This is what I use for my Waze bookmark button:
https://www.waze.com/signin/?page=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.waze.com%2Fdashboard%2F
This way, the first thing I do when I get here is sign in, then immediately see my Dashboard to see how far down the ranks I'm sinking due to my laptop being out of commission. :cry: ;) I then use a second bookmark button to come to the forum (and having already logged in at the Dashboard, I'm never asked for a login at the forum).
I'm Spil, and I approve this message! :D

According to an article I recently read in Wired, passwords are inherently insecure, so we're all doomed anyway.

I wouldn't have known the difference without your explanation. Since I don't see a "stay logged on" box, I have to assume I am not using the forum login.

Until just recently, I would have agreed that the timing was about right. However, the past couple of days has shown me the odd behavior multiple times in a six-hour period - no new messages in any forum until I log out then back in. I suspect it could just be the age of the forum software. I'm not losing any sleep over it.

I stay connected to the forums in a browser window. I will frequently refresh the display to see where the new messages in each forum have come in.

Sometimes - infrequently, but it happens almost daily - I will refresh and see no new message indicators, but I have received an e-mail notification that there are new messages. If I log out and then back in, all is well.

Is this a symptom of an older version of forum software? I noticed the most recent copyright at the bottom of each page is 2007.

I am using Safari 6.0.2 on a Mac Book Pro.

With this one, I haven't had to log into the forums in about 6 months.

Set this as your bookmark. Check the Stay Logged In checkbox the first time you use it. After that, you'll rarely have to log in again.

Ah, first things first. Thanks for the tips, everyone. And would it be an idea to have an Amber-Alert-like thing in Waze? (This is the offtopic-forum after all)

I suspect the forum is rebooted once per 24 hours. As Guri's watchdogscript still ran the forum never reached 100% per day, only 99.8%. That reboot may hamper any open sessions (I deducted the latter; correct me if I am wrong). Or your session reaches a maximum duration of 24 hours?
