Logging in deja-vu

Post by sapphireblack » Sat May 14, 2022 1:45 pm

Not the first time with this irritation, each and every visit I have to log in. Tedious.

I'm outside of the UK but AFAIK that shouldn't matter. Its the only forum that does this.

Cookie settings? I always tick the ‘Remember me’ box as well. If you don’t then you need to log in every time.

But I never log out and 'remember me' disappears as soon as I type my user name. log-in info is remembered by the device. This started yesterday.

Odd. Not sure why the system seems to pick on you.

My guess is a combination of 'rural' Internet supplied via a WiFi hot-spot, it's the best we can get here, and basically poor local infrastructure generally.
For now service is near normal. Long may it continue 🤞

The only thing that I can think of is that the login cookie isn’t being received somewhere, or is being blocked via the ISP for some obscure reason.

That's a technical sounding issue, and beyond my pay grade. I suspect my current location could be relevant :|
