Doc Ok (New Admin) 8/27/2007 12:30 PM EST : I hate your blogging system

I just spent about 2 hours typing a blog, only to click save and see my entire [bleep]ing essay of a blog deleted, and a little message stating that I'm not logged in.  This is [bull waste].  Get a [bleep]ing backup system to give me an option to log in before my post gets deleted.

Edit:  When I started typing this blog I was definately logged in, whatever timer you have that logs me out screwed me over.

See, there's this little program called Notepad.  Anything that could be lost during uploads really should be typed up there first, then if everything goes haywire, you simply have to repost it instead of coming into the forum and acting like a jerk.

You're right.  We haven't had this come up before, but with the web garden + web farm model everything's running under now, it'll probably happen a lot more.

Because of that, expect a code push tonight that will extend the default session time period, as well as provide a way for you to retrieve the contents of your blog post (probably via copying it, like the forums do), when you're logged out by that time limit.

Very sorry for the wasted time.  I, too have made it a habit to type up everything in either Notepad or, more often, copy everything I've typed into a web form to the clipboard before submitting the form.  But we shouldn't have to do it.

Again, very sorry, expect a fix with tonight's code push!
Aaron Lewis,
