    I can't paste my PS into the forum, as I get this message when I try to post it;

    but the mod told me not to attach the file so the reviewers don't have to download it, so what do I do?

    I would not recommend posting your personal statement online unless you have already received offers from universities, it may be detected by CopyCatch otherwise and you 'could' be rejected for plagiarism. If it isn't letting you post the text, perhaps you could take a screenshot and then post the image of it?

    I was trying to post my PS in the private forum that TSR supplies for statement reviews.

    Ohh, sorry about that confusion. Could the server be getting confused by you pasting the statement and is only recognising it as a single character? highly unlikely but worth a shot, try to paste it in sections and see if that helps?

    You're most likely using quote marks.

    There's no quote marks in it, and I've tried it in segments too! Still get the same error :s


    I've just managed to fix it, I have no idea why, but TSR was making part of my statement a hyperlink, so I deleted and retyped it on the forum editor and it finally posted. Strange!

    Where were you coping the statement from? IE was it a Word document, or google docs, or an email etc

    I'm going to quote She-Ra PQ and Captain Jack because you're not the first poster I've seen with this issue so there may be a problem somewhere

    I've no idea what is technically happening

    For anyone who encounters this try just typing in "I will paste my PS in here" to get the thread created - you can then either edit that post or reply to your thread to add your PS in once it's up and running.

    I was pasting in from a word document, but I tried pasting in from a pdf conversion which worked, but ruined the formatting. Now I'm just waiting for a response, but my post says awaiting user response, which is odd.

    I think you just need to say if it's your final draft - you've earlier said something about a bold paragraph, so just explain if that's finished or what your queries are

    Strange - although, I think I've encountered this bug once, somewhere on the site. Usually, all I have to do is remove a character and then replace it, then it should sort itself out. :yes:

    I'll just tag a TSRG Staff member to have a look at this for you

    I think I mentioned that it's nearly my final draft and that I just want it reviewed, should I delete the thread and make another? It's a bit of a train wreck tbh

    No, keep the same thread. Just maybe edit your posts if you think it's confusing
