Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

I think I don't have access to the donations@ email anymore, so I just submitted a ticket.....

Is there something I can do to make the cookies more sticky? The board keeps logging me out, even when other sites keep me logged in, amd it drives me nuts when I think I don’t see new messages but a few hours later realize there are tons,I just wasn’t logged in!

It took me a while to understand that that was not a baking question

Other thing is that when I get logged out, I have to reset my password. Or is that Gud telling me that I should be on the board more?

I have to log back in whenever I switch devices/browsers but I don't have to reset my password. As a datapoint in case that helps anyone fix either issue.

For the new board, you have to reset your password at least one time. You can give yourself the same password, if you want, but then it should stop nagging you.

I just want to note the "Contact Admins" link on the home page, which I think is a useful place to report issues.

There are multiple places! I don't really know where tickets go/who sees them.

Yeah, the password reset is necessary because the new board uses a newer, more secure password hashing method and the old board (like the new board) doesn't store your actual password but rather a hash of it, so it can't simply be rehashed using the new method. The old hashing method was fine at the time, but is now no longer considered secure.
