Where are my draft threads?

Wrote up a draft for a thread, but cannot find it anywhere. I've spent the past 5 minutes looking for it...

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Found it! Thanks!

Is there a way to make that more intuitive by including it in the profile section? I don't think most people will naturally think to find the "load draft" button after clicking on "post a new thread"

It also means the only way people can look for drafts is to scroll to that particular forum where they drafted it. For example, I don't see the "load draft" button when I scroll to the arts and photography forum.

The drafts system as a whole is not great and leaves a lot to be desired. We didn't have this feature on our last forum software (vBulletin) but it was a core feature in PHPBB (our current forum software). We decided to keep it so that anyone who wanted to us it could, but we didn't spend any time to improve it. Ideally there would be some page to manage them in your profile/settings area. Right now you can't even delete drafts.

I have a ticket open to look into improving drafts, but priority wise it's not very high so I can't give an estimate on when it might be looked at.
