"Someone Else Has Posted"
« on: March 21, 2011, 01:22:43 PM »
I just wrote up a post for a multiplayer game, hit submit, and got the "someone else has already posted to this thread; you might want to preview" message. I skimmed over that, unfortunately, and closed the tab. Now the post has disappeared into the ether.

My question is: Is there some way to turn off this feature? I've been bitten by this about three times now. Yes, I can be more careful, particularly when posting to multiplayer threads. But honestly I would far rather have a post go up that's unfortunately outdated or out of context than have the post end up gone forever. At least in the first case I can edit to make things right.

That warning doesn't make it impossible to post. It's just a warning; if you hit submit anyway, you can still post. I've done it plenty of times in discussions I'm not paying enough attention to.

Go to look and layout in your profile and check the Don't warn on new replies box.

Thanks, Beguile's Mistress.

Avis - Yes, I get that. But if I'm in a hurry, I'll often hit Submit and then close the page that comes back without being careful enough about what's going on. If I had seen what had happened I'd of course just hit Submit again.

If you use Firefox like Mr. Fyre and I, you might be interested in the Lazarus add-on.  It has saved many a post and the need for us both to announce our postings like lumberjacks calling out "Timber!"

Can't you just hit the back button on ff and the post still be there?

There was a glitch not long ago where that was not the case.

It was a bug in Firefox prior to version 4.
