Auto Login Not working...

Postby Daistallia 2104 » Wed Jun 24, 2009 10:22 am

Set this nation to auto login a while back. Worked for a while but hasn't done so for a couple weeks....

Autologin cookies don't last forever (a year, I think). Try going to Settings, ensure that "Log Me In Automatically" is checked, and click "Update." That should re-set your autologin cookie.

No, I think they're definitely broken. I've had the same problem for roughly the same length of time. I'm logged out of both the game and the forum at random intervals. Occasionally, without logging back in, I'll refresh the page and be logged back in again. It's very bizarre.

I would like to investigate, but it's pretty tough to find a problem that occurs at random intervals. If you detect any pattern, please let me know.

Re did it and it's auto logging on now, but it had only ben a couple weeks (about a month total) that I'd set it to auto login.

Thanks. There are quite a few different ways to lose your cookies (so to speak), so I won't worry about it unless it reoccurs. Please let me know if that happens.

:) Will do.

(Nice to see such responsiveness, BTW!)

Just got randomly bumped from the forums and logged out again.

Yeah, I've been trying to keep a log of when it occurs. At the moment it seems completely random - sometimes I'm logged out even while browsing the forums, sometimes, after being logged out (and without bothering to log back in) I'll be spontaneously logged back in. The most common time for log out seems to be if I don't visit the game for about 30 minutes, but then, sometimes it'll remain logged in overnight. It's very strange.

And just had it happen again - just cruising along and BOOM - dumped out...

Somtimes when I log into this nation, my new one, I'll only be on for like 5 seconds, I go to a new screen, and I'm re-logged in as my main.

Also this nation will randomly log out too. In the same boat.

It seems to log me out if I rapidly change screens. Like only staying on one for like less than 5 seconds. And often right after I post on forum.

A few hours ago, I was logged in as this nation, popped to The North Pacific offsite forum for a few minutes, and when I returned to NS, I was logged on as a different nation (that nation had auto-login) and I couldn't have been gone more than 5-10 minutes.
