    I remember somebody mentioned that we need to have a way to save drafts for debate arguments and recently I discovered that we already kinda have it. Why kinda? Well, how it works now is that if you create a new debate argument and go to its preview, the text of the argument will be saved, so if you close the tab on the preview and start the process from the beginning, your text will be there when you open the form for the new argument. The gotcha here is that it saves the text only for the specific argument, i.e. the text gets deleted if the argument gets forfeited.

    Oh alrighty, thanks. I know it's a half baked solution but I wanted to share because it's something that we already have and it could be useful in some circumstances.

    Basically, in case you still don't fully believe/understand it, you click 'preview' then don't publish it. It's then saved to your account, not even your browser cache, as far as I am aware.
