Why can I not log on/reply to posts!

I'm getting really frustrated with the forum.
I try to log on so I can write replies start new trheads etc, but the forum just keeps going round in circles with the log in screen appearing when I try to post! Even though i just signed in!
To write this post it's taken me about 10 attempts to log on before finally being allowerd to post!

Is it just me and the forum is trying to tell me something or do others have similar problems trying to log on to post.
It's XP laptop running firefox by the way.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Oh dear! Can't help much other than to say that I'm running XP and Firefox and it works OK! Hope you get it sorted before you eventually give up!

No problems here - so sounds like it might be at your end?

Try clicking this link which will force your ribnet cookies to expire. When you login again hopefully it will do a better job of remembering you.

If it keeps happening then if you can try a different PC or iphone/android app - this will help the techies identify a possibile problem. Obviously if it is really bad you may not be able to get logged back in at all to tell us so - but you should still be able to send the Admins a message with this link: RIBnet Forums - Contact Us

Same thing was happening with mine (mac with safari).

It works fine now but I have to tick the remember me box to the right of the login.

Yes, without the "Remember me" box checked, you get bumped off again.

Tricky at work....

Provided you remember to log out you can use "remember me" so you don't get bumped mid-session. Any help?

No problems here also XP and Firefox

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
