creation posting glitch
when i am posting creations and i take longer than 15 minutes to post one creation, it makes me sign in to post it. but, once i sign in, it takes me to a blank creation adding page. it says ''please write a name'' and ''write about your creation'' which i did already. so can you guys tell me whats going on?

Yeah, it's simply what we call "timing out." There are a few solutions to this problem.

I usually will make a few adjustments on the page where editing is done, then go to the bottom and click to see what I've got so far...once on the preview page, I'll click to go back and continue editing. This essentially resets the clock and allows more time. I repeat this process every few minutes to be safe.

I'll also highlight everything I've done in the editing window from time to time and "copy" the work to a notebook or Word file. This saves my work in case I run into any problems. By the way, I would recommend doing this when you've fully completed the editing process and are about ready to post. Save that work in a file permanently, so if MOCpages ever looses the page, you can quickly recreate the page.

My .02 for what it's worth.

After you've logged in and you're looking at the blank form, just press the "back" button a few times to return to your previously-filled-out form.
