Posting Smilies Bug
This is a bug and site suggestion
Ive noticed that when i post to the site and accidently put to many of the smilies that my post is said not able to be posted due to this fact. When i hit the back button to fix this my post is completly gone and i havent found a way to get it back... Is there a way u can add a button to go back to the post we made or just take us back to the screen with the text and have a red error message at the topc to let us know...
i posted a good 150 words and i completly lost it due to the fact i had to many smilies in it...

Gee, I have lost posts simply because my connection is so slow. Not even using smileys

I have done this. One way I make sure not to lose everything is to highlight your post before you submit it and do a copy. So if there is a problem you will be able to paste it and not have to retype.

Casper is right. Simply Ctrl+C and if anything goes wrong you have a backup copy to just Ctrl+V in here. Or another idea is that you type everything up in notepad or word (assuming you use Windows), and set aside a .txt or .doc for just posts on here. When everything goes through correctly then simply erase the notepad or document.

I guess it pays to keep the simile spam to a minimum.
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

Perhaps it is his way, of saying you smile too much.

Whether or not your post still exists when you hit the <--- back button on your browser has nothing to do with our site, and everything to do with your browser. Security settings, cache settings, the plugins you have and/or use, etc. etc. all effect this.
Sorry, but it's something that I just don't have any control over.
