A few threads have people giving out about disappearing posts. I think this is whats happening. You write a long post and submit it, someone else has submitted a post in the meantime on the same thread, then the new software gives you a message saying something like "Another post has been entered since you read this, do you want to submit" and you have to submit it again!

Soooo frustrating when you lose a long post! It normally goes to a 'this webpage has expired' page for me. I make a habit of copying my post before I submit so if it doesn't post, I go again & paste the message!

It's the webpage vanishing. It's better now than it was when the new look was first introduced, but it's flipping frustrating!

I copy long posts before submitting too, very annoying when they disappear. That feature you're talking about Neeov is actually really helpful when you get used to it, means you don't miss other people's posts while you're writing.
