    This site does on occasion continuously reload. I don't know if I am the only one that experiences that, but if I click the "stop" button on the browser it will finally stop. I just have to make sure that I stop it when all the content is loaded :p
    Happens on my laptop running chrome browser.
    Very frustrating.

    Same with Firefox. Just press stop. Go back. Click a different link. Then hit back. Should correct it.

    Thanks, I was trying to think of where to sumbit a "complaint" about it. Glad it wasn't just me. Or maybe that would've been better :/

    I've done that boss. Did a full wipe on Firefox. Happened 2 weeks ago every day. Haven't had a chance since.

    Please drop a line on any stuff like that to your nearest friendly mod, or post it in our Suggestion Box & Feedback forum (bottom of the home page, but tops in admin attention).

    Thanks! :)

    Just an fyi on complaint:

    This site on the Acer A500 using motel wifi was the pits. It was the only site that had a real problem with time. I would see my name as logged in, try to post 2 seconds later and found out I had to log in again. Most of the other forums I belong to worked just fine. Yahoo groups worked just fine. I could read everything and could access most stuff here when logged in stayed connected. Boat Browser doesn't have NoScript.

    It was also a PITA to type over everything. Copy and paste didn't always work.

    I don't want tapatalk, I looked at it, read the specs, and decided I didn't want it. I'd rather use the browser for forums.

    This isn't the only v-bulletin site I belong to. The others were working.

    Back home and on the laptop. Everything now OK. I do use NoScript on FX or Pale Moon with no problems. Will have to re login if I take too long to type, but at least login goes through. The Acer is stock ICS. I'd like to know if this is an Acer problem, ICS problem, tablet problem or what?

    I'd like to know what was going on.
    I have other software that isn't supposed to work with non-stock OS and works great and won't work where it's supposed to. Seems to be too many wacky variables.

    Are you ticking the Remember Me option when signing in? You'll be signed out for inactivity after a certain period of time if you don't.

    Also please make sure no "www' makes it into the URL, and if it does try to identify where and let me know.

    Heard from another - when you click on the link of a subscribed email, it adds a hashtag and that takes you to the last post and an endless update loop - removing the # from the url seems to make it stop.

    So in the email sent from the forums, is it possible to stop them adding that hash tag? I'm still getting constant reloads when viewing from my browser.

    Removing just the # symbol will break the URL, as you've found. I would try removing all of '#post5087826' as a temporary workaround, as that won't break the URL.

    I understood that there was an extra hashtag, maybe at the end.

    I'll try to recreate it, this is all second hand from me.

    I'm basing what I said on the URL TheAtheistReverend posted, which looks like a normal permalink URL with no extra #:

    I often end up just using the phandroid app when this happens. it is just frustrating I can't reliably use the links in my emails.

    The browser version is working fine right now. I can't figure out how to consistently recreate the problem.

    I do find it hilariously ironic trying to read or post in this thread while it is constantly reloading.

    Just to cover all of the bases, what email client are you using? Thanks!

    Gmail is the email client always, and so far I have seen the reloading on My DInc2 running Paranoidandroid CM10/JB Hybrid on the stock browser, CCM7 V1.5 stock browser, On PCs running IE (not sure of the version as it is at work, I do know it is NOT 9) on XP, Chrome on Win7 and it is happening now on Chromium on Ubuntu 12.04. Though it is constantly reloading right now, it is barely disruptive, just annoying. I am obviously able to type this out at the moment. Every other time I look up though I see the icon in the current tab show as a the Chromium progress circle and the screen flashes/blinks.

    Well the reloading loop just happened to me for once, but I think it was because of me tethering....not sure why it happened, lots of weird things happen when tethering metroPCS......

    Just to try to help provide a little more data and maybe zero in on what is going on?

    Windows 7 / Android 4.0.3
    Firefox / Stock HTC browser

    I see the constant reloading somewhat frequently, especially with "new posts".
    I casually mentioned it here in passing.

    When pressing the go to last post button ([​IMG]) shortly after a new post has been made (within 2 minutes?, 5 minutes? not sure - after a certain amount of time it won't let a reload loop happen anymore) the post will sometimes not appear or sometimes the page will be sent into a reload loop. Not sure what the cause is, but to me it seems like something might be out of sync or does not update right away and takes a few minutes to catch up (database?).

    Go to last post button and Subscription links use the same #post123456 format on the URL. I'd imagine if you try a subscription email link right after a new post has been made I think it would cause a reload loop just like the 'last post' button does for "new posts".
    As Xyro mentioned before in post 15, removing the #post123456 stops the reload but disables the ability to jump to the newest post and most easily keep up to date on a thread.

    Log in time 'lapsing' could be a factor. I don't save log in info/cookies to my browser. Log in lapses may cause some sort of disparity, but it may be a side issue.

    I accidentally recreated this by following the permalink (#post123456) to a deleted post while not logged in. The page refreshed every few seconds. This was in firefox 16.0.2 on windows 8 x64.

    So, not exactly the same trigger as previously discussed here, but the end result was the same.
