    Earlier today I was unable to log in to Stratics no matter how many times I tried. I finally discovered the problem. The box was unchecked (to stay logged in). I used to be able to log in regardless of whether or not the box was checked. Evidently there is no longer a choice? Am I the only one who has had this happen?

    Glad you posted that! I've been trying to log in for quite a while this afternoon and nothing was working. I don't like to use the option to stay logged in for most any site that I frequent. Would much rather just log in when I have a post to make and then stay logged out and anonymous until the next time.

    Me too! I don't even check the option to stay logged in on my email or any other place I normally visit. Why does Stratics have to be different, I wonder. o.0

    Edit: Maybe this has something to do with the fact some of us were being involuntarily logged out when we would switch from one forum to another? I guess having to stay logged in might remedy that particular problem?

    Have you figured out yet how to log out of Stratics since this change was made? I've been unsuccessful finding an option to log out....

    The drop down menu with the Log Out option seems to only be available if I turn on JavaScript. I really, really would rather not turn on JavaScript on this site. Not happy at all about these changes!

    This is NOT fixed at all. In fact whatever has been done has just made it so that there is no way at all for me to ever log out of Stratics! If I try to log out, the fact that I checked the "keep me logged in" button is instantly logging me back in again.

    This is very, very irritating. Not making a good impression on me at all.

    Would you guys please fix this?? I do NOT want to stay logged in to Stratics all the time. However, you've now fixed things so that if I log out (after being forced to do on JavaScript to do so), I'm instantly logged back in again because you required me to check the "stay logged in" box when I last logged in. The thread that was started earlier today about this is now locked so I can't add any posts to it, so it looks like you guys are just trying to sweep this change under the rug.

    I am NOT happy about this kind of shenanigans.

    I usually clear out my history, passwords and cookies, etc. every time I close my browser. That seems to work well.

    Yeah, I found the Stratics cookies and deleted all of them and that finally worked to log me out. Shouldn't have to do that just to log off a site.

    I'm kind of a tech-illiterate, so I just do whatever I have to do as long as it works okay. :)

    You should not have to select the stay logged in button if you don't want to. The issue that happened earlier yesterday morning was not related to that feature. There was a service on our server that crashed and needed to be restarted. As a result, the server was dropping connections until the service was restarted. The service wasn't restarted until this evening. No features related to logging in or out have been adjusted.

    The issue appears to have come back. We are looking into the cause and solutions, sorry for the inconvenience.

    We are still investigating this issue, but if you are having trouble logging in our out. Clear your browser cache and cookies. After doing that, you shouldn't have any more trouble.
