    It really annoys me when I log in to MR to post a query or answer someone's question, and MR will usually log me out before I hit the *Submit New Thread* or *Preview* button :mad:

    Which means that I have to start form scratch if I haven't saved what I have typed. I find this incredibly annoying and most times just don't bother resubmitting my post :(

    Is anyone else annoyed by this?

    Is there any way they can lengthen the log-in time that one is classified by MR as idle before being automatically logged out?

    All opinions appreciated :)

    Be sure to click on the "Remember me" checkbox when you log in (I think it's "Remember me" - might be something similar).

    Of course, you need to have cookies enabled. You should then have numerous ".macrumors.com" cookies.

    My opinion is quite the opposite - I find MacRumors seemless to use. I've only ever had to log in once - everytime I go to MacRumors it auto-logs me on. Try clicking the "Remember Me" box, or whatever it might be called and you shouldn't have any problems - as long as you don't clear your cookies. :cool:
