I have a user who has reported something I've never seen before, and he's sent me the screenshots to prove it. He can respond (reply) to existing threads, but when he clicks on New Thread, he gets an error message that says "The selected forum has been removed from your list of Followed Forums. In a moment, you will be automatically returned to the forum." Then he's returned to the same forum. (I've attached the screenshot.)
I looked at his account, and his permissions appear to be normal. He's not following any forums but is following one thread in the same forum (The Engine Shop). I have not asked him to try creating a new thread in any other forums. I can do that, if necessary.
Obviously, this is a canned message from the software, so this is some sort of anticipated condition, but I'm completely unfamiliar with it. What would cause this?
Damn, Isaac, I totally missed that. Here's what he wrote in the email that he sent me with the screenshots.
"The first pic is the screenshot of the Engine Shop forum. I click on the black new thread ribbon and I get the second screen. After a few seconds, I get sent back to the first screen."
I have now asked him to click on the New Thread link AND the ribbon and let me know what each one does. I've never clicked on the ribbon, so I had no idea what it does. I'm pretty sure we can mark this problem as solved now.
