Often unable to post from work connection
« on: April 10, 2018, 02:56:25 PM »
If I make a post from my main school's connection, I'll often receive a message that someone from my IP made a post within in the past 5 seconds. And then if I hit back to repost it, it'll tell me that someone already made the post, but no post occurred either time.

I assume this is a case of the external IP that gets logged being one that's either shared for my whole school or shared with many schools. But either way, the website shouldn't register failed posts as posts that actually occurred and went through.

Note: I'm currently connected through a VPN to another country to avoid this for this very post.
