Slow input to comment box on Dave's mega thread
It's possible feature not a bug, but entering replies on Dave's mega thread is now impossibly slow (unless I write it in a separate text editor and paste it in).

I've also got about a yard of useless draft replies - could that be the problem?

If so, is there a way to delete them?

(Entering text on this thread and others is fine).

Sounds like a bug to me!

I've been wondering if there is point at which the size of a thread starts to cause problems in Elkarte, similar to vbulletin.

I have a feeling it could be the number of drafts, though, and not the number of posts in the thread.

If you go to your profile, there's an option to "show drafts" in the menu under "Profile Info".  You can delete drafts from that page (oh geez I already have 11 pages of drafts...).

You can see the drafts associated with a particular thread  when you're using the full reply box instead of quick reply, but you don't have an option to delete those drafts from within the reply area.

Thanks, Raven!

I'd had a poke around the profile pages but had failed to find that one.

Seems to have done the trick - thanks!

Must have made some space on the database too!

I've poked around in the board configuration.  It was set up to never delete old drafts.  I've changed that to deleting them after a month.  I  imagine that's an absurdly long time to keep drafts around, but baby steps.

Probably a good length of time. This board isn't ​super high traffic.

I'd just set them to auto-delete as soon as they're used in a post. I thought that's what everyone did.

I didn't see that as an option.

Nor me.  It seemed to be auto save or nothing.  Screenshot?

Meh. Silly buggers should have made it an option.
