Maybe I missed something, but is there a way to save a new thead or a new post? When my internet connection drops out, I, of course, have to log in again. But then there seems to be no back up file available. Which means I have to start all over again. I would really appreciate a save function or even an, let us boldly go were no one has gone before, auto-save function.
If I understand you correctly, you wonder if there is a way to automatically save the draft before you create a thread or post. I haven't seen that function on other boards, and I can't see that it's possible to create such a function on this forum. Maybe Clayton knows more though.
I know the feeling of writing a long post and then having it dissapearing. My own solution is to write long texts in Word and then copy and paste it in the forum post. When it´s posted, put the Word document in the trashbin. I do this on many forums when the post is long.
You understood correctly: desperately need a save-option. Strange that no one in forum-land came up with a simple feature like 'save'. Good to hear though that I'm not the only one who is confronted with loosing his work. Thanks for the tip, I'll change my workflow and will prepare the thread in Word in future.
