I can't stay logged in

Fri May 13, 2016 1:02 pm

So this started happening about mid-day yesterday. When I click on some threads or forum posts, it logs me out of the site, telling me "The board requires you to be registered and logged in to view this forum," requests me to log in again. It started with this thread link by MC, and now has done the same with a link to a different thread by Muffin by Muffin. However, it doesn't do it with ALL the threads and links.
Has this happened to anyone else?
Did I break something?

Also, I want to make a note that I know that a lot of people love to be sarcastic. Please don't make any jokes on this thread. I want it to a serious, and possibly informational thread.

Have you tried clearing your cookies etc? Also does this happen when you are moving around on mobile or on a stationary PC that's always connected to the same internet connection?

I actually cleared my cache and cookies after posting this and realizing "Huh. That's step 2 after 'turning it off and on again'."
And this is on a PC compooter.

It just happened to me as well, so it seems to be site related rather than something on your end.

Just cleared my cookies etc as well, see if it happens again.

I have this problem all the time. But recently its been more annoying because i'm logged in to the site in one tab, chatting in the chat, and when I open another tab it asks me to log in. Usually it only asks me to log in once per day.

Same here, I only have the login issue on my smartphone and my tablet. I think it's actually caused by the chat trying to refresh while my devices are changing their network to have a better connection

Those having the problem should click the option at the bottom of the boards called "Delete all board cookies." It should force refresh and solve most of hte problems.

Alright... It's getting pretty annoying. I can't vote in the MOTM poll because it logs me out when I open it up.
I have tried:
- Clearing cache and cookies
- Different browser
- Clearing board cookies
- Restarting and installing all updates
I have an Apple Macbook Pro with Firefox 47.0b3.


And then the Warthog sound came up at 12:33 and 12:41 AM today. Apparently Brick changed it. PLEASE change it back to whatever non-disruptive sound it was before. MY computer will play that sound ever 10-15 minutes.

Happened again just now. I was able to view the DnD Group B thread, but when hit "Reply," it logged me out. Still no idea on what causes this?
EDIT: Actually, to clarify, it seems to happen when I click on the "Group A here" or "Group B here" links on each of the DnD threads. It seems to sign me out, but when I access other parts of the website, it may let me still see everything as if I was a member, but comes up with a window that says "You do not have the permissions... etc". Then when I select anything like a "Reply" link on a thread, it asks me to re-log in.

Somehow the session/cookies on your device keep getting messed up. I don't know what to tell you other than clear your cookies and close all previous instances of the site before logging in again. I don't think anyone else has had this issue since that first day so I don't think it's something on the sites end at this point. Did you check for the sid thing at the end of your url?
