Why can I not comment on MakeUseOf?

josemon maliakal September 18, 2012

I have logged in with my Gmail account in MakeUseOf. When I type comment and press ‘Post Comment’ it shows ‘processing…’ then shows an error message “You might have left one of the fields blank, or be posting too quickly.” What to do?

    2 reasons:

    1. You're a new commenter; your comment has gone into moderation. The message is not very helpful though, I'll change it.

    2. You managed to post the comment, but didn't wait long enough for the error message or success, and now you're trying to post the same comment again, leading to the cooldown error.

    Yes, even I got a message that said I had to wait before commenting again, even though I had not commented once!

    I think MakeUsOf just changed cookie settings or something. It happened to me as well.
    Fix: Delete cookies

    Copy your entire comment into the clipboard and refresh the page. Sometimes the post times out and displays that message but it actually does the post. See if your comment is there. If not, paste your comment back into the comment box and try to post it again. If it didn't work the first time, it should work the second. I have never had to try posting a message a third time.

    If you have been spamming comments at once, just wait for about 5 seconds and try posting then. If not then try using another browser, if not you can try refreshing the page.
