Important Tip for Beginners

Gossamer:
When submitting;
Never ever, write your text directly on the site. I just lost about 2 hours work on what was supposed to have been my first submission.
Noooooot feeling like a happy camper atm. >.<

Chaosmark:
Ick. I'm reasonably certain we've got that posted somewhere. But yes, that's definitely something that we try to warn people about. Either write it up in another editor (I just use Notepad++, I know others use MS Word), or save the submission regularly. There is an "In Work - Private" submission type, so you can work in the site-editor and save without making it publicly visible. I use that fairly often.

Gossamer:
So you select that private setting and then press submit? I was a bit unsure of that part. But yeah, definately going to do it in a word processing application from now on.

Shadoweagle:
Yah, we have all been there! I've lost hours of work to that kind of horror before, and when you rewrite it, it never seems quite as good.

Dossta:
I feel your pain.  If it helps, you could try to think of it as a "first draft" that got eaten by Niyotts . . . or something.
