After laboring long over a post for advice...

Postby oledawg on Thu Jun 12, 2014 1:12 am

I lost the damn thing because my login expired.

Thanks a lot for the help. Wait, what help? I just lost an hour or so for nothing.

I'll just reload my OS yet again because it is a lot quicker than that wasted hour.

Not for nothing; you learned that if you're going to take a long time to compose a post that you'd better use a text editor to 'get it right'.

This is more of a rant rather than an actual support question. Moved to Open Chat.

That said, you are not the only one who got victimized of this time out. I learned this the hard way in another forum a long time ago. The message was lost and no amount of hitting the back button let me recover it. From that point on, I compose lengthy messages outside the forum via text editor and just copy-paste it in the forum when ready.
