When writing a story, which for me can take months and months, i sometimes spend many hours sitting in front of my computer writing sentence after sentence. Is there ANY way to incorporate an autosave function on in the Editor? *ahem* google mail does it *ahem* lol

I'd like this as well. Otherwise a site time-out can lead to lots and lots of lost work.

Not to derail the thread, but where the fuck have you been, Fleshy?

Yes. I guess it's probably preferred to being able to close out of a page and NOT save, thereby reverting your changes?

I think that clicking the 'x' should prompt you: "Discard all changes?" The autosave should mostly be a feature aimed at stopping a time out from losing you all of your work. IE: You hit "Close and Save Changes" but you'd been editing for six hours and the site goes to: "Timed out" and you lose it all.
