I keep getting "logged out"  without ANY input from ME.  It's getting to be really annoying.  (As a matter of fact, while I just tried to post THIS--I got "ACCESS DENIED" because something logged me out.)

Then when I "re-login", alot of times it comes up with someone else's name!  Yet when I go into "my account" or's MY information.  It doesn't make any sense. 

A few weeks ago, I contacted GCT about this but the rep didn't have an answer.

I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this or better yet, had a solution!

 I have been in the same predicament as you.  I tried three times to no avail to post a reply with regard to a trip to Australia/New Zealand,  Unfortunately, none of these times could I post the reply.  So, I just gave up.

I don't know if "Logout" is on a timer, but posting messages is both on the OAT site and this one. It's happened to several people and some now write their messages on their computer and "copy/paste" them into the message boards. Others just keep copying as they write, which is what I do, but it is a pain.

The time to post seems to be limited to about 10 minutes. I don't know why there is no warning or why the message doesn't read "timed out" instead of access denied. I don't get why one also gets logged out and then has to log in again -- I think this needs fixing.
