with the fact that the site does not remember members and details have to be entered again also i think it is about time that this wonderful technology site has come up with an arrangement that known users are auto logged in, we now have a backward step in the details have to be input every time
as you call them can only be recognised by a site if it sets a cookie.
The problem with auto-logins is just that - they automatically log someone into a site, and they don't care who it is. If someone else uses your computer they could login as you, and post away merrily.
We have had many cases of people posting abusive or other inappropriate comments, and when I've written to them about it they've said "It wasn't me, it was my son, or his friend, or my friend. or the milkman.
I'm sorry you feel like that, but there it is - we can't please everybody, no matter how hard we try, and it does look as though a large majority of our users like the new-look site.
Many people find it off-putting when something familiar suddenly changes. Maybe the revised forum will grow on you. maybe it won't. I certainly hope it does, and of course we'll be following up on many points raised by our members. It's only our first day online with this version of the site, so maybe it would be an idea to give us a chance, and see how you feel in a couple of weeks.
