The captcha never went away for me, though the frequency ebbs and flows.

I do get logged off quite a bit. I’ve learned to save drafts of long posts

I write my messages, login in again and then go stepwise back to the window with my message to save it.

I got a captcha just now. This sort of thing prompts me to write longer comments off-line, save, then copy them on-line and submit.

I didn't get any captcha's today. I don't know what has happened, but whatever our administrators have done it has solved the problem.

Edit 19:06: Now the captcha is back...

Yes. I’m back to good today, too.

Thank you, whoever fixed the issue.

I always get a captcha when I first log in (on my phone) and that's fine, but when it logs me out after about 5 seconds of inactivity (because I was reading a post), that's what's getting a tad irritating. :|

Funnily enough, it has stopped logging me out while I spend 20 mins typing a post :lol:

Today no captchas, but I had them yesterday. Is it some kind of nightly cleaning operation that saves us from this phenomenon, and if yes, can it be automatized as a task?

I don't believe that we are doing anything. However, it might be that Amazon perform some kind of nightly purge which is clearing the IP addresses going to the proxy.

And the problem is back for me today.
