    I have to sign in every time I exit USMB and return. What is going on? Is anyone else having this same problem? How do I resolve it?

    I think everyone has to sign-in once they exit the site, in order to get back in.

    I do it that way. If I didn't, it would log me out if I visit another web page, on another site. It took me a week or so to figure it out when I first joined.

    Are you sure you're you today? There was an invasion last night and you might no longer be you.

    I have had the same problem even with checking the stay logged on box. And the first time I logged on today the active topics were in Chinese. The rest of the page was in English.

    I was here early this morning and this site had spam threads in Chinese and my phone for awhile was putting all the ads in Chinese, so FYI.

    Also other posters were complaining they were being logged out and had to log back in.

    Tomorrow for take out can we have Italian or French instead of the usual Chinese or Russian spam?

    I haven't had that problem. The Chinese thing was an eye opener this morning, though

    It was spammers, nothing more. We get spammers all the time, every day. These were just looking to sell fake diplomas to unsuspecting, non-Chinese reading people. :19:

    If you get any of the amazon gift card popups, I'd appreciate it if you'd PM me a screen shot of it with the link it redirects you to. Admin has been blocking them and when doing so (updating the software), it's probably causing all of us to have to sign in again.

    It's been happening since last night. I have never intentionally signed out in over five years but had to "sign in" yesterday and again today.
