It's quite annoying to lose partially-typed posts to a misclick or other similar issue. A lot of forums prevent this with a "Are you sure you want to abandon this post before submitting it?" warning. It would be useful to have one on BGG.

In memorium. Bob Hoover died 25 Oct 2016 at 94. In WWII he was shot down in a Spitfire and stole an FW-190 to escape. He spent decades at air shows flying Ole Yeller, shown

A related forum error screwed me over on this lack of saving submitting posts again. Only happens here; other forums you can hit the back button after a forum screwup and it'll still have the text of your post saved and ready to re-submit.

That's a solution, thanks.

An even better one would be if there was a warning prompt built in to the site, so that no one must suffer as I have after hammering out a helpful reply on a mobile phone, only to have it disappear into the nether. The site is being retooled anyways, may as well implement standard quality of life improvements.

The problem is that for a number of technical reasons, including being able to handle the million+ people a day using it, BGG dynamically creates its pages, which prevents that kind of behavior. The new BGG game pages seem even more dynamic.

Once you Preview, you may be able ask your browser to go back to the Preview and resend the preview version. But that's not as safe as Lazarus.
