Technical Problems

edited January 2010 in

I've had a technical problem. This has happened quite a few times. When I post sometimes, during my typing, it logs me out so when I try to post it says oculd you please log in and then I lose EVERYTHING and that's a bit annoying when I lose a really long post that took me ages, (but now I look at it as an opportunity to practice patience).

Can it be fixed?

    Yes, I'm using my own computer, well the family's computer. It only happens on this site though, not in any other forum I've been on.

    Hopefully the site owners will see this. They may be able to see more of what's going on, depending on what analytics they collect on site visits.

    Yes, I noticed it happening yesterday. I always tend to 'copy' any longer posts before sending them. Sometimes the 'Back' button on the browser enables you to return to what you wrote - and 'copy' it before trying to send it again.
