Does anyone find it takes forever to log in by chess.com/login.html compared to the homepage?

The thing that bothers me about trying to log in, is before I can finish typing in my password, this big ad comes and obscures the page and then I have to do it all over again even though I have a premium membership. Could the ad be delayed about 30 seconds longer in order to give us time to get our password in?

Of course I could stay logged in always and there would not be that problem. But isn't it better to log out when you leave the site?

All comments about log on and pop ups are true but as CHESS LOVERS we turn adversity into challenges to become better. look at it as building patience . lol

In a world of negatives I look only for the great things in every situation. Logging on to a computer site is not life or death. just ask the little baby that was born last night and the mother died in child birth. What about the homeless people that no one seems to care about,and there are many more dire cases. Why are complaining about logging on a computer?

Agreed. masontam would have difficulty working on any problem at an internet company. Nothing they work on is important compared in his value system.

The season of goodwill seems to get a little shorter every year.

Does anyone find it takes forever to create and keep track of a forum topic compared to ignoring a meaningless problem?

Are they running low on ganga in the Bahamas?

Surprised

Estragon

Or maybe I meant "ganja" - or "Lady GaGa" or something.

It took me about 2:40 to type all the stuff the op typed and to read everything else. However, I'm pretty slow, so I'll be conservative and call it 2 minutes. My pageload time difference is about 1.3 seconds.

120/1.3 =~ 92.3

So, in the nearly impossible situation that this thread ends up solving the problem, then you would have to log in 93 times for it to be worthwhile. That number however, will grow as long as people keep posting here.

yah, the pop box   IS VERY ANNOYING!!!    but I agree with my friend that are bigger problems in life. so i'll work on my patience instead of complaining about very futile stuff.

You can get rid of the pop-ups with a nominal fee of $29/year, so I'm told. 

Today there does seem to be a problem with logging in, more so than before.
