Has anyone else been experiencing un-requested logging out? This has just happened to me twice, v frustrating the first time having just written a long answer to someone's translation post with lots of refs etc...

No cut-out with internet connection, so it's not that.

A mystery Oct 3, 2010

Yes, I also have experienced the same thing, except that I wasn't writing a long answer to someone's post. I was logged in till the day before, and the next morning when I woke up and accessed Proz, I was automatically logged out. And I swear that I didn't log out the night before, since I always keep myself logged in. Maybe Proz's system is built that way, like any other website, like Yahoo mail. Even if you access Yahoo mail everyday and have your user ID and your password remembered, after a few weeks, they ask you for your password to log in just to make sure that the same person who owns the account is accessing.

Security & session policy Oct 3, 2010

AFAIK, this is related to security issues and web server session configurations that differs from web service to another.

Disconnection Oct 3, 2010

The only times I become disconnected from Proz normally are when someone uses a computer at work (I'm connected on all of them) and cleans it, thus logging me out. Otherwise, I can never remember becoming disconnected except on those occasions.
