    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.

        Oops, you can put quote marks in your posts.  Definitely a glitch then.

    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.
