I keep getting logged out, is this happening to anybody else?
Sometimes it is every few minutes...not happening on any site but this one. Hmmmm.....
I have reported this problem to the site technicians and I am awaiting an answer. I did put a post here to inform you all, however, my post appears to have gone astray.
Thanks for pointing this out. We added a new server to SpanishDict on Friday to help make the site run faster (It's been having a few slowdowns lately). There was a bug related to the new server that was causing people to get logged out sporadically, but I think it has now been fixed. Hopefully you will now be able to enjoy and faster site--and not getting logged out. Reply to this post if the problem resurfaces.
At the moment, this is a very select club.
Well, I wasn't eager to join this exclusive club, but here I am anyways! It just happened to me twice in five minutes.
Okay make that thrice in six minutes.
I was using a different computer for most of the day, but on this one it kicked me off.
I'm on: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/2009101601 Firefox/3.0.15 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
And I have always had the 'remember me' box checked. It didn't seem to make a difference. Señor Queso thought it might.
Also, I haven't changed anything on this computer (hardware/software) in the last few weeks.
post script: Make that 4 times. grrrrr. Just as I clicked 'Respuesta' I was on the outside looking in. Fortunately I was able to 'go back' and copy text above into Notepad to save it while I logged back on.
I left my mouse on top of the keyboard and its droppings went down into the spaces between the letters. Do you think this caused the problem?
If you are willing to try this, it should improve your overall browser speed and have fewer, if any, timeouts.
Start/Run/type regedit and then click ok
You are now in the Registry Editor
On the left hand side click the expand (+) button next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER expand (+) Software expand (+) Microsoft expand (+) Windows and then left click on Internet Settings folder icon
Now on the right hand side there are two MaxConnections... Threads Right click on each and select Modify select Decimal, log the original value for your records and enter a value of 10.
WARNING!!! Do not change anything else unless directed. These settings are very important to your systems functionality. This one is safe.
Ok now close Registry Editor and Reboot
Your browser is designed to comply with Hyper Text Protocol, which normally only draws 2 streams from a web server at any given time. You have now increased it to 10 streams because your web browser is capable of using more. Your browsing experience will be quicker and more stable.
Among other things, I am a computer systems analyst. I have knowledge and experience making advanced data changes.
Grrrrrrrrr... this is the FOURTH time I've tried to submit this post. :( It's like the "submit" button is now the "logout" button :(
Add me to the club...
An additional problem: on my second attempt to post this, Google Chrome told me the web page was unavailable. It can't find spanishdict at all now (I did a hard refresh, then closed and reopened the browser. No dice). I can get here with IE, but Chrome can't see the site at all. :(
It seems that someone is playing with a timeout parameter...
I have been logged off a several times...
Sign me up!
It is happening to me. I posted this same question becuase I hadn't seen yours yet.
I have just flagged the thread. This is the first time I do this. I hope this to be correct and not to put my foot in it.
In Spanish, it is said "meter la pata".
Yeah, this is happening to me too. Its really irritating me... about every 2-3 minutes of inactivity, I get logged out. I also have remember me checked, and my computer remembers my user-name and password. I click on the login button, and all my information is already there, but, its still an issue when I write a LONG post, and it logs me out...
I am using Firefox by the way. I think its the most up-to-date version.
EDIT: Oh look, I got logged out writing this...
If you are a current user, please fill in your username and password. If you are a new user, please input all of the requested information.
I guess it is LESS than every 2-3 minutes of inactivity. :(
I have just had a message from the technicians that they are aware of the problem and are trying to resolve it at present. If you look below you can see how hard they are working.
I have also sent Christopher a link to this thread so he can see what is happening.
same with me every time i answer a question i get logged out
check one two, am I signed in?
