My instructables answers have not been showing up. Answered

Ive been posting answers on instructables, some of them quite lengthy and knowledgeable. When I went back to follow up, my posts are not there!

You all probably know how it feels to lose 3 paragraphs of hard work, so can anyone help???

Yup, that happened to me last week. I lost about a dozen lengthy answers due to the sloppy programming skills of whoever is hacking their way thru the ibles code.

It has happened to me a couple of times, but in my case, I think (I don't know for certain) I hit the back button or the link to the top level page,  forgetting to actually post the comment.
As a back-up, just copy your text when you finish and then post the reply. If it doesn't post, you can try again by just pasting your copy back in a new answer box and reposting.

I think you're right.  I've done the same thing.  The old editor had a buffer and you could recall the text you typed but this one does not have a buffer.
