Saving post as draft

When sending personal messages you have the option of saving your message as a draft.
Why isn't there the same option when makings threads or responding to one?

no idea - if i've spent a long time typing something and I get called away - I'll usually highlight the test and copy it into memory or paste it into a notepad.

But you'd have to ask the people who wrote the forum software why there is no draft option.

Well, I find it quite nice and handy to save posts as drafts.
I didn't know this website was based of custom software though. So yeah, there's my explanation.

not custom software - just YABB (yet another bulletin board).

It's probably a space saving thing - also most people don't write really long posts, so a draft option generally not needed.
