Why if I post a long post does it fail?

So if I have a Poly-esquce moment and post a load of words on the ap it sometimes says "posting here us not allowed"

Using Android on KitKat.

I don't know, sorry. The app is a third party product (Tapatalk) so we don't have any input or control over it. Just hope it doesn't get "upgraded" to the latest version which is a train wreck!

Looks like it must be time related as I just cut n paste a long reply and it works. I guess it knows I've taken too long to type and thinks i need to re authenticate something.

Its a "stop waffling" filter!

Tapatalk authentication has a cookie-like function which when you login gives the app a "session ID". The "session ID" expires at the server after a period of time. Every time you do something in the App that sends a message to the server (e.g. requesting a new page of threads) the server updates the expiry time of your "session ID". If you spend too long composing a message the content is sent with a now expired "session ID" so you get the error message you saw.

I don't know how long the expiry is set at - but the default is 15 minutes. The error could be trapped at the app - but (i) as JK says its not ours and (ii) normal people don't need it!

I wonder if an app is really necessary these days ? what with bigger phones phablets etc ?

*edit* plus many forums have a mobile friendly version on offer

I don't use it for push messages but I suspect it may handle them.

( ii ) that sounds like discrimination?

Gurnards posts will be longer than mine...
