  1. One of the benefits of being a member is the ability to edit (i.e. amend) and even delete (i.e. rescind) your posts. Though one should never delete posts that have been replied to. And any editing done after replies have been posted should be done sparingly and transparently (e.g. by using Strike Through and adding a note indicating that the post has been edited). Edited at 9:15 AM.
  2. I almost never view the page where the three forums are listed. My "home page" is the "New Content" page (which combines all forums and shows individual topics). By the way, I suppose it should be noted that this topic has, indeed, turned into "Questions or Comments about the Message Board". Looks like our intrepid Moderator has some slicing, dicing, copying and pasting to do.
  3. Perhaps you should ask Mr. Dunbar. In any event, it seems PAP does stand for Professional Accredited Parliamentarian and LP stands for Licensed Parliamentarian.
  4. The top of one's head is not always the best place to look. Scrolling through acronymfinder.com, perhaps PAP stands for Professional Accredited Parliamentarian. As for LP, all bets are off. Licensed Paralegal?
  5. Isn't that what Google is for? Edited at 6:00 PM to add: Dunbar is Shane Dunbar, MEd, PRP, PAP, LP.
  6. And even though Mr. Honemann has retired resigned from The Authorship Team, I've already suggested (alas, to no avail) that he retain his position as a member of The Moderating Team. If for no other reason than he has contributed more than 4,000 posts as a Moderator and those posts no longer indicate that.
  7. I've done a little more Googling and may have found one possible source of the "problem". Some of the cookies are set to expire when the browsing session ends. But this can be overridden by Chrome. Go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Content settings. If the first option, "Allow local data to be set" is selected, the session cookie(s) will be retained. If the second option is selected, they won't be. For example, consider this cookie: mqtidsCreated: Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 9:20:05 PMExpires: When the browsing session ends My browsing sessions have ended several times since June 3 bu
  8. Hmm. I rarely turn off my modem (which doubles as a WiFi router) and didn't in the above experiment. So I checked my IP address, closed the tab with this forum, closed the browser, shut down the computer, and turned off the modem. Then I turned on the modem, turned on the computer, opened the browser, verified that I now had a new IP address, and returned to this page. Still logged in.
  9. Okay, You mentioned a "cookie blocker" and I thought you might have been referring to some third-party program, not Chrome's internal settings. Computer off all night; still logged in this morning.
  10. I look forward, respectfully, to Ms. Holloway's moderation.
  11. I just closed the tab with this forum, closed the browser, shut down Windows and turned off the computer. Then I turned on the computer opened the browser and came to this site. Still logged in. You might take a look at your Chrome content settings and see what the cookie settings look like.
  12. Since I'm on the same forum using the same browser*, I don't think either is the source of your problem. *I should note that I'm using Chrome Version 43.0.2357.81 m
  13. I'm experiencing no unexpected logouts using Chrome with Windows XP. Closing the browser, shutting down Windows, turning off the computer. No problem. Edited to add: Chrome is storing 7 cookies for robertsrules.forumflash.com. Also something called an "indexed database". Some of the cookies expire "When the browsing session ends" but I'm not sure it means what it seems to mean. Anyway, I guess one of the cookies keeps me logged in and another remembers which posts I've read. I'm not sure any of this is especially helpful but you could check your cookies and see what's there.
  14. Do you click the "Remember Me" box when you log in? As long as you're using the same browser on the same computer, I assume a cookie is doing the job of keeping you logged on. Have you made any recent changes to your browser settings re: cookies? I'm basically logged in 24/7 though I think I've been unintentionally logged out a couple of times (can't remember if the circumstances had anything in common).
