I need a feature for saving draft posts in my account in some sites like Math.SE. I use different computers and sometimes have several questions to be asked once I find a computer with internet access. At least I don't forget them if I can save them in my account instead of discarding them before 20min obstacle or similar rules.

    I don't understand: how can you access to a S.E website and write a draft first if you don't have Internet connection? Feb 16, 2014 at 10:58
  • @MaximeLorant I think he means "I can only ask a question once every 20 minutes (due to rate limiting), so I'd like to draft all my questions so I don't forget them before I can ask them all Feb 16, 2014 at 11:10
  • @psubsee2003 Oh ok, make sense. Never reach this 20min rate limit, I don't even know it was existing. Feb 16, 2014 at 11:12
  • @MaximeLorant Just for your reference, the Complete Rate Limiting Guide details everything, but new users with <125 rep can only ask 1 question every 20 minutes. Feb 16, 2014 at 11:16
  • Oops, better: Better drafts feature for questions

The purpose of these sites is for when you've exhausted all research and attempts and still not been able to solve your problem so then post a question. Therefore you shouldn't ever really have a batch of questions to ask.

If you do then you probably haven't done enough investigation to solve them individually already.

Being able to batch then up ready to post would just encourage people not to do enough investigation, people will just write their questions in advance and post them all up.

  • I disagree. I can achieve what the OP is asking locally in a text file, but actually writing the question helps with research as you often find different things to search for when you try to explain your problem to other people Feb 16, 2014 at 11:21
  • Isn't the other point of these sites to gather all the information in one, easily accessible place?
