View Full Version : minutes to type a response to a post?

What is the time limit that you have to respond to a post. The reason why I am asking is I tried to make it a little more explicit and understandable to the person

There is no time limit. You can post any time.

I think he meant the time limit between consecutive posts, some forums limit it to 30 seconds or a minute between them to prevent spam.

Maybe he means that the edit button disappears after a while, so you can't go back to editing your posts after some time? I don't know what the time limit is on that, looks like a few hours.

I was already logged in and responding to a post, but when I hit the quick reply button I could not post and was not logged in

Generally speaking, you should only get logged out when the cookie with your user id times out - and looking at mine, that's well into 2009.
It sounds like it might be a browser oddity - which one are you using?

maybe he hasn't used the "Remember me" option when logged in (not sure whether this could be related in this issue)?

I use the epiphany browser and I don't have the remember me selected.
I havent checked the cookies but the cookies are cleared when I log out.
It was strange when it happened but lots of things happen when I am enjoying my favorite beverage :)
