    Why do we have to log in again every time?

  • #2
    Possibly you need to clear the cookies on your browser?

    That usually seems to be the problem - what's your operating system and browser?

      I think the DOS attacks are back?

        So being as most folks seem, like me, to be able to automatically log in to SCI as soon as clicking on the site is done I then this suggests an individual's browser is more likely the issue.

          I'm on a Mac using Safari and, as Wet Coast said, after a few seconds of Cloudfare checking I'm logged in...no issues.

            my win7 IE laptops work fine, although I do have to wait to be vetted most times unless I've just been in there.

              How do I do that?

                I think it depends on your OS, but don't clear them all (unless you want to lose passwords and preferences etc).

                Personally this login stuff is so minor I just put up with it. SCI is a great place, a tiny bit of hassle is OK. I think it is what people call a first world problem

                  think that the only option in windows is to clear all cookies. (don't confuse me with being a computer expert- I'm an analog/rf engineer. I just use the dumb things.)
                  usually in my exper. that mostly just means that you have to re-enter all your passwords for your various login sites when you visit them the next time.
                  sometimes you have to do it, sometimes you don't. SCI randomly works great with a semi-short entrance delay, other times (such as today) it makes you go back and refresh to complete every post. p.i.t.b. but you can get it done.

                    Pain in the back?

                    I was having that problem a while back, as were others; one way to ensure your eloquent entry isn't going to disappear into the ether is to remember to block/copy the entirety of your Reply before you hit Submit - that way, even if it hasn't successfully made it to SCI, it's still 'in your mouse' waiting to be pasted.

                    I also recall NR suggesting hitting the back arrow, to go retrieve your pearls of wisdom, and that seemed to work well too. These days I'm having no problems, but really that's between me and my psychiatrist.

                      back arrow and F5 works but it seems unnecessary to me. once you're vetted, whiskey tango foxtrot, oscar?
                      it just did it to me again.


                      eloquent pearls, though? Shirley, Paul you jest- or you're much too kind- can't tell. if not, thanks though- but I'm just an overly wordy science guy.


                      how' the weather out there- I miss the webcam pics!

                        I always try to give credit where it's due ...

                        Meanwhile, going back to the subject at hand, I suspect that the geeks who make sites like this (or not like this at all) are increasingly challenged by the task. If you think about it, the way we're all using the net is increasingly different; and not just because of the operating systems (either some version of Windows or Mac) but also the way that it gets accessed which for many these days means interacting by phone. Hell, there are people reading this who are probably trying to drive a car at the same time (morons are everywhere, we know this).

                        So trying to make it all run nicely for everybody - including those who never do anything to understand and maintain their computers, or their cars, or their phones - may be an impossible dream. We all just gotta do our best, I reckon. Sometimes I'm as confused as anyone ...
