One of the long running complaints in the game is the lack of time to post a message. If a player is writing a long message that takes longer than 5 minutes to create they get logged out and lose everything they wrote. (Side Note: The Opera Browser will let you use the back button to retrieve what you wrote. Everything you wrote will still be in the textbox. You can copy it from the textbox and not lose anything you wrote.) This is a huge pain since many players will have to type in everything all over again after logging in again.

We have come up with a solution for this problem. When you are creating Sector notes, sending a message to another player, posting in the casino or team forums, or leaving feedback your timeout will be delayed. When you send or save your message it WILL be saved and not lost. Once the message has been sent or saved you will be logged out if you timed out while writing the message.

This means you will have all the time in the world to write your message and have no fear of it being lost while creating it. Conversely, you cannot use this to keep yourself online forever. :)
