View Full Version : Time limit on posting
01-25-2003, 01:27 AM
Is there a time limit for which one has to post a reply? Twice already, and I just started parusing this site, I have been logged off while trying to post a reply. After 10 or 15 minutes of typing and hitting the post reply button it tells me I'm logged off and I know it wasn't me who did it. Kind of discourages me from submiting any thought provoked indepth replies. Any suggestions anyone.

If you run into any time limit problems or posts getting eaten on any forum or with web-based email, it is always best to compose in Notepad. It is very difficult to lose content typed into Notepad. Then, when your message is ready, you can open the window, paste it in, and post quickly. I put the notepad icon, along with the calculator, down in the lower left quick-launch icons. If shielding what you compose from the slings and arrows of outrageous internet misfortunes is important to you, it's really the only way.
If you're on a Mac, you'll have to figure out the equivalent on your own.

Good Idea I'll try that next time I feel long winded
As I mentioned in my other post, if you have the "browse board with cookies" option enabled, I don't think you'll bump into this problem.
Another thing you can do in addition to what Kevin mentioned above is to just copy (eg select all of the text that you wrote and hit "Ctrl-C") into your clipboard -- just in case your session has expired.
