In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: viewtopic.php?f=130&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should read the ‘Bugs Forum Guidelines’ thread.
2. In rare situations members have been known to post false bug reports in order to affect the game. This is considered cheating.
3. Please don't post information that might be detrimental to the game, such as revealing the power who sent a message. If further information is required by Admin to investigate the bug, you will be asked to provide it.
If the game a bug may have occurred in is anonymous, including Gunboat and Public Press Only, it is best to send a Private Message to the SITE HELP! group or to post using the Dolph Shtoss account rather than break anonymity.

Logging in

Quick question:

When I open up this site, I'll enter my username and password to log in. Despite doing so correctly the first time, the site often reloads and I have to log in once more (whereupon I can enter the site). This isn't a complaint of sorts because this snag consumes so little of my time - just wondering if anyone else has this occasional issue and what the reasoning might be behind it.

Thanks!

I assume you are not allowing cookies? If you tick the box saying remember me, Playdip will create a login cookie so you are automatically logged in when you return. However of course you may be running in a private browser session or have a general block on cookies which would override that.

As for double log in, I have heard of that a long time ago but I don't think anyone has brought it up recently. I can't actually imagine what causes it.

If you are used to using your browser's developmer tools, you can have a look before you log in at your cookies and see if there is one. It is under playdip and will have the (misprinted!) name rememeberuser.

I occasionally encounter this bug also. It doesn't happen every time, though I've not paid attention enough to try to distinguish when it happens and when it doesn't.

At home I have myself logged in automatically. If I log in on my work computer I do not check the box to keep me logged in, and yes, I have to enter my details twice.
