Replying or posting threads just goes to draught

I have a website/forum problem.

Description of my problem

I post a new thread, type some stuff, then click the "post button"
What I expect to happen is the thread is posted
What happens is I am presented with the same window, with all the text missing, but a clicky that says I have 1 saved draught. I click this, it replaces my text, I fill in the tread title again, and click "post" only then does it post.

Frustrating on my PC, but on my ipad, it doesn't give me a clicky to saved draught, so unless I remembered to copy and save the text, I have to retype the whole thing.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Noticed this too. Seems like it happens far less frequently if your post doesn't take much longer than a few minutes to write.

"Tomahawks?"

"----in' A, right?"

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

"----, you pay me half that and I'll hump in some c4 and blow the ---- out of it my own damn self."

only way to post properly on those forum is to edit in a text editor then copy past and post.

this is a knwon issue on the "new" forum where text get eaten.

don't expect it to be fixed any time soon....
