I do not press the preview button quite often. I agree with you that we should use it quite often. Sometimes, if I've drafted a lengthy response, I just go through it again to check errors. Once I have written my response, I simply 'submit' it.

Hi there! I don't use the preview feature too. Thanks to my browser, Mozilla Firefox which already has a spell-checker, I don't have to use preview to check for typos anymore. I also don't have to copy everything I typed to be safe, even when the internet connection is really bad because it has a post-data saver feature.

I do not use the preview button. I am always in too much of a hurry. I have to use dialup also and it makes it go to slow.

It is there to be used however we want to use them. Personally, I have never used it. Sometimes I am too hasty and regret not having reviewed my posts. It's no biggie. Cheers!!

I'm too lazy to use it but I probably should. I make a lot of mistakes.

Yes Bhushan I too agree with you that we should use this feature as it will make our discussion or response a clean ones without any mistakes! But like you mentioned most of us are not using this as there are no particular guide lines where the members are asked to post the topics without any mistakes! But previewing the topic before posting makes much sense. We can rectify the mistakes, spellings and some times the grammer too. It helps in laying out our topic systematically, paragraph wise also. But then inspite of knowing the facts there are many people like youand me who are not bothering to use this preview feature. mylot people are clearly mentioned in their guide lines that they are not bothered about the standard of English that is used for discussion. On the contrary myLot people are asking as not to say anything if we find that proper language is not being used in this forum for a discussion ! Because according to them there are many members from non Eglish speaking Countries who are particupating in this forum may not have very good English and they still may want to participate in this forum.Such members are never discouraged by myLot ! Thus because of this aspect, I think many of us are not really bothered about small mistakes occuring either while typing or other mistakes like spellings etc. So in order to save time and to post as amny posts as possible within a stipulated time many of the members they are not using this feature ! LOL ! I am posting this response without actually previewing it! All the best and happy myLotting dear friend!

I don't usually use the preview. I do reread over my response before posting though. I only use the preview if I use any of the myLot code features. That way I can see if I used it correctly!
