    Hey Chuck. I had just typed a large post and attached a file, when I clicked "submit" I got the page saying the image was too large. When I hit "back" on IE the text I had just typed was all gone. Any way to see if this can be avoided or have a button added to the "error" page that will take us back without losing all the text we typed?

    That stinks! Not sure what Chuck can do about that.
    I know it's not much consolation, but maybe next time when typing a long informative post, maybe you could copy and paste it into Word just incase another foul-up occurs. Then at least you would still have your post saved.

    Yea, reminds me of when I spend an hour writing a auction description on eBay... hit submit, get an error... go back and its gone. :angry:

    Im not sure what can be done... I think it might be a browser issue. I always copy the message so I can paste it if it gets erased.
