    Lately I have been experiencing difficulty posting to certain topics. When I click in the box to start typing a response my iPhone browser crashes and I get logged out of Realjock. If I log back in and try to post to the same topic again I get the same thing happen repeatedly - funny thing is it only happens with some forum topics. Has anyone else experienced this and are any iPhone browsers better than others for using the website?

    Have you tried a different browser?

    I had this exact same thing happen with my iPad when I tried to reply to certain posts here about a week ago, and I posted a thread about it. It never was resolved, except I think a certain member was posting content that somehow crashed the iOS, which is the same for both iPhone & iPad.

    I often cannot log in to RJ on a Verizon 3g cellphone, even though the phone tells me at the time that it has excellent 3g communication ability. I have pretty much given up on trying to log in to RJ with a cellphone. Most weekend days, and a lot of evenings, it was simply impossible to log in, even though it displayed forum topics that were available to non-members to see.

    Do let us know. It remains a mystery to me why my iPad kept crashing, when I tried to reply to a certain RJ thread. There's never a problem with my iMac.

    I use Rj all the time, such as right now, using a moto Droid razr HD. Everything seems to work just fine.

    95% of my replies come from my iphone or ipad. I haven't had any problems staying logged in or posting. However quoting and formatting is a PITA! Using ios6 and Safari.

    Try using a Samsung Galaxy S3 with Chrome.

    It's cherry!

    after being on this site for a couple yrs through alot of different portals, and devices, i have to say i think the site's code just has some random functional issues. maybe affected by the number of visitors/users at any given time? sometimes i can't respond to mail, sometimes i can't leave pic comments, sometimes i can't submit posts with pics of videos embedded, like up to 40% of the time i'm here,

    i have a desktop on a screaming fast cable modem at home and it's probably the worst, verizon 3g iphone still seems the best, and ipad somewhere in between, depending on the network i'm using, and i've had a dozen different browsers, and it's still just random.

    As I noted in the other thread I linked above, my iPad crash problems last week were isolated to replying to just a couple of threads. First and only time it's ever happened to me.

    It occurred exactly the same way that ozgreenguy describes in his OP, when I began to enter text in a thread reply window. A total crash of iOS Safari would happen. And only for certain threads, same as with him. So apparently it isn't an isolated problem with my iPad alone or his iPhone, using the same OS, but rather something someone is posting to RJ.

    I do have problems with my windows 8 desktop, but it isn't confined to just RJ. I have exchanged it once, but now see that I'm having some of the same problems with this one.

    Unfortunately I must report that the same topics are crashing suddenly no matter what browser I use. As others have mentioned, maybe it is something to do with the content of some posts?
