Ah, I thought you were saying it hides it automatically. So what I understand is I can put a placeholder, then you hide it while I set it up? Or can I just post the entire thing and say it's ready to go?
There is no hiding feature like that for you. Once you submit it and put a do not post yet in either title or body, one of us have to approve it. then once we do so you can work on it as you please. if a nub comes in posts in it anyways, we will delete the post.
as an alternative, you can always work out a draft in an old post of yours and edit
Let me clarify here. If I put "do not post yet" in the title or post body, it automatically hides the post from everyone except for me and staff? I'm watching a hockey game now, but I'll be back active on Pokémon after the game (around 9:15 or so if there's no overtime). If you're around then, we can work through a quick approval on it.
I finally started cataloguing all the Lv.1 Pokémon in my PC (just of those alone I have three full boxes, possibly more). I started typing everything in Notepad, but discovered that I can't save the file there with the unicode characters (that is, ♂ and ♀) without losing those characters.
So, my question is this: do we have the ability to start and work on the thread for a while BEFORE it goes live? Or does it have to be approved first, thus giving us temporary permission to post it? I have more than 90 Pokémon and intend to keep a rotating inventory of other trades, and many will become freebies in any case as they are babies I just bred for Pokédex completion (plus requests that never got picked up, they're also being offered). I figure it'll be easier for me to keep track of things if I have my place to jot down pending trades, as well.
