Obviously in some browsers you can click "Back" and it will auto-refill the cached form submission to avoid losing your work, but the site should not rely on this browser-specific behavior and should instead display an error to the user.

Edit: The same applies to a title with no body. Should display an error instead of refreshing the page and deleting my draft.

Indeed. I'll make it reload the edit form with whatever you've already entered and display an error. This'll probably be addressed on Monday or Tuesday.
