I tried to post a reply to someone's comment and I got a blank white screen along with that error message.

Looks like a bug. Can you tell me what device you are using?

Thanks for the info.

Can you send me a debate or forum topic that you are trying to add a comment to?

So basically you cannot add posts specifically for that topic? Have you had this problem only once or it keeps happening?

I think the problem may have went away. I was able to post. There should be an option to log what people do on this site, and only moderators can see the log, and then if someone gets an error, the moderators can see what happened prior, and try to replicate that error, to find the source of the problem. I know other forum-based sites that do this.

Yeah, I do have monitoring setup, both for the server and client sides ( it's probably one of the biggest expenses that I have for this site ) but sometimes it's still tricky. I have some ideas though what could have caused the issue and I will try to fix it tomorrow.

Hmm, that's a tricky issue, what device do you use? Something mobile or a desktop?

Can you give me a hint about your browser? Any chance you are using Internet Explorer?

Yeah, what RM said. Internet Explorer is a joke, half of the things don't work there and frankly, I don't even bother to support it.

Apart from the options that RM mentioned, also you can install Brave browser, which is also amazing.

This is the only site I have problems with.

And only since the site was fiddled about with a couple of weeks ago.

You must not use much of the Internet if the only issue IE causes for you is with DART.

This person stated on their profile that the system wouldn't let them select their birthday. It could be a bug? Maybe someone could check it out? http://archive.ph/fxPYl

It wont let me select my actual birthday which is October 10th 2012 :(

Also, I think we should have an entire thread dedicated only to reporting on bugs so you don't have hundreds of different threads reporting on bugs, making the forums look messy.

I am afraid it's not a bug, we simply require the person to be at least 12 years old, which is not the case for a person both in 2012.

Regarding the issues, they should probably go to the `Platform development` thread, I think currently it's the best place for that.

Is there any specific problem you have with children signing up for the website?

Also, does that mean that person is going to get banned since they are too young to be on the site?
