My apologies for getting back to you late. I was on holiday for the last two weeks, and still am. Unfortunately it seems I wasn't the only one away. If your issue hasn't been resolved, please PM me your character name, server and a time you will be online in PST.
You can PM by going to my profile, click the person icon and click 'create conversation'.
One question though, was your timer gone for awhile before you logged off? It should have ported you out as soon as it disappeared, but if you disconnect or log off midway, it causes you to be stuck.
