Why am I constantly being logged out?

Before you reset all our passwords last month I never had a problem staying signed in on my mobile device and my computer.....and now it seems like 2 to 3 times a week I get kicked out now. Was there a site setting change that forces us to log back in every so often now? It's very annoying and I wondering if I am doing something wrong? I have had to change my password 3 times because I keep forgetting the new one (because I normally never have to log in again!)

Thanks

Nothing has changed with our log in system. Have you tried clearing your browsers cache and/or cookies?

It is more obvious this is happening a lot when there is a significant time gap between the time any new posts or replies in the "Hot Deals" section are made.
For instance, right now there is a 1 hour time gap between the time any new posts have been made at all in the busiest section of these forums.

There definitely are some issues with the log-in system.
Sometimes I would appear logged-in in the upper user control panel but I cannot post new messages or reply to messages as if I were offline.

When trying to re-log in when it appears that the user is logged in already it sometimes produces a "503 Service Unavailable" error and sometimes it will work and
log the user back in as normal.

When trying to post a new message, the text entry box will not be present even when it appears you are logged in.
When clicking the reply button, It would bring me back to the Log-in Screen even though the upper right hand corner of the screen appears to show the user as logged-in as normal.

Another problem that has been around for a couple months at least is the constantly changing city location. I don't use a VPN but
my location randomly keeps on changing even if I set it to Toronto manually.

Being logged out you mean? Safari, another browser or our app?

If it just started last Tuesday then it's part of the current data center issue we're experiencing. If it's been happening longer than that please send an email to support@redflagdeals.com and we'll check into your account for you.

I'm having the exact same issue. I get logged out all the time over the past couple of days. I was finally able to get back in now. I get 503 errors all day yesterday on phone (android), pc, and ipad.
That's 30 minutes away, I'll be there in 10.

I could see forums but was useless for the most part as there were no updates or new deals because people couldn't post. Grr.
