I have decided to relax the real names policy a little. If you do not wish to use your real name then you may use a trade name that obviously identifies you. Examples of an obviously identifiable trade name would be Yanone, KLTF, or Chank. Please do not use the name of your business if your business is not obviously the business of one person. An example of a name that does not obviously identify one person is “Dunwich Type Founders”.
James, this is a slippery slope--a bad idea.
@John I think its too much beaurocracy
When a draft is saved (automatically or manually), the changes are written to the server. But it requires reloading the same page on other devices in order to see the changes in the draft on those devices.
If I'm working on a draft on device A, and I open the same page on device B, it loads the current draft, and it will appear the same in both places. I can continue to make changes on device A. Nothing is happening on device B, but it does an automatic save once a minute. If I then reload the page on device A, and device B has done an autosave more recently than device A, it will load the old draft, which is still current on device B.
This is all also true if the page is open on multiple windows or tabs in the same browser on the same machine or in different browsers on the same machine.
It's also not really a problem unless you reload the page while a draft of the same page is open elsewhere.
Bottom line: If you're writing a post, best not open the same page in more than one place.
So for example:
Ermin Međedović - LetterMin
John Hudson – Tiro Typeworks
Scott-Martin Kosofsky - Guy O’Teen™
This doesn't directly address whether you need a Chank Exception (which seems fine to me). Just a general idea.
The status quo is fine for us “insiders” who know all the others within in our little TypeDrawers clique. I just wonder if something like this might be helpful to everybody else.
