Have you ever lost a long MyLot post with an errant (stupid) click?

I was five paragraphs into a post about "I Fall in Love too Easily," a jazz standard recorded by the likes of Miles Davis and Keith Jarrett, when I clicked the "go back" arrow. I did so because I wanted to hear a bit of both versions before I decided which one to link. Unfortunately, I wasn't on YouTube. I was on MyLot, and wound up losing my five paragraphs. When I forward clicked, they were gone. So now, this will have to suffice a my "Good morning, I'm still alive" post. Have you ever lost a bunch of work via a bone-headed click, or power outage, or a kitty settling in on your keyboard, or a toddler greeting you by "helping" you type? Now I have to go to work grumpy.

LOL, I remember in the old mylot that it happened so frequently that I would actually write my post in a word document and then copy paste it into my mylot discussion box. I tend to be long winded and all of my discussions are long. Sorry that it happened to you..

I can sure see where you would be grumpy. I never have that happen because I always write my posts in a notepad first and then cut and paste it into the Mylot box. Works well for me.Then I just note on it when I posted it and I keep it in my 'Mylot' file.

Of course! The fuffy ones we just throw together and post. The thoughtful ones we do a little side research on, find the perfect photo for, etc., increasing your risk of hitting the wrong key or icon. Sometimes I post before I'm really done, then add stuff right after.
