Why is it if you fat finger and hit the back button while typing a post and then click the forward button your post gets wiped out ? It is very annoying for someone whose typing skills are very challenged !!!!!!!!!!! I was in the middle of a lenghthy post when it happened (actually almost finished) and the damn thing gets wiped out and I will have to start over. Can something be done to correct this ? Please ?????????????????????????

Yes, stop hitting the back button.

On a less sarcastic note, write your post in a word program and then copy-and-paste it when you are done.

But the back button is so big and it makes a real cool clicking sound. Thanks for the suggestion, but I still think it would be easier if we could click back and forth at our discretion as needed. Why does it wipe out what you posted ?

Because you're not paying for this website or any of the software it is running.

I feel your pain, I to have lost many long post due to the back button issue. Because I type on a laptop sometimes I accidental hit the pad buttons with my thumbs and this too causes the back button to work. Also I find it very disturbing when you submit your post and the site server disconnects, and advises you to hit the back button and your message is deleted.

One other complaint and this one is a doozy. Many of my post's have been disapeering from the site. It's not that I am being censored by the mods or admin, but my posts are just actually disapeering and nobody knows what's happening.

Frustrating stuff, but it's good to know I am not alone. Good posts VDJ,

Maybe this should be on forum help?

Anyway, I have a mouse with 4 "clickers"
one on the far left, one on far right and 2 in center. It is very easy to accidently hit the one on far left. And it is somehow a hotkey for the back button, so I have lost a lot of posts. Some I re-post. Others I call it a day. Writing it on a word document is a good idea, but it requires a few extra... clicks :<

I feel your pain. I'm on a laptop... and often times my hand will hit the pad causing it to click when the cursor is no longer in the textbox.... and I'll accidentallly hit the backspace key and that triggers the back button... boom, post lost. Sucks.

It sounds like the Laptop is the common thread. Joel, the "I'm not paying for the site" comment wasn't really nessesary. I had a legitimate question that deserved a straight forward answer.

V,
In an ironic turn of events. Just yesterday I wrote a long post to you regarding your pm. Poof... it was gone. Sorry I'll have to get up the energy to do it again.

VDJ, the "you're not paying" comment was not meant to be rude, and it was a straightforward answer. Although if it was rude I don't feel it would be entirely out of line with your attitude. The fact of the matter is that if this were a pay-membership site then we might be able to have better software, less ads, and a whole host of other options. But it is not a pay-membership site, and I think most here are thankful for that. With it being a free use site I find it laughable and disrespectful when people complain about petty things such as "when I click the back button on accident my post goes away." There are completely viable (and quite simple) ways to remedy this problem and yet you continue to whine.

I have a mouse that has a hot-button for the Back function in my web browser, and yes, I do click it sometimes when I'm writing a post and have to rewrite it. Big deal! It it matters that much, rewrite the post like I do, or just do it in a word processing program.


Or maybe I'm wrong and beggars can be choosers.

Either way I doubt your complaint will be mended, so I suggest you use a word processing program to avoid any further problems.
