Hi Computer-Joe,


I can fully understand your frustration when this occurs.


From the Community perspective, I can see a downside to locking out moves when a reply window is open.


A member might be composing a very long and complex response, or is interrupted and walks away from the computer with the reply window open.  This could cause a substantial delay in moving a message to the proper location.


However, we want the forum platform to be as user friendly as possible and your suggestions are highly valued.


So even though I know the administrators read the posts here, I will be sure to highlight this thread to their attention.  There are some good suggestions here from both Computer-Joe and aviewer.




That's exactly my point, after all that work, it's lost. The last thread it happened on was at it's previous location for at least a day and a half and I had already posted to it at least twice before, so it does not seem post moving is all that time critical.


I don't think it would be that difficult to change the "read only" message to "oops this thread has been moved, would you like to post your reply in the new location?" or at least fix it so that the freakin autosave retains your message.



How can you be in two places at once, when your not anywhere at all?
I really want to become a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.
There are three kinds of people, those that can count, and those that can't.
