Suggestion! We should have a "Save as draft" option

5년 전

Hi, new to Steemit so not sure if this was suggested before, but this thought came to me when I was in the middle of writing a post and suddenly had to run some errands. As I scrolled down to look for a "Save as draft button" , so that I could come back and write later, I couldn't find one. I eventually ended up copying and pasting it into my notes app. Which is not that big of a deal but I imagine it could annoy some users.

When I write, sometimes I do not want to post it right away cause I want to let it sit and come back to it later. Sometimes I just get writer's block. Sometimes I want to get a friend's opinion on it. The option to save my post as a draft directly on this website as utilized on sites like Twitter or email services like Yahoo Mail, would definitely be a small but necessary update.

Again, this is not at all a huge problem, but I think it would improve the user experience and improve productivity. What do you guys think?

Hi niquebs,
I'm glad to see that you're getting involved in this wonderful community, but this question has been asked / suggestion has been made several times before (it's possible to search through old posts from the website).
One of the existing posts on this topic is the great suggestion of a solution to this problem using GitHub by @lukestokes: working-on-a-long-steemit-post-save-the-draft-as-a-github-gist-file
