When I visit a GasBuddy blog page or sometimes when I post a price on the map directly, it logs us out and we have to log back in, and we don't receive our points. Please fix this bug!

In addition to the OS and browser questions, it might be helpful for you to be more specific about what action you're doing. For example, when you say "visit a GasBuddy blog page", do you mean that starting from the main page you're clicking on one of the five news items for the day, and this behavior only manifests when it's a blog posting rather than a news item? Also, how repeatable is it -- does it happen *every* time you try the same action?

hnofer, watch the URL in your address bar when this happens. Does the domain name change? If it does, that's your problem. They won't be able to do anything about it since cookies are used to keep track of your login and they only work on one domain at a time. If it's not that, I don't know.

What OS, what browser?
Check your system settings.
I have stayed logged in for days w/out problems so if it is a bug, it must depend on a number of factors coming together to cause the problem.
Got more details?
