    That's fine. Use somthing like qolelis1 or whatever and carry on posting in this thread. We do manual registration so I'll look out for it.

    Theoretically, (I'm sure Al will confirm yes or no), it should be possible to merge the original account into the new and then change the name back to qolelis so nothing is lost. Anyway, let's see if a new acount does the trick first.

    Done.

    That would be nice.

    Edit:
    ...unless merging the two accounts also means that whatever was wrong with the old account also gets merged into the new account!? I don't know how likely that scenario is -- or even how likely it is that the new account will work, but there's a small chance for both, I guess. The latter is at least something that hasn't been tried yet.

    Test 1

    Test 1: So far so good.

    If this works, it will probably take a couple of days to make sure that it is in fact working and not just being luck. If it doesn't work, I will probably get logged out pretty soon.

    Fingers crossed...

    Test 2: I was going to go with Gallivantez, but qolelis1 works too.

    Test 3

    Test 3: Nope, I'm still being logged out.

    I logged in, visited this thread, and immediately got logged out.

    Test 6 (from old account).

    Test 7 (from old account): Interestingly enough, after having logged in a second time, the login seems to actually stick (from both accounts).

    Right at this moment, I'm having the pattern of logging in a first time, visiting this thread, getting logged out, logging in a second time, and then it sticks.

    Yup, me too.

    Test 8: hmmm, I might be on to something... maybe...

    Test 9: I'm pretty sure I finally know what's going on now:
    I usually type in "ttlg.com/forums" (manually in the address bar (without "www")) when visiting and logging in. Logging in works, but as soon as I visit a thread, I am redirected to www.ttlg.com[...], which apparently is considered not the same as "ttlg.com", so something somewhere sees me as being logged out. The second time I log in, I am already at "www.ttlg.com", so the login sticks when visiting a thread. If I type in "www.ttlg.com" from the start, everything works. This has been consistent now for the last couple of tries (as well as the opposite), so I'm pretty sure this is it, but, damn, that took a while to figure out.

    Edit:
    ...and if I remove "www." afterwards, I am again shown as being logged in.

  13. #38
    Test 10: trying from several different browsers and adding or removing "www." before or after having logged in (or switching back and forth while being logged in) confirms this, so now we at least know what's causing the problem on my side.

    Trying with a new account wasn't a waste, though, because otherwise I might not have kept on testing, and seeing things from a new angle helped. Dare I tempt fate and suggest that the new account can now be removed!?

    Edit:
    I mean, if it works even in Edge, then we know it's okay... Anyway, moving on with life.

    I thought there was a redirect in place to enforce the "www" but clearly not. I've now ensured you'll only be able to access the forums via the full domain name which should prevent it occurring in future for you or anyone else visiting the shortened URL. The test account has been removed as it sounds like the problem has been clearly identified

    Yup, now I'm redirected to www from the start, and everything works (knock on wood).

    That's not what "Knock on wood" means, nickie!

    On the other hand, it's also not what it not means.

    It's just that when it comes to computer systems I have learned that things can seem to work, but then later, the malaphorical fat lady returns to bite you in your proverbial behind, although in this case, with Al_B's proper rocket surgery, it's probably safe to to call it a happy ending -- albeit cautiously.

    Depends on what kind wood we are talking about.

    This kind of wood, I think.

    Just to be clear (since you guys seemingly never get tired of giggling about sexual innuendo ):
    "Knock on wood": said in order to prevent a confident statement from bringing bad luck.
    Not in the superstitious way, though, but the figurative.

    Sorry qolesis for my well documented history of posting and/or giggling about sexual innuendo. Won't happen again.

    Damn it, dienstag, I was hoping you would continue; that way I could have shouted "Timbeeeeer!" without it looking out of place.

    Hmm, I've occasionally followed links people have sent me without the 'www' in the past, and generally been annoyed by ending up viewing the forums without being logged in. It never occurred to me that this odd habit of some people leaving out the www could be causing your issue.

    I'm curious how people even started doing that? If you're really lazy about the extra keypresses, typing ttlg.com is still longer than ttlg{ctrl+return}?

    Some do it, others don't. *shrugs*
