I am having a problem with regular double posts when replying to threads. Is it possibly an issue with my laptop or is anyone else getting this problem? Any ideas please Charles?

Thanks,
Jim

I find I do it sometimes (using an iPad). I figure I double press post button but I usually spot it straight away and delete the duplicate.

It is possible for someone to delete one of their own posts by clicking on the "X" next to the quote and edit functions (top RHS of the post).

I usually do that if I remember and I am quick enough to delete it before someone else reads it. After that the delete option disappears.

Edit: it just did it again and I was extremely careful when clicking to submit the post. Also the double post does not show immediately even though I am given an uploaded copy of my post. I have to leave the thread and come back to it again to see if it has doubled up or not and then delete the duplicate.
