I'm guessing this was your first "Vortex Springs" post. Some weird symbol ended up in there near your URL and it caused a problem. I've fixed that and tweaked the code to prevent it from happening again.
It's still not posting the new thread. When I first open up GE and enable the forum it gives me a network link error. I have uninstalled and downloaded it again and it still gives the same error. eventually it connects but not new thread. Plus, still no categories available to choose from.
