Thread: Frustrating experience posting a thread

    Thumbs up Frustrating experience posting a thread

    It took me forever to post my review of Gabrielle Luv. I wrote it three times! Why? Because if you take too long, you have to sign in again, and then if you hit the back button to submit your thread one too many times, you lose it when you hit the forward arrow.

    You have to copy your thread before signing in again or risk losing it all. Has this ever happened to you writing up a long review?

    Daringly, I felt like punching the computer! I was took me forever to write my first review and I lost it! Now I know for future reference to hit <control a> (select all) and <control c> (copy all) before signing in again.

    Thank god it didn't happen during my review of my time with Samy...

    Word? And risk having some backup file stored in my computer? No way.

    GG, just use notepad. It doesn't make backup files.

    Strange - a couple of times I got a timeout message when I hit 'submit', and thought I had lost the post, but it appeared anyway.

    I have had similar experiences. Now before I hit post I select all and copy first. After it is posted I just clear my clipboard. No worries.

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    Talking Use NOTEPAD

    That's what I often do.
    Start, Run, Notepad, [ENTER]

    No trace at all in the computer.

    *very* useful for posting the exact same message in more than one board/forum *ahem* I don't do that *cough*
    ...larger than ever
    ...but divorce had me lose weight...I can see the tip now!

    Sometimes I simply write the long text in my email as a new message (that I never send), copy and then paste. Never failed, no trace.
