    Can this be removed or extended greatly? I have edited comments on numerous occasions and spent ages adding extra content, saved and then the added content disappears because of the timeout. It's really frustrating.

      If you are going to spend a lot of time, you might want to consider doing your writing and editing in Word or another application and then copying and pasting the end result on to HubPages.

        It seems a bit convoluted to have to do this. There's only a 5 minute window which seems a bit ridiculous for a comment that could be a few paragraphs long with technical details. Couldn't the timeout be suspended during editing? What's annoying is that anything typed disappears on saving and refreshing the page doesn't bring it back (unlike text capsule edits).

          My guess would be that "comment" is considered to be a brief answer so there is only a brief amount of time allowed to write.

    I agree 5 minutes isn’t a big enough window for changing comments. I think it should be at least 10.

    ....or maybe popup a window during an edit asking us do we want to save? I wonder what the logic is behind such a short editing time? Has it something to do with stopping bots commenting?

    Just got caught out again by the timeout. I have to copy my original comment, delete it and tag on a bit to make a new comment replacing the old one. In the meantime someone places an intervening comment so everything goes out of sync.
