Am I the only one???

Sometimes my username is red when I'm not even logged in. My computer will be shut off, I'll come on bike forums at school or a friends house, and my name will be lit up before I even log in.

And also, sometimes I'll be logged in, but I won't click remember me, and then I will get logged out automatically after half an hour or so.

Does this happen to anyone else or am I just weird?

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

I don't know, but I don't like it.
  1. Change you password.
  2. Log out when you finish on BF so the cookies clear.
  3. If this continues, please let Brian or me know.

You could always get a friendly mod to check to ensure the ip is the same as th eone you use at your place. It could just be the "timeout" of logging out from bikeforums. I personally wouldn't be concerned, unless the ip is different, and that takes a couple of seconds for a mod to cross reference. I have noticed it on other forums more so than this one.

Wait - when the usernames are red it means the person's online?

Damn, learn something new everyday...
