Hi all,

 

I searched through this support forum and all through "My Settings" but could not find an answer.  Every time I log into DBStalk, it shows me as being Offline and "Last Active - Private".

 

I have no idea why it is doing that and I could not find a place to change it.  I can log out and log back in and I will be active until the next time I come back to DBStalk.

 

Can anyone show me how to change that?

 

Thanks!

There should be a check box when you log in allowing you to "sign in anonymously". Unselect that box.

I have tried that.  Every time I come back, unless I log out and log back in, it still shows me as offline.   I have the choice selected to remember me, so I don't usually log in every visit.  I just open DBSTalk and I am already logged in.  Could that be the issue?

If you don't log in each visit the system just remembers your last log in. (It isn't bad to stay logged in forever ... I rarely log out.)

 

I see what you are doing ... so it is being logged somewhere.

Hmmmm... so one of my devices is leaving me at private.  Because even after I log out and log back in and deliberately don't choose "anonymous", the next time I come back, I am anonymous again!  Very strange.

I figured I would post in this thread instead of starting a new one, is the "Sign in anonymously" check box missing for anyone else when logging in?

I checked IE, Chrome and Safari mobile and they are all missing the check box.

It's not you, we have been making some changes with the settings.  Not sure what the end result will be with the anonymous login.

 

Thanks.
