    Problem Logging In

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by lordofhats, Nov 9, 2007.

    Ok, this has happened to me twice thus far. I'm just going around the forum looking at topics and posts the usual. I'll click a link ormy back button and all of a sudden I'm not logged in anymore.

    I try to log back in and get the "Thankyou for logging in so ans so" notice. However once I'm redirected It says I'm not logged in. I try again and the same thing happens. Eventually I close my browser start it up again adn it'll let me log in.

    Anyone know what this problem is and how to fix it?

    I'm not sure what the problem is, but it's happened to me a few times (not recently). Lpspider would be the person to talk to about it. Give him a PM.

    Something similar used to happen to me a year ago when I first joined. I just never logged out and so whenever I click back on the site I'm automatically logged in. It also automatically logs me out as well so it's a convenient method. That also is a major contradiction but from where I'm standing everything makes sense and runs smoothly. :)

    Can't say I've ever had log in problems.

    99% of the time it's something on your end. Trying clearing the cookies would be my first suggestion - also make sure they're enabled.

    I get the problem all the time so I don't click on links. It has to do with my end this I do know.

    I've just had my laptop updated and mem ship added and it hasn't happened today so who knows lol

    I have this problem too. It is not all the time, but more sporatic.

    I'll try as Torana suggested, maybe that'll help.
