I have been trying to post a reply in a specific thread for several days now and all I get is "Please wait. Processing..." and it will do this indefinitely until I close the post attempt.

Any ideas?

Post length or a missing quote tag are the most likely suspects. Borked thread is also a possibility, but a slight one. You do have enough rep to be posting links, so that one is not an issue.
Yah, mah first guess is borked tags; haaappens to me frequently (quelle surprise?).

Double-check any tags you are using (for italics, quotes, etc.) to make sure they're all closed. That's what it usually is for me. Other than that, there's a (rather large) character limit for forum posts, so if you were trying to post a giant wall of text, that might have caused the hang-up. And including certain all-caps swear words also will not let the post go through (so I hear, anyway).

10,000 characters, to be precise.

Didn't know about the all-caps swear words, will have to experiment a bit about that. :P

Well, it's already been established that "TURD" isn't one of the <i>verboten</i> ones. =D
(They added those "SHOUTED OBSCENITY" blocks about a year and a half ago after a handful of topics with titles [url=https://www.gog.com/forum/general/fuck_fuck_fuck_jizz_cunt_asshole_blowjob_cock]these [look to the URLs...] were created in a short amount of time.)

Oh, yeah, I definitely remember that. But I thought they just changed the thread's titles and didn't know about all this automatic anti-profanity system. xD
I noticed that on certain threads, if your first word is all in caps, posting fails. Tested this like 5-10 times total and in 2 different but very specific threads, this was the result each and every time. Or it appears to do nothing and the posting appears several minutes later. Some people have tampered with forums lately, with consent from gog, COUGH! Either that, or stealthy "filters" have started being installed, to be evolved in chains&shackles, sorry, heavy moderation i mean, that certain "charismatic" individuals desire...

You have a great imagination.

Bored already, messier Necromancer? This isn't old and dead... Or did you change habits, already? Man, you work fast, i have to give you that...

My imagination said, among other things, something like JerkMut... Oh, well, whatever, there would be no fun in spoiling things to others!

Also, a giveaway thread i started before wouldn't appear, even if i pressed that damned button like 20 times; to the point i got forced to contact gog support... But somehow, halfway, it got solved by itself. Maybe forum bugs on its own sometimes, as well. Or bugs from some people's actions. Whatever the case, there is something fishy going on around here, lately. Smells of... Nah, never mind.

I was right the first time.

Glad you admit that the second time, you are not (right) ^_^

Thanks for answering indirectly, much appreciated! Now we know what is amiss.

I get this all the time, Please Wait, Processing and it hangs there (no incorrect quote tags or broken formatting).

This is with Chrome; it seems to do it if I'm quoting the same person again or posting the same thing.

* I'm starting to get the feeling someone doesn't want me to post here.

I'm sure there are plenty who may not want you to post. You can be abrasive. But Hell, don't let that stop you. Some people can't handle the truth. Others can't handle people talking to them in any way except rainbows and sunshine.
I did not have swear words (especially not capitalized) and I always watch out for the character limit in posts, sometimes breaking a post up into multiple posts just to be certain.

So my suspicion is that I somehow messed up the tags but it is weird this is happening just now and even in posts which contained NO tags at all (my most recent attempt to reply to a post directed at me in a thread).
