I presume Steven particularly is following this forum topic - Although most board participants probably won't get timed out when writing replies, it looks to me like log-out time is maybe around 1-hr. If I'm trying to put together a detailed reply (particularly if having to search/google relevant info, I can vacuum up an hour in what seems like no time, and with no log-out popup warning or a popup that will allow one to remain logged in, one can get logged out _without_knowing_ it. Hit the reply button, you're thrown to the login screen, try to hit the browser back button to get back to the reply, and, at best, you go back to an empty flash reply box - written reply LOST, un-retrievable. Unless the plan is to discourage detailed replies, it's unlikely anyone's going to bother to re-write a long post that was lost (I wouldn't, out of frustration). Either - There needs to be a FAQ advisement of what the log-out time is, and the potential consequences of same, or... Log-out time needs to be extended substantially, to more like 2 or 3 hours, (which would still need a FAQ advisory), or... The board needs to be set to recognize that typing in a reply box should count as as a user being active on the board and not trigger a time-out... (I'm guessing not technically possible, or an available option), or... There needs to be a pop-up logout warning, with either the option of something like prompting to not be logged out (ie: "You will be logged off of the BMWCCA website in 15 minutes; click "Here" to continue your session or "There" to log-off immediately"... or something like that), or a popup suggesting what to do to keep from getting logged out. Without any of the above, that will end up as a disincentive for using the boards - might be different if anyone was being paid to try be helpful, but, since we ain't..... losing posts that take some effort when just trying to be helpful to other club members is a big frustration. On another note - it would appear the forum software is set to make bb-code modified text a _smaller_ size than the rest of the posted text, requiring that whatever text is coded be re-sized back up to match the size of the rest of the post text. Final result in a post ends up looking a little odd when trying to emphasize something with bold or italics or color or whatever and have that attempt at emphasis de-emphasized by it automatically being formatted one size smaller than the rest of the post text. For me at least, once logged in, it's showing my name and the "Log Out" option, but every page still is showing the Login button; once logged in, any page of the site one is on should not show the Login button, for as long as a user is logged in. My 2¢ worth, anyway.
