Is there a forum for the functioning of permies.com?

If not, then is this the appropriate place to bring up an issue I'd normally ask the webmaster about?

This is the issue: When I receive a permies daily-ish email and click on a link and if I want to comment or to mark a post as helpful, almost always I discover I've been logged out. So I log in and the lose the page I was on and I have to go back to the original email and click on the link again. I'm sure there's a simple solution to this minor irritation that I haven't yet discovered, but how do I find it?  

Thank you. And my apology if this was not the place to be asking this question.

This is the right place to ask that kind of question. I don't know what the solution is. But someone who has an answer will probably pop up in a while. In the meantime, can I ask if you are on mobile or desktop? What operating system and browser are you using?

The Tinkering With This Site Forum is for talking about how permies works.

Looks like you found the right place.

being logged in requires cookies so if your browser wipes the cookies with each session, it will log you out.

Some email services "protect" you from the internet by putting a special link that deletes all cookies or something when you press a link from  your email.  Apparently you can change this in your email settings.  

It used to be just outlook, but gmail and some of the other emails are being more "protective" with how their users interact with links and the interne

Permies doesn't log me out but I've set my main browser and blockers to allow all things permies.com.  It's been about 8 years now since the last time the system logged me out during a special server update.

OK. I'm not sure what email setting changes might work in gmail (I looked through them and see nothing about cookies at all... maybe it's a  higher level issue i.e. Google). I can live with the little problem, I just wanted to see if there was a quick & easy solution. Guess not!

Thank you.

I, too, have set permies.com to be allowed and not changed. There was a Windows update last night... maybe that had something to do with it. Oh well, a mystery!

I don't know what the setting is called.  I gave up on gmail ages ago when I found out they were censoring my emails (pre-filtering emails before even junk mail filtering them) and I missed some really important ones.  

google announced they are doing this more this year if a mailing list email doesn't meet their specifications, they won't let them through to protect their customers from suspicious emails.  My library emails got caught up in this big time.  And then there was the month they blocked my amazon emails... (so the rant lasts about 16 hours with two toilet breaks and a snack... just imagine the rest of it)

I switched to proton mail.  They let all the emails through and just slap a warning on the suspicious ones.  

Perhaps a gmail user might know where the settings are?

"Funny".  Recently, the same thing happens to me too. It was fine since I signed up to permies up to recently. A pain in the butt for me because I don't like playing with settings since I don't understand the cookies and other tech stuff. Oh well.... it just means few extra  clicks to sing in
 
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
