Not sure why I or anyone hangs around.

I've posted a few things this morning. Came back to the website forums and noticed that I wasn't logged in (I have clicked Keep me logged in) so I clicked on Log-In.

I am then taken to the front of the website (as usual) but am faced with a message that I am already logged in.

Went back to the forum.

Still logged out!!

Went back to fron page - still logged in so I logged out then logged in again.

For goodness sake please get enough developers in to sort out the mess that is Bike Radar and stop all this cr4p.

This forum has more problems that all the other forums I frequent put together.

    at the moment data is/has been moved over servers but not seen any issues here.

    maybe it is all these other sites you visit that are causing your issues.

    was logged in here last week and still am this week.

    still logged in on my iProducts and also my PC that I rarely use.

    Cracker of a response............

    I was logged on to BR with all my devices without issue until late last week when ALL of them (phone, work PC, home PC, tablet) suddenly showed that I was logged out.

    Given the pi55 poor performance of the BR radar website over the last few months I know where I suspect the issues lie.

    I'd say that's a pretty daft assumption too, I quite often find that my account is logged out despite always ticking the box to keep logged in :?

    Happens to me too. Every time I want to post a reply or go into Bottom Bracket I have to log out and then log back in again. The time I waste doing that is time I could spend finding a cure for cancer.

    And you are using?

    Operating system and browser?

    Count yourself lucky - I still can't log in at work at all. Been like this for weeks. The 'new beta' thread really ought to be renamed 'old beta' now - it's been that long that if the beta was cheese it wouldn't be safe from 100 paces.

    I do hope something is happening........

    I have just had to log out and back in again to read your comment :roll:

    Ok you don't have a problem, we've established that, but others do, I am simply reporting the issue, please pass this on to someone who can do something, BTW if I want sarcastic responses to my posts I will post on bottom bracket!

    Websites uses Cookies to store information on your PC. It's primarily a way of tracking your activity on the website, to store preferences information, log-in details (ID, not password) and so forth. When the website software changes the information in those Cookies becomes redundant as the software is expecting to read information from those Cookies at different locations. It is why you have to have clear your Cookies information and start over again.

    The reason they are called Cookies is not biscuits and a cup of tea after a hard day's ride. The analogy is similar though. The website will give you an imaginary Cookie (as in goodie) if you allow it to store some info on your PC for repeated use. It's generally an invasive ploy to keep tab on who's reading the website really.
  • bartimaeusbartimaeus Posts: 1,812
    I'm reasonably familiar with cookies: I've just not used many sites that require me to keep clearing them. Last night's 'clear cookies' about 12 hours before I had to do it again and it's only Firefox that seems to give me this issue which seems odd, but now Nick has reminded me what to do I'm fine, thanks.

    To be honest at most this is 'mildly annoying', and not enough to spoil my enjoyment of the Forum.

    Skylark - The cookie in question is used to validate your session, so that when you browse the website it keeps you logged in. This is the standard way across most websites which have a login option.

    Bartimaeus - Yeah, sorry about that. We're working on a way to get it fixed so that you don't have the annoyance of having to keep logging in. We're a fresh development team working on the Bike Radar website, so we're having to put together all the pieces of what is/isn't broken so that we can get the most important things fixed first and then move on to the other smaller fixes.
