    Hi Grove

    I know how you feel. It happened to me the other day and for some reason I was 'logged out' while writing a PM. I opened TP on a new tab, so in twice, I then copied the PM and then pasted it in to the PM in the 'logged in tab'. Don't knwo if it makes sense but hope it helps.

    I couldn't find a wya to save it either and it hadn't happened to me before. Strange things happen with this PM system I find, but then I get muddled so think it must be me but maybe not (well not all of the time!)

    I write in Word when I can remember and copy and paste into the reply box.

    I am sorry Grove. I don`t know what it is but I`m always losing posts too.

    This happened to me today as well - I also went to do something in the middle of writing, and when I came back to add my hugs etc and send it off - I was told I had "used up my token period" ( what ever that meant) and was zapped to the log in page and lost my letter - have learnt in the past for the need to remember me click - but for some reason recently TP doesn't remember me!!

    Sometimes if you use the back button on your browser, it will take you to the last page you viewed, which should have the text on.. so then you can copy it to your clipboard and start again..

    Well I do think this is a timing issue in that if you don't have "remember me" ticked you will get logged out after a period of inactivity. However, when that happens, I have found that if I follow the instructions given then exactly (i.e. click on the given link to log in NOT click on the link at the top of the page) I don't lose posts. However, I haven't tried it with PMs so I will do that and post back (but it will be a while because I have to log in without remember me ticked so I can be "forgotten").

    So I tried to send a message but I was logged off and I got this screen.

    Name:  Screen shot 2012-03-30 at 3.24.24 PM.png

    I logged in using that screen, whereupon it returned me to my PM screen, and I thought "rats, I've lost my message". However, on further checking I found that my message was actually sent without me doing anything as soon as I logged back in. Grove, are you sure this didn't happened to you?
