I wrote this huge post the other day and then went to save it and the website came back with some error. Does this happen to anyone else. I had spent an hour writing an eloquent piece only to have lost it. From now on I am going to write my posts in notepad and then that will make sure I have a copy of it if the site goes down unexpectedly.
That has happened to me several times. It's a shame. I know how you feel. Sometimes I have taken a deep breath and composed the text again, other times I have said 'hang it' and closed down.
It's like investing...only risk what you can afford to lose! I use Word for things that I intend to compose with care (that can take weeks) and then it is a simple matter of cutting and pasting into the comment box, checking the formatting - only takes a minute - and them posting.
I don't know if the site can retrieve your text. Maybe ask? They are really helpful and I know they have found things in cyberspace for others.
If you are experiencing errors or loss of your posts etc, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavour to respond as soon as we are able.
The website does unfortunately crash from time to time and we apologise if this negatively affects or has affected any of the Cancer Connections community.
Where members wish to contribute longer posts or replies, johnrp1964's suggestion of using another word processing program to write with and then copying and pasting the text from it to the website is a good one.
