Now you are bullshitting about backups and how great they are like you are teaching niggas in your dad's farms. Get your shits together and stay calm  Cheesy

We are not talking about backups are you dumb? You proposed using Word and I tried to convince you it is not good for me, you insisted and made a fool of yourself.

FYI I make regular backups of my shit but not every single hour,  and a good drafting service would help me to do it more seamlessly: I could do a copy/paste/save operation every night and a preview operation much more frequently and I need preview button to save a draft for me more conveniently and smartly, still switching between Word and btctalk is not an option, don't be such a stupid arrogant troll and stop bullshitting about what you don't understand.

Multiple Lols. The only person who is making a fool of himself is the guy who stupidly lost content. Word isn't good enough for you but losing posts is? Fine. Have it your way. Content gone. All this could have been simply avoided but you think this forum owes you a bespoke drafting feature. It doesn't. You lost content because of your own naivety and foolishness. Posting that content in a word document or notepad would have solved all your problems but apparently writing or copy and pasting into something other than this forum is too much work and wholly unacceptable. Well great job, you lost your stuff and it doesn't look like you'll learn your lesson. Meanwhile, I'll keep anything important that I may need in a notepad or word document like I have been doing for years and I've never had these issues. Seriously, you need to get over yourself and your refusal to use anything else to make sure your content is safe and saved elsewhere otherwise you only have yourself to blame.
You are rehashing backup shit. Backups are great but utilities are great too. Is it that hard to chew? As I said using Word is not an option for me to make drafts for my posts in btctalk. I've tried it multiple times it just doesn't work, I become distracted and lose the theme. It is why I need drafting support, no need to trolling anymore.

1- Don't keep multiple drafts for a subject (post/pm) just keep the latest version.

Absolutely not. The handful of times I needed a draft it was usually some old version of a post where I messed up bbcode and wanted to go a few versions back.

Type long posts in a text editor and paste into the forum once you're ready. Or send a PM to yourself if you really don't want to use any other software.

You are rehashing backup shit. Backups are great but utilities are great too. Is it that hard to chew? As I said using Word is not an option for me to make drafts for my posts in btctalk.

Sounds very much like PEBKAC and not in the forum software.

This is the most peculiar reason I've heard in a long time. Still, you can quite easily write in the browser, and then copy-paste to Word/notepad/other periodically to save. Or download one of the several browser add-ons which will automatically save whatever you write in text fields. These are easy solution that would take literally seconds for you to implement.

Yes, because why wouldn't any sane person do this? Back up anything important. If you want a draft then save a draft. Any author would have multiple drafts of something they're working on. Is that so hard to comprehend? You're expecting a forum software to do all this for you because you're too lazy or incompetent to simply save this data in a notepad or word processor because of some ludicrous reasons.

It's called incompetence (or trolling). I'm not sure how copy and pasting text into something other than this forum is distracting or loses a 'theme'. He could write his posts on this forum all day long if he insists. Just make sure you copy and save them somewhere else so you don't run into this stupid problem he has.

How would it be possibly strange? I never use  word  processors for producing content for a forum and I write a lot on forums, have been doing this for years. Copy/pasting to text editors for backup purposes is ok but not very convenient.

Why not improving the drafting feature after all? We have 100 post space available for drafts, why not using it in a smarter way? It is easy peasy, for instance:
Regarding storage. Though I do suppose that you could instead change the draft feature to 100 unique thread replies/edits. (i.e. message ID or new replies to given threads)
OR we could just treat fresh posts differently letting them
1- To stay a lot more in draft status
2- being maintained as a single instance (overwriting previous instance)
While we keep a limited number of latest versions ( 3 for instance) of each (already saved) post edit history.

Such a policy would help keeping track of drafts for much longer periods of time and for more posts at the same time without new storage requirement. The key would be distinguishing between edit and new operations, not a big deal imo.
