    I was in the middle of writing a long post and I was asked to log in again. I followed the instructions and when I was logged in again my post was gone. This isn't the first time this has happened to me. Am I doing something wrong or is it on your end? I say this because when I log back in I notice the new post page is totally reshuffled.

    I believe you will be logged out after 30 minutes of inactivity. So if it takes you longer than 30 minutes to type up your post, when you hit the "submit" button, it will ask you to re-log in.
    What you can do to prevent this from happening to you is, if you know you are going to type a long post, type it in word or notepad, and save it, so that way you don't lose it.

    only twice? that happens to me all the time, usually it tells me 'server busy, please try again later'. My post gets lost, and I need to re-type the post later when I can get back onto the site.
