Off-Topic Forum

The MPIP Off-Topic Forum is a community bulletin board that provides the melanoma community with a safe space to share experiences and to give and find support from others who can relate to having or caring for someone with a melanoma diagnosis. Please note: if you have an urgent question about melanoma to ask the community, visit the main MPIP Forum.

MPIP is the oldest and largest community of people affected by melanoma hosted through the Melanoma Research Foundation. It is designed to provide support and information to caregivers, patients, family and friends. Once you have been touched by melanoma—either as a patient or as a family member or friend of a patient—you become part of a community. It is not a community anyone joins willingly. But if you must be part of this group, you will find no better place to find the tools you need in your journey with this cancer, and the friends who can make that journey more bearable.

The information on the bulletin board is open and accessible to everyone. To add a new topic or to post a reply, you must be a registered user. Please note that you will be able to post both topics and replies anonymously even though you are logged in. All posts must abide by MRF posting policies.

so, it appears that more than a few of us are having the same problem with our log in process. Mainly that we have to log in every time we visit, even though we've requested that the site remember our log in.

what's up with that?

I'm having a problem with being relentlessly logged off of this site. I know I'm not alone in this, since Fen posted something last week or so about having the same issue.

I've tried about everything I can think of to fix it, but it happens over and over. It asks me if I want to stay logged in, I say yes, but if I close the site and come back a few mintues later, I have to log in again.

unlike Fen, who has to add his password over and over again, I don't.. once I start the log in process (by putting in the first initial of my name) it shows my name in the pop up window, and once I choose that, it shows that my password is saved, then I hit the 'do you want to stay logged in button', then log in, and I'm fine, but I have to do it every time.

Like Fen, I also had that red box telling me something about info being compromised and that I'd been logged off. I was out of town, logging in from a hotel at that time, so I sort of assumed that the problem was due to me being on a public line, but I've not been able to correct it since returning home.

I noticed on the main board, that when Fen posted, several others mentioned that they were having the same problem (jerry from CC was one)

For all I know everyone is having the problem. Any suggestions?

All we got was some good rain and medium wind. Took the boat out of the water just to be safe.  The storm had weakened a lot before it got up to us. Hope those further south got by ok.

Wow!!! If Earl slides right up the coast a very large percentage of the nations population coud be heavily effected.  A cat 3 or 4 centered right along the coast would cause huge problems for a lot of big cities including DC.  And the tail og the dog (coastal Maine) could be wagged pretty hard.

Gallagher,

 Would you just start drinking copious amounts of Jameson and resolve this issue. Sorry to be blunt but obviously the issue is your skull is too thick. My diagnosis comes as a result of your genes. Take Big Mick for example, he has Harlem bullets lodged in his skull that he doesn’t even know about and there is no need to even talk about the Wynne side of things.  To that end, my diagnosis/solution (couldn’t think of a medical term ending in “is” for solution)/prognosis is as per below

 

 

Patient is presented with fatty head

Double drip is connected with Jameson 15 year old reserve (veins or arteries, matters not as long as it is going in)

Patient may become incoherent or try and fight the world.

Singing rebel songs and attempting to throw stones into the sea towards Britain is a common side effect

Patient loses intelligence but that is OK as he is now a poet (and is invincible so beware when arguing)

Fatty head becomes sore head

Drips are removed.

Head is sore but brain has reduced in size.

Irish Breakfast is provided to assist with anaesthetic effects.

Patient may now fly to Europe for Friday night top ups.

 

Voila!!!
