Anti-sign.

I know how the auto-save feature works on Vanilla forums; it's not great. I prefer it to be an option rather than a default. (I have the same crappy connection too, plus my browser crashes. I still rather have the Preview rather than auto-save feature because it's marginally faster for me.)

Nothing stops you from still using the preview?

I don't understand what yo mean by "it's not great". Compared to the state we have now, it's a benefit to everyone no matter how badly it is implemented.

Looks like one needs to insert a _ to quote certain users...

Your really want me to respond to that? Alright.

In Vanilla forums with it enabled, it clutters my profile with half-completed posts while leeching off my data constantly making auto-saves. I cannot disable it and have to enter a sub-profile setting and individually delete each auto-save. Or let them amass and stay in my notifications tab.

I'm not shooting the idea down completely; if it was optional (akin to the Preview function) I would be all for it. But I've seen poor implementation and I dislike poor implementation. (I have not seen a modification that turns auto-save "off". And I imagine having the fragments clutters up the servers for the 20~50k users still using GameFAQs forums.)

Look at their user page, it's because they have a _ in their name
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.
