You are a star.

And Greeker, you have a point, but I don´t think that the "preview" function deals efficiently with the two issues (responsability before posting and chatting on the forum).

In fact, I think those two little problems will always be part of such a big forum, unless you start banning members using their IP´s.

The comment function is necessary because...

a) it holds you accountable for what you say on this site. You cannot no more wriggle out of a situation that was of your making by saying i didnt know. Its giving more responsibility to the users about their conduct on the site.

b) It prevents QL from becoming a chat site, where tonnes of one line messages would sink the more needy posts (I think this has been said earlier). For example, more than once, i have seen some topics about info i needed get sunk with stuff like 'good morning/evening/afternoon QL' threads. Am not saying its unnecessary, but the comment function would have people thinking again before they post. It does me.

These two are enough reasons for the admins to add the function and i support their move. But since Qatari said that there would be a review whether it needs to stay or not, it just might go. Personally, i wouldnt cry if it went. ;)

It's not the preview function we need Qatari, it's a way to ban people so that they stay away. :)

That damn preview function is so annoying...I wish it wasn't there. Oh wait, I can remove it... ;)

I'll take it off because Butterfly asked but if people start with the craziness I'll have to put it back on.

I despise the preview function. I can't be bothered to edit what I put on the internet.

I love the preview function. Makes me think twice before hitting "post".

Also, I hope it stops users from using this forum as a casual chat lounge with one line messages.

I was the only one. Even with the preview function I either still get it wrong or dissatisfied with what I wrote. It just slows me down but on the upside im more picky when it comes to contributing to certain threads and more concerned about the quality of my writing....which is still bad me thinks! :-P

I really hate it too! I never reread again what I wrote one time! You can preview it even if you just double check before you post it! So this function is just so unnecessary!

yes, the reason is that when the site is slow, which happens every now and then, the preview function makes it even more annoying and slow to post a comment.

I don´t think it serves to any purpose. I never bother to re-read what I type and and roll down to press submit as quickly as possible... I don´t think that the preview function will stop some people from posting BS at times....I wonder how many members "really" preview their comments before posting?

It is there for a reason. Earlier, there were instances when people wrote something before checking what they had written. It blew out of proportions and there were a lot of hungama on line. QL mods installed it just to make sure that you are typing exactly what you wanted others to read. It was a way of avoiding people from making the excuse that "i didnt know THAT was what i typed..." etc... It may be annoying, but its necessary. Just my thought...
