Log out

Today I am finding that I am being logged out without me logging out! Frustrating as I have to log back in to add comments or observations!
Any thoughts on this problem please?

New "location"

I am not having problems with the new site, although at first I was stuck because I could not for the life of me remember my password (it's encrypted on another PC) - I rely on Firefox to remember it for me....

We will investigate

There have been a few changes recently as we're about to launch the community features. I'll ask the team to check this issue out and get back to you.

New website address (URL)

Yes, the website address was changed last Friday - apologies for not announcing this in advance, it caught me on the hop and I was on leave on the day! There is now an announcement in the news pages:

and further details of this and other updates are at:

The new address is likely to cause users to have to re-enter their iSpot password when logging on for the first time since the change.

problem solved

That is exactly what happened. I did have to log on again once, but since then it's back to normal.

p.s. what I like about the forum posts is that the first draft only gives the 'preview' option, so that I cannot click 'Save' too soon. Quite useful if working on a tablet where finger-slips are easier to make. Comments and ID posts could be like that too...
