Forums not 'remembering' me

Greetings Mr. Blo,

I have tested this with both IE10 and Chrome. When I log into the forums, hit remember me, and the close the browser and come back to the website, I am not being remembered and have to log in each time I come here.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried wearing a funny hat?

Yes, and the problem persists even when I switch computers.

Ditto what the above have said. Same problem for the same amount of time, have it whether I'm in Firefox, Chrome, or Safari, have cookies enabled, not having the problem anywhere else.

Using Firefox here and has already been mentioned, the same problem started for me about two months ago. This is the only site/board which forgets my login and password. Not a huge problem - I don't mind having to enter the info - but it is strange.

Ya, I am having the same problem.. I did not change any settings but one day I just had to start logging in each time I came on the boards. Also, if I do a massive update on one of my threads that sometimes require massive updates (like the DVD/Blu Ray release date thread) it will log me out before I even finish posting!

Not a big deal to keep logging in, but figured id chime in that this is happening to me as well!

You guys only have this since two months? I can't recall a time the forum ever remembered me.

Apologize. I was responding, I thought, to After Earth thread.

Please delete me.

Same shit is happening to me as well. Only on these forums, and it doesn't matter what browser I use.

Been that way for months. Fortunately, the forums are so stale I never come here.

It appears it is a reverse of how the system worked before... before the main page would not remember me, and I would have to log in every time to post a comment on a front page news story and the forums remembered me.. now the main page remembers me and the forums dont.

I'm having this problem as well. The problem doesn't lie in closing the browser and reopening itů if you do that within a few minutes you are still signed in. It's that there is a time limit to being inactive. If you go over it, you are automatically logged out. Even if you never closed the browser or left the website. I just joined recently, and have been trying to make my way around the forums, reading up on threads, so I'm not posting only reading. If I have been inactive for a while (seems to be about 10 minutes or so) just reading, it logs me out. Clicking "remember me" is supposed to avoid this. It is a bit annoying having to keep logging back in whe trying to read!

Correct. The problem is that after around 12-15 minutes of inactivity, the forum automatically logs you out.

No other forum I've ever visited has done this.

So the question becomes: "what is causing this?"

Well... the "remember me" is not working. I hope it's fixed soon. I've written a couple of messages, then been called away, only to come back and I'm logged out, and my message is gone! It's just as frustrating when I'm reading and get logged out, and my place is lost.

The vBulletin forum has some info about this problem. It's an older post so I don't know if it still applies but the forum might be a good place for TPTB to check for help.

Almost two months after a promise of an "Update soon"........still no answer and the problem still continues. Hopefully the delay is because they fired their web admin for being useless and are conducting a search for someone capable of doing their job and fixing simple forum issues such as user login timeouts and adding youtube embedding. No wonder this forum is friggin dying.

Well ever since they started pushing their fake facebook crap, the forums have been long forgotten so do not expect this to get fixed.

Yeah, this problem still persists and nobody is taking care of it. I guess this place really is falling behind. If the forum isn't being maintained then why should anybody bother using it?

Lame.

Not for nothing man but every post I've seen of yours has been something negative or a complaint. Maybe bring some more positivity or legit contribution to these boards if you really want to help get them back to the way they used to be.

It's not all about you, buddy. No one is spending time going through every single one of your posts. I noticed you had beef with someone else on this thread in regards to the political boards too. Instead of complaining to everyone (even the site creator) start being a positive contribution to the boards and not worry that it takes you an extra five seconds to log on to the site every time. Trust me, there are bigger things in life to worry about. Nice talking to you and please don't be offended if I don't respond to anything else you have to say directed toward me.
