    Default I keep getting logged out

    When I first visit the forum, I see the article list. Then suddenly I am redirected to the login screen, and I can only return to the article list after about fifteen seconds. Ugh.

    Then often I'll answer a question, spending ten minutes, taking screenshots, etc. I click on Post Quick Reply or Go Advanced, and I am returned to the login screen. All traces of the answer I've worked on have been eradicated.

    Sometimes I remember to copy everything before I post, but usually I forget until I've lost two or three answers in a session.

    Why is this happening? Actually, I don't care why it happens, I just want it to stop. It makes me so crazy that I want to jump over to Stack Overflow.

    Can't anything be done about this?

    I know you know but I don't know what you know



    Post your Excel version (PC / Mac?), also link to shared excel file with representative example of source data and expected result.

    Did you try deleting your cookies, cache, and temporary internet files?
    That can sometimes happen if you have a corrupt cookie on your computer.

    BTW, which browser are you using, out of curiosity?

    I'm using Chrome.

    I have to check the computer I was on when I had the issue last night; maybe Remember Me isn't checked there. It is checked on this one, and there was no problem on it this morning.

    I have been using Chrome for years too, and haven't had any issues (I find it works best, at least for me).

    If the issue was on one specific computer, that certainly seems to point the issue being computer-specific, so nothing we can control here on this end.
    An unchecked "Remember Me" button and/or corrupt cookies are the most common reasons I have seen for this type of behavior.
