I often find it very annoying that the community site logs me out while I am writing lengthy posts.
Often there is a good bit of work which gets lost each time this happens, …
…and I ask myself if we can't improve the way session timeout works.
The thing is, that the user is not idle, they are typing way, and the auto-save is working in the background saving your work.
Suddenly the session timeout kicks in, boots the session, and … woah … you're out!
Isn't it possible to get the auto-save to talk to the session and say "the user is active, don't go booting him please!"
It doesn't make sense to penalise hard workers!
Please change the session to be more inteligent!
