Lost post

Hi; I was just finishing a long trip report and it suddenly disappeared before I finished and posted it. Is it lost for good?? or can it be recovered? I was posting on the Italy board as lisaonthecape tonight (7/17), and the report was titled: Trip Report: Bologna, Ravenna, Umbria and Rome. I would be most grateful if the report could be salvaged so I can finish it.

  1. That happens to me occasionally, but it's always been because I mistakenly hit the wrong button and no, the pending post has not been recoverable.

    1. We're so sorry, but the posts don't get into our system until you click the "Post" button. We're not sure what happened, but internet glitches have done this in the past, and unfortunately the post is probably not recoverable.

      We try to recommend that people compose long and complicated posts in a word processor or even a mail program, where it can be frequently saved. Sorry this happened to you!
