  1. HELP! ! ! !
    I tend to take several minutes to compose a post; but I am being 'kicked off' before I can get it done and submitted.. Do you have automatic 'kick-out' set for only a few minutes or what might be my problem?

    Dang! Thought she was going down! Started searching for a lifevest and dogging down watertight doors! Whewwww! [​IMG][​IMG]
    Can't say I've ever experienced this. Something for a moderator or Jeff to address.
  3. Hey, Mike;
    ROTF-LOL.... Thanks for the chuckle.

    Sounds like a session variable within the forum software is bumping you out. Do you have cookies enabled on your computer?

    (yeah, I am a programmer)
  5. Yes, AJ; I think (pretty sure) that I have cookies enabled. My OS is Windows XP; maybe you could give me some hints to check for absolutely sure. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have experienced this problem if typing up a long post, at my whopping 5 words per min [​IMG][​IMG]

    Go to Tools >> Internet Options and then the Privacy tab. I am set at Medium and have never had a problem here. What is your browser version? I am running IE 7 at home. IE 6 at work and have not had any problems.

    Do any of the moderators know how long the session variables are set for? I believe that 20 minutes is the default.

    I have that problem sometimes and Someone (Dutch I think ) said to check the remember me thing when you sign in and it doesn't happen as much. Stil happens when I search for stuff though.
