Draft options. I.e. multi-session editing ability.
« on: December 02, 2011, 09:18:54 PM »
I notice that bmr has a save "as draft" option for threads and pms, and i was wondering if it might be possible to implement something similar here.
I recognize that the number of people that would use this could cause some space issues or something similarly out of my depth. However, I think it would be a useful addition especially for people like me who browse from a shared computer and a smartphone. I can't save to a word file because i switch constantly between the two portals.
(Yes i know there are cloud services, but i dont feel like using them.)

Thanks for reading!

Personally my favourite option for those things is just to PM it to myself. Then I have it on hand for whatever computer I'm using and it's conveniently still a part of E. An option, anyway, as I can imagine even if your suggestion does come to reality it will take sometime. ;D

I use Google Docs, especially for writing game posts. ;)

Personally... I am very wary of cloud as well. On another note, E data isn't life-threatening material. I can feed the Big Brother from time to time in exchange for some peace. ;)

Yes, Google Docs is everyone's friend.

Google docs, Windows file sharing (Office live), drafts in email and PMing myself and the ubiquitous flash drives.  Whatever I have on hand and works at the time.

Flash drives would be the perfect solution, but I am -notorious- in forgetting them in the USB and remembering only when I need them, so they're a little useless for me. XD

One hoped for goal of the new CMS is live auto-saving a la Google Docs. That isn't hard, but I am pondering having some degree of history be possible.

I keep mine on links on my key ring since I never forget my keys.

Yeah, just make sure you just remember to send it to yourself and not to the user named Me. That... that's awkward.

It would be a nice tool. Especially since a microsoft word document (or equivalent) can't give you a preview of what your post will look like at any given time. Previews are handy to make sure your code-tag-things-whatever-those-thingamajigs-are-called (("
" for example)) are working properly, among other errors which could go wrong.

I utilise the 'PM option' all the time and it works a treat but it's inevitable that sooner or later due to one reason or another (say lack of sleep for example) that you'll end up sending it to someone......

Surprisingly it wasn't as awkward as you'd think. Sure I personally felt awkward about the whole situation but the poor person who received that PM was really good about it. I suppose that's what you get from having such an awesome community of people like those here on E.

Huzzah for Elliquiy !!

I use Office and/or Scrivener with the files on Dropbox. That way I can use it on any of the Macs I have it installed on.. pop on the net, download it and then down to work on it.
