Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I spent about 30 minutes composing a question and then posted it. Unfortunately I forgot to put any tags on it.

Now my question is not showing up (so I can edit the tags), and I am wondering if I lost all of that work. Is my question going to come up in time or what?

If it got saved as a draft, I can't figure out where to find that.

"If it got saved as a draft, I can't figure out where to find that." Try going back to the Ask Question page and see if it's still there. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Apr 18 '12 at 0:41
If it happens again, just hit Back after you fail to submit it. You probably don't have the history any more though – Ben Brocka Apr 18 '12 at 0:44
"Try going back to the Ask Question page". Yes, this worked. Thanks a bunch. – philologon Apr 18 '12 at 0:51

It won't let you submit if you don't add any tags. It will just refresh the page and show you:

If you closed the tab , thinking that it got submitted, don't worry, head off to "ask a question" and the draft will be there--provided you haven't written any other questions on the same site in the meantime.

The same goes for answers--they get saved as drafts, and can be accessed by going to the answer box on the relevant question page.
