Automatic Log out

I hope this hasn't been addressed previously (I searched but couldn't find it), but if it has, I apologize!

Most of the time I visit this forum, I get logged out for no particular reason and without warning, and once that happens, especially if I haven't visited in a while, ALL the new posts I haven't read are marked read! Does anyone know why this is happening? Is it a bug that has not been fixed, or am I the only one with this issue? Lend me your brain....

i haven't experienced this problem, but i'd sure like to hear from anyone else who has so we can start to track it down.

My only problems are that even if I click "log me in automaticly each visit", I still have to log in each visit.

Also, if I use AOL a lot of the time I log in and it just goes back to the log in page over and over....if I use Internet Exploder, I have no problems with that happening.

Well, I think I figured out why I was automatically logged out those times before: I was using dial-up during those times! I use T1 at work and DSL at my mom's (staying there until our new house is built), and I've never had a problem with either one of those.

So, I think it's a good argument to buy a faster connection once we're in our new digs.... :cool:

the aol thing might have something to do with it, but i'm lucky enough to live closeby quay & friend and they have dial-up, we always logoff and logon as a different member w/o a hitch...

aol...ok, something to think about.

we'll be changing s/w mid-july, all this will (fingers crossed) be a thing of the past...meantime, we appreciate you guys hanging in 8)

I finally got fast service at our new house (wireless broadband; love it), and I still have the same problem as before of the Automatic Logout. But, I will agree with Herrmanator8 in that I don't mind having to retype my name and password. This is because this new software does NOT mark ALL the forums as "read" once I've logged off or been automatically logged off as the old software did! That's the reason it bothered me so much to start a topic such as this. But hey, the new software doesn't do that, so I'm 100% happy camper, 0% complainer.

So, I thank the admins for movin' us over!! Plus, this new board looks a heck of a lot better, and is much more user-friendly!

I also seem to be having the same problem with the auto log-out. I'll be in the process of writing and when I go to submit get a message that I'm not loged in and have to sign back in? It will probably happen when I go to submit this reply.

we haven't had any reports of problems wth this since changing software...if cookies are enabled & you checked "remember me" you should be good to go.

please let us know in detail if something is going awry.
