Same for me. I copied a pgn and got this errormessage. After removing a piece of the header it was solved. I found it a pity as I was't able to show some interesting data on the game (e.g. place where the game was played, name of the tournament,..)

After nearly 2 hours I finally discovered what the problem was!
I didn't have any words in capital letters so I'm sorry to tell you but you have a BUG in the system...
The problem was the addresses of the pictures (chess diagrams) I was using and for some unknown reason it accepts diagrams from certain websites but not from others although both use the same fen style with capital letters.

Someone should look into it because it's a hassle... you get a message telling you about an alleged error you've made although you haven't.
You need to have different error messages for different things, it took me ages to figure out that the problem was picture-related

Plus, this link is much better (but isn't accepted by the website) because you can simply take a fen code and paste it in the address bar after "php?" and you'll have a diagram without needing to physically create it which makes it much easier than most diagram creators!

There's an admin setting that restricts caps to 4 letters, I think, presumably to stop those annoying subjects entirely in capital letters. I can increase this if there is sufficient demand? Undecided

I had it too a few days ago, drove me crazy. I was trying to quote someone, and apparently the [ followed by a letter in caps was enough for the post to be rejected... in the end I simply ditched the quote.

Yeah, I had the same recently too. One word caps, blew me out.
