Why oh why do I get logged out when I am typing a long reply. Its happened 3 times now and I'm starting to lose the will to live. I know I'm not a very fast typer. Help, can't risk typing anymore- I might be logged out!

Also go back to the post and check where you were typing sometimes it saves it. A little box will appear in the lower left hand corner saying restore auto-saved content.
click on that and continue away.

Dude! I've been on the forum all this time and didn't know about this feature you just mentioned.

It even works if you shut down your PC I forgot to save a post and when I went back the next day it was not there so I went to type it over and all I did was move the cursor over the blank area and this little box appeared that said restore saved content I clicked it and bam it was there. I don't know if you have to set a setting but if you see saved in the right hand corner normally after I spell check it works.

I have "remember me" checked and it auto logs me in everytime I come to the site.
When I'm typing a reply I see it autosave every couple of minutes.
I have not been logged out as long as I am on the site, even if I do nothing for a long time.

Yep, as the others have said, try the auto save. Otherwise, if you're running Firefox there's a cool little addon called "Lazarus", which will save your text, just right click on the message box an select the "Recover Text" menu.

The thing that usually gets me is when I know I replied to a post (mostly on my phone) and it shows on my screen. But i'll go back to the thread a bit later and nothing even shows up that I said. Now I wait about 5 minutes to hopefully make sure it posts, but i'm sure it has cost me roughly 75-100 posts over the last 11 months.
