Allow questions to be saved as drafts prior to posting

So maybe this is a feature request. I sometimes goto Ask Question to search... because after I type the title I get a bunch of suggestions. So then I look at the suggestions and see if there is an answer buried somewhere in there, but.... I don't always find anything I can use.

And then once I start typing the question the Similar Questions sidebar is populated, and I go search there. But I've already typed up half of my question. And sometimes I have to push that question onto the stack, but I don't have a way to save off my unfinished question. Also, maybe I'd phrase my question better if I could step away and come back to it later after lunch, coffee, a nap...

Yes my most recent attempt at asking a question is sort of sticky. But that's only 1 question, and I'm not sure that it roams between Chrome instances for when I'm at work or at home.

Any suggestion is helpful.

So I think I'm requesting a way to save drafts of my questions.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • I would just save the draft locally somewhere, or open the related links in new tabs. – Pëkka Jan 9 '13 at 19:05
  • @PopularDemand yeah this seems like a duplicate of that question. Don't know why I didn't find it -- except I didn't use the word Draft in my title. – lucidquiet Jan 9 '13 at 19:09
  • @Pekka I do that now, but that's just side stepping the lack of the feature. I use google drive to store my questions when I remember to (even though I tend to start my question or answer right before I leave work and rather not take some extra time to copy my title and question to google). – lucidquiet Jan 9 '13 at 19:12
  • It happens. The important thing is you got your answer. Plus you can feel good about independently coming up with a well-liked idea. – Pops Jan 9 '13 at 19:12
