I don't have to keep signing back in

BUT I do get timed out when trying to navigate to pages within a thread at least 3 or 4 times during each session.

I circumvent getting the Error message by clicking Back if it takes longer than a certain number of seconds for the new page to open ........ experience over the last months has taught me that if this time is exceeded, I will get the Error message about 5 seconds later. So, I shorten my waiting time .............. while uttering silent swear words at GR.

This sort of thing very very rarely happens on other sites.

So why is it such a common event on GR?

JoyDean Report 16 Dec 2011 08:24 - twice before it would let me in :-| :-| :-|

Still having to sign in occasionally - why? :-|


JoyDean Report 27 Dec 2011 19:11

It is getting too silly for words. In the site, asked for help, received it, then gave help to another; clicked on another board - had to sign in.

I have no problem with any other site that I visit.
:-| :-| :-|

I never sign out so why have I just had to sign in? I was on here earlier today and didn't have to sign in it doesn't make sense.


AnninGlos Report 30 Dec 2011 12:58

And again today. What is up with this site that it can't survive over a holiday without problems. I am fed up with signing in when I have not logged out.


JoyDean Report 30 Dec 2011 14:30

Ditto what Ann said. And the site wanted to put "password" for my board name and a different password other than mine.

Rootschat, and other sites, have my time far more than this site that does not function properly. :-S


SylviaInCanada Report 31 Dec 2011 04:17

have had to log-in twice in succession today

yet I never log out



JoyDean Report 31 Dec 2011 12:58

Ditto what Sylvia said; or was it thrice? :-|


JoyDean Report 3 Jan 2012 14:35

Ditto :-|


JoyDean Report 7 Jan 2012 08:40

Had to sign in yesterday and today :-|


Cynthia Report 7 Jan 2012 08:51

I still have to sign in each and every day :-(


InspectorGreenPen Report 7 Jan 2012 10:15

I'll second that.

I've only had one recurring issue over the past three months and that was the timeout message when trying to sort and order my Surname Summary. That was resolved when GR introduced their performance tweaks a week or so ago.


SylviaInCanada Report 7 Jan 2012 23:40

are you two lucky? :-D


SylviaInCanada Report 8 Jan 2012 04:41

I am so very tired of this BUG

I have just had to log in

entered the details, hit enter


it took me to another page, "Please Sign In" :-S :-S

Entered details again

and finally got to Home Page

Why oh why does this happen ONLY on GR?

Why oh why does it happen SO OFTEN on GR.

It's getting to the point where I will soon be playing a game ....................

Count the reasons why I should leave this site vs the reasons why I should stay.

The balance pan is definitely leaning to the first of those choices.


AnninGlos Report 8 Jan 2012 09:12

Glad you said that Sylvia, me too. It has happened twice in the past week. Didn't mind once as I had actually cleared my cache so expected it. But why twice?
