Greetings and thank you for having such a thread in existence :).

I'd like to add that more often than it should, whenever I try to submit a post, I end up in a page that says 'Invalid Request'. This is recurring and I would usually have to keep going back to the previous page and resubmitting it at least 10 times. Sometimes, I'm at this for half an hour and still it doesn't submit so I just abandon my long, elaborate post which I had put so much effort into crafting altogether.

Is there any way to mitigate this problem? I have a sneaky suspicion it might be due to my connection.

---

Someone also mentioned the 'quote' issue. I have a similar problem whereby when I click on someone's post to quote, it doesn't produce the relevant code.

--
To add, certain symbols automatically change to censor stars or random letters when submitted. For example, the symbol for [shift +,] and [shift + .] changes into > and < . Hopefully this will be fixed!

Peace be upon you and thank you very much :)

PS. The 'Invalid Request' page is coming up for this post too. Here comes 5 minutes of me resubmitting :P

The & (etc) issue is a simple fix for any developer at Jagex: the content is being escaped twice.

It should only be escaped once, though, and should be a simple matter of removing the first instance of html escaping and leaving everything until the last minute to escape, provided the developers haven't got half of the content stored correctly and half of it incorrectly.

If that is the case, though, whoever made the change should spend their afternoon fixing the build they broke :p


Is it the same with the [shift + ,] keys?

*sighs* The Forums have always presented itself with some really pesky bugs that take ages before it's fixed. Furthermore, there's not much content to the forums as well. I feel like it's being seriously undermined.
