Mad with python forum

Postby AEA » Sat Sep 21, 2013 12:59 pm

I replied to one of my threads spent a good 35 mins writing a big reply. Pressed post, it told me I needed to resign in and navigated me back to a BLANK POST! Surly a website created for python programmers can be programmed to remember the post? Or to not sign people out every 5 minutes. Wasted so much time.

The forum itself is not programmed by the users of the forum, its just a general use forum.
When i log in i ensure that 'Log me on automatically each visit' is ticked and i've never had any problem with being logged out during a post.
When doing something lengthy its usually a good idea to create it locally first and then copy and paste it so your not relying on the internet to behave itself.

Completely agree I will be doing that in the future, I just thought It represented the forum badly. Sorry for the rant, just wanted to bring it to the attention of the moderators. :oops:

This forum is PhpBB. It is not written by any one of us. Consider it lesson learned. As we have done it at one point or another at any forum.

I cant remmeber what forum that happened to me on, but since then i make sure on a long post i can re-aquire my post by either A) creating it locally then posting it or B) saving it as a draft. I prefer the first as i know for a fact that i can get it back again. I spend sometimes days with an open post up for a tutorial. There is no way i am going to lose that post by accidently doing logging off or something.

I dont mean you have to start it locally. There are times where i start a long post here, and it as it gets where i put a lot of time into it, I cut/paste it over locally and work there and paste it back.

Lesson is definitely learnt, please ignore my first post as nothing but a moment of frustrated rage. :)

I use Lazarus because of exactly that problem happening on various websites (and other similar issues).

I have the exact same problem, getting logged out way to soon, but only if I come to the forum via the internet connection at work. I assume, there is some sort of internet-filter in place, kicking me out after ~30min, so I have to relog into the forum. I do not see this effect via any other internet connection. Maybe it's the same for you there.

i do not have this problem. I could log in and come back 24 hours later and still be logged in. Which it doesnt matter as its my home computer and no one but me uses it.
