I keep getting this error whenever I tried to make an edit or post a question/answer:


Yet, my edit goes through. I am not sure why this happens to me and what I can do to fix this. Any recommendations? Google wasn't giving me any exact reason.

    Have you checked the status pages on the SE network? Also your dev tools console for errors? Maybe you have been receiving time outs? From a quick check on your profile: You are fine and "a model citizen" and not blocked by a ban. – kaiser Oct 1 '16 at 22:36

    I get this kind of errors because my wifi is not very stable. – Mark Kaplun Oct 2 '16 at 11:11

    @kaiser The reason for my error was my unstable WiFi. Thank you everyone. – J1. Oct 2 '16 at 14:50

This message is generated by a client side script called post-validation that is called after you have submitted something to the server. The script sets a time-out for hearing back from the server that the submission has been received.

When you are on a slow (or irregular) connection, the script will always time out and you will receive this warning. It doesn't necessarily mean, as you have found, that something actually went wrong.
