    Angry Why was I logged off without warning?

    After carefully crafting my first post which took nearly an hour, I was unknowingly logged off and lost everything as far as i know. This is unacceptable behavior.

    Lesson to learn (applicable not just to this forum): Compose your carefully crafted stuff in your own text editor off-line. Then copy pasta here.

    Many forums have time limts for you to do something on them. You can always use the "remember me" button when logging in.

    Do we get some kind of meat with the pasta? (BTW, Composing the message offline then copying and pasting is a good suggestion.)

    Re: Why was I logged off without warning?

    I'm sure I have the "remember me" thing ticked but I didn't know it would save the contents of the editor's text box.

    Some forums have a "save draft" option. Some do it automatically. I don't see the save draft option here. I also don't see the transient "saving" that is visible in forums that do save drafts automatically. So I'm quite impressed to know that the "remember me" thing serves the purpose of saving drafts. (Of course, the privacy advocates will see this as another you-know-what.)
