Question

copy and paste

hi guys,
I use copy and paste all the time, I am on several forums where I may ask a question on one forum and then copy and paste that same question to other forums to get a better change of my question being answered,
I found one forum that does not let me copy and paste to, I can type in my post word for word that then waits for the post to be authorization for that forum ,when the post is put up on the forum, I can then copy and paste from that post with no problem,
I would like to know why that forum stops me using copy and paste, please help and thanks for your time,
bluesfloyd.

Clarification Request
Name names.

In reply to: copy and paste

I can't guess what's going on here. If it's this forum I can alert it to be answered.
If it's at the dogecom forum, you'll have to ask them.

Then again you might get banned for cross posting. It's frowned on since the beginning of the internet. Read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossposting

Some forums autodrop such posts without notice. This may upset those that want to do this.

Without a name

All I can do is guess they don't like crossposting. Some forums just clean that off when found.

Sometimes CTRL-V works when other ways don't. Don't know...

...if you've tried that or not. Worth a try if you haven't.

Good luck.

do they allow images?

In reply to: copy and paste

If so, make a screen capture of the text and then post the image instead.
