getting logged off mid-reply/message/posting

Postby Seeker » Aug 12th, '09, 00:10

I'm very frustrated. I use a macbook, with latest OS.
Ever since the TeaChat tweek/update/whatever, I've noticed that if I take several minutes to write a response or post a reply or something, I click on submit and then am asked to re-enter my login and password. (I say re-enter because every time I've already logged in; this last time this happened just after I logged in). So I re-login and then everything I've written is gone - the response field is blank. Ahhhhghghghgh!!! So very frustrating.

Edit - addition - Oh and on this last time, I was responding to Matt of Moss Beach Ceramics about a yunomi question - so proof of my login was that I had received his message and was responding to it. :evil:

Ooooh, that sux. :evil:

There is nothing worse than losing a post. Hopefully Ilya will be able to remedy that problem.

If you're intending to write a long-ish post, it's usually worth writing it in a text editor and copy/pasting it into the message window. It's a bit of a pain, but avoids timeouts and other random browser issues.

There are Firefox plugins (if you use Firefox) that allow you to click on a button on the input window and have a text editor automatically pop up. Here's one: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4125

I did have a quick look for an equivalent for Safari. I found one called Saft that seems to do this, as well as a huge number of other things, but it's shareware and costs $12.

... or at least copy it before hitting submit ... that way you can just paste it if need be.

Thanks chip!
wow - just posted this reply, and it didn't show up.
But two other new ones as I replied.
So here' what I wrote.
Interestingly, I just logged in (says seeker at top) read your mssg (chip) then when I went to reply, asked to log in again. Hmmm.
I've made no alterations in system config on this end (computer, internet connection, etc).
Also - I think I will start copying all my stuff before submitting.
Then I can just paste if needed.
Just need to remember.
Cheers!

... it is hard enough for me to remember to do the simple solution, :oops: can't tell you how many times I forgot to copy and lost a post or PM. But my primal scream can be heard in at least 3 states when it happens.
