    Default Maybe it's me but...

    When I reply to threads I type out my reply but for some reason I click the stupid (reply to thread) button instead of the 'post quick reply' and it wipes out everything I just typed.

    My brain knows which I am supposed to click but my mouse invariably clicks the wrong one more often than I care to admit. Maybe I just need to cut off the offending hand or smash the mouse, I don't know.

    I think the trouble is between my ears but it has no IP address so I reckon we are out of luck.

    If you get an IP address, let me know and I'll block it! That should take care of it.

    Just trying to help out.

    Remember, always move your mouse DOWN before clicking on anything, not up.

    Been there, inevitably after constructing a lengthy, well written post reeking of profundity and pithy nuance.

    I had a case of it myself at one time. I began composing my posts in Word and doing a copy and paste....that way when I accidentally deleted the whole thing....it was easy to do again.

    Not only that but every once in a while you can lose your post even when you click the correct thing. If you post on the Internet much you will learn to select all then copy before you post if it's anything you don't want to retype.

    Why do we need a "Reply to Thread" button when we have the "Reply" or "Reply With Quote" at the bottom of each Post? I have never used "Reply to Thread". And what is "Go Advanced" all about? Where does it "Go" and what is "Advanced" about it? And while I'm asking, why does one "Post Quick Reply"? Why isn't it just "Post Reply"? What is "Quick" about it?

    FYI, I've never once hit the "Reply To Thread" button. Guess it's the way we're wired.

    I think the way my screen ends up the "Post Quick Reply" button is often off the screen on the bottom and I don't see it, but I always see the "Reply to Thread" button plus it's much more visible.

    Yep, me too Michael. I have to scroll down to see the proper button most of the time.

    Mark, Actually I agree with most of your comments except Go Advanced. Although it is not going anywhere it just makes it sound a lot more exciting to think so. The advanced part does have some meaning. I can change text color add things like this
    Get someones Attention or give emphasis to a particular word like that or like This
    For those that just never seem to be able to get it though I can add a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link or even a hand_c_icon2.jpg
    I can even add
