Greetings Qui-Gon Jinn!

Hey, I just have a lil thing to say, not that it is a major deal, but when you post a new topic for example...  and you write a long half-an-hour post, and you forget to name the posts topic at the top..  then you get a message saying there was an error or something, and you can click on a link to get you backwards and fill in the topics name, the things is - all you wrote is erased. I got the same result when hitting the back button...  of course when not forgetting this itīs no problems and it really is the typers fault, but still, itīs kinda annoying when putting alot of time into a post and then it all gets erased if you forget to for example type the topic....  all the best //Qui-Gon

I agree that this is frustrating!

But that is the way the forums are, and it would be alot of development to get around that one.

One thing I would advise everyone to do, especially with a long post, is to copy the text of your message to your clipboard every so often. You can do this by positioning your mouse at the beginning of the text, holding down your left mouse button, and dragging down to highlight the text of the message. While the text is highlighted, you can then do a "CTRL-C" (control and c) to copy the text to the clipboard. If you ever need to do the message again, simply place the mouse cursor in the message box, and do a "CTRL-V" (control and v) to copy the text from the clipboard to the message box.

With best regards,

Adrian.
