One question though - in regards to your post that you are talking about, your "continuance" post was rather comprehensive, so if you are the first
to reply to your own OP and it takes like 30mins or something to finalise it, does that first reply "lock-in" to automatically become your second
post - I am wondering about someone who reads the OP and replies before you've had the opportunity to finish your work - I have not seen a "split"
in an OP yet but surely this occurs?
For my original articles that are going to be pretty wordy, I write them up in a text editor on my computer, and once I'm reasonably happy with it, I
go and hit the "New Thread" button, paste in my text and if it all doesn't fit, I find a natural break, delete back to that, then go to my text
file, copy the stuff that didn't fit, create another thread in a new window, use the "Preview" buttons of each of the two windows to make sure that
I didn't totally screw up my tags, then close the second window, post the first one, immediately reply to it, paste in the second part, and post
Unless someone posts to your thread within about five seconds, you're good to go on having the first two posts together.
