Allow Live Event to be Restarted after accidentally hitting End
Please allow a Live Event to be restarted for a period of time (even just 5 minutes) after a presenter/producer accidentally hits End. I have been on several very large live events where one of the presenters/producers thinks they are just leaving, but they end the event for everyone. This causes a significant amount of lost time (and embarrassment). While additional warnings in the UI might lessen the problem, allowing the event to be restarted seems like the only way to really solve the issue (us humans struggle with not clicking on things... its just who we are).

Even in case of single producer, if his network fails, or his device hungs the Live Event is ended. These are things that might happen. Why don't you just keep it alive for 15, better 30 minutes after someone intentionally or unintentionally ends it.
Thank you so much.

The fact that someone even has to request this is crazy! Why does common sense have to be voted on? That is very telling!
The fact that the leave button is so small and insignificant, but the end button is centrald bright red, means that people's eyes are drawn to the wrong button!
PLEASE add a "are you sure" warning for producers! Crazy silly how easy it is to just end a live event!
I just discovered that a Presenter can remove a Producer which caused the event to pause but there was no way to restart it.

Agreed on confirmation button. If the Leave button could be more prominent and the End button has a confirmation, that would reduce accidentally ending. Ability to restart would be helpful also.

great idea - I have nearly done that myself
At the very least it would be nice to have a confirmation button for the desire to terminate an event so one accidental click doesn't kill an event involving thousands of people with no way to recover.
