This didn't happen before, it started about a week, maybe two weeks ago.
I visit the site and the following day I'm logged out, even though it's supposed to "remember me", is there something broken?

Weird. Do you only log in from one machine only? Do cookies expire? Are the cookies being saved?

To put it simply, I haven't touched anything in the configuration I was using when I wasn't being logged out.
Cookies are saved until they expire, as normal.

Edit: and yes, I'm logging from this computer only.

This has always happened to me. Even back when I was using Firefox 0.8. I'm now updated to the most cutting edge edition (well, as of two months ago - had to switch to a new computer), and it still happens, but only on this site. It seems to forget I'd logged in between connection sessions.

I don't think browser settings are a problem, as other sites haven't done this to me (except the wiki every couple of months - but is otherwise fine most of the time).

I noticed the same thing yesterday O_o, 2-3 days ago it didn't happen, strange...

edit:
Hmm, now I was logged in. Maybe there's a 1-day period after which you are automatically logged-off?

It works for me, and I use IE because I am a microsoft slave. ;)

Nope, seamonkey :)
Once again I was logged in, so I guess it happens after a period of inactivity :/

The same thing happens to me on Firefox. I don't want to use IE to check if it happens there as well. :P

Used FF for years now, don't really want to test on Internet Exploder.

The cookies are set to expire every 7 days. Does it happen more often than that?

I would say 7 days is when I have to relogin, however I don't think it is needed. I would like to stay logged in unless I delete my cookies.
