, it is annoying but it is a cache/cookie issue with your browser (i was told on here),
I get it cause i log in with 4 different devices or so i thought...

Found it http://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,60673.msg483841.html#msg483841

Not so sure where to too fast comes in to it though, i could be outside with the dogs and just so happen to
look at WW on the weather server and go to answer a post (nothing else has been done) and i then get that
issue.

Do it on my phone and its fine, sometimes after 2 or 3 tries like Jachym, it will work, other times i give up :)

I frequently get that error too, only on this forum. Really annoying as you say because it loses the whole message you have typed in and you have to start again. Also like you I now copy the message before hitting 'post' - when I remember :(

I just tried sending Niko a one letter message and it worked. I have been using the PM system here for years now and have never seen this error. I normally use Firefox on Linux and do have quite a fast connection although on rare occasions I do use FF on W7 and its not happened on that either.  The cookie thing mentioned in Bashy's post could perhaps play a part but again I have never cleared mine out deliberately and usually my FF profile stays across system rebuilds as I use the same /home directory on Linux and save it on Windows prior to updating.

Cookies may play a role.

It is true that I access the forum from several computers, but if thats the problem then it is I would say a bug of the SMF forums because it should not behave this way

I say too fast
because if you repeat (starting with a re fresh of the page) and do each step slowly then the error does not occur
i.e its an auto anti spammer mechanism in the forum I suggest

Not sure that is the case Brian. Often I take 5 minutes composing a reply, hit send and get the error, that is when it is most annoying as you lose a lot of hard crafted text #-o

I can confirm this Brian, it happened to me with very long PMs that I spent several minutes writing

Can't get much faster than my and Stuart's single character, no subject, PMs. It's some kind of glitch but it's hard to imagine why some of us have never seen it  :?
