Now all forms are being saved every two minutes. You can find your autosaves in User Menu -> Drafts

If for some reason you did not submit a form, next time on the form page you'll see a prompt "Restore or Ignore". If you choose "Ignore" option, autosaved data will be deleted from the database permanently.

No saving happens while the Ignore/Restore popup is shown.

Please note that saved forms can't be restored if you re-login, so they're not meant to replace drafts.

This feature is still in beta testing. Please report any unexpected behavior/bugs.

I must be brain dead. Worked on a transliteration and tried to publish it. It vaporized on me. Had to do it all over again, what a treat. I looked in drafts...nada. Sad smile

I currently can't delete my draft. Is this a known bug?

A user had the same problem a few days ago.

Now there are two autosaved forms that I can't delete. I think these are from autosaving the drafts edit (or translation reply) form. They appear as:
en/node/1903965/edit
en/node/1902081/edit
When I click on them, I'm getting 404 error.
Logging out and then logging in didn't help.

@lt, thanks, now there are none of those. But did you fix the reason behind their appearance?

We suspect the reason was temporary, resulted by some server updates.

OK, I'll try to repeat it with my next translation and tell you the result.
