I began asking a question, that was more experience sharing, because I didn't know what the question was. After much terrible story telling and things I may have only wrote because they somehow chronologically make sense to me in to hope of figuring out my question.

Terrible question, but my train of thought did leave me to a question that is measured by my system and varies majorly when using a third-party device.

It's late, and I don't want to think about it anymore. three are a small number of issues causing bizarre behavior, even to the point of RMAing my MBP 16, but I don't think it's the problem I just don't feel like rewriting my question, even though it's pretty concise and an entirely new inquiry.

But where's the save draft for later? Publish or destroy

I recommend a user space where a collection of thoughts can be returned to. Because that's how life and the mind are. Make it simple and private, or make it collaborative by invitation or something.

    Interesting idea, not sure it scales though. I have too much rep to test this, but can’t you just post and immediately delete the question, and then edit and undelete later?

  • @nohillside That was my workaround. Hoping it didn't bug mods. Commented Feb 17, 2022 at 8:13
  • We don‘t even notice :-)

But where's the save draft for later?

There is no such button because it is automatically saved. This happens on the server and the draft is tied to your account, so if you use another browser or another device, you can continue writing. It also works for answers.

The draft has a lifetime of 7 days and you get one question draft only at any point in time; if I need to store something for a longer time, I usually use Apple's Notes app, or a GitHub gist which supports Markdown.

  • Thank you for the lifetime factoid, and the good gist suggestion. Sounds like no trouble for me. Commented Feb 17, 2022 at 8:11

While looking for my deleted question much to my surprise all of my deleted and forgotten questions.

The hyperlink is: https://apple.stackexchange.com/users/deleted-questions/[YourUserID]

There are five of them, and one banish with true vitriol, a negative six!

This is probably a better home for them looking back. enter image description here
