    So, when i drink a beer, i take a long time, i sip it slowly, sometimes for up to 4 hours.
    When i review a beer, i don't rush typing out a review, i inspect the beer, i let it develop and see what changes over time. I try to be accurate and honest.

    This takes me an hour or two, and everytime i go to hit the Submit button, i have timed out of being logged in to BA, and i can not even hit the back button to retrieve all my notes, i lose everything.

    Then in frustration i generally submit a review that is 39% as good as the one i originally typed up, which was pure brilliance on level of Stienbeck, Alighieri, Huxley, Lewis, Etc.

    Do you have any suggestions Bros? Should i review in mucho haste and compromise thoroughness?

    Write most or all of it in Word, then copy and paste. Then you can polish and do the ratings, etc.

    Choose the log out button on the top right. Then log back in and before you hit the "log in" button, check the box for "stay logged in." This will keep you from timing out during reviews.

    What stakem said. This is not a bug, but rather a user option.
