    Dennis -

    This is a known problem. They need to reset the refresh timer on this. But, someone will take care of it at some point. BTW...I go directly to the forum, not going through the homepage. I'm remember each time I come back there.

    I have experienced this same problem for some time now, even before the new site came up. Have also had problems purchasing superstakes tickets as the site fails to authenticate my purchase.

    There has been some credit card verification issues and the login issue has been reported. There was a Board Meeting today...my guess is this was all discussed at length! Look for some changes next week.

    Hi Dennis, sometimes it's the browser/page cookies that are retained and not changed to a new version of browser/page cookies when an event like we just had goes on. I worked it so I could stay logged on through the last event and when I wanted "out" and "back in" I had to do some 'messin 'round. I don't know if that helps you, but it is an example. Gary

    I have to log on every time time I want to go on the forum, for whatevver reason it won't retain my name and password. That seems to be the only problem that I am havaing with the new site. Thanks.

    Glad that's the only problem!! I understand there's some recent attempts to correct this...hopefully it will be resolved soon. Thanks for checking back.

    Well, Dennis, you're the lucky one! It doesn't remember the settings on the homepage or FM for me!

    I have to log on to the home page and the forum with my user name and password each time even though I check the remember me box. It's been that way ever since the work was done on the website. Before that all I had to do was click the log in feature and did not have to type in my suer name or password. Also the info on the forum while it was down was that the first time that you logged in after the new website was up and running that you would be sent a new password after logging in with your member number. I never did receive one.

    lagator -

    Yup, the "remember me" feature still doesn't work consistently. AFAIK, the office is pursuing it but obviously not making much progress.

    Things got a little scrambled before the forum went down and, yes, the plan was to email everyone a new password. While the forum/website was being worked on, they decided to use member names and numbers to let you back onto the forum. That information was displayed to you if you came to the forum for the first time once the forum was back up. Once you logged in with those instructions, you should change your password to something more secure rather than the default.

    All I can say is, hang in there, things are being worked on...albeit rather slowly.

    Kurt,

    For the past few months I have not been on the forum- if something isn't working on the internet, I just ignore it.

    Tonight I tried to access the Flea Market.

    I was looking at K bikes. I went to that subforum then specified that I wanted to look at 40 listings per page instead of 10 (would have covered all since there are 36 total). After I click on it it brings me to the R bike listing. Did it 3 times so that I wasn't making a mistake- sent me to R bikes 3 times.

    NOT good. The website isn't headed in a good direction. IMHO.
