vBulletin ate a long post!
Where do you find the longest posts, the ones that have the most feeling in them? The ones we fans absolutely hate having to rewrite? Of course, it's the Senate Chambers. And I wrote a nice, long post, and clicked Submit. It locked up on me, and I had to do it over! :crybaby: This has happened several times. So, I'm curious: What causes vB to eat them? I myself am a member of vB forums with vBulletin 3.5, and have identical layouts, but even when they had the same version number as this forum, it never ate long posts like that. That forum got pretty bogged down recently, and I am known because I jumped to 800+ posts in a matter of months. :o A lot of those were long. What would cause long posts to be lost like that? It's very irritating.

Just copy your post before you post, you won't lose another post this way.

This should be general posting practice anyway.

OK. Anytime I exceed, say... 3 paragraphs, I'll Copy and Paste it into Notepad. But a post like this one shouldn't require a C&P backup. :)

I don't think you need to paste it into notepad every time, you can just copy it and it will be stored until you copy something else.

I still have this problem at work... absolutely horrid.... I can only 'quick repy' there and I can't edit them.

Then sometimes it works flawlessly.... amazingly annoying.
