My internet browser has asked me twice this afternoon to re-type in my username and password after i had already logged in to the forum. Is there a reason why it does this?

Hi Phil,

No worries, it's an inbuilt cookie based feature that times you out after 15 minutes inactivity on the forum. It signs you out automatically and changes your status back to a guest user. This comes in handy if you forget to logout or your browser takes you elsewhere on the internet.

You are correct, you were online for around an hour and timed out twice.
