Everyone here knows this big red sign starting with “Uh, oh”, that notices us about connection problem and that we have to copy&paste our changes to keep them.
But here is the question: why doesn’t it keep trying to get the server response? Why not to try reconnecting more, more and more times?
If the user still has been having a connection issue, Glitch could
alert() on window close/reload/etc. That’ll block user from going away because alerts stop any process execution on page.
It freaks me out when I do my stuff and, accidentally, the editor just freezes and the “red sign” shows up in the middle of the work.
