Forum Signs Me Out
 
Why does this forum sign me out if I'm inactive for a while? It's really annoying. This is the only forum of many that I participate in that does that.

Many sites automatically sign you out after being inactive for a while. You can probably fix your issue by checking the "Remember Me?" box when you sign in. However then you have to decide who else uses your machine too. If none but you, then shouldn't be an issue.

This is the only site that does that of numerous forums I participate on. If I have this website up on the screen and I'm not active on it for a while, it signs me out.

"remember me" is not what fixes the issue.

So you aren't going to try it and see?

LOL. Clicking the “Remember Me” box tells the browser to save a cookie so that if you close out the window for the site without signing out, the next time you go back, you will be signed back in automatically.

That is not what the problem is.

I used to have this issue years ago, sometimes even getting signed out while composing a post. Clicking "remember me" fixed it.

Click Remember Me and if you're still signed out, then I will escalate to our tech team.
