But that's what the draft is for in the first place..
Whenever I lose work that I've written I just go to the public version of my guide and copy it back.

Unless you lost work in the process of publishing, in which case you're screwed. It's rare now that we have the revision system and the asynchronous save but people still manage it :)

Oh well. As long as there are no cons to it, like slower loading and bigger server load (with the increased space and what not).

"I also am Otherkin. Whenever autumn rolls around I can feel my kin-type slowly taking over my body. You must know, I identify as pumpkin. I can control it pretty good most of the time, but when September ends, I just cant hold it in anymore. Whenever Im outside I see my brothers and sisters being chopped into soup, coffee, donuts, cake, drinks, bread - ppl even cut human faces into their skin, making a mockery out of their noble appearance. When I see things like that I cant control my pumpkin urges anymore. My natural instincts kick in. I then sit down motionless, while getting bright orange." - Morgana L

@Searz:

I have a draft called "Prototype" which I have standard formats of my chapters placed in.

For example: My Runes:

Quoted:


[ icon=Greater Mark of size=32] Marks,

[ icon=Greater Seal of size=32] Seals,

[ icon=Greater Glyph of size=32] Glyphs,

[ icon=Greater Quintessence of size=32] Quintessences,


I typically go to this draft, and copy/paste it into another guide I'm working on.
It saves time.
Typing all that out is time consuming after doing it 4~10 times.

If I could just copy my "Prototype" into a second draft, I'd be able to save so much more time with all the clicking and page loading.

There's also the horrible moment when I accidently press "Delete Chapter" after having ton a lot of work.
Yes, it has happened before... Not fun. =_=

But you've been talking about being able to have more than one draft for the same guide. That doesn't help with your problem at all..

@Searz:

Copying combined with the already existing Save feature means Writers could always go back to certain copies to work with.
Or have a specific format already preset, like my "Prototype", to start with to save on superficial time.

It's like how, at a store, machines are already set to print Receipts. You wouldn't have to type it out by hand.


If you don't see how this would make guide-writing easier, I don't see how I can make it easier.

Just being able to copy a build and make the copy a different build would solve the problem.

I'm sorry, I think one of us missed something.

What's my problem?

Because I'm still just supporting the addition of a Copy Guide/Draft feature.
