An expired session requires you to login again, which can be automatic.

If you need to manually login again, you either don't allow cookies and/or you haven't enabled the automatic login option. If you do both, you will be automatically logged into the forums.
Is it because I have script blocker?
And I don't think that it takes me 20 minutes to write a few paragraphs…
I pretty sure I've set everything to allow for this place.
I'll go check my settings again just in case.

Didn't it all day and thought that the new like bs had been thrown in the bin.

It looks like a Facebook like though…

Why can't we have one like we have when we post a reply???

The session duration is set to 1200 seconds, which is 20 minutes. The session timer is reset every time you actively do something on the site, like opening a new page.
A session is maintained server side based on your IP address, so you blocking anything should not matter. It does matter if your ISP is changing your IP address, that would be seen as a new session.
But then there are also cookies, they will log you in automatically when enabled, even if an IP change happens. If you block that, it will not do that obviously.

I like the +1 option, so good work

I dont get why not more forum uses it, it should be standard by now. It has many good uses, people tend to get more helpful and no stupid "i totally agree with you, +1!" posts.

Very well.

I will comply to the collective's opinion since nobody else seems to mind about it.

On the homepage, there's a Q&A article with Logic artists who made Expeditions : Conquistadors. It seems there's no way to comment on the article though.

Even pressing the comments (0) button just redirects to the homepage.

That is odd. I don't know why that failed updating, will have to check it.

I remember that I wasn't prompted to generate a newsbit when I published the article.

That explains it. You approved it instead of publishing it

Fixed!

Is there a way to see a list of all unread posts ?
And then be able to mark them as read ?

I've been using tapatalk lately and that's the best feature I cannot find on the website.

1. In the menu at the top of the page: "FORUMS -> New Posts"
2. On the Forum Index page at the bottom: "Mark Forums Read"

1. I thought those only showed posts in the last 24 hours.
2. Any way to mark one thread read at a time ? (I knew about that one) The thing I do on Tap a Talk is to mark as read the ones I don't find interesting. Then when I have some more time, I read the ones I do want to read.

That's only if you're logged out. If you're logged in, they show everything unread from the beginning of time.

Not that I'm aware of, but there's an addon for that I think. I might try it later.

Well, it does keep all unread ones. You only need to be logged in for it to work like that. As long as you don't read them, they stay unread and the link always shows all threads with unread posts in them, so I think it does what you want it to do.

Well, I guess I'll have to live with it. It's not too bad.

But the thing is I don't always stay logged in, and I log in through different devices.

Tapatalk keeps it even through my different devices and whether or not I log in or out.
