:hail: :grr: Why is it that everytime I press "submit review" I get a error saying I can only write a review if i'm logged in?

HOW THE HELL WOULD I EVEN BE MAKING THE DAMN REVIEW IF I'M NOT?????

And I'm sorry if it seems like I'm coming angry at you guys, but for fucks sake! Does this have to happen every damn time I press the "submit" button.

Oh and what makes it golden is when I finally do log in, I'm brought back to an empty review space, meaning it DELETED MY ENTIRE FUCKING REVIEW, AND THAT I HAVE TO TYPE OUT THE ENTIRE GODDAMN THING AGAIN!!!!

I assume you've never heard the terms "session timeout" or "auto logout".

Additionally, I will never understand why some people won't save usually long-ish texts like reviews somewhere locally first. It would never occur to me in a million years to type out an entire review from scratch directly in the submission form. It's like writing your thesis on a bunch of napkins. Just inviting disaster.

Even so, you can save your draft multiple times before submitting.

Right, true, but I still prefer to have my writings on a local hard drive too.

Anyway, just another reason why the OP only has themselves to blame.

'pacman follows the Hunter S. Thompson style in his writing, listens to the album just once while on ketamine, then stays up for three weeks pondering its merits, before crawling over to his keyboard to punch out his lucid thoughts in a 40-minute blast. there's no time to consider a safety net, not that he'd ever want one, as it'd take the edge off his writing...

If deathmetulpacmans way of writing here is how he writes reviews I don't believe the site have missed out on any by him failing to submit them.

Very necessary thread necromancy.
