Okay. But I still don't understand how I can log out completely so I'm a Visitor.

Hmm -- well usually once you log out, and it says that the 'cookies are cleared', then you should show up as a visitor.

At least that's what happens when I go and log out.

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

After you recieve the message about your cookies being cleared, what do you click on? I've tried everything, and it still says "Good Evening/Afternoon, deathly721."

Hmm, that is weird ... I haven't had that happen to me before whenever I've logged off.

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

What I'm asking here is: what do you click on when you get to the "cookies are cleared" page?

Oh, I see -- I usually just close the web page. But for what you're going through, it sounds like there may be a login cookie that didn't get deleted or something. I could be wrong about it though.

By the way, just out of curiosity, what kind of browser are you using?

I'm using IE 6 and I'm having no problems logging out on it.

No, I think you're right. I tried doing what you said, and I was still logged on. I think one of my cookies is not working.

Hmm -- I see, well at least we may have narrowed the problem down to something. Hopefully a staff member can help you out somemore with this problem.

I hope that it gets straightened out soon. I'd hate to be having the same problem myself.

In my experience, "your cookies are cleared" means that you are logged out. It happens on the CosForums(Lite) skin, not on some others (Deathly Hallows UK for ex, doesn't do that), don't ask me why.

I had the same problem as you, even worse: I tried to log out, clicked on "Ok", but the whole darn thing froze, the browser shut down, and when I turned it back on, I was still logged on. It drove me nuts.

I called on my brother, who's a better geek than me, and he confessed himself defeated. This was on Internet Explorer. I've used Mozilla Firefox from then on and haven't had that problem again. Knock on wood.

Oops sorry - Hadn't read all the posts after the one I responded to. Have you tried changing browsers? It worked for me. If not, try disconnecting the modem completely and reconnecting it, or rebooting the whole sytem, cable modem included.

Of course, after having said that, I bet I won't be able to log out when I try to next time.

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

If all does not help to get back to visitor status, clear cookies and cache manually. Then you should be logged out completely.

For IE there must be something like 'Extras - Internetoptions'. Hope this helps.

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

For IE, at the top of the screen
Tools--->Internet Options--->delete files and delete cookies.
That should do it.

Ah, thanks! I had no English IE at hand and always seem to forget what the exact title of the menu is.

Funny, I have the opposite problem. I get logged out all the time. I post a message, go back to my e-mailbox to see what other responses I have, come back and show up as a guest. Even if I spend too long a time typing a post, once I'm finished I get the message "You are not logged in. Please log in to post your message." Then I log in and get "You may proceed now." (or words to that effect.)

Also, how do I get the "skin" I want (CoSForums [Lite]) to come up every time I log on? For some reason, when I re-open CosForums, I find myself on another skin with contrasting colors I find difficult to read. I don't seem to be able to make CoSForum [Lite] to stay on as the default skin.

When you log in, make sure you've clicked on "remember me"

Go to "magical me" --> edit options and scroll down to near the bottom, where you'll see a place to choose the skin that you want. Click on "save changes" at the bottom of the page, and the skin should be saved whenever you log in.

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

I just had one heck of a weird error on the forums. I was just looking at a page, when all of a sudden, a whole lot of webpages came up. Just of this site -- not adware or something.

Ran a Spybot: S&D scan on my computer and it didn't spot any problems. So I have no idea what it could be.

Anyone else having a similar problem?
