I thought it was strange. I was posting on here and I noticed my post didn't work. That also happened 1 more time. I also heard Williamkirk said that one of his post did not go thorugh. I think your boards are broke or something.....
What is with this, cause I don't want to be making a long message and then it doesn't go thorugh.
Currently working on RPGMxp LAD Chalisma 1: The Chalisma Orb

Yeah it happened to me once. Don't know what the problem was but so far it hasn't happened again. Usually when I make really big response I copy it before officially posting it, because gamefaqs used to mess up sometimes.

If it's a problem with posting, it is likely something that is out of our control. ProBoards is the host of this message board, and we really can't control anything except the general appearance of this message board. The actual logging in and posting is handled by ProBoards software.
I take the advice that William offered, and if I type up a sizable post, I highlight it all (Ctrl+A) and then copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl+C). It is very quick to do and can save you a huge headache later on. This is a problem that happens occasionally on nearly all message boards, so that's a good habit to be in.
I've personally never had it happen on this board, but I'm sure to always be logged in. When I visit and click "Login", I delete the "360" text from the "Minutes to stay logged in" box. I then check the box that says "Always stay logged in". This is very convenient to avoid logging in every time you visit, and it eliminates most problems with faulty posting. Then, if you want to log out, all you have to do is click the "Logout" button at the top.
Other than offering recommendations like that, I don't believe there is anything we can do to help log-in or posting problems. But do be sure to let us know of persistent problems so that we can notify ProBoards staff.
My board posting problems are simply the computer locking up every time I'm taking my time posting a long message (and about every long message takes a while). Actually, it doesn't completely lock up, but this white text box with no text except an OK/Cancel button pops up, and then the computer acts up and I have to restart it. So any time I notice I'm posting a long message, I cut out what I have, back up a page (so I'm not on the posting page), and finish what I want in notepad. Then I copy it back and post it all at once when I'm done.
