Draft Posts "Fly" to Oblivion
« on: December 22, 2012, 08:41:27 AM »
Any thoughts about why, frequently, when I click "Save as Draft," my draft post doesn't go to "Drafts" and seemingly disappears into cyberspace?  Any suggestions about attempting to retrieve these lost drafts?  It's irritating.

Have you tried clicking "Profile" in the main menu bar, then clicking "Show Drafts" in the "Profile Info" box to the left of your profile page?

Yes, Peter, that's what I do, and quite frequently, the message doesn't get there.  I first thought that I had retained too many old drafts, but I've deleted many and I had the problem last Friday, again.  Merry Christmas.

I've had the same problem before.

Don't reply on the draft function is my advice.

I have gotten into the habit of copying posts (especially longer ones) to clipboard before clicking post, preview, or save as draft after having lost posts here and there over many years and many forums.
