Do forum sessions have a timer now?

I had typed a goddam essay in the positional magic feedback thread in "quick reply" mode, then I switched to the full editor to check the formatting, and instead it took me back to the login screen. And so my post was gone, like tears in the rain.
This took a little less than an hour, I reckon. This is not how this board used to work, is it? Why change it to this (if it was indeed changed)? What the hell is the point of session timeouts in a freakin forum board anyway?

I'm pretty sure no-one has touched the forum code in well over a decade...

If it was a good essay (criticism I haven't thought of myself, supportive of notions i've already put forth, not whining about the changes), I think you should try posting a brief outline of it, quickly hitting its main points. Otherwise, wow, that sucks bro. (Feel free to reach out over PMs if you're unsure whether your lost poast was good.)
