deltachat just lost my draft.
is there any way to recover it?
i would bet not. at least today.
but this could and should be preventable if it would offer a few features (please be kind with my choice of words. i actually do ponder a lot about them):
- advanced option: check for “fuck encryption”. because not everyone needs it (althgough it was probably not the reason it lost my draft, it could have been)
- “also, fuck privacy and just log everything”. this could have already helped to prevent such a loss, if the log includes undo’s and delete itself after a certain size (say 5mb, althgough i would opt for 20mb).
- save drafts in the server, in another dedicated folder for chat. do it every few minutes, when any draft is being written.
- create a delta chat keyboard for android which can use delta chat for preventing more data loss anywhere!
- pick a better name. instead of “delta chat”, just come up with something uniquely new and keep the old as “formerly delta chat” and for links.
- don’t neglect your loved ones for developing all this.
just a few random ideas i would love to discuss in a chat (specially over voice), rather than in a forum… but not matrix, please. make it either within delta chat or telegram!
