I noticed some recent mentioning of posts typed and submitted which were "lost". I suspect the problem may be that while typing a post someone else responded to the same topic between the time you started typing and the time you submitted your post. Your post wasn't lost (at that time) because:

After submitting a post a screen will appear stating that your message has been posted
and gives you the option to view your post (which would occur automatially in a few more seconds). Don't click on anything -- just wait for the screen to automatically change. If someone posted during the interim you will then see their post above yours. If you don't scroll past their post and submit yours again, your post will be lost. It's a quirky feature and I don't like it but I can't change it.

In other words, after you submit a post it's a good idea to always wait (patiently...) until the forum software automatically brings you to view your submitted post -- or the post of someone else who beat you to the punch. That's when you scroll down and re-submit yours.

Hoping that explanation made sense...

thanks for the explanation. that makes sense, because on occasion I've seen the screen saying that there has been another post since I looked and did I still want to submit my post. Now it all adds up.
