Question: I jusdt typed a poem into the Submit A New Poem site. When clicking submit, the system asked me for password. When I went back to the poem it was gone. Any chance of retrieval?
Thanks for any help

    As one who rewrote the same longish poem three times - if you type the poem in rather than paste it, the new shorter time allowed by both servers on overload, and the site's mechanism itself, can be a menace. The only thing I found is to ignore any instructions that come up and backclick to the poem for submission (but slowly; it only re=appears slowly, and you can over-click and lose it for ever!) . Or perhaps you know this. I used to type straight onto screen; but the short time allowed for this drove me eventually to cut and paste. At least that gives one extra chance to edit!
