    Okay, I'll admit I think it's a long shot after this long.

    I was working on A Omake in the "More Options" Post Box, I was saving my drafts pretty regularly, but my Computer crashed/reset itself and when I tried to go back to it, It had reverted to what I had when I first went into the "More Options" which was sometime yesterday.
    I was wondering if there was any way to get those Drafts back, or if I'll have to (Mostly) Start that Omake again from scratch. It's not the biggest deal in the world but I thought I'd at least ask before starting again.

    I have noticed some people have Asked about Draft Recovery before, which this basically is, but neither of the two threads finished with a concrete answer.

    Sorry for not being good at explaining, And thanks for your time.
    Have a Nice Day all!

    You're going to have to restart again... there is the drafts "save" option... but like all things, you gotta save it.

    As said the problem wasn't saving drafts, it was when the computer crashed and I recovered session it went to "Confirm Resubmission" or something on the "More Options" Page.
    Which then when back to when I first went into "More Options" and overwrote the Draft.
    I think next time I'll make sure to open it in the regular conversation First.

    But still, I never expected it to be possible, just thought I'd ask

    Thanks for your time Bii! Have a nice day and all that good stuff :D

    For future reference:
    It's possible that your browser helpfully recovered the last version of the contents of that text box that it remembered. This has happened to me before. When this happens, sometimes there's a more recent version still on the server. If that's the case, I can usually get the more recent version back by reloading the page (or by loading that thread in a new tab).

    On the other hand, the draft on the server can be overwritten by your browser (such as if you started editing the older version, or possibly even just if you took too long to notice), so it's good to check this as soon as you notice it.
