    Default Logging out automatically

    It seems as though this website logs out members very quickly, especially if you open another link or window. What’s up with that? I figure it was related to reducing demand on resources.

    Not seeing it: I have been continuously logged in for weeks, if not longer.

    Did you check the "keep me logged in" box when you signed in?

    Like silverlifter I remain logged-in for ages unless I clear history or cookies. Just before completing the password box of my log-in details I always check the "stay logged-in" box. That seems to work.

    You may have a setting that clears cookies every time you open a new window?

    Yes, I've been caught by that a long time ago when I didn't notice the choice. When you log in, there should be a "stay logged in" box you can tick. Same as most sites. The reason for not keeping you logged in otherwise is for your own security - same as the bank, although much less important.
