So, I’m taking my morning cruise thru LJ’s, and go to the Non-Shop Talk area where I see that I have to be signed in to post a reply. Say What? I get signed in automatically when I click on Lumberjocks.

I clicked the back button, picked a topic, scrolled down, and could have posted. Repeated the process for 3-4 other topics with the same result.

I went back to Non-Shop Talk, picked 3-4 topics, and would have needed to sign in to reply.

So, what’s this about? Is this a random “glitch”, or an additional hurdle to appease those who don’t like the non-woodworking topics?

have you cleared your history/cookies in your browser recently? That would do it. I haven’t had the same issue that you’re describing.

Personally I do not even look at “non-shop talks’. I like LJ to talk about wood working , not politics, sex or religions.
In fact I believe that all these “non-shop talks” should be prohibited on LJ.
If one wants to rant about these subjects, use a different forum, LJ is not the place for that.

The only time I have to sign in again is if I was using the site on another computer. You can only be signed in from one PC at a time. Otherwise, I am always signed in…

Well, clearing history seems to have fixed the problem – although I’m not sure why. – lol There was one address in Austrailia that may have been the problem.

Thanks for the ideas – except for Bert who decided that resolution of a specific problem required yet another philosophical statement decrying the very existence of non-shop topics. – lol

I haven’t had to sign in for about 3 years.
Until a coupla days ago when, suddenly, the site looked different because, for some bizarre reason, I wasn’t signed in. I presumed they’d just changed a small site thing, but perhaps it was just a christmas gremlin (christmas as in christmas season, late decemberness, no religiosity intended)

Actually I have had the same issue. Only mine wasn’t looking at the forum but projects. I started using Chrome instead of explorer (which I like better) and just chocked it up to that.

So long story short … You aren’t crazy. It is doing it to me from time to time as well…

1. What Sawkerf said in response to what Bert said. NO …LOL.. A FEW Individuals on here have almost destroyed “Non-Shop” talk. by all their Political BS and a few other “SEE How Smart I Am!” Postings. There is a LOT more in there than just that. Have a look. You Might be surprized.

2. If you DON’T clean out Your Computer once and a while, a “Cookie” will stay in there that keeps you Signed In. Problem is Your Computer will also retain EVERY Cookie, usually more than one, (about 5 for this site) for EVERY site you’ve visited, along with 100’s of “Temp” files, “dll files”, “index.dat” files (HUGE), “Memory dumps”, “log files”, “Google everything” and a few more.

MS or IE “Delete Cache” “Delete Browsing History” “Disc Clean Up” won’t even touch them. Their a JOKE. All that STUFF in brackets above? THAT’S what JAMS UP Your Computer!!

That’s the reason I have a “Window Cleaner” (Eusing, FREE) I run it about every second day and it grabs a TON of STUFF! Yes. When I come here I can Browse but I’m NOT signed in. So I “Sign In” which takes all of 20 seconds.

In Reply to your Original Concern Sawkerf. I’ve not had that happen to me. But I’m getting a Little Fed Up with the 404 errors I’ve been getting and the site is bogging down again. To say nothing of the fact that the galleries still aren’t working.

That’s enough for now, I guess …LOL…
