Whose idea was it to make all of us regular posters have to log in every time we access the forum. It is ridiculous and stupid. You make us do this but you can't for some reason make new members make their location mandatory. You are just about to loose me

Nothing we've done as far as I know Chuck?

Are you sure it's not something on your computer, like anti virus or clearing cookies?

Maybe this is just my computer? Does everyone else have to log in every time even though you clicked keep logged in

I did a systems restore. I still don't know what happened or what was wrong but it fixed it. Everything is back to normal

I'm actually having this issue as well with one of my computers. Sadly I don't have the luxury of just doing a system restore.

What's weird is that it only seems to happen on Firefox. It's not just this forum too, some other forums are repeatedly logging me out as well.

Sorry for the slow reply Chuck, it shouldn't force you to log in to the forums every time. As the others have already mentioned here, it's probably due to a cookie security setting in your browser - but glad it's working now after a restore.

With regards to the location problem, I am just about to post something on that very issue now in a new thread :).

I am new here and I have checked that 'stay logged in' or whatever and so I have no need to login each time.

Not sure about your computer but you can sign in/log on bookmark it and then go on without anything more than clicking your bookmark. That's how I do it I don't like to have to log in to this type site.

Check to see that Firefox is up to date.

I wish this site was more iPad friendly. Haven't owned a computer in years now. Still an awesome informative site!!!!
