oh no!

Post by Pinetreelover » 08 Dec 2019, 23:21

Hi all,
I spent an hour writing my first post and I guess the website logged me out while I was typing. :o when I clicked on preview it said I have to be logged in to post! I'm mourning the loss of that post and the hour I can't get back. :lol: I don't know if I can ever type all that again. :lol:

Unfortunately this sometimes happens and it happens to the best of us. I almost always copy my posts to the clipboard before hitting submit (especially longer posts that took a bit to write) because I too have been burned.

That said, welcome to the forum. I hope you can find the time to say at least part of what you said so we can get to know you. Thanks for your effort!
In the absence of knowledge or faith there is always hope.

Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."

I agree. I also copy my posts into the clipboard before hitting submit. The likelihood of my losing a post appear to be directly correlated to how long I spent to write it.

I've had that problem too. As the other two said - clipboard - or wordpad if you have a longer piece.

I have been here for 11 years. I don't want to think about how many posts I have lost due to not saving them before trying to submit them.

I hope you can find a way to introduce yourself, more fully (as you tried to do) or more briefly.

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.
