Disappearing draft posts

It has happened to me several times when a draft discussion submitted for preview simply disappeared. In each case, I have never recovered the draft. This problem is all the more painful because it cannot be preempted with the copy/paste facility for a non-500 posts members. Does this happen to other members, too. Is there a way to recover such missing drafts?

It happened to me too my friend, several times and I really hate typing again but I can't remember I ever recover it. I really think sometimes because of the low internet connection or sometimes mylot have a system upgrade that's why our respond was not able to go through what I did if it happened to me twice in a day my I really sure my 3rd respond will be copy first to word file before I submit it and if it disappear at least I have a copy and will not typed again.

Thanks, Maribel. However, I learnt that the copy/paste facility is not available to certain grades of members. All former efforts I made to copy my drafts with a view to pasting it back in case of disappearance, have failed. Now that I have 7 stars, I will try the facility again to see if I have qualified.

It may be hidden for awhile, and then come up. I too have had this happen. Or, MyLot may have deleted them.

Thanks for your insight. I will try and see if some of them are still recoverable.

This has happened to me several times. I will get to typing to fast and hit a wrong key or something. When you get to 500 responses then you can write your draft on micro word or a simular program and cut and past your posts or discusion. That is what I do for long responses.

Thank you. I got that useful information later. I still have a long way to reach the 500 posts level. Meanwhile, the disappearance of draft posts still occurs, especially when the web link is poor.
