  • Cannot create new thread in events

    I've been trying to create a new thread in events and keep getting a 403 error. Tried in Chrome and Safari on OS X

    Do we have some restriction on who can create new event threads?

    This is a Magnus question and I will be sure he sees it.

        I created (and deleted) a test thread in Events, and it worked fine.

        Can you try again, please, and report how it went.

        I can then use the time stamp of your report to check the logs.

          Any approved member should be able to create a thread.

          Magnus, you sign in with more rights than others so if he still cannot post you might create a test membership with the standard rights.

            This same thing happened to me back in 2007, but in the Idle Talk section. REF: here
            I have no idea what caused it, or what cured it later - it simply was no longer a problem the next time I went to that section. Today I Googled "403 error" and got some interesting results.

              Still getting a 403 error on creating an event plus I havent been able to access the site at all for the last 3 days (404). Tried on multiple browsers, connections and devices that are both logged in and logged out.

              The specific create thread error I get is below (from 7:55 am today)
              Forbidden

              You don't have permission to access to this document on this server.

                I just looked at your user profile from my administrator account. I compared the settings with some other members and cannot see any difference.

                I just created a new event 'TEST' without any issue and clearly others are able to as well.

                So I have not a clue what is causing you to not be able to create a new event.

                Passing on to Magnus.

                  I debugged the site not loading issue and find that I can now access the site at work and on 4G but not at home. Pinging the server from home is getting the right IP address(38.113.115.112) but all packets are timing out.

                  I wonder if the hosting provider made some network changes that are taking time to filter out to edge networks.

                    And I figured out why I couldnt post a new thread - I was trying to create a new thread with 4 embedded images which it did not like. I cut that down to one image and everything worked again.

                      There is a limit to the image size you can upload. I don't know about the quantity of images.

                        These were all embedded images hosted on Flickr so size was not a problem. Most sites will have a limit on the number of images (4 on usa7s) - its just that this particular version of the forum did not specify the error which along with the DNS issue made me think that the site was having issues. Thanks for looking into it.

                          That's a strange error message for an issue that could be clearly communicated.

                          I'll check what the limit is.
