Option to turn off autosave draft

Option to turn off autosave draft

Short, concise description of the idea
An option to keep LiveJournal from automatically saving drafts as you update your journal.

Full description of the idea
A checkbox to turn off the autosave draft feature. Not everybody needs it or wants it, and it can be annoying if your way of deciding "nah, I don't need to post this" is simply to go do something else in the browser window.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Eliminates annoying confirmation pop-ups every time you come back after navigating away from the update screen.
  • The comfort of knowing something you decided not to post isn't being saved somewhere out there on the internet.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • May unintentionally lose data from browser crashes but this is an accepted risk in turning the feature off.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • A checkbox on the editinfo page would probably be the most intuitive way to give this option.
