Ayakaru — I don’t know what to tell you about this. I use the forums a lot, and occasionally I get sent to a screen that tells me that all my wonderful prose, over which I labored for at least three minutes, so gone. Therefore I must start again. ~hand on forehead~
Seriously, because the forum sometimes acts up, I’ve taken to — when I remember to do it — copying and saving the post in my clipboard so I can just slap it back into the thread. When you do this with a post that is previously inclusive of a quote, you’re essentially putting a fresh reply instead of a quote-containing reply, and I think the tech is different. Anyway, I find that this lessens the chance of the post going away.
Can you give this a try a few times and see if it makes the process smoother for you?

I have done the Copy Message since the old days. Just like when Home PC’s first came out and we wrote our own code. Every few lines you wrote you saved.
It is funny thought you can edit a post within seconds of posting it but have to wait 300 seconds to make a new post. Now that is very Sad.
Now this crap.
An Error Prevented Saving:
Bump Warning: You are bumping a topic whose last post was seven days ago. Please select the manual override below if you still wish to post this.
The only time you must wait 300 seconds before posting again, is when you are the recipient of Flood Control measures. It will eventually expire (unless additional Flood Control actions are accrued).

This is what i do ALWAYS before i post on any forum or whatever – or even better, sometimes i compose post in my text editor just to get rid of all those inconviniences
