Drafts Not Saving Correctly?

William2William2 Posts: 3,382Member, Arbiter
So, a bit ago I started typing up something massive that I was going to post on the forums. One time, I make a ton of progress, save the draft like ten times, come back to work on it more later, and -poof- half of my hard work is gone. I quit for a while after that, and last night I got bored, so I said, "Hey, why not work on that thing?" Well, I saved it a bunch, come back to it today, and BAM-it's all gone to the place where I started. I want to know why this is, is there a certain character limit for posts? Is my iPad buggy? Is it Vanilla's fault? Have any of you experienced it?

To prevent further deletions, I'm going to type it in a word document and copy and paste in here, but it's rather annoying having so much hard work deleted.

    There's definitely a character limit. I think it's something like ... I want to say 50k characters? But I've run into that issue when copy/pasting large amounts of text.

    I know for sure there is. However, it's strange that drafts have a character limit and posts don't... Or at least as small. I'm pretty sure, though, it's a set limit on how much storage a draft can take up. (50MB, et al)

    What are you using to access the forums? I've had major troubles with using it on a mobile. Saving drafts was one of the issues.

    I have never been able to save drafts. They are never there

    I'm just using Safari on my iPad (I think I have 9.1)
