Hello,

I can confirm the problem torbengb observed.
There is general login for the website, the editor and the forum, but the forum seems to have its own session timeout. When I edit the map I check the forum from time to time for new posts (to give myself a break and to keep the roads view from burning into my retina). The site still says "hello gordonski logout" at the top, but in fact I'm logged out of the forum and don't see new post and can't access my posts or profile settings. I usually click logout and login then.
It would be nicer if the forum and the rest would share one session, but I assume that this would require some major restructuring of the website...

True, that's also a bother. Not even my automatic login managers can detect+fill+submit the Waze login form :cry:

True. Much better than world which logs you out in a very short time, but still it doesn't work as it should. I still have to login at least once every session. Log me in automatically should mean I only have to login once every 6 months or so as long as my browser keeps the cookies

I use tapatalk on the phone so don't really care how mobile browsers handle it.

Whether I use the UCP entrance or not my session still times out and whilst it still appears to have me logged in (according to the "Logout" link in the top right) I lose the "Last read" indicators


Same here. The forum has always been problematic.
Something else for waze login in general, browsers do not save or offer to save my credentials like other sites. I always have to type my id and password.
