    Manually delete everthing in the text box. Then, in the row of buttons above the text box, find the one towards the right labled "Drafts", click on that and select "delete draft".

    On a bit more serious note, I am not sure what add ons one can purchase to satisfy all our needs, or if it is one large box, one size fits all.
    The new server, in itself, is quite costly. It means a lot that the forum owner has taken this step, first and foremost to enhance security. It takes a lot of commitment and caring, sacrificing and believing in what you are doing to run this place, and a lot of cash. There is no denying it.
    So yes, every penny helps.
    It will take some time to get all the kinks out and for all of us to learn the new system. Don't forget, we are learning together.
    I am so thankful for all the members who have asked important questions and have come forward to help each other.

    Does anyone know how you delete the conversations, aka the new PMs???

    I had someone ask me that, but I didn't know. I assumed that you could do it by leaving the conversation, but I didn't want to try it out because I didn't want to leave the conversation, I wanted to keep it on my end.

    Yes, you just leave the conversation.

    They are the people who visit your profile page. The ones that aren't members are called guests.

    It seems that sometimes when I reply to a thread, I am automatically "watching" that thread. For some other threads, I have to actually click the option at the top of the thread that says "watch thread." This has even happened with my OWN threads. Lol. Not a big deal, but it is kind of weird.

    I know what you mean. I hate that it doesn't just delete it when you delete it the regular way!

    The site was inaccessible a little while ago. Assume the Gods of Olympus already know this but thought I would mention it in case they weren't

    Not sure. I tried a couple times maybe twenty minutes before that post and got nothing. Youtubed for a bit to make sure it was the site and not my internet being down and came back and it was working again, so if it was down an hour, I just rolled in on the back end of it.

    Ok, this is driving me nuts. (Shut up)

    I'm reading a thread, accidently hit the back key or sometimes, dont hit anything, and suddenly im zapped outta that thread AND CANT FIND IT AGAIN! Its no longer listed in Watched Threads or New Posts. Only way I can find it again is to search for it... what a pain!

    Where does it go?

    Btw, I was typing this msg last nite when the site went down. Really, if you didnt wanna answer, all you had to say was idk. ;)

    So you are the one who broke the whole site with your back button hitting huh? Always suspected you were secretly a bad seed like that...

    Is the site having trouble? I am having difficulty with pages loading. Its like it is running a long script. But I get no message that is. Also, when I click on likes it takes me to another pages and ask do you want to like this post. It wasn't doing any of this before. Also the alerts is taking time and then never shows anything unless clicked on.

    Then when I am going to another thread. Only a part of the page loads and it keeps running. I've checked my end, but everything is running as it should be.

    Had this problem all day yesterday, and now today its like taking time to do anything.

    You guys need to defrag or something. Its like something is out of sync. Since the change over Ive had no issues. I don't know what else I can check on my end. Ive ran diagnostics and all is in order.
