How often are you being logged out? If it's often, it may be due to your browser not having cookies enabled for abovetopsecret.com. Without cookies,
the software must repeatedly verify who you are, which is a major hassle.
The procedure for enabling cookies will depend on your browser (and, in some cases, add-ons), but unless you're on a public or nonsecure computer
(such as in a library or Internet cafe), enabling them makes posting a lot easier. I only have to log back in about once a month or so from my home
computer, for example.
As for losing posts, I know the pain, believe me. There are easy ways to avoid losing posts, however, such as hitting CTRL-A and CTRL-C to save a copy
of the edit window's contents to your computer's clipboard before previewing or submitting a post (CTRL-V will paste it back). I do that, and
use a separate text editor, which also allows me to use macros, spellchecker and other niceties.
It's a little extra work up front, but can save a lot of grief if something goes wrong, and I use a separate editor on all the discussion boards I
frequent for that very reason.
Whatever the case, we definitely want you to be able to post without unnecessary pain, so please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
