I just close my laptop. I don't shut down anything.
It naps.

If I did that, I couldn't do other work.

I get stuck in a loop sometimes where it suddenly decides I need to sign in when I am using my android phone. So I do and it neatly presents the exact same log on page over and over. Dropping off the forum and clearing cookies solves it.

I also think you should make sure your browser doesn't need to be updated. I find that when my internet speed slows I can also have elements that will not load on webpages especially when there is some obnoxious ad that is trying to use all my bandwidth...Also check that you don't have any unwanted browser add ons or extensions..

I cleared the cache and no difference and I have no Internet on my phone.

Could not sign on today with several tries, until now.

That is interesting because it has shown me as signed on time and again lately, when I was not on, and could not get on!!

Someone else had the same problem as me not being able to sign on at the same times apparently, so it appears to be a problem with their website. I think they know that because they often seem to fix it when I write them but they never answer me. Their site has had some of the same problems for years. I know they had some from the last owner.

Cookies are different than the cache.
If you are on android at your home screen click the 3 little dots at the upper right. Click on history, click on clear browser history. You can unclick browsing history if you wish but make sure to leave cookies selected., If it worked fine before you can roll back to an earlier date by clicking advanced at the top. But I usually just kill it all and re log on all sites.

This site is using totally different software from when Jeff owned it. He used the Simple Machines LLC software. Social Knowledge uses vBulletin software.

When I tried to register in probably 2009, I could not. You were not on then that I recall, certainly not a moderator. I was reading when Jeff owned it. I know that I was trying to get on when he owned it because he was one big reason that we wanted an Escape --- what he had to say about them. (Ironically, he then bought an Airstream, I understand?!) Maybe you and others could register back then but I and others could not.

I could not register and was told time and again that my e-mail was spam. I did not get registered for many months and maybe up to a year --- then using that same e-mail for several years. In the last couple of years, someone said that he had the same message that his e-mail was spam being sent to him and he could not register. So looks like the same problem to me. Maybe somehow both systems had the same problem.

Cathy, you seem to want not to believe almost everyone else, in that you believe the problem lies in the site software and not something particular to your system. This will severely restrict your hopes in finding a solution.

Maybe try another device. I have no problem on my desktop or laptop PC, my phone, or my wife's tablet.

How did Pat have the same problems? It is nice that you do not. I only use one device and I believe Pat uses something else. The website also showed me signed on when I was not. How is that not their site?

More than one device can have problems. The VAST majority do not. Seriously trying to help here so you can trouble shoot , but that does not seem like what you are actually looking for. You seem to want to believe the trouble lies elsewhere. Have you talked to the side tech people?

Time for another cerveza.

I appreciate the comments to try clearing this or that and do this or that --- which I have used and done. And still had the same thing happen.

As I said, I have written the admins several times and they never answer.

They obviously have something wrong on the site when I am shown as signed in when I am not. And can't get on. I don't take that to be anything to do with my device.

Where's Jasper??

I haven't read this whole thread, but have you tried a different browser? I know for instance, Bing and Facebook often don't play well together.

I'm confused here. How do you know that you're signed on when you can't get on?

And maybe the website is like some others (Facebook, for example) in that there is a time delay in response time in recognizing if someone is on or not.

Edited: Okay, I just logged off and still can see who is on the site even if I'm not logged in. That surprised me.

Yes, you found it. I can read the website when I can't get on. It has shown me in the last several days to be on under current users when I am not on and am trying to get on and cannot! And there I am --- except I am not on! Now that really is surprising!
