    This is the third time in the past few days in which I have lost an entire post. I spend time to craft a meaningful post and it's gone after I send it off -- and it shows me as unregistered too -- despite seeing my handle "Logged in as Rippon" just a moment prior.

    This is frustrating.

    It's a conspiracy. "They" are out to get you. Beware. . .:laugh:

    It's probably just a glitch in the new format. I've had it happen, too, and I'm also seeing the top half of ads once in a while in between posts.

    Ya'll hush about those ads. You just let Bro. Andrew go on thinking we can see them. I'd much rather only see half an ad as a whole one!

    :p

    It hasn't happened to me. That must mean that my posts are much more meaningful than yours. :tongue3:

    I now have 6.19 posts per day average over your less meaningful 4.8. [​IMG]

    The very same thing happened once more! I tried to submit the same post that was deleted before and WHAM -- the whole thing happened again.

    I was told that I had no class for this period so composed the post. I sent it off at 10:15 AM my time. I waied until 10:19 when the scree said I was unregistered. But when I had hit the send button the name Rippon was there to my right in blue letters. So then I logged in again. At 10:26 it took effect.

    In addition to deleting things -- it's just too slow. I have absolutely no tech background whatsoever. But I say to shot er' down for a few days to get the bugs out (how do you like my high-tech jargon?)

    Hey, I figured it out! The spelling and grammar cops must be deleting the wrong posts!

    Hi Rippon,

    *Have you selected the "Remember me" button at the logon screen?

    *The new format may have a "timed out" for each page. If that is the
    case, one would only be allowed a certain amount of time on the
    posting (in your case) page, before it expires.

    Until you find out, I would suggest highlighting and 'copying' what you are writing, often. That way if you do run out of time you can just start the post over by 'pasting' what you have already written.
    Another thing you could do is create your post in a program that you have on your computer and then copy it onto the post page.

    Here now

    That's what I figured out to do awhile back. If I see it is seeming to take really long to load, I hurry up and highlight, copy, and when it times out, I go back and paste my post again. Works like a charm.

    For those who might be wondering, it really isn't a renagade mod on the loose! :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    I have no problems except the slow loading. I do not see adds but that is a result of firefox and adblock addon.

    Its happened to me too, Rip!!!

    I type up a response and think to myself----"This'll get their attention!!!"

    Then I presss the response button and

    it sends a message like------Internet Explorer cannot read this page

    And then the post that I worked so hard on----is gone!!! Poof---in mid-air!!!

    I hear tell-----that all good posts are filtered out some sort of way by the Democrats up in Washington!!!!:laugh::laugh::laugh:
