There is no general website discussion, so I am posting here.

After writing a post and clicking [Submit] I noticed I was logged out.
This without warning and without my post being saved as a draft.

Please extend the logout time to, let's say, 1-2 hours.

I know that this may happen with some boards: log out users without notice.
For that reason, often I save the text to clipboard before submitting.
Regretfully I didn't do that in this case, so I have to start from scratch.

I guess they could do that if it's not set like that.
I use 'Log me on automatically each visit' and stay logged in so have no issues.

Thank you for the tip! Have checked that option as well now.
Let's see.
