Sometimes, Drupal forms are way too complex, even for those of us who use Drupal day in and day out. It'd be great if Drupal could just get out of our way and let us get the basic form submitted without all of the options, widgets, and do-dads.
This module changes the node workflow such that for new nodes, only required fields are shown. After the node is saved, the user is redirected to the edit form where they can fill in more details if they wish, or continue on with more important things. A Brütally Basic API is provided to allow developers to apply this pattern to other forms.
