    I just wrote my Mass Effect Review, and because my computer is stupid and my mouse doesn't work, it clicked on the EVE online banner by accident, and now I LOST EVERYTHING I WROTE!

    Can you please make it so that if that happens, you don't have to rewrite everything?

    Write it in word or notepad before you bring it to GR. It's only common sense.

    there is, unfortunately, no way to make your computer save something from here. until you hit submit, our server can't even see what you are doing.

    I do that sometimes, but most of the time when I do reviews, its spur of the moment, and it comes to me then, so it is fustrating when it happens.

    Oh well, next time I feel like writing about Mass Effect I will.

    Do what I do and put it in a Word document first and then just copy it over.

    Not sure why this wasn't mentioned before, but you should do what I do and put it in a Word document first and then just copy it over.

    And I know how you feel, many a time I've done the same thing, completely erasing a review.

    Personally, I prefer to Ctrl-C the entire review some time between when I finish typing and when I click the Submit button.

    That way, should I stuff something up somewhere, re-writing is just a Ctrl-V away.
