    Is there any way to declare how long you want to be logged in for (as there is on ProForums)?

    Twice now, while composing a message, when I hit submit I am returned with "you are logged out" while I was typing.

    The first time was my first ever thread/post. So much typing had disappeared! I banged my fist so hard on the desk that I hurt it and had to retype the entire lot. Since then I learned to copy the text before pressing submit, log in again, hunt down the thread again, and paste it in.

    What is the default log-in time? It seems to be about 20 minutes.

    (copies this text before pressing submit.......)

    Don't type for an hour before clicking a button. Click Preview Post now and then and the forum system will know you are still around.

    I get logged out once in a while when I'm writing a long post, but when I log back in, my post will automatically submit for me. Are you sure you had to rewrite the whole thing?

    I guess it depends on the browser... Most browsers should show you all your written text again if you click on the Back button though.
