I normally try to avoid the rudeness that is the styling of most
web forums, but as the openSUSE mailing lists have been slow
lately, I thought I'd give one a go. I spent more than 15 minutes
composing a thread reply[1], clicked the preview button, and for my
effort was greeted with a message that my message was too short.
All my work had disappeared into the ether.

This precise question has been asked sometimes on the forum about
forum help area. It is known, yes. People that have been bitten by it
recommend to copy your text to any editor on your desktop, prior to
hit "send", so that if it fails, you can paste it an try again.

And, if instead of this mail list you tried the main opensuse mail
list, which some of the forum moderators read, they could help you as
well.

Besides that, my personal recommendation: use Thunderbird to access
the opensuse forums. Yes, Thunderbird, not Firefox. Or any other nttp
client you like - for instance, Seamonkey, claws mail, knode, pan...

How? See the FAQ:

<https://forums.opensuse.org/faq.php?faq=novfor#faq_nntp>

This is a wonderful feature of the Novell forums.


(and you will find that rudeness is not tolerated there - that's what
moderators are for, mostly :-) )
