    Restore "auto-saved content". WOW

    I just discovered this. I noticed the forum software was "auto saving" my posts once a minute as I was writing them. Have you ever written a long post, spaced out and forgot to hit "submit" and surfed on? Your contribution disappears right and you have to start over? How many times have I done this? Oftentimes I just considered it the will of god and moved on-the universe was telling me to shut-the-f**k-up. Not in the new software. Simply go back to where you were> reply>go to advanced. On the bottom left corner of the advanced post grey "boundary box" is a button that says Restore Auto-Saved Content". Walah!!!! Your glorious verbiage reappears.

    Now if I could just recover someone else's words of wisdom rather than my own, that would be a great feature.

    I don't play the piano, I don't have a beard and I listen to AC/DC in the darkroom. I have no hope as a photographer.

    Cool feature but let's keep religion out of it. Wouldn't want self-banning or flagellation of the moderators next.

    I was lucky enough to discover this during my holiday in Egypt when 3 times in a row I lost what I was tapping in on the ipad, I was just about to throw the ipad at the wall when I saw the auto restore button, pressed button, breathe slow, then all was good.
