No, no one posted after, but it is possible I closed the browser - it's busy here. Is there a work around? If not, oh well.

Okay - i see now what you meant by last posting. I was switching between topics. So when I went to my last posting in topic A, after posting in B, it was locked in. Different understanding of last posting resolved. But then I ask if it is possible to stretch this when you are fine-tuning, please.
I've found myself (on a number of occasions) writing a post, then accidentally clicking Preview instead of Post without realizing it. When the preview loads, I assume I've actually posted and leave the topic, only to find out later that my post isn't there at all. Is it only me who has done this? If so, then I'll just have to pay closer attention when I'm in a hurry, but otherwise perhaps we could separate those buttons out so Post is in the bottom right hand corner and preview is pushed left...
I accidentally hit "reset counter to zero". Is there a way to set the "read postings since __" like on the old d-word?
Remember the old d-word forum? I wonder it's doing these days?
It's a clever feature but I think Joe was the only one using it...
After all, if you try to make an easier interface, you need to lose some clutter. We never intended to make another Motet.
As for Marj's concern, we could also have a red frame around previews, maybe?
Request/idea/suggestion for the FABULOUS New d-word:
Very often, I want to send myself someone's post. Obviously, I can cut and paste the content into another document, but it would be cool to be able to hit "email to a friend" (or if that's not ok, because of members-only, "email to my email of record). Anyone else?
that would be sweet, although tagging would fulfill the same "come back to it over and over again" function
Ben/Peter, perhaps even just switching the positioning of preview and post. My mouse naturally makes for the preview button because it's closest.
My suggestion is: slow down and read the big, bold message that says:
This is a PREVIEW. It has not yet been published.
