Persistent Draft Auto-Save Disruption
I am not sure how long this has been occurring, but I have recently noticed that when drafting a reply to a post, the site temporarily disables the editing box/submission button while it saves the draft every minute. This has become very disruptive when drafting longer responses as it basically lags the whole page when the procedure is in progress. I am sure the end users network chain (device, browser, LAN, IP) will impact the duration of the interruption which is not really controllable by the site. I have only experienced this on the full site on a PC, moble site seems unaffected.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it really necessary to auto-save drafts every minute?
