Difficulty posting news/review comments from TA app.

Lately (and only recently), when I attempt to post a comment on an article, I get an error 12 (or -12, I forget). It says something about not having posting privileges or something to that effect.

I always logged in with my username. Has it switched 100% to Discuss (I have one of those accounts too)?

Any idea what an error 12 or -12 is?

Thanks in advance.

I just tried and it still works fine for me. Are you sure you're logged into the TA app?

If this posts, you have your answer. I'll upload a screenshot later to document the issue.

Is it possible you've been banned from front page posting? I know that is independent of forum privileges.

I too can't post on the articles from the TA app. Also when I log into discus through safari it won't let me comment on articles either HOWEVER when I log in to discus on my PC I can post on any article I want. So I don't think it's a ban issue (and I was never notified of such an issue).

In the end its frustrating to want to add to the conversations but have to wai till I'm back on a computer.

One more. Since almost a week now cannot post replies with the app. If I reply with an image for example, I can see the image under "User CP > Attachments" (when checking from my Computer). I don't get any error. It just doesn't seem to do anything when hitting the final submit
