Why do I keep getting logged out?

Twice in the last hour I have been logged out of myLot while trying to respond to a discussion. Then I have to log back in and I lose what I have just typed. Is this happening to anyone else or just me?

It's happening to me today. Just another day on mylot i guess. A bit annoying, but not to bad.

This just happened to me for the first time today! It's so annoying! I think it has something to do with the changes and new look of MyLot. I really hope they fix it soon!

I think they were making changes to the system on Friday and everyone had issues with staying logged into MyLot. Or, so I've heard! I hope they have fixed it by now. I'm using Firefox and have not had any problems with it so far. Fingers crossed!

I think I saw a post the other day about someone having problems with being logged out every so often. However I haven't had any problems and I'm wondering why other people are having them. I guess it may have something to do with the upgrades they've been working on but I really do not know.

I wasn't having this problem 5 months ago when you posted this discussion but I am now. It's just been a recent thing but it's getting very annoying to sign in again when you try posting a discussion or response just 5 minutes after your last one. Some of the discussions that linked to my discussion have recommended to tick the remember me box on log in but I don't have that option now. Instead I have a box asking if this is a public computer, but it isn't, so I feel like I'm signing in every 5 to 10 minutes when I used to stay logged in for at least 30 minutes or more.

My box turned into a public computer box too. I don't ever log out of myLot, so since I stopped having the problem I stay logged in until I clear my cookies on my computer.

I clear my cookies on a pretty regular basis but I had "protected" the Mylot.com cookie in my cleaner. After getting your reply I removed it, then re-protected it again so we'll see if that works.

I have been logged out before and found myself logged in as someone else who uses the same computer. That has been irritating.
