Because of the "problem" I've experienced, I limited my immediate, above post to one or two sentences. The "problem" evolves from proofing my post. The Board's "Help" section states, "...if you post something that inadvertently contains errors or is a duplicate posting, there is no way to correct or delete it." So if you, Nate, or anyone else knows of a way to make a change or correction before "submitting" or "posting" it, please advise.
Otherwise, I'll hand-write a message, proof it, and then submit it. If you press the "Reset" button, you lose the entire post. Because of this small window for longer posts, it is difficult to spot an error until you press "Post This Message". I regularly post on another board which has this same small window. You button "Post" and the message comes up in full screen. If you then spot a mistake, you can go back to the original message, correct it, and then return to the message board - no duplicates.
Unless I'm missing something, this is a newer development on this board. (I have been posting on the Brooklyn Board for about 15-20 years and have only encountered this problem in the past few years.)
