I am frustrated with the way posting works in the forums. Answered
I just spent the last hour writing a post in the forums, only to have the software delete the whole post when I attempted to add a photo to it. This is completely frustrating, mostly because I know it could have been avoided.
Sure, now I've learned my lesson to save my post before attempting to add a photo, but what little I know of web programming tells me this minor disaster could have been avoided with a simple prompt to save what I had already written before adding the file for the photo. I was very nearly done with the whole post and now I have to type the whole thing over or decide if it's even worth it to do so. I got up early this morning so I could complete that post.
Is there any way the programmers for Instructables could look into an auto-save feature or a prompt to remind users to save their work before adding photos? Instructables may be missing out on some very good content for their forums from people who don't feel like re-typing a lengthy post.
