When you hit "submit", watch the progress bar in your browser and hit "Stop" in your browser when it has reached just under a quarter full. I noticed this helps to cut the number of duplicates back to one or two as opposed to 3 or 4.

Also, if you are the OP of a thread that has posted multiple times, you can delete the extra threads before they have been replied to. Click to view the thread, and in the top right hand corner of your message will be a grey "X" in a square. This will delete just that one, not all, so it may be that you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get rid of the extra threads.

Good to know!

Now... How do we get our new pics to upload without it telling us that it's a duplicate photo?

I just got a PM from Health telling me "FYI, BUMPing is not legal and a moderator may delete your post". Just wanted to let you know! I think it's kinda silly, but they have the site. icon_sad.gif

OP, thanks for the tip about how to stop duplicate posts. I'm sure CC appreciates us saving them the bandwidth......

I wait about 5 seconds, and then hit the reload button.

I'm just counting off 10 seconds before hitting the stop button.

the ol' one thousand one, one thousand two, ..... on up to one thousand ten.

or

one missisippi, two mississippi, ......on up to ten mississippi


so far, has worked every time
