Do we need to login every time we visit the site to avoid being a "guest" instead of a registered user? Second, doesn't registering "protect" your user name so unregistered people can't sign on and use and abuse your name?
jlong "guest" could be someone other than jlong "registered member". What is the point of a password then?
jlong - the member... but signed on as a "guest"

Just checking to see if what I'm talking about is true...

Go to the user menu icon just above the list of topics. Click on it and then go to forum preferences and click yes to remember you when you log in. Then hit the update button. That will take care of not having to log in every time. As far as someone else using your name, I'm not sure, so I just used it. If it works then I guess that means someone could. I don't think someone like you has anything to worry about though. You have built up a very good reputation and if someone started messing with you, people would figure it out by the way they acted and the word guest under your name. You still have two options though. You can come on under your member name and tell everyone that it is an imposter, and you can also contact me and I will track down who it is and take appropriate actions.

By the way Jason, the jlong imposter was me in case you didn't figure it out. I forgot that my name wasn't going to appear at the top. :)

Thanks Jim, I had already selected the "remember me" feature. The question I had was the first time on the site each day, do you need to login? Then all times after that it "remembers" you? I haven't been loggin in first... which is why my posts have all be by the "guest user" rather than the "member".
I'll try to remember to login.
P.S. So how will we know when the REAL Joe Bucher decides to actually visit a board like this? He hasn't been on here before to build a reputation... so the first time I see Joe Bucher's name.. I'll have to ask... is this really Joe?

Ok imposter, if you're gonna pose as me, at least get the numbers right. HUNTER3897- My first son's name and birthdate-3/8/97. :)
Jason, we must have our wires crossed. I am talking about it remembering you when you first get here. I never log in anymore. When I show up, the cookie remembers who I am. As far as I know, if you did what I said, it should know who you are every time you show up.

Oh, and Jason, from what I've heard, the real Joe Bucher won't be coming back to the boards for quite some time, if ever. He and his vast knowledge base are always welcome here though! For now, we will just have to be happy ferriting out Hunter3897 and jlong imposters. :)
