    It's really, really annoying when that keeps popping up when I've come here just to surf, it forces me to log on just to stop it from popping up.

    Anyone else agree?

    this issue can be remedied by just having the site remember you to keep you logged in.

    That doesn't really work if you're browsing from, say, an internet cafe, or a school computer lab.

    I don't actually know what the bar is in question, since I always browse from home, but I'm just saying from a security standpoint, the "remember me" option should always be merely a convenience, never a solution. =P

    I noticed this today when browsing on another computer.

    Is this some new fantastic new "feature" of IE7 or something?

    no its an addon for vbulletin. the software thats powering tf2maps.net
    its used to increase chances of the user actually posting and getting involved with the discussion instead of just lurking.

    ill leave it for now but if it becomes more of a headache for members ill go ahead and remove it.

    Anyone done a study on that. :D Because personally if I were to come to a website that gave me such annoyances (it makes a sound too, doesn't it? I know something did when I came back after the change and wasn't logged in), rather than registering I would deem the site unforgivable and never come back. (I really really hate annoying stuff on sites <_<)

    I can see the logic on both sides. I'll have to give this one some thought.
