These forums - augh!

I swear these Oculus forums are driving me crazy. Curious if this happens to anyone else.

Every few weeks, I will open the forums only to find myself logged out for some unexplained reason. I then have to go to the Oculus main page, and log in from there. Once logged in I go back to forums, and still not logged in to them. It stays this way for a while, even though I show logged in on the Oculus main page, until it eventually shows me logged back in on the forums.

I am using MS Edge, and it has been doing this every few weeks for a while now. Drives me batty!

    That happened to me a lot in the past.
     Yesterday however, I got logged out once again and thought not this again!
    But I logged in faster than ever. So I actually thought that the forum might have gotten an update as well.
     Running Firefox mostly btw.

    I got logged back in using IE, Edge still will not show me logged in.

    I suppose eventually it will - this in only forum of quite many I frequent that does this. Oculus really needs to do a facelift on their forums.

    I also cleared all my history and cache, no difference.

    Does this chrome, Firefox, Dolphin and Safari

    Facebook don’t care for forums, apparently 
    Look, man. I only need to know one thing: where they are.

    ditto here... the code behind these forums is frankly crap. combine that with the quoting bug which you have to jump through hoops to get around, it is a poor show considering the kind of company Facebook are imo.

    Whew, just now finally got it to show me signed in to Edge again.
    So dang aggravating!

    They just need to change the forum software a little. Get it to where one can sign in actually on the forums rather than being re-directed to Oculus.com to sign in separately from forums. Guess it can take a while for it to propagate to the forum software.At least that would seem to me what would make sense to this simple mind.

    Yeah the quoting is pretty bad also, and a pain.

    I'm hoping if it keeps bumping in the support section, Oculus may respond.

    Why on earth are some of you using Internet Explorer and Edge? They exist for one reason and one reason only - to download Chrome or Firefox lol

    Exact same problem here, using Firefox. it could work for days and happen suddenly with the same difficult way to login again.

    Hey everyone - Sorry you're running into issues logging into the forums. This is something that we're aware of and have been working to improve for a while now. I don't have much of a status update beyond that unfortunately. As you can probably imagine, things are a little busy around Oculus these days, so we'll need some additional time to keep working on this. In the meantime, heading to Oculus.com, logging in there, navigating back to the forums, and then hitting login there should get you in. I know this workaround is less than ideal, so we appreciate your patience and understanding. We'll get it fixed. Thanks for hanging in there with us.

    Thanks for the feedback much appreciated!

    I will tell you though logging in at Oculus.com and then trying to login at the Forum does not work for me, it just hangs there on the forum with the status bar moving back and forth. Eventually after several minutes or even up to an hour, refreshing page it will then show logged in.

    Maybe a more simple fix might be to get it where it does not log us out?

    Yeah the world around works sometimes and other times it doesn't. Sometimes your just completely locked out for 2-4 hours and there's nothing you can do.

    I have the same problem with login

    Also, quotes are horrible here.
