Duplicate [Suggestion] Save quick reply contents

    My knowledge of PHP does not go further than basic syntax & my knowledge of Javascript is basically zero, so forgive me if I want something that's plain impossible :p

    Regardless, I was replying to a thread just now & wanted to hit the reply button on several posts people made, on two pages. What I had to do was copy the first quote-reply-bbcode-thing, change pages, paste it into the box again, then continue replying to the other posts & going on with my life.

    Potentially genius, but most likely insane & unworkable idea: what if the quick reply saves anything you type on a topic for as long as you are on that topic? What I mean is...

    • Type "I like rusty spoons" into the quick reply
    • Switch pages (on the same topic)
    • Still have that exact same "I like rusty spoons" in the quick reply
    • Leave the page -> quick reply content gets deleted (or after X minutes or so, not sure).
    You get the idea. As said, it sounds pretty unworkable & resource-consuming, but I thought I'd throw it out there as I have nothing better to do :p

    I like the suggestion. If you are typing and drafts like in gmail are saved, .. wonderful. :)

    I like the suggestion, too. It's very rare for me to deliberately navigate away from a page if I've already started writing a response, but it would be handy for those times when you accidentally click on a bookmark, or something.

    Or those times you accidentally press CTRL+I+Space (Opera Home shortcut).
