I have resorted to staying logged in here.
You ask me what I thought about
Before we were lovers.
The answer is easy.
Before I met you
I didn't have anything to think about.

The only way I can stay logged in here is to login to my wordpress account. Otherwise, as soon as I close the window, I get logged out. As long as I stay logged in to wordpress, I'm good to go (something must be hinky there because several other sites wouldn't let me stay logged in until I did that either, and it was never a problem before).

I always stay logged in, always have. I assumed everyone else did, too, as long as they were using a private computer. Why go to the bother of logging out, then logging in again the next time?

Fortunately I haven't had the problems Shadowwalker mentioned. Yet. Knock on wood!

Yeah, normally I have certain sites (including this one) where I don't log out even when I leave - definitely saves time, esp with so many using captcha :roll: The only time I actually log out is when I do my pc maintenance stuff. That's why it was so frustrating to get logged out and not know if/when I'd be able to get back in again. I think pls mentioned wordpress at some point a few months ago, but DUH, I didn't think of it right away, of course. I don't know why they impact so many other sites, or their connection to this site, but at this point, if it works, I'll do it.

I had trouble getting in the day before yesterday, even though I hadn't logged out. I signed in again, using the same password, but later received an e-mail from WordPress confirming that I had changed my password!

You'd better check into that. If you didn't change it, someone may have hacked into it.

I just checked the box to keep me logged in.

Yeah, normally that would work but I kept checking it and still getting logged out. That's why I tried wordpress and now it works. :?

The only problem I face is that I erase my history every week.

Yeah, I clear out everything every few days so then I have to start all over again signing in to everything. I have thought about using that "master password" thing but I'm too paranoid (one password, one place protecting it - um, no...).
