Drafts not getting deleted after the post is submitted

Is this happening to anyone else?

    It catches me occasionally, and has been for literally years, when I have a slow / intermittent connection on mobile; I've never observed it on anything hard-wired. Always just put it down to the connection quality.

    Yeah this happens to me all the time. One of the main reasons I wish we could disable drafts :(

    Seems it happens to me if I submit the same time as the draft saves. On mobile.

    So I have an additional report of this. Some follow up questions:

    Are all of you tabbed/multi-device users? Is it possible that you have a tab open with this draft in two places, published from one place, and then the draft saves again in some other? This seems like a logical conclusion and very easily possible and I want to rule it out as whats happening.

    this happens to me only on my phone (because i use the adblock script for drafts on desktop) and i can't think of a time i've ever had multiple forum tabs open at once

    No, its only ever happened to me when I'm using a single device/tab. Also, usually this happens on my desktop, hardwired fiber connection (75/75) so I don't think it's connectivity.

    I've never had this happen to me other than when not really obviously having a million tabs open or having chrome weirdly suspended rather than closed on my phone, and reopening a forum page. I'm trying to think of ways to reproduce it, but even deliberately posting while the draft saves does not give me a draft back in the post box.

    i think any time it has happened for me the draft save banner pops up instantly after i hit post comment but it’s not something i’ve ever been able to make happen on purpose

    and it’s pretty rare, just irritating when it does happen

    Not as irritating as the draft save banner m i rite /nudge nudge

    But for real

    Also yes it doesn't happen that often because I think it has to do with the timing of hitting the button
