>25th October was the first chat message, then Q&A started on 3rd November :)
real drafts (the ones that get saved with the 'save draft' button) aren't storde in localStorage — they are saved on the server. You should be able to see them on your private profile page at the bottom?
that's a notification thing — once you've replied the notification has already gone out to the other person, so editing out the reply would confuse
hay! just remembered the long edit window and realised my gif-in-chat sin needn't be permanent 🎉
as well though, i got a pop up when edit-cycling [this message](https://topanswers.xyz/transcript?room=1&id=78177#c78177) stating "_you cannot edit a reply to be no longer a reply_" - which i guess makes sense if the cached "reply" state is the thing that's getting stuck - just of note as an interaction i suppose
so yea, looks like the edit sticks, but it [`needs refresh`](https://topanswers.xyz/meta?q=29#a43) to show the "`replying-to`" label
sorry - imgur link for the 2nd repro https://imgur.com/a/Tq3kbJ5 i know people hate gifs in chat 😓
You mean it just doesn't auto-refresh, or the edit fails?
happy to document it in a meta post though if you think it's worth
@Jack if i edit a message to add a "reply to" that i missed, i also need to add a whitespace character or dummy edit to the body in order to get chat to register the edit. it's a pretty minor annoyance so not sure if it's worth a post describing it, but just wanted to put a bug in your ear
some people are not that keen on the idea
and replace it with an expander
because it inteferes with scrolling the whole chat
I've had a plan to get rid of vertical scroll alltogether
I liked the subtle and possibly unwanted allusion to how some jobs can be bad for your health.
