Welcome aboard, friend. We look forward to hearing more about your and your retirement journey. If you know how to use private messages, you can always directly ask a mod or an admin any questions you might have about how to post and such. We're a friendly lot, so don't be shy.

In case you forgot how you got there after you registered and posted the opening post here, the procedure to start a new thread/post is:

Log in.

On the bar across the top near the left, click "Forums".

Scroll down, and select a sub-forum you wish to post to. This one is "Forum Admin", there is "Hi, I am...", "FIRE and Money", etc.

Towards the top left, click on "New Thread".

A text entry box should open up, enter your text and click "Submit New Thread"

Or - If you are posting to an existing thread, click "Post Reply" towards the top left. Or "Quote" on the lower right of a post that you want to quote and reply to.

Well, I just tried to start a new thread. Spent quite a while typing the details. Didn't realize I wasn't logged in. Logged in and the whole thing was erased.

Not going to try again now. I put too much effort into that one. I wish that the program had told me I couldn't create the thread BEFORE I spent so much time on it.

I try to get in the habit of doing a Select-All, Copy before I submit, or while in the middle of a long reply, or one that's complex with a bunch of embedded quotes. If something hangs, you can start again and paste it back in.

Heaven forbid a single word of my wisdom/insight gets lost!

Sorry to hear about your lost post. I've done the same thing. Now, if I have a post that I expect to be quite long, I will often compose it in a Word document and then copy and paste to the posting window here.

.... or "Preview Post"...
If I'm not sure whether I posted or not, I open a new ER Forum in a second tab, and go to the thread I was working on. Saves rewriting or duplicate posting.
