Annoying ass thing is happening for the last day or so that now the front page chat box is getting confused with a log in box - even when you are already logged in. It’s only recently started doing this? I’m using safari on iPad / iPhone. Anyone else in the same boat?

Safari is trash, but I went from using Linux and Mac workstations at my last job to being issued a Windows laptop at my new job. Windows is hot trash compared to MacOS... But either way half my work is in Chrome anyway 😆

iOS on the other hand I would usually rather use an Android device.

Since this just started up again, and there has not been any changes with the chat/forum interface other than nuking the banner, I would say Safari bug from the number of occurrences I am seeing.

Safari must have changed something in how it detects the 'userid' field.

If the user is already seeing the chat input box, then the user is already logged in so I guess Safari, if that is the common browser, is missing that.

I could put a banner back in, 'This banner exists as a security fix for poorly written Apple products' or something like that.

It seems to have resolved itself. Thanks though.
