Okay.. I am officially sick of this "idle" logout, or whatever you would like to call it, that myLot has installed. I have read other discussions about this thing, but at least I haven't been able to pinpoint if this is a new "feature" (a stupid one at that) or if it is an error that has come with the new layout of the site. I only know that it is stupid, because you get logged out at the most inconvenient times! Okay, fair enough if you are really idle for like an hour or so, but this has not been the case. I get logged out after not even ten minutes, which is insane. I have been logged out three times so far when I have been writing discussions and responses. There is a huge problem with that. Firstly, because you do not see when you are logged out. I was logged in when I clicked start new discussion and I started writing. Apparently writing is not being active (I guess it is because the site doesn't load) because five minutes later when I clicked on submit, I came to the registration page instead. This means that my discussion is lost. Since I do not have 500 posts I cannot copy and paste, and there is no "save draft" button, which means that there is no way of keeping what you have written, in case you may be logged out when you submit it. This is very stupid, it is like a lottery whether the discussion may have taken so long to write so that you are logged out when you want to submit it, and you cannot even save it for the case that it might be. You can also not load the page while you write, so you have to be "idle" while writing, risking to loose it when you submit. It is a lottery with a hint of "catch 22". Have you realized this, what do you think about it? I really hope the admin reads this!!!

I guess a lot of people noticed that and is affected . I posted in the morning same posts because I noticed it happens from time to time. It is like a screen saver, when you don't work it shut down for protection. I saw a posts the other day, hte husband of a myloter here was reading her posts, maybe mylot though if you are gone from the front of computer, to log out, so nobody see your posts, ha ha !
