"Remember me", post while you get logged out?
 
This is getting a bit annoying :) I use LQ in different places, different PCs and don't like to check the "Remember me" box when I log in. Then at some point I start writing to a thread; when I get finished (I don't think it takes that long, or am I getting old?) and press the button to submit my text, I get a page telling me I've been logged out. Then I type my login information, log in - and LQ tells me there's an error with the thread I tried writing to! So text is gone, ideas gone, I need to go back, start writing all over and in the end copy the text, click to send it, log in again, go back, paste, ...

You got the point?

This happens at another forum that my wife goes to, and it uses Vbulletin as well, and it happens to her regularly.

Two solutions
* Open a second window / Tab while logged in.
* Type all long posts into wordpad, word, writer, whatever and copy & paste into your reply.

This situation will be improved in a future code upgrade, but in the interim I'd suggest you either check the remember me box or use one of the workarounds.
