Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

This sucks, I hope it's not someone's idea of an upgrade. The forum was working fine.

I theorize that it's a Lithium issue because I use two other Lithium forums, both of which were also wonky today.

Re: Anyone else getting bumped off this site?

This has been happening for the past couple of days.

 

Before then, when I logged into my B&N account, I was automatically logged in on the boards. Now, I have to log into my account. Then go to the boards, and log in again. And I get logged off just about every hour or so. Not from my account, only from the boards. So, I don't realize I'm logged off, until I see that there are however many tens of thousands of new comments.Sigh.

Re: Anyone else getting bumped off this site?

I wish they would fix whatever it is they are doing. Getting tired of having to log in. I think this is the 8th time I have had to log in since this started. I logged in twice this morning once on the NC and again on the Laptop which I am typing on now.

Re: Anyone else getting bumped off this site?

I was logged in on my Nook Color last night right before I went to bed. NC went to sleep, woke it up this morning and had to log back in. Got to work and brought up the browser, had to log back in here too. It's been doing this for a few days now and it's getting old!  I'm shown as logged in to my B&N account as it says Welcome, Tonya at the top, but when I go into the forums I'm not logged in.  Of course, if I didn't have to come here 10 times a day to check and see if I've missed the upgrade, it wouldn't be an issue!  :smileywink:

Re: Anyone else getting bumped off this site?

I have to add that beeing able to stay logged in is not the norm. We have been spoiled.

Most forum sites will drop you after a certain amount of idle time.

 

Mite be how it works here moving fwd.

 

They just need to stop dumping me when I AM active  :smileymad:

Stupid nc. I hit post by accident before i entered anything. I think the admins are tired of us, so they keep kicking us out. :smileywink: I don't know what the problem is but it needs to be fixed. This is getting annoying. I know some forums will eventually log you out after a period of inactive time. But this is overdoing it.
