a full stop etc are illegal only for the title. This sometimes appears on its own for descriptions too, although such ‘illegal characters’ are allowed there. Write to the help center. That’s how mine got resolved.

Today I got the same error, and when I removed this character, it posted my request: >

This is so irritating and stupid!!! They said illegal character without telling which one is illegal.


Same problem its so STUPID!!

I’ve spent 15 minutes editing the description, however the error still popping up.

The way I solved this problem was to remove the “.” and then carefully copy or paste one or two lines at a time…save…and then move forward until I was able to fully describe the gig.

Just Remove dot it will allow you to continues… Have done it and it allow me in

Hi, I have been though this same problems, and I have realized that using a little space before initiating a paragraph is considered as a invalid character, so be careful

The same thing happened to me! It turns that you can’t use the exclamation point ( ! )
