I'm not sure what exactly is going on here, you need to talk to Customer Support to see if this is a glitch or if you are doing something different than the rest .. sorry I can't help further

Yeah, I have the same problem. I get 3 hours instead of 30 min...
Report as
weird, you should get 30 min the first time ... it does go up to 2 hrs but.. I think it is supposed to be 2 30's then a 3hr ... but I am not real familiar with the system it'self that is all handled by the techs
Report as
oops 3 hrs not 2 hrs
Report as
Also, I remember when it happened for the first time. I got a 3 hour break, and as soon as my break finished, I commented to test if my break was really over, and it was. I was glad my break was over, so I decided to comment again on a different question trying to help someone out... and then it said I was on break again for another 3 hours! So basically, I was able to comment once in 6 hours.

yikes that is no good ... def file a ticket with Customer Support so they can look into it, sounds like some sort of technical issue :/ sorry about that

Wait. Is this a forever thing? Sometimes I have several questions going at the same time. I'm bound to get time outs with the new limits. I already have one from congratulating the Hall of Fame winners. If the 30 min., 30 min., then 3 hour never has a reload, I'm dinked!

Hate to waste a comment, but that poochie is really cute Deana!

Thanks Happy that is my dog Tanner... I think the prob people are having with the comments is a glitch or something you should be able to post after each break even the 3hr one

It happens to all of us... You are not being singled out. You can never get back on when the time is up... The 15 minute time outs usually had you back on in just over an hour. 12 hour time outs meant you were done for the day.... or night.

12 hour time out? They go that high? I've only had one time out. That was to congratulate the Hall of Fame winners. By the way, CONGRATULATIONS!
Report as
Yay... ~bows and accepts the applause~ Thank you very much.
Yes... I have had several 12 hour time outs before. That was a long time ago though. I guess I had too much free time.

How are you? I havent been on as much this week.
Report as
I just took a look at it... You made it too.. YAY... CONGRATULATIONS. ~loud whistles from the crowd~ ~tons of applause~

I'm good! We had a great Valentine's Day dinner. We drove a few miles to be by the Mississippi. We watched the eagles as we dined. The music was classic "soft rock," Clapton, Beatles, YAY!

Happy.... Maybe Hall of fame is just random after all. FarmerGirlMaryJo made the Hall of fame and she hasnt even been on for awhile.... over a month.
Report as
Sounds awesome. Glad you had a good time.
Report as
I wondered about that...not a single post all month. But, there may be things we don't know. I'll trust their word and be "Happy." LOL!
Report as
Mary Jo took a break from an illness. She is an awesome lady and deserves it regardless. Hope all is well with her.
Report as
You NEED to be Happy.... Just like I need to evolve. Lol
Report as
Me too! I just emailed her a few days ago. No reply yet. She has lots of things on her plate. Her last email back was in January. I'm staying fairly quiet to give her the peace she needs. I adore that lady!
Report as
I think everyone on here adores her. If you get a chance let her know that she is missed by a lot of us. She needs to do for her, but hopefully she knows she has a lot of friends in here that still think of her often.
Report as
I always do! I tell her I won't remember every name, and then I list a few. You know I'll remember you - you big hunka hairy primeval thing you!

Awww shucks. ~kicks imaginary stone~
