Cancelation prompt is unintuitive
After hitting the "Cancel" button when writing or editing a post, a prompt shows up that says
Any unsaved changes will be lost. Are you sure?
Hitting [Okay] will kick you out of the editor (as expected).
However, hitting [Cancel] will also kick you out of the editor, and will erase your save data.
While the second behavior is actually pretty useful, it isn't exactly intuitive – I would expect the Cancel on the prompt to mean "I didn't intend to click the Cancel button, let me continue editing."
If possible, I suggest using a three-button prompt instead, such as
Would you like to keep your saved draft?
[Keep draft] [Discard draft] [Continue editing]
This would make the choices much clearer from a user standpoint.
Probably even intended, given the status-completed tag there ↩︎
