When you accidentally clicked a button like refresh, the post saves in the drafts. very useful :wouhou:

say, you are tabbing 2 websites (lets use google and the support forum)

I go to google and google something, say a picture i want to add to a post.
when i click the tab to go back to the support forum, it opens as usual, but i had typed up a post, but rather than hitting the "send" button, you hit the "back a page" button (remember its an example)
Iv just lost all the info i just typed up, correct?

what he is suggesting (i think) is something that records what we type up so that we dont have to retype that information i just lost.

Wow, i lost myself up in typing that?

Has this helped or completely confused you (like myself lol)??

I don't think so. I type all of my posts up using Notepad first, that way, you can't lose it, and once it's all typed up, I just hit CRTL+C then CTRL+V.

How on Earth do you mistake the "Send" button for the "Go Back" button????

I completely understand what you are trying to say darren and i voted yes for the following reason ↓

Mouse. On my mouses, go back / forward buttons are on the side, if you are not careful you can press "back" really easily. It happened to me a couple of times when i had Mx518. With DeathAdder, this problem is gone.

Glad i could be the sun on ur cloud for the day.

Other than that good example you have there, you could have a younger brother that hits the backspace button.
And honestly, not alot of people use notepad before they make a post, and this would eliminate the risks of losing things.

I know the feeling, especually when you have something for your forum (that nearly takes every characture of the post up) and it goes poof!

Many times I've made a VERY long post and accidentally clicked my banner or some other link (not opening in new window, but changing the page!!!)
and have had to start again.

Voted yes.
