Have you tested your user cookie to see if it's there and working correctly? There's a test link on the Utilities page.... If it isn't working, check the security settings in your browser to make sure it allows cookies, and reset the cookie following the procedures on the Log In page.

Just trying to figure this out for myself.I dont know if this has anything to do with anyone else.But i was told by my computer guy that i loose my cookie every time i delete my temp history.No big deal to me just thought i would run it by you.I do delete every night. Just my thoughts. Have a good one ---Ron B

The flags require a cookie on your computer to keep track of the last time you visited. No cookie = no flags, plus no access to the Member area of the tractor Registry. The site also uses cookies elsewhere to try to keep track of who you are, in case your User Session has timed out (20 minutes since your last interaction). Typically if you're having problems with Clubhouse functions, the first thing to check is your cookie. Since the entire cookie must be rewritten each time you want to change ANY of the information in it, like your last visit, it is easily corrupted by communication problems while you're surfing. You can use the test on the Utilities page to see if your cookie is working, and if it isn't, just revisit the Join Club page and click "Submit My Edits" to automatically reset it.... If you use the IE menu option to delete temporary Internet files, it shouldn't delete the cookies. But, if you manually delete the files in your Temporary Internet Files directory using the Windows Explorer you can delete them.... Cookies are a pain, but to do away with them and maintain the same functionality would require doubling the demands on the server (a read action and a separate separate write action) each time you viewed a page...
