    I just checked and our connection to your site is fine.

    Are you still encountering this error?

    Has the script been modified at all on your end?

    PS: I added a small tweak. Give it another shot and see if it works.

    No. I've not touched it. I uploaded the file to my root (public_html) folder.
    It's still not working.

    Alright, so I think I found the issue. I fixed the code and then submitted a test forum using the same MyBB version as yourself and it went through without any issues.

    Give it another shot and let me know what happens.

    Sorry about all the hassle.

    Alright, so I checked again and apparently there were two bugs. When submitting your site our server expects the reply "valid" to come back from your site. This proves that the connection is valid and that the credit system will function properly.

    I ran the feedback through several functions and found that it was cased by a simple white space. For some reason or another we were getting the response " valid" from your site instead of "valid". I added a short line of code into our validation parser that will strip the input of any white spaces and thereby fix this from happening now, or any time in the future.

    To ensure that this really has been fixed, I submitted your site via a temporary account and verified that it did indeed go through. You shouldn't have any issues with the submission process now.

    I'm really sorry about all the hassle. I popped a few extras into your account for free to make up for the trouble. ;)

    Have a wonderful twenty sixteen! :cool:

    Wow, I keep on following the conversations here. You are talking the programming code. It seems to me like I am in the middle of the night which it is a total darkness. How I wish I know some of those programming code and terms. I hope someday I will.
