Fixed Draft saved after thread creation

    Sometimes when you create a thread a draft is saved. So when you create another thread you see already filled text fields.

    As far as I know, this is expected behavior.

    Just hit the "Delete draft" button before you leave the page.

    Yeah, I did exactly that, but doing that more than once is really frustrating.

    I agree. Have not tested but if this happens like you say then that would annoy me.

    I just created a thread and waited until it said saved draft and then posted it. Went to post another thread but all was good. I had no draft show up.

    This happened to my wife a couple days ago. After she had posted a thread, the saved content showed up again. Only happened once though.

    In the same way drafts of posts are thread specific, drafts of threads are forum specific.

    If you attempt to create a thread in the Bug Reports forum but don't post it, the draft will only show up if you attempt to create a thread again in that particular forum. I believe drafts are pruned after 24 hours.

    The easy way around this is to just hit the "Delete draft" button before you leave the page.

    Well I created 5 threads within the hour in this forum section so that proves the idea that the bug should be fixed :)

    It's not a bug, though. It's working as designed.

    It's a bug. Draft was saved after I posted a thread. I don't want to create exactly the same thread again.

    It's a bug or it was a bug? You said above that it has not happened since and should be fixed. I still can't replicate it.

    It's still a bug, it hasn't happened again yet because I hadn't posted more than one thread per forum since then.

    I think this is a race condition that manifests itself a bit differently than with quick reply...

    I believe this is fixed now, though if it's a race condition, the real proof will only be if it doesn't happen again. :)
