Default How to avoid having a long post deleted when you hit "Submit"

Ugh, getting frustrated here. Both my posts have been eaten by the forum/ internet. I don't really want to keep writing them and have them suddenly show up in triplicate. *sighs*

whenever you write a long post, try to remember to copy it to the clip-board before you hit "submit" (heh heh ). Then if it gets lost, all you have to do is ctrl-V to get it back.

Thanks Neon, but neither of my posts were long and while I'm sure that is helpful for others, I don't feel that I should have to copy and save a 5 sentence reply just in case it doesn't show up. I was just expressing my frustration at losing it twice after an already frustrating day. If the internet won't except it 3x than obviously I wasn't meant to share.

wow that is fucked up. it never happens to me on this forum but it has happened to me on other forums where it makes you type in a CAPTCHA spam-filter thingy.

You still might wanna do it as it only takes two seconds.

Also, sometimes if you just hit the "back" button, your post will still be there and you can try it from there.

Sometimes we think a lot about what we're going to write, and even though the post isn't long, if it's been a while with no activity since logging in, we'll get timed out. So-o-o-o...

Whenever you login, be sure to check the box next to where it says "Remember me." Then, no matter how long it takes to write a post, you won't be timed out!

Yes, and (depending on your browser, maybe) you can usually go back to what you wrote when you use the "Back" button.

Don't forget to log out after you do this, especially if you're on a shared or public computer. Otherwise, anyone who goes to polyamory.com will be logged in as you, if you forget to sign out.

Just curious ... Does anyone know how long my session will last before I get timed out (if I don't check the "remember me" box)?
