New Site


Clapton is God

Having logged in to the new site yesterday and simply closed my browser when I'd finished I'm rather surprised to find that I'm still logged in today.

With the 'old' site, closing my browser meant I was automatically logged out.

Why the change (which I don't like)?

There used to be a tick box for staying logged in. I guess you did not have this ticked.

That now seems to have gone and everyone is automatically kept logged in unless you clear your cookies.

Just log out when you are finished.

And another thing ......

It seems that I now receive an e-mail whenever someone replies to my threads.

There used to be an option to opt out of that. Where is that option in the new site?

And, whilst I'm on the subject - the new site is painfully slow - probably not helped by so many members now being PERMANENTLY logged in.

"the new site is painfully slow"

Really? That's not my experience - it's zipping along on my machines.

We're dealing with the email thing.

I suggest you take a look at the other threads about the site - you'll probably find we've already covered the ground.

"the new site is painfully slow. Really?"

Yes, really. I wouldn't have made the comment if that wasn't my experience. You haven't addressed the point I make about members being permanently (and unnecessarily) logged in.

"I wouldn't have made the comment if that wasn't my experience."

I appreciate that, but I was giving you my experience. The site runs fast on all my machines, and - so far - I have no reports of slow running from anyone else.

We're getting error messages, but that's down to teething problems, and will be resolved as soon as possible.

The login situation is also something we'll address very soon. Large numbers of people like being logged in automatically, but I appreciate that others - including you -don't. You're not "permanently logged in" of course, Your browser does it automatically each time you come to the site

If you are using IE9 and Tracking Protection then try disabling the sites in the list. Restart IE and this site runs a lot faster.

Zipping along here on internet explorere and firefox. Except for the few error pages it has been very good the last couple of days.
