Default Why do I have to login every time I come to this website?

I am a member of a number of internet groups and, with the exception of HDD, I don't have to log in each time I access the groups as I'm automatically logged in. It used to work that way with HDD as well. But for the past several months or longer I have had to log in each time I visit the site. Why is this happening? It's a real pain in the butt.

Same here. Once in a while it will keep me logged in for greater than a day, but usually it logs me out almost every time.

Exactly. It's driving me crazy!

Did this just start, or always? If just, when?

Be sure your browser isn't clearing cookies. This function is cookie based.

I don't clear cookies. But this is interesting. For the first time in months when I pressed on the link in my email I came to this site and I was signed in. Did someone fix something? Or was this just a major coincidence?

Well, that didn't last long. I've been having to login in again each time. It's ridiculous.

Try another browser and see what happens?

I am always signed on when I come back, unless it's been weeks. I know the time frame is more than a week at least.

Let's assume you're right. That doesn't help me one bit. I'm not about to stop using Chrome and switch to IE for one website.

It will tell you you have a problem with your browser, instead of with the site.

I used to be. Ever since around November, I always get logged out after 1-2 days. Never happened in the 10 years previous. Always used Chrome. Always will.
