"The solution you provided was incorrect" first post attempt.

Mon Jul 04, 2022 3:32 am

I'm getting the
"The solution you provided was incorrect" on making a trouble shooting post in Pico thread.
Could only find one post on the forum and it was potentially solved by creating a none complex post posting about it the forum error here.
So trying to see if the issue resolves it self in the exact same way :P

It could also be that you needed to leave your first post for some time to have it approved by one of the moods before it would then appear in the forum, you should then not have any problems with following posts.

I have seen posts from others saying they got the error on the first post but once approved no further problems.

Getting this as well, in Safari on OS X, so I'm trying to reply here instead of generating a throw away first post of my own.

Even if you started a new thread it would not be thrown away you just have to wait for a moderator to approve it , as they did with this post.

Me too. So do I just wait? Or try to contact a moderator?

Update: Hmmmm, OK. Just replying here, and then re-submitting the post now works!

You just have to wait for your first post to be authorised by a mod, it can take a while depending when you post it, once authorised you can post freely from then on.

Your first post must have been authorised if you can edit and update it.

Hi.

All you had to do was to wait for your first post to be reviewed by a moderator and then authorized, this is all that happened with your post on this thread , it just takes time especially as you were posting a 5AM when most people in Europe / UK will have been asleep.

Again, your first post must be moderated, and does not appear instantly, it isn't a bug or "issue"

The first post needing to be moderated isn't a bug, but the "solution you provided was incorrect" message just happened to me in the general forum as well. I can neither preview nor submit a post there without getting that message, which says nothing about moderation. That's a bug.

I submitted a post in the "introduce yourself thread" which did submit and which showed as needing approval. I just tried previewing this post and got the "incorrect solution" message. I'll try submit now and see if the message shows as needing approval as it should.

Edit: Interestingly, this post went through but my other in the intro thread is still pending approval.

Nope, after your first post was moderated, and let through all further post like your post here viewtopic.php?t=224841&start=4025#p2033718 will be let thru automatically, except for "whiny fud & complaints" posts, which will be deleted, by any moderator, that get complaint about your post for other irritated users (see the flag icon) .

Posting here is not a right but a privilege, irritate moderators enough and you will get a short ban, irritate some more and the ban will become permanent. Try to create a sock-puppet, and it will be deleted and all its posts! we know how to identify sock-puppets!

Have you not read the thread , there is nothing to fix all first posts need to be viewed and moderated by one of the mods to help prevent spam,
once this is done you will be able to post , this can take several hours to happen depending on the time of day and which day you post.

As your post has appeared in the thread this must have now been done.
