Well, not constantly, exactly - but pretty often.  If GT is sitting on my taskbar for too long, then I have to log in.  I did the old recommendations, to no avail.  Nothing in Profile that I can find to set a time limit...

There is absolutely no hurry on this BTW - so take your time - after all, it's the holidays, Black Friday, etc.  I just have to mention this stuff when I remember it, or it never happens - as you know!

Thanks! This place and you folks are still The Best!  Tongue

EDIT TO ADD - LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT BE OVER, YIPPEE!  I WAS LOGGED IN ALL DAY YESTERDAY, WITH SOME TWO-HOUR IDLE TIMES MIXED IN.  TRYING AGAIN TODAY... *fingers crossed*  Tongue

No, not over, rats! Let me ask this - is there a time limit for leaving GT idle on the task bar?  I'm talking hours, not days, lol...   Also, if my wireless signal drops, for a few seconds - would that be enough to cause the problem?  

Thanks!

Just curious, when you relogin, do you make sure that the check box is checked?

Do you mean that one?  That's the only box I can think of that you mean - and I never used to check it before...  :?

I believe it's an IE6 thing. (under XP I've had it happen at work and at home) ... this came after playing around with security settings. I reinstalled my OS at home and now I don't have to log in more than once. I'd try resetting the security zones, clear the cache and delete all offline content including cookies (esp. any gamingtrend.com cookies).

by IE6 - do you mean Explorer?  If u do, I'm on Firefox... I'll try that stuff anyway, though, just in case!  Tongue  thanks!

Edit to add:   just realized, I've done half of that already - cleared the cookies, cache, everything I could clear except for a few saved passwords.

Giving this a bump, cz the problem still exists.  I paid more attention to when other websites' links would take over the GT page, redid all the cookies, cache, etc - and I still have to log in more often.

Is there a time limit that you can stay on the site for - say I get busy with email or whatever, and GT is sitting on the taskbar minimized (that's what happened today)... will it "time out?" - and if so, how long will it take?

Also, could a screen saver interfere with it in some way (it never used to).

And, no - I don't like checking the box to log in automatically every time.   If I don't use my user names and passwords, I'd forget them, so I rarely use those features.   But I didn't before either - and this logging in problem has only been since we've become GT... :?   I'm using Firefox, btw - as I was on CG...

Any more ideas?  Answers?  Thanks! Tongue

Just FYI - We aren't ignoring this Myto.  We have some very big irons in the fire that may fix this, so hang tight! smile

This can sometimes be caused by a firewall not playing nice.

Just something to try.

Hey, I knew you would never ignore one of us!  And I can be verrry patient... especially for something cool - er, hot - big irons in the fire, can't wait!  :shock:

I doubt it's the firewall issue, because I haven't changed anything on my laptop, but I'll have my expert check on that.  My level of expertise stops fairly quickly past the "on" button.  :lol:

LOL, thanks, Cal, that's so nice!  But, trust me when I say that a little extra logging in is not what's been keeping me somewhat quiet of late.  I've had a crummy virus/ cold thingy and have mostly been sleeping away the time, and playing Animal Crossing DS, flipping TV channels, etc. I check in every day, I'm just not posting as much as usual.  frown

I'll be right as rain (whatever that means) soon, I'm sure, and you'll see my absurdly long posts again!  :lol:

PS, love the new avatar!  Tongue

Might be enough to reset the cookie, but I doubt it Myto.  I'm not sure why this is happening to you and not to anyone else. frown  I've not given up yet - we have some patches going in soon that might help.

If you scroll to the bottom of the forums to login there, you will see the checkbox there.

Yeah that worked...but why did the checkbox disappear from the regular login link?  It happened to me too.

We applied a security patch.  Seems that was part of it.
