I am running Threads 7.1, got a gripe from a user here.

If you compose a private message and then submit without a subject line, the nag screen comes back telling you to use the back button. But when you do, all the text in the post is wiped out.

A perfect fix... fill in the subject line...

i guess you could add in a bunch of javascript, for each form, that would validate required fields are filled in before submitting, but you'd have to think after messing up a couple of messages you'd learn from your mistakes and fill in the field?

smile True. But we all make a mistake once in a while.

We do, but our browsers, for very good reasons, almost never cache forms. Hitting back loses the content we've just filled out, but the alternative is potentially worse.

I'd like to eventually see the error page populate that same form, with the current warning at the top; this would allow no loss as the data would re-populate in the same form on the error page to allow you to fix your booboo's...
