I just visited the weapons forum, clicked on the "Who has the best special forces" thread, and wrote a HUGE reply. I clicked post reply button and.........pooof!!!!!............a blank page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:bnghd::bnghd:
What is the meaning of this? I had to click the back button and write a VERY SHORT reply instead. This isn't the first time this happened and this is pisting me off. I am now afraid of writing long replies. What is going on? What's causing this?

It is annoying when this happens. A simple solution is just copy the post before you hit post or write it in word.

Excellent idea! This happens to you to? That sucks. I really hate it. I'll just copy my post from now on.

Sorry to hear that. Here are some tips on what you can do to prevent it from happening again. I recommend this thread.

It isn't always a bug in the program. Something like that can be caused by the user's--in this case Russian Soldier, but who ever--internet connection dropping out for a bit. Even with cable/broad band, a little hiccup on the network somewhere and the transmission's dropped. Also, it may be an issue with the server--maybe too many people clicked refresh at the same time, maybe the server software they use (ie apache, but whatever they have on their machine) has a minor glitch that isn't frequent enough to replicate reliably, so they can't fix it.

It's not that big a hassle; just after you're finished with your post, click in the box, hit Ctrl+A (windows, forget what Mac is, but I'm fairly sure it's similar), Ctrl+C. Click post, then if it chunks out on you hit Ctrl+V in the box when you get back to the screen to make your post. It takes longer to read what I just wrote than to do it.
