This task is about an issue where a comment someone had drafted using the Reply Tool was lost when they attempted to publish said comment to a page/conversation that was "closed" in the time between they started drafted said comment and when they clicked the `Reply` button.
//[@ProcrastinatingReader](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User%3AProcrastinatingReader) reported this issue at en.wiki here: https://w.wiki/mzx. //
1. Open the Reply Tool and start drafting a comment with it
2. Using a different account, "close" the section in which the comment you were replying to in step "1." belongs, using a template like [Template:Archive](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Archive_top)
3. Switch back to the account you were using in step "1."
4. Click the "Reply" button to post the comment you drafted in step "1."
5. The page refreshes and the comment you drafted in step "1." and attempted to publish in step "4." is lost. //See: [diff=989736218](https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=989736218&diffmode=source).
6. **TBD: should people be presented with a warning upon clicking the "Reply" button that prevents them from saving? Is it possible to post the drafted comment //within// the now-closed conversation? Something else?**
=== Open questions
- [ ] What should happen when someone attempts to post a comment in a section that is closed in the time between they started drafting their comment and when they click the Tool's `Reply` button? //See: "Step 6." in `===Behavior` above.//
- [ ] "Expected" behavior is implemented
