Thanks martin and fort-da-game, I'm having trouble reproducing either of these or seeing an obvious cause, but will try to sort out.

It just occurred to me to reset safari as this has been going on for a week now and it has worked, so if anyone else is having the same problem this does the trick (although it also means you have to log-in again to all other sites).

Wasn't able to log in for a long while. Cleaning cookies and history, everything, seemed to fix it.

I don't have a problem logging in anymore, but for some reason when I want to track myself I am always asked to log in again (or confirm my log in) even though I am already logged in... Is that just a side effect like the "welcome back" stuff?

Yeah it's just a side effect, as is the 'validation error'. I'm a bit distracted between work and the student protests at the moment but I'll try to look at these next time I'm looking at the site itself.

I've tried loads of things to stay logged in with FF and it looks like it might work now. I can finally add information to my profile (never been able to before).

What is this Captcha thing though? Is it meant to be there on every post you make? I hate those things and it takes me ages to find words I can actually read.

It might take a little while, but I'm going to make it so that regular users of the site don't see a captcha when posting.

Still happening, I just got logged out while I was typing a post.
Weird because I was still logged in this morning.

Last couple of days it has been logging me out whenever I close the browser. Able to log in easily enough, but it's tedious to keep on doing it. There's no 'remember me' box either.

Using firefox 3.6.13 in Vista. I don't think I've changed any settings and it doesn't look to be set to delete cookies.

Has been logging me out. Completely lost an article I was putting into the library. I also no longer see a 'Remember Me' checkbox.

Really sorry for anyone experiencing problems.

Basically the "remember me" fix for this problem caused the validation error problem other users highlighted.

Removing it has meant that people are being logged out more frequently. We are trying to sort it!

Just tried tweaking a setting, let me know if anything change (after the first time you get logged out).

I'm still getting logged out very frequently, including sometimes while trying to make posts

That happened to me once recently also. And you can never get back to that page you had worked on. It's just gone.

Made some changes which may help with this today, had to log everyone out at the same time to do this though. So once you've logged in again, please keep an eye on it and post in here either way.

Have been logged in for nearly 36 hours now so I think this might be resolved, would be good to have that confirmed though.

Working fine for me as well. Hopefully this is sorted! That would be really great if it is (touch wood)
