Notes on Wikis

I will start off saying that right now I am RAGING. So mad right now. I just spend two hours working on careful, meticulous notes. I stored them and it came up as an "error" so I went back to the previous page and all the notes were GONE. Moral of the story: SAVE YOUR NOTES EVERY FIVE SECONDS ON A WIKI.

Questions on Wikis
Q: Why haven't they created an auto-save feature yet? Wikis have been around much longer than blogs. Blogs have auto-save... wikis don't.
A: I'm really not sure 100%. According to ... the mother-wiki it says that "A defining characteristic of wiki technology is the ease with which pages can be created and updated. Generally, there is no review before modifications are accepted. Many wikis are open to alteration by the general public without requiring registration of user accounts. Many edits can be made in real-time and appear almost instantly online. However, this feature facilitates abuse of the system. Private wiki servers require user authentication to edit pages, and sometimes even to read them." Maybe it's so other people can be editing at the same time as you without both of your type showing on the page at the same time?

Q: What if someone was editing at the same time and deleted a big chunk of something while the other person was working with the same chunk the former had deleted? Upon saving, would either show up?

Q: Why can't it be like Google Docs where you share a document with multiple people and can ACTUALLY work on it with each other in real time?
