Someone has shortened the reply timeout again. I still don't understand why a timeout has to exist. If I enter a lengthy answer I'd love to hit the responsible admin if I get an empty form (start new topic) in response to pushing the "Post" button. If I hit the back button of my browser my complete answer is gone and although I saw frequently that some draft should have been saved I couldn't restore my answer (not even part of it) over the link in my profile.
So put that answer timeout to 10 hours or more or better remove it completely. I see no need for such a timeout, the forum system should care about how long it took for me to type the answer.
