    Being knocked off of "answer" area

    Has any other member been knocked off while writing a response to a question? I just had it happen to me for the 3rd time and each of the posts were lengthy.(3 total in the last 2 months) I know I did not hit the button to process my post in each of the 3 circumstances. I should have asked after it happened the second time but I just wrote it off to being "flukes". But now I'm curious to know if something may be wrong with the site.

      If it doesn't happen during your short posts, most likely you were timed out due to the lengthy ones. It's just a guess on my part because I haven't done allot of posting.

      It happens to me sometimes. Im mostly on a phone when Im on the site.

      Sometimes the notes send themselves out before Im done writing them.

      Somewhere on your machine is a go back command. My phone has an arrow in the lower left corner. As often as not, should I tap that arrow, the screen will revert to where it was before (a cache perhaps?) and still have the box filled with mytapped words.

      Best wishes

      We're not having any problems on the site, I expect you are either reaching the max on characters in the post (but that shouldn't reset the screen) or you are inadvertently hitting a key that's causing it. Let us know if this is something that happens again.

      GregP-WN What is the limit on characters in this area?

      140 for the title, and 1000 for the content area. Still, you shouldn't get "booted off" by reaching the limit, you should just get a msg. saying limit reached and you can't type in any more.

      I have had this trouble on this site and others ever since Windows 10 was installed I have been randomly booted off the internet . I have a clunky 6 year old computer and I also have a piece of trash Linksy adapter . I had to completely reinstall it. My Internet provider said that it was sort of incompatible with Windows 10

      GregP_WN It had to be the content area then. I wish we could upgrade to a counter system. But I have never received a msg about getting close to limit. Boise B I've never gone as far as Windows 10 I've heard too many horror stories. I'm still on 7. At least I know to watch closer as I type. Thanks.
