Guess what happened to me? I spend 30 minutes writing One of my logest discussion starters. I clicked "preview" to check it and realized i forgot to upload a picture.But when I cliecked "edit" EVERYTHING WAS GONE. Not title, not even one sentence. Why, I ask? T-T I was so mad I turned my computer down for 2 hours_

Hope you get to 500 soon. Mylot should look at this rule though, it was frustrating when I started out too Pompon. I put some of my discussions into microsoft word or notepad so I won't lose them. Mylot is also getting picky on not letting posts go through despite the absence of vulgarity/profanity.

That royally stinks! It's happened to me many times as well, though! My problem, now, is that I forget to copy and paste so having over 500 posts does me very little good!!

This has also happened to me some times when I was below 500 posts and I know it can get really irritating. I used to really hate this. But since now I'm over 500 it's a relief. But still I really am very careful. I just copy my discussion before pressing the post response button so that I have my back-up if anything goes wrong. Ohk friend hope you will reach 500 very vey soon.

I hope so too^_^ Copy/paste is very usefull option but I tottaly agree with mylot staff that only advanced mylotters should be able to use it. Because otherwise many people who come here only for making money could simple copy other articles/blog entries/news etc. and post it as their own, so they would be able to earn easily. Now htey have to work for themselves:P

If you forgot to upload a picture, you can still do it. Let the topic get posted. Wait for someone to respond. While commenting on that, you can upload the picture, though it will be away from the topic.

Yes,Copy & Paste is a better idea.But you can only do it after 500 Posts .It is strange however that you lost the whole Discussion Matter.

I think it's a mylot bug. It just don't support things like page backwarding or refreshing - everything you wrote is lost then:/ Have you ever tried to edit previed page?

It always happens. I was a victim to it too. I confidently began replying to a discussion and i almost did a half page long article. I accepted to post the response. But the next page did not appear and it got jammed in the middle.I waited. Then i decided to hit the refresh button and nothing came.I hit the back button and here comes my long response.It was gone.To hell!I started typing again. made it shorter.Posted the response after copying the response.It got jammed again.Hit the back button and tried to paste the saved article but to my misery I came to know that this privilege was reserved to only those who has posted 500 replies. AAAAAAaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!

That totally sucks, I know. So much effort is wasted:/ Well, all I can say is that I know your pain and you have to work hard to reach 500 posts and be able to copy and paste your texts...

I can't wait to hit 500 too! Although I've got a lot further to go than you do. I've had a couple of cases where my response hasn't been posted properly, and I've lost my entire post. It will be nice when I can copy each post before I upload it, and be allowed to paste it in case it doesn't load properly. It will save a lot of time compared to having to rewrite the entire thing! It is frustrating!

Retyping isnot for my nerves, either:/ And don't worry about deleted posts, it happens to all myloters from time to time (i know it has happened to me, too)
