There may be others, but these are the three I'm familiar with.

Request 1) to the completed page of each form, add a "reset form" button or link in order to discourage use of the back button
Request 2) do something to prevent use of the back button from the completed page of each form
Request 3) add an auto-refresh something that, after 30 seconds or so showing you what you submitted, clears the info and auto-presents you with a blank form

For now I've added form autocomplete=off, which disables caching on the form elements - they'll be empty when you hit the back button.

Looking into refresh (the form code is well after the normal refresh location, so I likely need to do this with javascript). I've added a link to each page to send you back to /[original-page]

The 4th isn't as likely to be used at game: /downtimes

I think form refreshes are in - I've verified it in playtest feedback, but not on the other forms - if anyone would like to check each, please do.
