Bits & Pieces

This morning I had an idea of something I wanted to post, but I was in the middle of getting breakfast ready… and now I’ve forgotten what it was. 😐

Some people think that if it’s important, then it will return sooner or later, but I’m not so sure about that. For members of the community, I strongly recommend using the drafts feature to quickly jot down an idea, and then instead of clicking the blue “Publish” button at top right, to use the “Save draft” link to the left of it — and then it will be saved to the (list of) drafts page (same link as above).

That way, editors can review and reach out (and encourage) hashing out such “bits & pieces” into full ideas. I think we should use the drafts page as a collaborative whiteboard, sticking potential “post it” stickers there, maybe suggesting edits, making annotations, etc. A good idea is a terrible thing to lose!
