I am currently writing a relatively big answer, so I am making use of drafts to work on it a bit everyday as I don't have much time.

I understand that drafts will be deleted after 7 days. What I don't understand is, will those 7 days start from the time I initially started to write the answer or will they reset every time I edit the draft?

    $\begingroup$ ^^ I try not to rely too much on the draft system. I typically copy unfinished answers to a text file to save them for later, then paste them back to continue working on them. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yep, sounds like your are asking for lost work. Relying on a draft system to safegard your work seems feeble at best and is bound to lead to sorrow. Use the editor but save it locally. $\endgroup$ Dec 2 '17 at 23:54
  • $\begingroup$ I took your advice and wrote everything locally instead. Other wise I would have been taking a risk with a 2000 word answer: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/94991/… $\endgroup$
