What does ping mean and why did I get it when I tried to post a reply to a question about angels? I saw the preview and was instructed to submit. When I clicked submit, I discovered that the reply had been posted twice.
Weird coincidence. I just got the same message when I posted a reply to a forum post just now. I thought that it might have been to do with the fact that I'd tried to put quotation marks in my post. I deleted them and made the relevant text italic, and my reply posted fine. Maybe it wasn't anything to do with that though, if the same thing happened to you at more or less the same time. Maybe it was just a system glitch.
I've been getting that too, some sort of problem it seems.
I don't know, I got it yesterday too. I posted but got ping. Then I did posted twice more. Eventually, after about 15 minutes, all my replies showed up. I have gotten it twice this morning, my posts haven't shown up yet. But in this thread it seems fine.
something amiss again. I got the ping too when I posted, and yet it posted, but it doesn't register on the board that it was posted.
I was getting it too yesterday often and found I had posted four times in a thread. LOL I had to delete the extras and just tried to live with it. Crazy! PING
I had no idea what this forum was about until I just got the same message a second ago and remembered seeing this topic! LOL

Got this message on trying to post a reply (tried posting both to the thread and to the poster): The BBCode syntax in the message is incorrect. Quote tag missing end bracket.All brackets seemed to be in place, as they should be.

Two days ago, I tried to post a question... it never posted. I tried again the next day; again, my question disappeared. Today, I can't even answer a question. What is happening? Am I banned?

Why doesn't HubPages show when an article is posted as a reply to a Question anymore?It used to be that when you posted a hub as a reply to a Question, there was a statement along the side of the article that said something like: "This article is in response to ..." and then show a link...
