It's kinda annoying

when the forum thinks that it's a good thing to have the participants "log in" about every second day. I thought perhaps I had some degree of short time memory loss but the powers that be here suffer considerably more than I do. :(

Was that a rantette? :P I have to login when haven't posted for 24 hours, Lee. Reckoned it was a "recent" bell or whistle. Don't need to key in user name and password which saves me about 22 seconds of time. laffs

I have to type in user name and password at least once a day.

The forum asks me to log in every morning. But then my machine is turned off for the nite. Firefox remembers my name and password so all I have to do is 'click'. :)

The only time I have to log in is if I've cleared the cookies, etc. I believe that's how it's supposed to work. I turn my computer off every night and that doesn't affect the memory.

William mentioned awhile ago that we'll be asked to log in once a week. That seems to be about right for me, although there are times when it seems more frequent than that.

I haven't had to login in ages. Perhaps it's your security settings?

I always have to log in with password and user name

I know it takes only a few seconds but I do find it annoying too especially if I do come in more than once a day. I have to every time I come in

About once a week for me here. Safari remember my login INCORRECTLY, even though I've edited it over and over again in the Keychain and re-saved the correct info.

Something about this site overrides my Keychain/Safari preferences. Not a biggie, I only have to change one field and as soon as I start typing it auto-fills.

BF, set Safari to remember passwords, or go into Keychain and manually add this account here, with your login details.
