What do you think folks? Shouldn't there be a "Save Draft" function here on myLot, many a times due to several reasons, your write up may not be completed nor can it be posted at that particular time. In that case, it can be saved for later edit and post. Reasons like fluctuating net connectivity, indulge in some other work while composing etc etc What's your opinion? How can we put this forward to the concern id?

I always write in Notepad first, then copy & paste the post. Some posts I will write ahead of time, and save on my computer and in cloud storage; others I will save with Evernote once they are written and published. After losing quite a bit of writing in the past, I no longer write posts/articles directly into sites.

that's specific to your case...as a general feature "Save Draft" can be handy to all users of myLot, unless there's some technical challenges, I dont think it should have been omitted

I always write in Microsoft Word and save my document. Then, I copy and paste it to mylot. I learned to do that early on, because I had disappearing posts all the time and it drove me crazy. Now, I don't have that problem anymore, at least.

Yes, I wish mylot had that feature. We used to have it on the B site. It did make it convenient sometimes, as I remember.

Yeah that would be good but sad part is mylot doesn't accept any such things. I recommended for gender and place but never be successful.

@nomus24g yeah I wants to make it compulsory. Why should we recommend if admin can delete posts then why cannot it checks the recommendations by itself from posts

I've had experiences before that's why i always write on a notepad first if i'm posting a new discussion. If i'm getting error messages, i always make sure to copy what i wrote before hitting the back button or refreshing the page. I would love to have that option here.
