Ah! That's better! I thought Lumi was talking of a notepad or something... :oops:

This is great for Dream Journals like those of mu.

Can those Drafts be carried between threads?

:wtf: are drafts, you say?  Well..  Has this ever happened to you?
  • You're in the middle of posting a long dream, and some silly RL person or situation suddenly requires your attention for the foreseeable future?
  • You're posting during a scary thunderstorm, or with an "exciting" computer that does fun and unexpected things, and you're afraid the post is going get zapped.
:yes:
and you forgot this:
  • You're posting during the morning, between 8 and 10 am, and your Internet connection is always going down inexplicably during those hours.

Not sure what you mean.  When you open a draft, whether from the profile screen, or from the load drafts link below posts, the same thing always happens:  you are taken back to the topic in which the draft was saved.

In other words, drafts are always associated with the topic in which they were saved.  If you are asking if the draft can be posted in a different topic from which it was saved, I suppose you could just copy its text, go to the other topic, start a new reply and paste it.

Shaky internet connection..  Yes, a quite capital reason for drafts.  Don't know how I missed that one.  :goodjob:


That would be great and very useful, mu. Thanks.  :)
You're welcome.  I hope it serves you well.  :)


Thanks, mu and Lumi!
Welcome.  I would have never thought of it, so I'm happy she did and so many here like it.  :)

;-D  You're very welcome maya!  :content:
That's a cool side-effect I hope happens often when I change something here, RCs and stuff.  :chuckle:  I know you (like me) have long DJ entries.  I think I heard you complain about that before too.  Glad it's so helpful.  :)

:shakehead:  Well, not anymore!  (I like how you and SS made them list items too.  I should go add them.)

Drafts.  They're not just for breakfast anymore!

It's a very good feature :) Thanks

I am sure such a feature would have saved quite a few posts from oblivion!

Can the drafts feature be altered to save the tags, date, and number of DLF in the dream journals section as well?

Wait..  Tags can't be entered until the message has been posted, unless there's a way to do it I'm not aware of.  If not, we'd have to create another way.

Tags can be entered during the message creating process, afaik.  There should be something like this:

Subject [________________________________________________]
Tags [__________________________________________________]
Message Icon [_Standard__]
