    Every time I close Stratics, it logs me out. I have "stay logged in" checked but it's not working. Any ideas?

    What browser? All ok here in Chrome on windows 7.

    Try clearing cache, cookies etc and relighting maybe.

    It's weird. I'm currently logged in to be able to post on UHall. Yet when I go to the Rares Forum, it shows me logged out. So I log in there. Come back to UHall and I'm logged in still. Seems it logs me out if I switch between forums.

    *giggles* That's funny @Dot_Warner !

    Okay, I had to dump my entire Chrome history (through all time) and the cookies used on Stratics had to be reset.
    This is because there was a complete DNS change yesterday for Stratics - which caused a bit on wonkiness with cookies and the ssl but got settled within about 15 minutes. With new DNS servers, everything is having to be reset.

    Recommend everyone just clean all caches, fully (including cookies) and allow the new cookies to settle in.
    Is good practice to clear out all caches and reset cookies. They do get stale... and stale cookies are bad for you.

    Well, sorry it's me again with the unpleasant question, but: @Kirthag Will SSL be enabled anytime soon again?

    Just a quick follow up for those interested in their account security:

    In the process of fixing the login issues Stratics has disabled support for SSL on their servers, thus removing end-to-end encryption foor the connection between your browser and the stratics server.

    It is considered good pratice to secure such connections when you send user credentials over them (i.e. logging in with your password), and many sites nowadays force you to use SSL connections, like google, facebook, and many more.

    However Stratics now does the opposite: If you surf to https://stratics.com it will even redirect you to the unencrypted standard http site with no secure connection.

    The implications are simple: While before those change you could be sure that neither your roommate, nor some hotel-owner, nor some other employee in your company, (you name it) .. could read you Stratics passwords, it's now easy as pie for all of them.

    If you think your passwords here are used somewhere else too, or if you just worship your account here a lot, you should probably consider this change and think twice from now on, where you login from into Stratics.

    I contacted adminstration about it but they did not see any need for a secure connection to Stratics any longer.
