Actually, you could tell everyone that more things will be added soon. You could always edit it later as well. It's basically "saved" already. Great idea though!

I know ( or hope) I'm not the only person who has to redo all of the work that they lost, and it's just horrible if it was especially long, and we can't remember our main points.

And adding on to your idea, maybe there could be an autosave for the posts we're writing, say every ten seconds, it saves all that you have written so far. If what was in the text box is posted, then the "draft" would get deleted from the folder it was held in. I really like this idea, and it would help me out so much, so rep!
Thats a really good idea! Thanks for your input!

The closest you'll get is a "notepad" option where you can jot down notes and such, but I don't know if WI has that installed here [I haven't looked] and I can't recall what the size limit is [from the sounds of it, I don't think it's going to be big enough to handle what some would like to do].

So ... your best shot is to contact the creators of vBulletin with your idea and see if it's something they could at least put in as an option.
Oh ok i see, but i still hope it might be able to happen

That would be more than useful in many different ways. Not only should threads be able to be saved, but posts, PMs, and VMs should also work this way. Sometimes there is not sufficient time to completely write something up, and other times a screen can accidentally be x'd out (which happens to me quite often, actually). I could use a save feature at all times in the day.

I have had trouble saving messages in Microsoft Word because when I try to re-post them to WI it gives me some sort of error; possibly the one for BB Code Font - it must automatically switch it in Word and I don't know how to change it back.

Let's hope something comes out of this idea! Thanks for bringing it up!
Exactly! and we have many problems like that where we lose posts all the time! thanks for posting!

Thanks!

Another thing that annoys me when I'm making a thread is VMs and PMs. I get TONS of them, and I'd like to be able to save my thread so I can answer those and not have them stack up to 8 or 9.

Thats an awesome idea! If it was implemented, then the quality of threads would probably raise, because people would have time to get all of their ideas in, revise, etc. Rep to you!

Yes, it could happen - but WI cannot make it happen alone. It would have to come from the makers of the vBulletin software first, and then WI could take advantage if it chose.

As it stands now, it's not even possible to put in - because the capability doesn't even exist.
