Long entry just eaten, returning only the following message:

Updating journal…
Error updating journal:

Client error: This journal is temporarily in read-only mode. Try again in a couple minutes.

Try again? You mean, WRITE IT AGAIN? Bloody LJ.

  • most (sensible) browsers will retain the text if you do an [ALT]-[left cursor] or even use the back button on the browser … This has been my saviour on many an occasion.

  • Bum… I’ve taken to copying and pasting long entries into notebook these days. I’ve lost a few entries recently. LJ needs to sort itself out!

  • I did try that – usually it works, but sometimes (as in last night) it was just gone. Not that it was a really profound entry of anything (that would be a first!) but I’d nattered on about Doctor Who and Farscape and TV in general, and it wasn’t worth re-writing. :(

  • I know that I should – write it in a text editor, then paste it into LJ, but for most entries it seems like too much trouble. And then you lose them now and again. :(

  • heh funny (well, not really), but this happened to me the other night. Actually it was MY computer’s fault, not LJ. Typed a big post about something and wanted to post a link to some cool flash site, so I GO to the site, and the flash locks up my entire computer and so my post is lost, hmm oh well. I can’t even remember what site it was now, hehe, but if I do I’ll post it again :). I rebooted and retyped my post, and then forgot to post the URL, hehe.

  • Have you tried any of the downloadable clients? Might help in this situation as you can save a draft before you post. I like Semagic. It’s mostly shiny.
