When I try to post to a thread, I keep getting this message. Is there something I am doing wrong?

You must be copying and pasting from something else. If so, then some of the characters are "bad."

The ones that give me problems are the following...

'
"
-

You must find and replace them manually before UBI accepts them.

Whenever I get that it seems to be code for " Boy is that a **** connection your on or what?".

Many times I can just go offline, reconnect, problem solved. Other nights, just give up and get back to the important stuff like becomming a fireball.

Thanks fellas. Yes, I was trying to copy something from notepad. I'll try retyping the message.

It also doesn't like it if it thinks you are trying to submit a forbidden word.

I once had it reject something I wrote in note pad because it contained attacks / hits, without the spaces or the bold.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - G√ľnther Rall

Blair-if you have multiple email addresses, you can write your original, well thought out and spell checked draft in Notepad or Word & then copy & paste into one email account, send it to another, and then copy & paste into your post. Apparently, this strips out all the extraneous crud out of your post, and makes it acceptable to the forum server.

It's a little complicated and time consuming, but for long posts where you want to limit your online exposure, it's the way to go.

Tried to recopy it several times but no go. Then I retyped exactly as it was in notepad and it posted. Very strange!

I get that same error every time that I try to edit one of my posts. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Asked here and then sent an e-mail to UBI's help centre. A couple of weeks later and I'm still waiting.

This is both strange and very frustrating. I even started a new account hoping that would fix the problem. By the way, my original posts are usually not "copy-pastes" jobs.

hmmm strange.....I have no problems copying and that other stuff. Only time I get this is when I accidentally erase the quotemarks when quoting.

Did U forgot "caps lock" on? or maybe the board is busy?

I have never had this happen before either. Don't think the board was busy. Tried it last thing at night several times then again the following day several different times. Caps Lock wasn't a factor since I did some editing after copying. I removed all ",' etc. from the message and made sure there were no bad words.
