Angry Airstream Labyrinth / Time limit on Post Composition ??

Is there a time limit to complete the composition of a post?

I was taking my sweet time just now, after having copied a long quote, and shuffling books to help in my posting and when I looked back up at screen it was wiped cleaner than Hillary's memory!

Sorta takes the want-to outa goin thru the motions.
I love this place but damnd if I don't sometime think it's a little too cute by half.
Sometimes I think it oughta be called the Airstream Labyrinth!

This sorta dovetails in with Uwe's posting regarding Review Woes.
Whazzup??

There are no timeout limits on having the Post/Reply form open that I am aware of. I have done the same as you mention with out any problems. Not saying it can't happen. Just has not happended to me. I always seem to be in the middle of a post and get called away and return to finish it. Sometimes overnite.

When we had the SpellCheck plugin installed, it caused all kinds of problems. Hence it was removed.

I think something else is occuring right now and I have emailed the webmaster.

Are you on a dialup or broadband (cable/DSL) connection?

The tiumeout you got was most likely the standard "session timeout" caused by the server. Most servers are configured with either a 10 or 15 minute timeout - its both a bandwidth/user as well as security feature that frees up the servers resources. For long writes the best thing to do is do a copy of the text - hit refresh - select yes when prompted for retry and then paste things back in...

Something's up, still

Hex,
I have not experienced the timeout, but I have had other strange things happen, like hitting the submit button, but never finding the reply in the thread I was in, or getting an e-mail for a subscribed thread, but there is no new reply when I click the link. I am going to write this off to my inability to deal with computers for now. Maybe that's what's up.
I am appreciative, nevertheless, of having this site work as well as it does.

When this occurs, click on the "Refresh" icon at the top of your browser page to reload the page. Pages are cached to allow faster browsing, and sometimes you get the cached version rather thean the current version.

This is not limited to this forum, it is a browser issue.

Thanks, John.
i will try it next time this happens.
I figured out what happened one of the times.
It's embarrassing, though. It was one of your threads, and it had 2 pages, but I did not realize it and kept looking at the bottom of the first page...........ouch! Someone should take these computers away from me!
