Since a few minutes ago, I haven’t been able to submit any answers on Stack Overflow:

Screenshot of error

This seems to happen on every question; I tried using both Firefox and Chromium. According to my profile page, I’m not blocked from answering. The question isn’t deleted, locked, or closed. I can comment fine. What’s going on?

… well, I assume it’s happening to everyone, since the last fifty or so questions have gone unanswered.

    Heh, shouldn't this be one of the first tests that gets checked before code is checked in? 1) PostQuestion() 2) PostAnswer() – Travis J May 5 '14 at 17:13

  • Gah, I thought it was just me not having enough rep to embed images, so converted them to links then though I hadn't the rep to post 6 links so I gave up.. – OGHaza May 5 '14 at 18:38

Who knew that being able to post a question doesn't guarantee being able to post an answer?

I will answer posts and write some PHP as penance.

    Answering discussion is fine... PHP is too much. We should save it for something really bad. – Braiam May 5 '14 at 17:33
