    A couple of days ago I was typing a rough draft of a thread that I was about to post. It was very important and I had a lot of material already saved on it. I swore I remember hitting the "save" tab, and when I was about to continue my draft earlier today, it was gone! This has never happened to me before, and I remember the content that I saved on previous thread was always there when I logged in again. I just wanna know what's going on, and how can I possibly get my draft back. It makes no sense, but if I could get some help that would be great. I really don't want to write the material all over again...

    Can you try going to that thread were you last left your draft at?

    Hi Survivalist. I already went back to the thread like you said, but I think it's too late. I restarted my draft again, and saved it, so I think the old one got erased. The good news is that my new one actually got saved this time, but as of now, I may have to start all over again. It was just very weird how it happened, I could have sworn I'd hit the save button.

    I tend to use an external file, usually google docs which is very easy to use, to save longer drafts.

    Next time I'll try that instead. Just to remind you, I did another rough draft that was fairly long, and it disappeared yet again. I realized that within 24 hours, if you don't post your thread, it will be erased. I think you need to address this issue to the Nofap team as this has never happened to me before. In previous posts, I would have my draft still there even if it wasn't posted within a week or more. There is something clearly wrong with the save tab, but other than that, I'll take your advice on google docs. Thanks for your help.
