    Recently I logged in and attempted to post something, but when I clicked on Submit New Thread, I couldn't because I was instructed to log in. When I logged in again, I found I had lost my post. What amount of time is available for a new post, how can I avoid the problem in the future?

    I'm not sure exactly what happened there. The system is set to log a user out after 15 minutes of inactivity, but if you were actually working on a post it should not do that. I'll do some research. If this happens again in the meantime, you should be able to recover your post as follows: *Don't* log back in using the fill-in blocks at the top of the screen. Instead, scroll down to the middle of the screen when you get the "you need to log back in" message, and you'll see another, larger set of log-in blocks. If you use them, the system should take you back to your post-in-progress.

    Again, sorry about the problem, and I'll see if I can dig up some more information about this.
