Twice today, in the last 2 hours, I have written a fairly long post, and pressed submit only to find the next page telling me that the post could not
be posted. Once because the thread got closed whilst I was writing, the 2nd time because I was not authorised to post to that particular board
- BTW It could have been made a lot clearer from the outset "Board Information" Why is there a "new thread" button followed by a normal screen to
write your post in??? If I'm not allowed to post in there, it should not give me a "new thread" button.
After writing the post, and then going to the send it screen and then being told it wasn't to be allowed, I then (obviously) am anxious to retrieve
what I just typed out so that I can copy and paste it into the place where I am allowed to post it, but upon pressing the back button I find that the
information has gone - blank box Grrrrr
It occured to me that this does not happen on most other internet forums, when you make a mistake, you press the back button and there (more often
than not) is your post, so you can copy it onto the the clipboard.
Is this something that could be written into the coding for ATS board?
And if I could ask a brief subsequent question, which was basically what I wanted to know in "board information"..... Do the threads in "Breaking
News" eventually get moved into their appropriate topic boards?
P.S. going to copy this one before I click send
