The system logged you out during editing :)

Ctl-A + Ctrl-C

Actually - it didn't. When I moved to a different part of the site I was still logged on. When I went to check - the option was to log off. So I logged off of the system. Logged back on to the system and went to change my message. Ctrl-V. (I had copied it)

Then I still got the same error. I don't believe the system would look me off in less than a minute. I'll try editing this morning and see if it works.


If you have the password saved with your browser you may be logged on autamatically just after this error!


OK - it worked today so I'm marking this answered.


No, I see this error often, and am definitely logged in as I can go to other parts of the site. Even tried logging out and in and still persists.

I suspect it may have something to do with the content. It only ever happened to me when I had long and/or complex responses that I wanted to edit. I might write stuff, maybe with a block of code or a screenshot. Usually clicking submit triggers the memory of where I've seen something before :-) So I go find the reference and try to add it or some further explanation.

When I get the error one workaround is to just copy-paste-post as a new response and delete the previous one. But that doesn't work if there's an image, so my workaround there is to just say stuff that and move on.
