cannot be duplicated, so probably I was all jazzed up at the time and didn’t experiment carefully, so never mind.
I guess having had no windows for a good part of my life I am willing to go a bit crazy; last time I shut down the big rig it took an hour I musta had 75 windows from 17 apps going, lotta remainders about things I had been up to but moved along from. Which.
I’d still be happier having the draft go away when I leave the thread; it’s always offered when I hit reply button If I had but one thing to fix about these fora, that mightn’t be it.
Nevertheless, I've lost some significant amount of content I was writing (to the point where I've given up and decided not to say anything) by accidentally opening some other related link from the tab where I was preparing a reply (instead of the separate tab/window like I meant to use) (using the old forum software, or several other forums that behave similarly.)
This "draft sticks around until you post or delete it" seems like a good thing. (Quora does something similar, and I like that too!)
I don’t mean they shouldn’t stick around. I too have lost stuff in the shuffle here and there. No great loss, but annoying.
And discord seems good at remembering partial thoughts in drafts - I just don’t like how it pops up a draft, for example, when I return to a thread where I’ve put something aside for later (or never, write lots more than post, haha) and am not there to continue writing… when I want to continue with my draft it should come back when I hit Reply, not before, not automatically when I enter the page.
Like it did just now, haha. I tested/confirmed that just now. So aggressive. Mostly here now when I am strukkling with the additional challenge of doing this on a tablet device.
But like I said, not the most important banana in the bunch.
