I do preview my discussions oftenly before posting it... Whenever i need to implement some code like mylot codes into my discussions, i preview it before posting it, It gives me a clear view, and mostly i start my discussions without preiview it... So do you preview your discussions before posting it??? and why did you preview your discussions??? Cheers!!!

Most of the time, I do preview my discussions and my posts to someones discussion I am posting too. I occassionally forget, and then when I reread it, I wish I would have. And then there are times I catch a spelling error or something later I also did not see before as well. But then I have posted a few discussions in the past as well that later on I wish I could delete as well. But I figure we learn some, we live some, and then we carry on.

Just like anyone else...I preview to detect possible errors and to have a look at the formatting and emoticons I placed. But I am also re-reading the whole stuff to see if it makes sense and if the phrase arrangement is right...I have this extra care since English is not my native language. Usually it's good that everyone previews what he/she has written, so that they are not posting things that they will regret later, given that you cannot edit your replies afterwards.

No, I don't preview my discussions or posts before I post them. Because it takes so much time. Loading a page alone is taking a lot of time for me. So I try to minimize loading a lot of pages. But I reread my posts before I submit them to make sure that I have no mistakes.

I don't preview my discussions before sending. I read my response and check for any grammatical errors or spelling errors and attempt to catch them before sending. In the past when I have tried to use "preview response," I couldn't get the response to post after previewing. This is the main reason why I don't use the feature.

I do check my discussions a lot of times before i actually post something. But a lot of times I don't because I am always checking for my abc spell check or even gramar. But other than that, no not really.

hello there to U...good for you...you do oftenly preview first your discussions before posting it...well, for me, i don't preview my discussions, i posted them right away...although, there were times before, i do preview the discussion first before posting it... Well, it's really a good thing to preview first the discussion before posting it...yes, you're right, previewing will give you a clear view on what you've discussed... By this cool discussion of yours, it really reminds me that i should preview first what i have discussed before posting it... The reason actually why i don't preview my discussions anymore before posting it, because it's like i'm wasting my time... But now, this cool discussion, made me really realized how much the importance of previewing first the discussion before posting it... I think, it's really important to preview first the discussion to see the clear view, the errors, grammars, and other stuffs before posting it... But if and when there are times that you're in a hurry, sometimes you do forget to preview the discussion first due to the time limits... But it's really important to preview first the discussion before posting it, to have it a good view from all the MyLot readers out there... This is really a cool discussion...thanks for the reminder...it made me really realized its importance...have a blessed day ahead of U...may GOD BLESS U & UR family always!!!

I am usually thinking too fast to preview discussions every time I post one, ditto for responses. Besides, with my lousy vision, I'd probably miss mistakes anyway, so I just read what I see, and send it on through. My spelling and grammar are still better than those of some people on here, so I'm not worried.

I don't preview my discussions nor my responses nearly enough! I don't want to take the time, silly I know but I just want to read, spout off and move on to the next discussion. It comes back to bite me far too often however! I hate seeing mispelled words, or ones I have double typed, or just plain left out. I really, really wish mylot would include an edit function, so if there is a glaring mistake, we can go back and correct it.

I don't preview my discussion. After I write what I want to say I read it right then and there. I have spell check on the computer so it automatically underlines it when the word is spelled wrong. So after I read my discussion all the way through and it says what I want it to say I just post it.

I really should get into that practice, as I make many mistakes. however, with my slow dial up connection it often takes a few minutes for my comment to post and bring me back to another page - I find I am too impatient to wait and go through the extra process of previewing my discussion. but good for you!

When I first because a member of mylot I always previewed my posting before I sent them to post. I always wanted to make sure my spelling and my typo errors were fixed before I posted it. But now that my typing has improved immensly I don't need to preview it because I look at the screen now when I am typing and I usually catch all the mistakes as I am typing, but not always. I am not as fussy anymore about typo errors as most people get the message I am trying to relay to them.

I don't anymore. I just check for spelling issues which is easy because words which are misspelled are underlined in red. I was wondering though what the myLot code is? I see it on the screen but I've never used it. You mentioned it in your post so I'm thinking you use it a lot? How does it work? Thanks!

Previewing before posting our discussion before posting it is a good habit. But it is also time absorbing, therefore I do not care to preview the discussion before posting on mylot.com. I was feeling and facing such complex in the start to work on mylot.com, latterly I became use to work on this site and now I got as much confidence as I do not feel need to preview it before posting. I believe that this site is not only for learning but it also helping people in respect of learning. I learn to write here and I think that I earn here in shape of learning and this is really a thing or quality called a lot at mylot.com

I do preview my discussions because I learned that I make many grammar mistakes when I don't. I learned that from my very first discussions. And I can re-read what I have written, making such it makes sense for other mylotters to understand.

I do not preview my discussions, the only reason I don't is to save time. I can only access mylot from home, my workplace has it blocked, so I don't get that much time on it.

I do most of the time because I realize that sometimes how I say or word things doesn't come out right. I also preview it for spelling and grammar errors. Although, sometimes I miss a lot of things depending on how much attention that I am paying to my post.
