Why does the message board only eat the posts I worked for at least 10 minutes on!

Also it eats the one post I forget to copy before I hit the post button.

Post eating is more often time related than luck.
Those who put effort into typing out posts often experience more post-eating.

The message board feeds on lifeforce, and you put more lifeforce into those long responses because you are more focused on those responses then the two sentence brain turds.

Just give up and feed it.

By the way, since we're already talking, do you want to buy a rifter? I've got the cheapest rifters in Metropolis. If you can find a cheaper rifter, buy it!

Well, CCP originaly introdused this forum as "one universe - one epic flame war" (with ponies and rainbows)... this is just their way to promote short stupid trolling replies, I guess...

...except that the Ponies were forced outside because their security rating didn't match the universe of rainbow development.

The lesson being: "Write a long treatise in an off-line editor before copying/pasting to the forums." Whilst the forums are running low on hamster oil, the internet itself is a strange, nefarious beast with a voracious appetite for rage.

ALWAYS - ALWAYS - Ctrl A/Ctrl C



ALWAYS CTRL C ... Always ... I still remember having written the most incredibly piece of forum post that was going to make eve evolve beyond their singularity into a new state of quantum existence, making eve and everyone here trascend the boundaries of reality.

When my post was eaten, I cried and became mad, totally insane and now can only post strange random posts that deal with apple pies, logical sequences or erotic overtures hidden in plain text.

I'm now but a hollow shell ... If I had known about CTRL C ... (cries and tears hair off scalp)

Yea... I used to do that... then one time I accidently my clipboard and wasted couple hours work....
...then after getting decent amount of consolidation beer I installed Lazarus form recovery for my firefox.

Obviously this addon wasn't originally created to fix bugs in crappy forums like this, but at least now the messages in this forum and anywhere else are safe even I would lose internet connection while posting.
