Hi Team, me again,

Is there a time limit for replying to a thread once you have opened the message box for replies ?

If so, what is it ?

If not, then I think that the PSO Team should ask the PS Support to look into a small problem that I have had.

That is....on a number of occasions I have attempted to reply to a thread, or indeed open a new topic, and spent over twenty minutes, composing, typing and editing.
When I come to submit my reply or new thread I get an error message saying that my submission could not be made as something was missing.

This is not much of a problem if I know that there is a time limit, as I can cut and paste from a word document if needed.

Look forward to hearing from someone.

Hi Bill,

No there is no limit to the time you take to complete a post. I believe that you may be getting logged out while you're writing. Do you need to log in again after this happens? I get logged out quite often and when I try to post, I will get a V-bulletin message. If you are writing a long reply, it may be better to use Word or whatever and paste to the forum. That way you won't lose your reply.

Hope this helps.

Could be a browser issue perhaps?
I have had bad experiences with forums timing out when i submit and it wipes my post.. so to that end I either
a) constantly CNTRL+A then CNTRL + C to keep a copy of my post on the clipboard
b) I write my post in a notepad and transfer it once done

Good luck

Twenty minutes isn't uncommon for a session time-out on a Web Server. Previewing the post occasionally should ensure nothing times out.

Thanks for the responses, I think that in future if I am going to make an in depth reply, or know that I will be a while composing one, I will use a word processor and copy and paste.

This should solve my problem as I hate to see that error message and have to rewrite, as I almost always cannot remember my exact wording and the rewrite doesn't seem quite as good.

Thanks again.
