    Tagging someone nuked a post?

    I was writing a fairly long reply to a post and almost finished and was trying to tag someone and as soon as I clicked on their name in the drop down menu my entire post disappeared, and then immediately auto-saved. So that post is gone, which is pretty bloody infuriating, since now I'll either have to re-type the whole thing or just not bother.

    You could hand write it, put it in an envelope & then send it to him. Mebbee it wouldn’t get lost.

        Or tag first, then type out. But yeah, we put all our stuff at work on Word first.

      You must have somehow had the text selected for the tagging to delete all your text. I've had that happen too. I usually just hit ESC and cancel out of the tag auto-completion these days.

        jfmorris Nope, nothing was selected. If it had been typing the '@' hold have replaced the selection. What happened was I typed '@Tro', selected Troutman's name in the dropdown menu, and the whole post got nuked. And then it auto-saved the empty text box, so whole post gone.

        Just weird and frustrating.

          I have tried to emulate this problem. I would like to figure it out. Can you recall anything else? Keys you may have hit, mouse actions? Did anything else on the page change or flash? Any little thing you can recall could be very helpful.

          As someone that writes code, I understand how all the different tech can (and often does) conflict. Keyboard shortcuts are one area that I would like to see the OS, Browser, and Website agree on.

          One thing I will look into. Prevent the Auto Save from saving a blank post. That is annoying. An useless.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
