wallwalker: A raptor-like alien with mandibles and shiny skin wearing a top hat and monocle. (BRITISH!)
As I've said elsewhere, the one big thing that I wish DW had was a system to schedule posts for a later date.

One of the main reasons I'm not more active here is because I tend to either be on or off when it comes to writing and creating posts. I either go for days with no real inspiration, or I write a bunch of posts at the same day and then never post them. Or I do post them and flood people's lists, and they don't like the spam and stop reading. (This happened shortly after I started archiving a bunch of my stories on [community profile] personalapocalypse - I lost a follower almost immediately after I started posting them, and now I'm not sure whether or not I should even keep trying to do it, because that makes it obvious that it annoys people, and I don't want to do that any further. But if I don't get them all done quickly, I tend not to get back to them for days afterwards; I'm pretty busy right now.)

The point is that I want to be able to write a post, save it, and set it up to post at a later time - preferably an automatic process, in case I'm too busy to post on a particular day. Five posts spread out over five days works far better for me than one day with five posts and four days with nothing. This was apparently a feature that was being discussed some time ago, but I can't find any comment about it now. I imagine it had to be deferred for more immediate problems.

Which brings me to my point. The next-best thing would be for me to find a client that would let me write posts, save them, and then post them with the click of a button later. It wouldn't be perfect, but it would be a lot quicker than the other option (saving them in a text file to copy and paste later.) So if you're reading this and use (or have used) a client to post to DW, please tell me and let me know if it had this sort of feature, and how well it worked. Or if you know of a place to ask about this stuff, let me know; I've looked over most of the official DW comms already, and did a quick web search. Both came up empty.

Thanks in advance! (Note: I'm on Windows 7 at the moment.)
