Does Experts-Exchange have a "Draft Feature" similar to email so you can pause a question waiting for further information for more detail of an issue?

Can you start a draft of a question in EE and pause it for a few days while waiting for further information on the problem. I was just curious as it might be a nice add on feature which I do not see at the moment. Like an email draft?
My point is that might come in handy for more complicated questions. I know I could just start a doc somewhere but sometimes keeping your eggs all in the same basket has its benefits. Since I start up a dozen docs a day if not 2 dozen.
Just a thought?

Not that I'm aware of but it does sound like a useful feature.

No, not for questions. I get miffed when I lose my question when EE goes off the air for a bit.

There is a draft Article Feature.

Put in a Feature Request for this.

Agree, could be useful under certain circumstances, and there should be a way from your user profile to see all drafts you have saved, and relate them to their questions, etc.  Submit a feature request via:

I was thinking that too. Just a place holder to keep going back to as you build the question. Then when ready push it to the forum. I know notepad can be a well placed notation. However, EE could do this...Send a gentle ping now and again to remind the user of the draft question.
So if I have half a question today and want to keep it fresh on my mind. The system could ping the user back to say "do you have the rest of your question ready" or " you have an open and started but not published question on EE....?"  I reported it. Thanks for the link.
