Sometimes someone wants to make a long topic. It would be nice if we didn't have to save, say, tutorials, to google drive to work on without losing it all.

The modorators are limited in what they can cutomise with the forums as they are using premade software, there may not be an option for drafts.

If its something you already posted, you can just edit the post. It also isnt a big deal to have to save elsewhere.

But if I make a reply and don't want to post it just now, it would be cool to save this and reply later.

Yes, but if you leave the page and open it again, it doesn't save.

Delayed response, I know. But if you are having issues with loosing posts for various reasons I would suggest using the Lazarus plugin. I use it on firefox and it probably exists for other browsers as well. What it does is basically save the content of any form you type into and let you load it on command.

Very, very useful.

I've had situations where this plugin has not restored correctly.

I would suggest making posts in an external program (Notepad/Word) if you know they will be long.
