Well alot of people here had commented before that we should have an Edit option to check the spellings.Now when we have that option a lot of people are felling that it is not good. Well I guess it is hard to satisfy each and every consumer or user in this case.

yeah, it would be nice if we had the option to preview or submit. I have never once gone back and revised my response, so thus far it's been pointless.

Yes, its slowing me down too, i like because its makes me correct the error of my posts but its slows me down, and i cant post using my browser ie because its in a javascript link, so i am using a different browser for mylot.

ohh ok...i'm using firefox so didnt encounter any compatibility issues..but sometimes after previewing it returns to the homepage without posting the response!

I agree with you. It is time consuming. I suggest that they only have the edit to give also the respondent opportunity to correct their entry but no longer to have a preview. I presume that before the respondent sends a response he/she reads it again to check if its ok. On the other hand maybe they are doing it becasue there is a provision to allow us to attach a images that is why there is a preview.

Yes it is slowing things down a bit but then again many members had been asking for an edit function and that is really what this is. I used to read my responses before posting but there were times when I missed a typo or something like that. I think it is just another thing that we will get used to in time and accept it as normal but right now it is new to myLot. :)

yaa true...but even if it stays..i think it should be optional..and the page transfers can be a lot more faster...just like before!

Well I am new, so I don't know how or what it was like before. But, I do think it's quite annoying when you have to PREVIEW your post.

Yes, that is the one thing that is annoying me about this new set up. It is slowing me down a lot, I wish there was a way to skip it.

yaa..lets hope mylot does something to skip it!

Yes. It's irritating. A preview button next to the submit button would be better. Then I wouldn't be forced to preview it before submitting but still could if I wanted to. I don't get why I need to preview it, though. It looks the same as it does in this box.

At first after the preview screen submitting your responses wouldn't work, now it seems to be fine and it doesn't really bother me. Hopefully it encourages more users to double check their spelling.

at first it did irritate me, coz it makes the process slow (on top of the slow page-transfers), but now i can appreciate its use.

I agree its slowing me down too. I always reread my comments before submiting them anyway. So going to the preview page is just an extra step to slow me down.

yaa...atleast they should have kept an option to turn it off..

I had a post with the same topic last night!! It just seems like an unnecessary step to me. It's kinda cool that now you can edit your response but it just seems kinda useless to me.
