Is the forum set up to automatically log users off after some period? I routinely get logged off, if I'm participating / watching posts, but haven't actually changed screens or posted in the forum for a while. Then when someone replies to an active thread, I have to login again.
There's a check box on login page to "remember my ID", which keeps most forums from kicking you off.
Yes, There is an Auto-logout on the forum after a period of inactivity.
Buy an Eikon mini USB fingerprinter for your notebook or desktop. The AuthenTec people are mostly out of business now, but the HP SimplePass software works on it and there is a Validity driver that works for it that is still around.
No more logging back in when you are bounced out. Just swipe your finger. Magic for people who do not like to type passwords.
