    The entirely too short time between posting and editing may be detrimental.

    Nevermind the entirely too short time to write a post.

    Just trying to help... Don't mind me...

    If you make an error that really needs to be corrected, you can use the report function or just correct it in a follow-up post. The edit window is purposely short to eliminate malicious editing.

    Also, I'm not sure about a time to write a post - I don't think there is one.

    If you don't want to get logged out, then you have to check the "Remember me" box before logging in.

    Entirely short? AFAIK it is near 12 hours, more than enough time to recheck a post (a quick proof-read is usually enough to spot anything importing).
    Are you getting logged out or something? Try the suggestion above, ticking the "remember me" box.

    I think what the OP is talking about is the fact that if you take too long to write the post, it gives some kind of error when you click submit, so then you have to click the back button and hope the text you typed is still there.

    EDIT: I think the error it gives is something like "This form has expired. Click the back button to resubmit your data." Those aren't the exact words, but that's the general idea.
