Whenever I make long posts this forum always times me out and I have to log back in and re-type everything all over again can we do something about this issue.

copy it before you submit.. then if it does that, paste it into a new one... Use the buffer as your safeguard.

Another option is to have the forum open in another tab, and refresh that before you post.

Or possibly learn to type faster ;)

[Addendum -Session timeout is 2 hrs, so not going to increase that any further]

I’ve done your first suggestion many times which is why I didn’t bother suggesting until now because it didn’t take me back to do it again like it usually does so I was rather perturbed about it. I will try that modified suggestion though that could work for the better.

:shock: 2 hours 🤔 talk about losing track of time I may have to find a tutor or something of the like to start typing faster.

Just put it in a word doc and copy it over when you're done

Yup, I was surprised.. I looked at it, expecting it to be 10-20 mins or so.. then to see 2 hours.. :)

I have been caught myself by the same thing before, hence my two suggestions as those are the ones I find work best for me..
It is way beyond annoying to lose a lengthy (not just words but time) post, oftentimes it is very hard to recompose it the same way the second time.

Which is why I was pissed and brought this up because, I was using a different browser and when I try to back track to get my post it wouldn’t let me! :evil: But oh well I’ll just make adjustments when necessary.

Indeed, the good part is, once you make the adjustments you are covered on any other similar sites/forums, not just this one :)
