    Anyone else having to sign in every few days, here and XSpot? This is a new thing; I used to be able to leave personal pc/work laptop/tablet logged in all the time now I keep having to re-login. The only thing not affected is my 'phone where I access with Tapatalk. Doesn't appear to affect other websites, so I don't think it is a Chrome thing. Anyone else experiencing this, or is it just me?

    Me too. I only login from different computers and check the "keep me logged in" option, but I keep having to log in.

    Cheers, Jock

    I had to re-log-in twice recently, but that process seems to be over (for now).

    I haven't been to the sister sites in awhile and I had previously checked the box "remember me on this computer". I just checked and have been signed out of all of them. Maybe some sort of forum software update?

    Same here, but only one some machines. At work, I need to log in each time. At home I do not. Running Win7 on everything except one machine.

    I've been having to do this on all Amin's forums these last couple of weeks. Thought it was just my iPad but I seem to be doing it on my iMac also now. Some I haven't signed into because I can't remember the password and can't be bothered to go through "that" process each time either!

    Yesterday there was a server upgrade that logged everyone out. But other than that, I don't know what is going on. I've asked our server admin to look into this.

    I had just assumed I was being stupid about something. I haven't ruled that out quite yet . . .

    I'm also locked out of a few. And it's bad when a moderator gets locked out and is too lazy to do a password recovery.

    If this is happening on an iPhone or iPad, make sure safari is not running in "Private" mode. Open Safari, tap on the multiple tabs icon (should be furthest to right), and make sure Private is not highlighted.

    For all others, make sure your browser is set to accept cookies, which is the default.

    I haven't been logged out this past week, so I assume whatever happened with the server, it just passed over me while I wasn't online. iPad Mini.

    it looks like I've been logged out so long that Amin grew a beard !

    Although to be fair, my icon is using an E-M5 (which I haven't owned in years...... though if you know of anyone selling a silver one.......)

    I don't even have an apple in my fruit bowl ;) what puzzles me is that Tapatalk has stayed connected each time. I would have expected "one out, all out" for a server-level reset.

    And I thought it was only me with this issue.

    Happens a lot to me. 2x a week at least. This and the Fuji sister site. I use Chrome on both PC and Android mobile, as well as Firefox on PC.
