I finally 'lost' a discussion here...

...and by 'lost' I don't mean I had one deleted. I mean 'lost' as in that sucker disappeared and I have no clue where it went and could find no way to retrieve it. But I assume it must have been 'operator error' because a side-screen opened up showing all kinds of stuff, which has happened before when I bumped certain keys...but when I closed it out, the myLot page was nothing but a blank white page. I didn't even have the black bar across the top. So I don't know where it went...off into the depths of the Interwebs somewhere, or maybe to another dimension. This was last night...I didn't try to rewrite it, and I probably won't today, either. Guess I'll just save that idea back for later.

It surely went to the other dimension, I agree with Sabrina.

I bet a penny on the other dimension. That's why I never write a discussion directly on the box here, you never know what may happen.

Yeah, I've suggested to others that 'lose' them often to write on notepad or some program

@JolietJake I've never lost anything but prevention is better than cure.

At least I'm not the only one this has happened to, I had half a comment dissappear last night, luckily I was able to rewrite and edit. Not nice!

I take it Scar wasn't somehow involved? One of my cats once stepped on my laptop in such a way that it took me over an hour to figure it out and fix it.

It could usually be blamed for web glitch which affects the newly composed post to unable to be displayed and it yields an error. In that case, I have to press the back arrow to let reappear what I have just composed and it worked. Another way is to write in a separate "paper" like a notepad or a word and then copy-paste to the comment or writing box of the site.

As I explained, it was not a 'web glitch' and the back arrow would not do anything except take me to the previous page

I've had that happen. After writing the post, I usually don't have the energy to try to recreate it.
