I clicked on the Ask Question Mothership on the parent site, and the form was already filled out with information for a question I have already asked.

I asked that question days ago. I'm not sure whether this is Chrome trying to be helpful and remembering the data I filled out or something relating to StackExchange.

Has anyone else experienced something like this?

As badp pointed out, this is likely a saved draft

There is one draft per site, per user, per type of post (question, answer).

    But the point is that I actually asked the question already. Shouldn't the draft be discarded when the question gets asked? Feb 6, 2011 at 23:20
  • sounds like a race condition...
