I didn't have a signal very often but at one point I had full WiFi, so started a new thread, I called bears on tour for a laugh, maybe a couple of hundred words, I dunno as it never posted and of course I have no backup, no idea what I wrote either [rolleyes] as it was mostly just a bit of a blog with a few laughs at our joint antics.

On some other forums it saves it in case the power goes off or some other mishap, MHO doesn't and I am a bit peeved about that, is there a storage place where it may be retrieved.

Peeved about losing the post as it has happened before when using a phone or tablet, finger straying over the back button usually (SO INFURIATING)  not at the site itself [smile] [smile]

I have done the same Kev. - Most annoying.

Shame about your 'blog' as I would have like to see it. 😳

I have lost about four long posts while writing them (sighs of relief all round).  I feel your peeve, Kev and Woody. I now assemble them in Word and then copy and paste.

Do that on a regular basis when away and using my Ipad. Back button woes. Old dog. New tricks and all that. [frown]

I'll ask if there is 'save' facility for part completed posts.

So glad its not just me then, I can own up now to having
done the same thing a couple of times. Fingers are quicker
than the brain on my tablet, old sucks.

Its nice to be in good company even if it's making the same
mistakes. Have to laugh or we might take it seriously.
keep smiling all, it's probably already happened and we
didn't even notice so just keep taking the tablets.
Have a great day all.

I was writing a thread on facts before we set off, and I got interrupted so forgot about it, I've just re-opened the tab and it is still there even after closing down the laptop, I just did a google restore.

I just tried it on the laptop to see if the same happens on here but it seems to not be a facility, maybe it's only only on facts, it is just one of the quirks of using a tablet, like Ebay being a waste of time as is Youtube if you wish to do anything even slightly useful [rolleyes]

Do they know where I live then Ross [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin] as I think it's the nut on the keyboard where the problem lies.

Must be the gremlins. I did ask the helpdesk who told me that it was not part of the coding system to be able to retain a 'draft'. However they did think it was something that they would forward to the developers for them to consider in a future upgrade.

I just lost one!

I pressed the add reply button at the same time as a new post arose and mine disappeared. Pissed off as it was quite long and not good reading as it was bad news.

Sorry Si, I know the feeling, I've lost several now, stopped mentioning it as it is a developer issue til it's sorted.

That's why I don't get on very well with techie stuff, you do everything
right but the computer doesn't do what it's supposed to then blames
me. I can relate to your situation give it a clout Simon let it know who's
in charge.

Well, at least I don't need alcohol to be stupid. I write my reply and for some reason nearly always click on 'Go to top of page'. Move off to the next post and forget to hit 'Add Reply'. Aaaagh! Oh heck! did it just then. Have scrolled to the bottom and will now 'Add Reply'.
