    Default Do the forums logout anyone else mid-post?

    Lately, while in the middle of typing up a lengthy post (or when I pause any activity), I get logged out. I haven't seen anything here in Settings that would address it. I don't think it's Firefox, since this is the only site where this happens.

    I have not had any such issues.
    I recommend clearing your cookie cache and seeing what happens after you log back in.

    It's happened to me quite a bit, actually. Doesn't matter what browser I use. I try to get around it when writing a lengthy post by clicking the preview button every now and then.

    I don't know if this is similar but I have had it where I am posting and suddenly everything freezes up. I can't even CTL-ALT-DEL to get to the Task Mgr or CTL /Break to get out of it. And it is only on this site but very random.

    I've had it happen a few times.

    I do that regularly.

    Since I posted this thread, I haven't seen the issue recur. But I haven't been posting much, either. I'll continue to keep an eye on it.

    Thank you, Matt. Will do. I'd like to encourage those who've posted here to do the same.

    What I used to get is the just logging out because I've been 'idle' too long on my machine. I fixed that by clicked the "keep me logged in" button when I logged in.

    So far since the MB has been "streamlined" (not sure what to call it), I've not had any posting issues.

    Server upgrade would be the best term, I think.
    The CBR techies (bless their cotton socks) moved the hosting of the forums to a much faster machine.

    Considering all of the activity, that was probably the best solution

    I had tried that a while back to no effect. It might have been a browser issue.
