    Logging in to forums

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if other people notice too that while you may have the "keep me logged in" option enabled and saved your credentials in your browser so it could do it for you, you will still find yourself logged out quite often, or even that the site logged you off in the middle of a visit (quite annoying when writing a post... You suddenly don't have the right to post anything and need to open a new tab to log in, or else you might lose whatever you've written).

    Are there any solutions to this? Or do the forum admins need to change some settings before that will pass by? Maybe some extensions or something like that to prevent this kind of issues?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Ok, just as a summary of the hundreds of threads concerning this issue: there is no solution, the forum admins don't care, it has been like this since the forum started and probably it will stay like this until the servers are shut down

    Okay well that's a bummer :/ Thanks for replying though, I found lots of threads about logging in securely but not being logged off. Cheers!

    And if you wonder about a signature like 'Cntrl-A Cntrl-C Cntrl-V'... ever entered a lengthy response to a post and found yourself logged out after pressing submit?

    One correction- the devs do care. They have already posted that the forums are, essentially, getting scrapped and redone in an update coming in the not so distant future (I believe Sapience said possibly sometime in May) The updates should remove a lot of the bloat from the forums as well as issues like the logging out that happens.
