Sign In......Yawn.

I have been a member here for quite some time and it has always baffled me (and recently annoyed me) as to why I have to sign in just to BROWSE the forums. All the other forums I am a member of let me view ALL the threads without having to sign in.

It really is a pain in the arse, every time I come here to have a look at what good advise is been given I have to sign in, it's a nightmare.

Can something be done about it?

What - one click on one button is a big deal?

I only have to click a button.

Alan2 I only have to click a button.

Oh dear, I think I have been missing something.

I put my e-mail address in to log in every time I come here.

What 'button' are you guys using?

I think you simply check a box for your email address and password to be remembered.

Then, thereafter, all you have to do is click the "Log In" box.

if you click save details then you only have to click one button when you return

Place a tick in the "Remember my details" box, then each time you visit, you just click to log in. j.

yes that too.

lol ;o)

Why the log in if our details are remembered anyway? I too wondered why we have to click on the 'log in' and then wait (a whole 1 second!) to be redirected to the forum pages that we want in the first place. If it's to ' force us' to see the AD then I can understand that.
