Must login each time I post something

Each time I post something, I must login again.  This is not friendly as I am already logged in.

I have the same problem.

It seems that the system logs us out after a period of inactivity.

The annoying thing is that I can type an entire novel as reply, and only when I click 'Post' do I get redirected to the login screen. After that I find myself on the landing page...

All other social media has an option to 'keep me logged in' or 'remember me'.

Please implement something similar here.

If they are using a timeout, it seems to be insanely short.

I use browsers tabs to open & read multiple threads.  It seems like my login is not populated to the new tabs?

Thanks for bringing this up. Are you losing your entire post when this happens?

Yes. The entire post is lost.
I could once again click on Reply just now. I realised that I did not check if I was logged in. When I clicked on the 3 bars top right of screen (using my phone at the moment) I saw the option to login. After logging in I was taken to the landing page instead of back here.

So, 2 issues:
1. Auto logout after period of inactivity.
2. Having option to reply when not logged on and subsequently losing entire post.

So, we can now see a message saying:

Your session has expired.

Sign in again.

Is it possible to keep us logged in?
No auto 'session expiry'?

**** EDIT ****

This automatic session expiration is driving me crazy....

I was in the middle of replying to a post when I received a work-related phone call.

When I got back to my post, I completed my reply and hit 'Post'.

Red message:

Authentication Ticket Mismatched, failed authentication.
Everything I typed was lost....
You are about to lose me...............
