Message lost if trying to post without log in

I wrote a lengthy message before loggin in / registering in the available message box.

It was lost after the registration process and I would have had to reqrite it, had I not wisely copied it first.

This is annoying behaviour - if posting without sign in is not possible, the message box should not be available in the first place...


Hello @thowa,
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are reviewing the behavior reported by you internally.
Thank you for being part of the community!

@thowa Normally the content would not disappear. However, if there was any hiccup in the registration process (internet disruption, etc.) it could happen. In the future, I recommend that you save your post in a text file to be able to copy and paste it. Formatting issues can be resolved by highlighting and using the Tx button, which clears formatting, in the toolbar. We apologize for the inconvenience.
