"Why did I get a preview?"

Postby Kix » Mon Apr 30, 2007 7:52 am

One thing you may notice when posting is that you can get a message preview when you're trying to submit. "But I swore I hit the submit button!"

I'll spill the beans on one of my secrets here. You probably did. There's some anti-spam technology running behind the scenes here, and sometimes it accidentally flags a post as spam when it isn't. That's not a really big deal, since it doesn't wipe your post out in that case -- it just makes you "preview" instead of submitting the post. Still, it can be a bit surprising. Most often, this will happen if you submit too quickly, so make sure to count to 5 between clicking to reply and trying to submit.
