So, I read on the site or wherever that I must exit my Warcraft client before uploading the .lua, because the system/addon has to close something properly. My question is, in the event that:
1. I take census,
2. I log off that character and log into another,
3. my client hangs and crashes with what I assume is, from an addon perspective, an ungracious exit...

has the census data been saved 'properly', because I logged out of the character? Or has something gone wrong because of the crash and the data I got is bad-ified and I shouldn't bother to upload?

LUA is saved when:
- Logging out of toon
- Exitting game
- Reloading UI

Since exitting obviously means you stop playing completely, a frozen game means you loose the data since last reload or toon switch.. Nothing more.

This also applies to all other addons/settings..

ah, thanks so much ^_^. I did like an hour's worth of census on a realm that has low submissions, and I was like 'oh gosh please tell me I didn't just lose all of that ;__;.' so yeah, thanks \o.

As Fukie said, this is a Blizzard thing. Addon authors have no control on this action.
