"Failed security check"?

Postby Atvania » Tue Oct 08, 2013 4:52 pm

I tried updating one of my Factbook entries today, but every time I click save, it says "This request failed a security check. Please try again." so I cannot update my main General Overview entry.

I'm not sure if I'm using too many words, or there's a server problem. I will have 5161 words when I update it, and that's only about half of what will be the final entry.

Thanks in advance.

The usual cause of security check problems is switching nations in tabs, or even timing out while typing (which sometimes is hard to tell if auto-login is enabled.

Perhaps try getting it all ready in Word or Notepad and then transfer it to the browser to prevent any chance of timing out.

I cannot recall what the character limit on factbooks is, but I would assume it would give you a specific error telling you it was too long.

Something like 50,000 or 60,000 if memory serves me correctly. Gimme a sec and I can go look it up. :P

EDIT: 60,000!
