I continue having occasional issues with lost posts...

I know its "you somehow navigated away from the post while writing it"... and when navigating back... "poof" its all gone... ARRRGGGHHH, etc.

But, I don't know HOW that's happening... as I'm not "fat fingering" it as an "oops, navigated away" but in accidentally typing some crazy combination of keys that seems it does that for me... perhaps typing fast and finding a Ctrl vs Shift, or a function key vs a number ? Donno. I've disabled most shortcuts to stop it... and its not that...

It's been happening for years. Thought for a time I'd just write replies in a text editor and then paste them in to avoid taking the risk... but, makes using the .html tools a pain in the ass...

Whatever the error in some key combination that imposes that problem is... it is way too easy a mistake to make... so easy a 2 year old can make it happen... as a passing 2 year old did make it happen on my computer mid post, today...

So, wondering... as I know others have had this issue too... and know the solution isn't "so, just don't navigate away"...

How hard would it be to include "a one way valve" in the form of a pop up warning that prevents navigating backwards away from writing a post while in process unless you tell it "yes" that's what I intend to do ?

Make it capture the keyed in command that issued the "back" [accidentally abandon the last X time's work] instruction... and people could walk it back to their programmed keys or fat finger combos that are causing the problem ?

That would solve the problem for me... and doesn't seem like it would be rocket science ? I usually proceed forward, not backwards, out of composing a post... and if I want to kill a post mid process, can just kill the tab its in easily enough... Don't think it would cause MORE of a problem to disable reverse in this instance ?

Hi Dmitry,

Would it be possible to add a journal mode option for SI threads where only the moderator can post?

There's a number of members that have boards where they want to be the only poster.

I messed up and posted yesterday to a message before reading the header, thankfully SI Ron deleted it.

Thanks -- Josh

When posting name changes, and other things that required the board, admins don't want to go searchung. There are some tickers have 7 boards.

Thank you. I see there's 5 with the link to SNE or Disney, and Disneyland.

I look at Television and Movies, and within that, comments, reviews, staff changes about the program.
Seeing you on that, I thought of bringing you and the site up to date. The old price for SNE was not updating so was still in the low 100s. It's more than double that.
