Signing in?

Postby Dee » Thu Jul 28, 2011 9:38 am

Ive noticed just lately that even though i have clicked to be signed in all the time i somtimes have have to Login in?
Is it my Pc or just something that occurs now and again?

Nothing has changed on the forum side.

Ticking the "keep me signed in" is only valid for a certain period of time with no activity (need to double-check the time) and on the same PC. But more likely, the forum will try to verifiy that it is 'still you' trying to access the forum, it will make a few checks - including IP address. If your IP address has changed since your last activity here (e.g. if your broadband connection went down .... if only for a few seconds you will be assigned a new IP) it will ask you to sign in again - its the only way to verify who you are.

Heres a silly question and is not annoying or anything .sometimes I get asked to sign in "if" i'm not already in when i go to the Aircrews airfields & airshows threads & also aviation chat one .This has happened a lot over time it don't bother me I just wondered why it does this .I don't have keep me logged in checked.It is only these 2 that do this.

Another time same day it will let me read either of these threads by clicking on the last poster . I figured it will be nothing so am just curious really.OR is it the times I get the log in screen due to my router bieng an *rse .

Having had many Broadband & phone problems over the past 3 months .Stroppy ISPs & several routers The last one having been a BT home Hub 3 which leaked like the proverbual sieve,they didnt believe the security on it was seriously faulty ,I had thought it might have something to do with it.

Dee, hit the 'delete all cookies' button at the bottom of the page - you will need to sign in again but hopefully it may help for the future.

HH, Wedgy has the settings applied so you need to be signed in when viewing certain forums - the 'Anything else' area is one, so is the aviation photography forum. I'm sure he will explain better than I can.

My a/v doesn't cause a problem, but I always have to log in after I run Ccleaner.
