      Or use "Contact Us" to the left...

        I have tried to get into the chatroom for two weeks now, and I keep getting an error message that says I    must login,but I am logged in.

        I"ve seen that message before, frustrating just like my inability to post pics which after the longest time and giving

        up time after time after time, I can do it now again. What? 

        There are a few things glitchy here at times..pm's, page missing info, posts missing...emoticons missing, inability to

        log in....Todd will say clear your cache but sometimes that's not the answer that works for everyone. 

        I know you've been a chat room visitor for a long time...you would imagine by now you know how to do it...so when 

        simple things become a problem for long time members, used to doing things quickly and easily around here...pics!...

        it is VERY frustrating. 

        Try clearing your temp files or maybe it's a different browser you need...I'll tell you what I think about that answer though..

        usually it's Todd's suggestion for some problems.....why run a different browser when the one you're accustomed to worked

        in the past? I don't like that. Before I get the rush to make lp great again...I AM NOT complaining...just stating there are 

        a couple problems from time to time and when it's something out of the blue, you have to think...what did TODD do??

        RIGHT NOW...LP is running fine for me....and I'm a happy member.

        Good luck.

        Ask Todd.

          Thanks, Laverne did contact me, and there is something wrong with the chat room.  Hopefully I can fix it before next Sunday's chat session, but I'm not sure at this point.  Sorry!

              On occasion, though not lately, my browser will stall when posting a new message here - never have such an issue anywhere else. Chrome indicates "waiting for available socket". I suspect the issue is related to scripts and other resources being served from a Lottery Post related domain, such as the main domain, LP.VG (Todd owns it), or maybe even AWS cloudfront, etc. I don't have the knowledge nor the tools to say for sure, but something is different here than other sites I visit. Hopefully, Todd can figure it out.

              Overall, LP runs fine the vast majority of the time. However, best to save a copy of one's message when posting on any website (even if just to the clipboard; not 100% fool-proof, but good enough) before clicking Post button.

                Nope, that is not from Lottery Post.  There is no socket coding here.  You should scan your PC for viruses or other malware, and be sure you are not running any toolbars or other browser plug-ins that might be communicating with remote servers.

                Also, there is no need to copy contents of the editor to the clipboard.  There is an autosave feature that saves the editor contents automatically, even if your browser crashes.  You just click the "life-ring" icon on the top-left of the editor toolbar to restore the editor contents from the last time you were using it.

                  HTTP connections utilize sockets. Both servers and clients limit the number of open sockets in total and by resource. When LotteryPost would stall, all other sites continued functioning normally. Presumably, if malware, virus, etc was causing the issue, I'd experience similar trouble elsewhere, but never have.

                  Chrome users may view such technical details at: chrome://net-internals/#sockets

                  The life-ring is useful, but not infallible. Does it protect data through browser crash / after closing browser? Definitely nice to have though, nevertheless.
