PSA: Before You Post

weather: cloudy
outside: 9°C
mood: sympathetic
Because you're my friends, I hate to see you seething in rage when LJ ate the post you spent time crafting to perfection and knowing that it's completely preventable:

Pleasepleaseplease, just before you hit the Post button, hold down the CONTROL key and press 'A', then 'C'. This selects everything you've written and copies it to the Copy&Paste buffer.

If LJ has eaten the post, immediately open up your favorite text editor or Notepad or MS Word or even a new LJ post and go CTRL-V to paste.

Do it. Make this a habit. Even if LJ says they're saving your drafts for you.

hi, found you through other journals, and am just a random stranger. commenting here because this advice is good advice. i started doing that after being annoyed at lost posts. i think they've got some auto-save feature going on now though.

Hi there, welcome =)

They do have a draft saving feature now, but I've found that it doesn't save what I think it should. =)

i've luckily not had any problems lately. in fact, i think i've not been using the ctrl-a and copy function even.
