excessively short timeout period is killing me

I'm not certain of the length of the "inactivity timeout" in these forums, but it is certainly too short for an old man like me.

Today I spent maybe 15 minutes composing a reply in a thread. When I clicked Reply, I was asked to login again, so I did. Then, nothing but a blank screen here:

If I'm alert, I will remember to copy my reply so I can paste it back in after the re-login. Today I wasn't alert, so now I have to start composing my reply all over again. Yes, I know that I can hit Preview every 5 or 10 minutes to reset the countdown timer, but that also requires awareness on my part.

My browser is the latest Chrome, but I've had the same thing happen in Firefox.

  1. What harm would there be in extending the inactivity period to 20 or 30 minutes?
  2. Is there a bug in the forum software that causes the blank screen?
  3. Other than copy/paste, is there anything I can do to recover after that happens? The back button is ineffective.
  4. Why can't you drop a cookie on my PC so I can stay logged in forever, like Amazon does?

It may sound like I'm bitching, but really I'm just looking for a better solution.
