I've been sitting on this one for a while, and it's probably time to throw it out there. Basically, I feel like drafts should be used more often. Now, what I'm proposing here is a guideline, not a policy, the proposal template just doesn't allow for that. I would like to encourage use of drafts by making a guideline that explains the process, and in particular, makes it clear that drafting in the userspace is a valid excuse to essentially break probation policy, as long as it is clear that the article is intended to be added to the mainspace. What I have already written likely still requires some polish, but I would like some opinions on what to do about this, including the usefulness of this.
- Support but I think this would do better as just a help article. The only "rule" being put forth here really is that "you won't be probated because you edited drafts in the userspace" and that can be put into SW:PROB and SW:SWSS just fine. 13:28, 12 January 2019 (EST)
- Support. I didn't even know drafts were a thing here. I like your article because it makes it clear what they are for and that they can be edited pressure-free, since editing them won't risk you probation. Anthony1996 (talk) 21:13, 22 February 2019 (EST)
- Support Seems all good to me, though we should probably emphasize the ability to edit draft pages freely during times when the wiki is in red status. Pokebub (talk) 21:19, 22 February 2019 (EST)
- Support. No reason to not implement this as far as I'm aware. F0rZ3r0F0r (talk) 23:49, 4 March 2019 (EST)
- I myself have used the draft "feature" before, but I find it annoying that every time I have to move it into the proper wikispace, I have to tag the redirect that gets left behind for deletion. If there's a way to work around this (and not being an admin), then I'll support. SugarCookie 420 21:23, 22 February 2019 (EST)
