I have been a victim many times of disappearing page after I click the "post discussion" button and I can not retrieve back what I have written on the comment box. So every time I write a comment, I always copy and paste my comment to a word document before I click the "post discussion" button. By doing so, all i need to do is to retype what I have written in case the page disappears saving my thoughts hence I don't need to re-think and compose again but still a hassle to retype everything. I have read several discussion on this issue that I am not the only one who experienced this difficulty. It came to my mind that it would be better and useful for all of us mylotters if mylot will add a draft save mode feature in the comment box so we will not lose our thoughts which we have written when internet hiccups occurs or anything that causes the page to disappear. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it's possible? Would it be beneficial to the majority?

I copy and paste what I feel may get deleted and it works out fine for me. I am not sure if that will work for you or not. but you may want to give it a try.

i completely agree! i was a victim of this for many times. it was quite annoying really especially when you are very into the topic and that you posted so much already. then suddenly it disappears. so bad!

It would really benefit a lot of mylotters if mylot would include this feature, it would not only save our time and effort but it will also save us from getting annoyed :)

well, me too.i think that because the web connection, not from mylot. i rewrite my comment, cause hard to retype from another text to mylot. you must retype less than 500 character.

Yeah, that's why I thought of the draft save mode would be helpful for users who haven't reached the 500 posts yet.

That drives me crazy. It happened today when I was trying to add a pic to my discussion. I think from now on, I'll start my discussions on Word then paste them to MyLot.

That will work with you as you already reached more than 500 postings....it's better to be careful so as not to waste our time and especially the thoughts we have on that particular moment won't be the same on the next minute.
