Getting Logged Out?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Fri Jan 03, 2020 5:38 pm

SHORT: If you're getting logged out at random times, subscribe to issue #192.

Long: we're still troubleshooting several outstanding issues with long-term support for our very old forum software, but just today discovered new information we feel could potentially lead to the discovery of the cause of perhaps the most annoying bug of all time, getting spontaneously logged out from the site. We're investigating now and will update this thread as we learn more.

In the meantime, you can help us track it down by reporting your experience in this thread.

What happens?
When browsing the site, users who have previously logged in successfully and navigated the site otherwise without issue will spontaneously be logged out of the site, resulting in them having to log back in again (a tedious and undesirable action). Generally this seems to escalate in frequency the more tabs or devices you use to access RPG, but reports vary widely in the frequency and consistency of the problem.

How to Help
Next time you get logged out, reply to this thread with the following information:
Code: Select all
[b]1. What specific action caused your logout?[/b]
Your words here.  Include instructions on what you did, all the way up to getting logged out.

[b]2. What browser and operating system?[/b]
e.g., Chrome / Firefox, Windows / Mac / Linux... versions...

With any luck, your message will help us track down the bug, as it might include a detail we can replicate or otherwise corroborate while we troubleshoot the ancient, soon-to-be-replaced innards of the storytelling machine.

As frustrating as this is has been, let's work together to put an end to this madness once and for all.
