Anybody else find if they type a post for more than a few minutes esp a really long one that they 'loose' it in a subsequent request to retype user name/password.....VERY annoying!Just wrote and 'lost' a long post on first impressions of McCrich chip ...

yeah, had that happen before. so i always take a copy of any long posts i do in case it goes wrong. if you use the "keep me logged in" option, it doesnt normally happen though

Forum logs you out automatically if you are inactive for 15 minutes, chances when writing a thread you are seen as inactive so you were logged out

When you log in, there should be a 'keep me logged in' box to tick as well. Not sure if this appears on the main screen or if you have to go to the log-in screen, I don't do it enough to remember!

It is on the top right of the main screen, next to the log-in boxes - a little check-box that needs ticking.

I too remain logged in permanently.

You not got this top right then, before you log in:

I never log out when I come off the forum, so when I next come onto the machine, it remembers me.
