    Reply after your own post edits instead of new message

    When I try to enter a new message following my own message (post??), it always ends as an Edit to my previous message, instead of making a new one.

    It does this whether I use Reply, Reply to Thread, or Advanced.

    Is this how it is supposed to work?

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Ok, for example...
    This is a "Reply to Thread". I would like it to be a new message, but... here it is in my original message!!

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Now, this is a Quick Reply.

    It appears I cannot do anything but add Edits to my existing message, until someone else creates a new message in the thread. After that, I can create one new message.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    This is a "Go Advanced" message. I even entered a new Title for it. But the Title will not show up. And this will be added to my existing message.

    Help!!

    TD - Thanks for the reassurance that I'm not completely nuts!

    I suppose one could sign up another userid, and use that to post "spacer messages" between the meaningful messages.

    Is the session timeout for this site really short? I seem to get logged out rather quickly - like 5 minutes or so. Often, by the time I have thought a minute and typed a Reply, I have to log in again.

    Mine doesn't time out. I also have the "keep me logged in" selected at the login.

    ... just ping me with a link whenever you need an interrupt posted

    FWIW - A workaround for adding something before someone else has replied to your post is to edit your post and add the new stuff after a line of dashes.

    You can even do it more than once...
