I cannot for the life of me work out how to access it. Either it hasn't been implemented or it's hidden somewhere in an unintuitive place.

    They're automatically loaded into the quick-reply box at the bottom of a thread (if you have those enabled).

    If they are not working for you, we will need some more info such as your exact browser version and if you are running any plugins that may block stuff from saving.

    On the subject of saved drafts, is there a way to clear them? A few threads I've begun to type, or even finished typing messages have part of it permanently stuck in the box.

    Nope. Another feature I have asked for.

    Same for me. Could someone tell me where to find them? I saved an article I was typing up, cannot find it. I did save it.

    Well right now the only way to find them is to remember in which thread you were posting that post (new threads drafts aren't accessible). It currently lacks a list all drafts feature and of course a clear all drafts feature... The list is beginning to turn into a black hole if this keeps up :D


    Also quoting myself here:

    My advice if typing a long post is to use a text editor instead, that's what I always do, I don't trust "draft" features on forums...

    Has this changed? Or am I just reading your instructions wrong? I was writing a new discussion on subnautica and hit save draft but my brother tripped my PC and now it's gone. :(

    EDIT: Will be using text editor from now onwards

    AFAIK, the save draft only works on posts, not threads, it requires a thread as a location to save...

    Threads are kinda not saved yet to the database of the forums, before actually posting them. So the save draft option is quite useless in this case, as in not working. Also there is no actual option to see all your draft... They seem to be tied to the specific thread you saved it... That, or we are missing some feature/module to actually list our drafts


    Odd feature with half-assed implementation :(

    @Kouji_San
    Dammit :(
    I looked into the source code and it said it saved it with a "draft ID", so I was thinking perhaps there was a storage. Oh well I'll rewrite it up later (I mentioned you in it btw, haha :P)

    I might also MSG the devs and ask what the deal is, if I get anything back post it here for anyone in the future.

    @Comprox @AceDude are the one with the list of things wrong with these here forums. But IIRC they are dependent on Vanilla forums to fix or implement stuff...

    TG's win or lose mod that replaces the concede function is the best of both worlds and should be official.
