Does this happen to you too? I'm writing a reply to a discussion and you go to post and then a window comes up saying you lost your connection. Then you go back to find the discussion and you can't find it and it didn't go through at all. Then I'm trying to find the person who started the discussion and I can't find them anywhere. I'm so upset both for this happening and because of the discussion. It was about a little 4 year old girl who was beaten and raped. Which that alone is making me cry.

I use Chrome and when that happens I hit 'back' and get evrything back again. Can you search for the discussion? Or would it be in any of the tabs above?

I searched but can't find it. I will continue to try but I thought the writer was listed as a friend but it appears she is not. If she was I would be able to find the discussion. Thanks and have a good day.

hni diana and lelin I have Mozilla Thunderbird email that i work out of and get an open window into mylot while a copy of the discussion I am responding to is still on my email so if I lose the response at least I will know the discussion i was last working on. I have had that happened to me several times,you hit post response and get a page that says the page is unavailable blah blah check your browser, then check in responses and my response did not make it. but then I go back to Thunderbird and check and there is the discussion at least so I type a new response again in mylot of course.

Hiya Hatley, That is a really good idea. I usually hit the back button and I can find it again but more often than not it has gone for a walk the whole lot of it. So I keep my e-mail open because of this too and hit delete after I have finished posting. Great idea though.

I wouldn't mind so much but I don't write just two lines its always 4 or more and usually these discussions that disappear are the long ones. I just don't understand the problem.

hi lelin 1123 oh yes I have had it happen to me too, I had made a great response on a discussion I was really into and the same thing happened, a window comes up wrong page,blah,blah, and I go to responded and it never made it, now I do not know how to find the discussion as it did not go to responded,If I just happened on it fine,but most of the times you cannot find it for the life of you. Other times I rewrite the darned response and find to my horror that it took the first time and the second too. yes I get angry and upset because I was really into what I was doing. I have found one way out of that,work from your email then go to mylot , then when you lose the response go back to the last discussion that is still sitting there, that's the one you lost the response on,so you can at least try to respond again. hope that helps I have a new email dealie with Mozilla Thunderbird that lets you hop back and forth between mylot and your email due to having a number of tabs. or windows open. neat really neat.

Thanks I do work from my emails but sometimes the discussions are not interesting so I go to mylot directly. I will have to maybe befriend everyone that I respond to first.

Sometimes when I try to reply to topics, a blank page loads. I have to go back, retype my message, and hope it goes through. I try to copy what I type every time. Just in case that glitch happens when I make a long, drawn out reply.

Ditto but it doesn't work for me at all. I don't know why. Thanks have a great day.

Usually when I hit the "Back" button it comes back. When that happens I copy it and try to post again, that way if I happen to loss it, I can just paste it in.. I don't know why this happens, but if you are also losing what you wrote, maybe get into the habit, (though irritating, can save you frustration),of copying before hitting the post link.

I'm going to try the back button because I can't seem to copy my discussions at all. Thank you!

I hope that helps you. I remember back on my other computer that whenever I hit the preview comment link, I would loss everything and have to start all over. And when you spend a long time typing only to loss it all, it can be very frustrating..

I search and search and couldn't find it. She wasn't a friend of mine so that is why I couldn't find the discussion. Thanks anyway.

Hi lelin! The name of the member was carolscash. I actually just responded to her discussion about the child. I understand your frustration and it makes me mad too. Take care and good luck finding the discussion. I would send you the link but a previous response showed it wasn't working for you. Take care.

Thank you I knew it was carols something but it looks like she is not a friend of mind and that is why I couldn't find the discussion or what the interest was. Do you remember what the interest was?

Hello Lelin, yes I feel your anger. This happened to me twice this week. What I started doing was typing up my conversation either through my email or through the notebook and then once I am finished I will go in and copy and paste it to here. I found that this is much easier because then if it doesn't take it I will just do it again and then once I know it has gone thru I will just delete mine until I want to start another discussion.

Well I thought this was only happening to me. As I can see from so many responses I'm not. I will have to try to copy from my email and see if that works. What I think I have to do too in case the copying doesn't work is write down both the friends name and the interest so hopefully I can find them. Thanks!
