...the next two things that need to be worked on are


Not timing out a user while one is actively performing a task like browsing the store, making a purchase, or writing/submitting a post in the forums.  Timeouts should only occur after a period of inactivity by the user.


Setting a placeholder when a timeout occurs so that when one logs back in they are returned to the same location in the store of forums. It is getting really old having to deal with losing one’s place when you are sent to your account page after clicking on the “Login” link.

I’m soooo glad we’ve got our avatars back!!  Now I’ll recognise people when they post (never was any good at remembering names, but I rarely forget a face….)! LOL

Thanks for all your hard work, programmers, and of course mods! wink

Were they going to make a Fastgrab RSS feed again, or a notification of what’s there?

Was there any plan to add a notify on Wishlist price change?

Better yet, I’d rather stop being logged out completely! It literally takes more than 5 minutes to login to the store on dialup so I never do any shopping anymore unless I have a very good reason to. We stay logged into the forums, it should be the same for the store :( I don’t want to login every single visit :(

I just want to ask, if the daily newsletter option nd the wishlist alert was meanwhile fixed? With daily newsletter option I mean, that I’ve got every day a newsletter with new releases, optional realeases from selected artists. I miss this option very much.

You stay logged into the forums? I don’t. It’s a toss-up which one dumps me first, the store or the forums, but they both do, apparently at random.

I used to stay logged in the store then dumped out of the forums. Now I’m continously logged into the forums and have to log back into the store every single time I visit.

Yes once you have got the system worked out to stay logged in to the forums, you have to login to the store, as that still times out. THe old site was exactly the same, you always had to login to the store, because that is on the secure side of the planet.


The secret to staying logged into the forums is to make sure that you log in to the forums first , benfore you login to the store.

TO do this, when you time out next time in the forum, go to your account and logout there also. CHeck that you are truly looged out by visiting the store and check if you are logged out ther.

Now go back to the forums and login again there. You should get a different style login screen, one with tick boxes under it about staying logged in. Tick both those boxes, and login using the exact same login details as if you were logging in to the store, so userneame is your email address and your store password,.

Before, you were actually logged into the store still and you only had to confirm your login information when you go to purchase something. Otherwise, you were logged into the store (unless you logged yourself out), so you could add things to the cart, wishlist or whatever still as well as see the correct pricing if your a PC member. Now, it doesn’t let you stay logged in so you can’t add things to your cart or wishlist and you don’t see the correct pricing, you have to login for all of that now and the login page takes absolutely forever on dialup :( It never used to take that long…..

Exactly!  I’m glad someone recognized the true difference!  Besides me.  The only time I had to log in before was when I tried to access my account.  Or when the site was down for maintenance and then everyone had to log in again.  Other than that, when I reboot my computer.  Now, the store doesn’t know who I am after not being in there for a while.  However, I can add something to my cart.  It just asks me to log in before it shows me the checkout.  The way things have gone, maybe that’s not the best situation.  Log in first, then click on checkout is probably better.

...didn’t work.  Still was logged out (again while the trying to post a comment).  When I clicked the login link I was once again routed to my account page, thus losing my place in the thread I was on.  When I tried clicking the back arrow to return the thread I was originally on, it kept looping me back to my account page instead.  Frustrated at the waste of time this had become, I closed the tab and started all over from scratch again


Now I have to spend even more time manually navigating back to the thread I was on (as all the ebot reminders I had for some reason decided to break all at once) and then try to remember what I was posting about in the first place as this latest episode pretty much derailed my train of thought.


...bloody ell, it’s 23:30 and I have to be up for work. at 06:00. I give up.
