Interesting, thanks for the schooling. I'm not tech savvy at all and don't know how that works. So do you think it's a simple fix for ben if it's cookies?

.

The main problem is that AFAIK the Org runs on a custom version of 20 year old forum software. Usually a bug like the one we're experiencing now would have been caught and fixed in an update aeons ago, but now Ben has to look for it himself. Might even be a quirk related to how the software interacts with a specific version of PHP. It might be easy to solve, but quite frankly date/time issues are among the most annoying issues to pinpoint and fix when it comes to software.

.

The most ideal solution would be an update to a current forum software package, buuuuut... that would cost a truckload of time and money. Consider that you'd need to convert the existing database to the one used by the new software: twenty years of posts is a lot of data. Consider that this might require new server hardware. Consider that someone will need to pay for it. Consider that the Org likely has various features that might not be available in that new forum software -- e.g. the way the URLs are formed: now you need to have a solution in place so all old URLs continue to work. Etc etc etc.

.

The advantage would be that the Org would finally move with the times, might have nice features like e.g. being able to "like" a post, easy permalinks to posts, mobile friendly lay-out, a proper WYSIWYG editor,... But like I said: this would be a costly and time-consuming affair. A blog I visit regularly has recently upgraded to a current version of Wordpress after being stuck on an older one for years, and it took them months and several dedictaed people to get there, even though their previous version was only half a decade old or so. But then you have a lot of custom functionality that also needs to be ported, various features, millions of comments that needed to be moved to a new database,... And after launch (BTW the site was offline for about a day just for the move) they're still spending a lot of times fixing bugs that only turned up now their full audience is using the site. They've even encountered an issue that can only be fixed by Wordpress itself (due to the millions of comments in the database causing one query to max out the server resources!).

.

TBH I don't see that happening here. I doubt you'll get enough people willing to pay up $5 or $10 or $20 one time for such an endeavour, when it is absolutely unclear how much work (and thus money) would need to be involved.

I've offered several times to pitch in and try to get the Org updated, so have others. Still willing to pitch in.

I just came on site discussion to see if anyone else was having this problem, and see that I'm not alone. I've been having to log in each and every time, even though I click the "remember me". I haven't had to log in unless I've updated my system and deleted my cookies, so this is new.

I know it's late but thought I'd chime in with a me too. Never had to log in to the org after clicking remember me. Now I have to log in every time I close the page.

Can we not be rude about this? We don't pay a single penny to use this website and any maintenance issues are done for free by the owner I believe, so I'm gonna say it will be done at his discretion. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Do the admins have access to stats about this site? I wouldn't be surprised if this login issue is causing people to post a lot less because they find it too much of a hassle.

I tick that box every time I log in and still get logged out automatically after a short while, even when I stay on the org and don´t go to another open tab. Before that, I used to stay logged in all the time, even when my computer was turned off completely.

Nope, not fixed here either. And not staying logged in has messed up all the email alerts I am supposed to get because I have to be logged in in order for the system to know I have read each alert, if not then I won't get anymore alerts.

Good question. It's curious that this is still happening. It feels like Ben is just completely hands off at this point. And I know Mods can only do so much. They don't control the backend of the site like Ben can.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

If it's too expensive or something to fix, if it's not going to be fixed, maybe tell us so we get over it and accept it and move on? Just a suggestion.
