    I've lost count of the number of times I've lost posts... for a variety of reasons, during their submission to ADV.

    I'm trying to submit ride report posts from places that often have crappy net connections. Case in point, I just put together and then lost 90 minutes of editing from an internet cafe.

    Every other forum I participate on... not many... has an autosave feature and I can recover it.

    Not here.

    Any reason why it can't be turned on?

    vBulletin 3.8 does not have an autosave feature, it's on vB 4.0 and higher. We are looking into upgrading.

    In your case, use Wordpad to draft your report, then copy and paste it to your post.
