Message Already Posted?

Earlier today I tried to post a message under Life After Fire with a subject of Italy & Greece Cruise Report. I attempted to attach several pictures. When I hit "post" I got a message that "the upload folder is full" and a "back" link. I reduced the size of the picrtures and attached them and again hit "post". I got a message to the effect that the message had already been posted. However, I do not see the message (with or without the attachments) anywhere. What do I do now? Thanks.

I just boosted the attachment folder quota to double what it was, so you should be OK now. But you'll probably have to report the message...
Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain

If you happen to have the "post" window still open, you'll probably have to copy all the text, start with a fresh "reply" or "post" click and then paste the text in. And reattatch the attachments. I think I had something similar once before. It's supposed to keep you from accidentally double posting from the same window, but if it gets confused it will prevent you from posting.

Kind of like the moderators on this forum.

Some of us have pretty stories, about good friends, good times and noodle salad.
