Staying Logged In
Posted by modelcarjr on Friday, February 26, 2016 9:59 AM

For years, I have been able to stay logged in by simply closing the website. In the last few days, I have had to log in every time even though I have checked "keep me logged in".  I have sent a message to customer service and they may reply but in the meantime, does anyone have an idea of why this might be happening? I did have a power outage this week due to wind and I tried to renew my subscription using the "Renew" line above with no luck and had to call. Not sure if either one of these events could have changed anything in my computer. I am not a geek so most of these computer things that just happen bewilder me. Thanks! Bang Head

I had a power outage Wednesday and I had to login again, however, I only had to do this once and have stayed logged in.  Sorry, I can't help with your issue.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

JR, I have always stayed logged in too but in the last few days I have to log in every time I look around here.  I have had no power outages.  Hope they fix this, There has been more than one thing that makes it hard for me to come back here and this is just another.  It will get fixed or I guess I will just stay logged out.

To Err is human, to blame it on someone else shows management potential.

Same here. Jim Haught posted in Scale Auto Announcements above regarding this issue. Shouldn't be a big deal. (FLWLaugh)

So I suppose I should pretend that I forgot my password (there is no option to reset the password) and set a new password with a number in it, then click on remember my password so that next time this happens I really will have forgotten my password! Yeah - that it!  That makes a lot of sense!

I know someone will suggest I write down the new password and store it somewhere I can find it next time this happens. Perhaps on a list in a safe with a combination that I tuck away in another safe, with a combination.... I don't write down any passwords as I am afraid someone will break in, steal my passwords, then steal my identity and when I wake up in the morning I will have a blank where my face used to be......My point is this - all this is unnecessary! And thanks, Jim, for the heads up!

JR, I was having the same problem as you, using Microsoft Edge. I switched my web browser to Mozilla Firefox yesterday, and have stayed logged in using my usual password  despite closing my browser several times.

 Just an FYI, Frank

JR ....and the worst part you'll be credited with all the"Crappy" builds they post. Your reputation will be tarnished. Smile, Wink & Grin

The question I have is how do you "Reset Your Password"?

I don't know but just as mysteriously as I was logged out each time I closed for several days, now I am staying logged in. I didn't change my password or do anything to solve the issue on my side and I haven't received a response to my customer service inquiry. I'm in the "Twilight Zone"! SighBlindfoldHmm

I've had to log in 4 times today, this problem doesn't seem to be going away
