    I login. I look at a thread, I'm no longer logged in. I click another thread, I am logged in. I go to reply to that thread, I'm not logged in. It smells like stratics is a clustered web server and sessions are only saved to one node or something. It never keeps me logged in, and is totally inconsistent.

    I'm not sure what causes that, but it happens to me also. Not nearly as much as it used to happen a few months ago thankfully though.

    I'll need some info

    Browser
    Is it set to accept Cookies , when you log in persistence is partially determined by a session cookie that deletes when you log out.
    Are you using a VPN or other Proxy Service.
