I am having a major problem asking KudoZ questions all of a sudden, even though I have successfully asked two or three earlier on.

When I submit a question (in the German-English language pair), I get the error message, "Something was wrong with your info", and it shows the question and context fields as being blank, even though I very definitely filled in both! I have tried about half a dozen times to ask the same question (about the word "Vakuumbeaufschlagung") with the same result.

Any idea on how to solve this extremely exasperating problem? I really need help urgently on this.

Best Regards

(WriteWord Translations)

It Just Got Weirder Sep 1, 2006

In the forlorn hope that the problem might magically go away of its own accord (it can happen sometimes), I have made another couple of attempts to post the question, only to get the same error message. Now however, the word and context fields are filled in, but everything below them (i.e. the "Preview your Question button" and anything else below these fields) has completely disappeared!

Something is seriously wrong here.

Incidentally, when I tried to post a reply to my own thread, the "Post reply" and "Cancel" buttons had also disappeared, but I managed to work around it by hitting "Reply With Quote" and then just deleting the quoted text.

Incidentally, the browser I'm using (if that has anything to do with it) is Internet Explorer 6.
