Topic: new topics don't end up in drafts

I was creating a topic in one of the streams and switched midway, but unlike half-written messages, I don't see it in the drafts section.

That is definitely the current behavior. I'm not sure if it was a design decision or an oversight. If you have time, you could open an issue about it. Mention that you're coming from the Rust community.

As a workaround, you can type some characters in the message field so that it saves it as a draft. It's not as automatic – you can't just click away without thinking about it – but it works well enough. Three characters is the minimum to save a draft; I usually type "..." when I'm specifically wanting to save only the topic for now.

i think I did type some chars in the message field but it didn't save it (let me try again)

it does work, i guess that's fine (could have been some spurious network issue when it happened yest)
