So now we are logged out automatically for "security purposes" just like the Dev site and have to get redirected and log in again just to answer something here. Now you've made the job of all of us volunteers more difficult. Terrific.
But I earned 11 badges yesterday, so it's all even I guess.
Another troubling feature is not being able to delete our posts. Not acceptable, Roku.
I'm also annoyed to no end about being logged out of the development account every 5 minutes even while I'm working. It's just short of completely p*ssing me off but because my browswer populates the login fields automatically I hang in there, hoping, wishing... keep calm oh, developer, even though it seems nobody at Roku is reading and acting on these complaints, I think one of the more caring workers will recall reading this and remember it while he's clashing with the boss at the snack machine or at the urinal. You can do it, man. Be brave.
Ghost town. The new board format will create a ghost town and chase away their community. It is already occuring notice the lack of new topics? Listen closely you can hear the crickets and someone playing a sad song on the banjo.
If you are getting logged off in a matter of minutes, it's something with your browser. Perhaps some plug-in. I've gone over 8 hours without having to log back in, as long as the browser remains open. You close the browser, you have to log back in. No different than many other web sites I've used over the years. Virtually all of my work sites are like this, and a couple of public forums that I use also will not carry a login over a closed browser session.
It's just something we have to accept with all the stupid bots and spammers that try to hack in.
Hi Jeff. There is no "keep me logged in" function like the old forum had. I wish there were. There's a "remember me" box, but that doesn't keep you logged in. It's just supposed to remember your login name. But that doesn't appear to work either.
I'm using Chrome as well, both on my home and my work computer. I go all day without requiring a new login, unless I close all Chrome browser tabs.
I think the RokuTV discussions should be unified with Community Discussions. Discussions are Discussions.
