Keep getting bumped off

Exactly how long does a page stay vaild before you must sign in again?

I keep DC up, but while checking the other monitor or other sites, I don't constantly scroll.

When I come back to the site, whether it's 2 hours, or 15 minutes, I have to log in again.

Don't know jkath but I was wondering if you had become a vampire or a cat since you keep getting bumped off!

hmm I don't ever have to log back on and I've left myself in a thread overnight. Do you have your browser save your settings for DC?

Yeah, gotta be a browser thing. I've left it up at work before and picked right back up the next morning after clicking on New Posts.
IMO these vB boards are so feature rich that everything has to be working just right between your browser and the forum. Another forum I am on about six of us (so far) had a temporary problem of the pages always scrolling to the bottom when we opened a new page. The problem disappeared as mysteriously as it arrived. And we weren't all using the same browser either.

I'll bet your glitch goes away in due time.

It must be because you don't like cauliflower, beets, or mashed potatoes and are close to banishment.


Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. I'm in one of those moods.

I believe there was a box I checked that said "remember me".

Once I checked it I'm always logged in.

For how long we'll see. I might be headed for banishment myself.

Neither, I've become a sockmonkey.... (see photo) mwa ha ha ha HA

Zagut - too funny. I do have the "remember me"... but I'm starting to take this personally...

Zereh - checked the browser too...

Guess I'll just have to keep making the grand appearances

Pacanis... that would be a bummer!

Easiest thing to do is just to go delete the cookie that your browser has stored for DC. Then you will have to log on again and can save settings from there.

Not sure which browser you use, but in Chrome:

Click on:
Settings
Advanced Settings
Privacy
Content Settings
All cookies & site data

Then search on "discuss" and delete the entries that come up

I use the "remember me" checkbox too.

When the power went off during Hurricane Isaac, I was on DC. After 99 hours without power, I turned my computer on and was right back at the post I was reading when the power went off.

I'll bet that's the problem.

so, a religious analysis would support that we get bumped off at 100 hours because you've been bad.

a scientific analysis would say that it only happens statistically to a small number of people within a known 99 hour time frame. beyond that requires further study.

a philosophical analysis would say it might happen at any time, so enjoy it while you're still on.

Isn't this supposed to end with, "We spent the night lighting farts?"
