I created a post about this same issue a couple months ago but it appears to have resurrected. The issue is when you are creating a question in the Android app, if you change the screen orientation, it prompts you to Discard or Resume. It happens on both horizontal and vertical orientation changes.

In my other post, I stated that if I hadn't entered any text yet it doesn't happen but this time that doesn't seem to be the case. The first time I changed the orientation without entering any text it did not prompt me but that was the only time. I closed the app then tried again without entering any text and it did prompt me, as did it on a third and forth try. After I have already started a question and change the orientation, it seems to happen every time.

The other post also stated that turning the screen on and off while the error was showing caused a second prompt. I tried this but was not able to duplicate it using those steps.

Reference to the post I've mentioned: Orientation Change Saves Draft and Prompts to Discard/Resume

I'm on version 0.1.70

I'm assuming this is a new bug with similar symptoms so posting a new question seems fair enough – Richard Tingle Nov 30 '13 at 23:32
@RichardTingle yes, it was originally fixed but seems to have popped back up. I just wasn't sure though and didn't want to accidentally use the site wrong. Thanks for the comment. – Brian Nov 30 '13 at 23:40
The correct procedure when a bug reoccurs is to post a new report, so you're good. – Adam Dec 1 '13 at 1:15
@AnnaLear thanks for the confirmation, much appreciated! – Brian Dec 1 '13 at 1:19

This is now finally fixed for good. My fix for it last time was just a bandaid since I put logic for not showing it in the actual ask interface, where as the rotation was actually creating a ripple effect starting at the parent of that view.

This will be in the update (0.1.85) coming out tonight around midnight UTC.
