Any change for anyone else?

For those where it still happens, do you have a dynamic IP?
I was logged off in the past few days that I didn't visit the forum, but that happens every few months anyway. I'll report back if I get signed out sometime sooner than expected.

Clicked my bookmark, was logged out. Logged in. Went to by bookmark (the recently active topics page). Opened a few topics into new tabs. Tried to respond to one. Had already been logged out.

OK, just turned off Session IP validation:
Determines how much of the users IP is used to validate a session; All compares the complete address, A.B.C the first x.x.x, A.B the first x.x, None disables checking. On IPv6 addresses A.B.C compares the first 4 blocks and A.B the first 3 blocks.
If this doesn't help, then it just might be Cloudflair that is being a bit of a tit.

It looks like the Session IP Validation feature is interacting with cloudflare.

Well that sucks... so, has my disabling of IP validation fixed the issue then?

... doesn't mean something else isn't happening. So I hope people reading this can check. :)
