I'm used to phpBB having a setting to keep me logged in "forever", but I'm not seeing anywhere here to enable that. Am I blind?

On the login page there's a "Remember Me" checkbox. This is set to never expire, so you should not be logged out.

Ok, I thought that might be the case. Something with internet settings on this end must be causing me to get logged out. Work PC... I shouldn't complain too much.

I've been getting logged out too if I check back later/another day when I didn't use to. It's no biggy, especially when I have a password manager autofill for certain websites.

same "remember me" hasn't been remembering me for a few days now. I assumed it was something on my end but maybe not....?

I think it is related to our change to SSL. Since the cookies are now only send to secured connections, you are no longer logged in if browsing to http://www.nwo-uncensored.com. I also noticed that using the non-secured version of the site will invalidate your whole session, even on the SSL "side".

Meaning if you log in, then re-enter the site using an unsecured URL you'll stay logged out even if you switch back to SSL afterwards. The quick workaround is to adjust your bookmarks / generally not using the http-version any longer. We will probably also simply reroute all requests to https, which should get rid of the issue entirely.

We are now rerouting all http requests to https. If you still experience logouts please contact us and if possible provide the last page or thread you visited before the logout.
