Security Token errors and the End User


Well-known member
Just wanted to start a discussion about these errors and usability, as I tend to run into these errors quite a bit. They bother me because I know the average user doesn't understand or expect them? I mostly run into these errors when I leave a forum window open overnight. The next day I'll sit down and try to do a search. I get the error. I'm sure a lot of users do this. Is there any possible way to make it so the user doesn't experience these errors in that situation?

The overnight situation shouldn't come up. The tokens are valid for longer than that. They're valid for 24 hours and they should be updated as soon as you focus the window (giving you another 24 hours).
