I used to stay signed into this site pretty much indefinitely. Now I'm getting signed out daily. It's just a pain. Any idea why this might be happening? I couldn't find any settings pertaining to it.

In Site Settings > Log In, what is your cookie expiration set to?

I just looked at your Site Settings. Seems that your Log In Cookie Expiration is currently blank which is what's causing this. Set that to anywhere you want up to 1 Year and then hit Save at the bottom of the page. It should stop signing you out.

I just checked and mine was set to 2 weeks. It was logging me out daily. I logged in just yesterday and today I was logged out. I bumped it up to 1 year. Hopefully this will unglitch it. This started happening when I linked my Xbox tag for login. I unlinked it now hoping that will also help. Thanks guys!

After bumping to 1 year it has made no difference. I have to login daily. This is on two separate machines.

This is what I see? Maybe something isn't saving on the server end?

Is your browser set to delete cookies when you close it? If so, that could be another explanation.

Of course not. I haven't deleted my cookies in years. Every other site keeps me logged in. It's just this one.

I will also note that I've heard from friends with the same Windows/Browser as me that this is also happening to them. I think some people just haven't reported it maybe? The friends I've spoken with have said they haven't felt like reporting it.

We recently had an issue with older OS such as 8.1, Vista, etc logging people out on Chrome. That was fixed however. I'm logging this and sending it to the devs to be looked into.

In the meantime, could you try using TA on Firefox or a different browser and see if you have a similar issue?

I use Firefox and have had the same issue for a while now, so it's not a browser thing. It also does it to me both on my Windows 10 PC and my Android phone, so I don't think it's an OS thing either.

What method are you using to login? Just standard GT and password?
