PM box - send button and cancel button

(7 Posts)

bloody shift them away from each other would you? I am pig sick of accidentally clicking on cancel after I have spent ages typing a message!

Either that, or when you press cancel, the message saves to a draft folder. Unsent messages. That way, you don't bloody sodding pigging bleeding RUDDY LOSE THEM

Oh dear. You have my sympathy Hecate, 'tis very frustrating losing your work like that. I suspect the simplest solution would be to have a confirmation dialog come up if you hit the cancel button, so you can cancel your cancelling (does that make sense?) if you hit it accidentally. Since on Talk the buttons are Preview/Post, having Send/Cancel on a different form is rather counter-intuitive.

It won't be a safeguard if you close the window or click on another link of course, but hopefully it'll ease the problem a bit. Some browsers have add-ons that allow you to recover form data, which you might find handy as I'm sure MN isn't the only place that has this problem.

I think it would be a big improvement if we have a Recall Button Of Shame for those ill-advised sent-while-drunk messages too. Shouldnt be too hard, should it? grin

Do you mean to say LeBOOOOf, that you've been Mumsnetting under the influence? Tut, tut... grin

Yes. That would be a good idea Damian. Me and my sausage fingers thank you.

And yes, Lebof, that'd be good too.

Maybe a "You're Pissed, Are You Sure This Is Wise" big red flashing sign too grin

<wonders what Hec is Pm'ing about that takes so much explaining>

<decides it's a bumsex thang>


grin and personal abuse, Pinot, don't forget personal abuse.

I seem all nice and friendly out here, but oooh, I'm pming death threats and hexes and wishing painful piles on at least half of you. mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha

-disclaimer - I AM KIDDING

Anyone who has in fact had a PM wishing painful piles on them, hexing them or suggesting they leap under a bus - t'aint me, honest grin
