Meta refresh is designed to Refresh the page,
in your case, the page is refreshed every 2 seconds.
If you want someone to fill in a form and then press submit,
you should remove the refresh completely.

If you want to refresh the page every -x- time untill someone starts
to fill in the forum i'd sugest you use a javascript timer,
which reloads the page, and onfocus of any form element or click on a stop-refresh link. stop the timer.

should be something like attached snipped,
which you add startTimer() onload
and put stopTimer(); in the onfocus=""
<script language="JavaScript">
 

var Timer = null;

var Counter = 4;

var Url = 'updatedelete.php';
 

function startTimer()

{

	Timer = setTimeout("updateTimer()", 1000);

	Counter = 4;
 

function updateTimer() 

{

	Counter = Counter - 1;

	If (Counter < 1)

	{

		clearTimeout(Timer);

		document.location.href = Url;

	}

	else

	{

		Timer = setTimeout("updateTimer()", 1000);

	}

}
 

function stopTimer()

{

	clearTimeout(Timer);

}
 

</script>
