Why is it that when I switch domains, the 'Geek (GeekDo, or whatever incarnation it goes by now) logs me out? I'm mostly a BGG girl, but I've started dipping my toe in the water of RPGG and VGG, only to find out I have to log in all over again.

Worse, I forget that, do a search on an item I want to add to my collection, find it, discover it won't add, click maniacally for a bit, realize it has no name at the top (and therefore can't figure out whose collection to add it to), log in -- and get taken to a new screen! (Which helpfully tells me I'm logged in.) And if I back up to the previous screen, I see "login" at the top again. AARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!

I thought there was some method of staying logged in across domains. I get autologged into BGG, so I guess I could set it up for the other two, but shouldn't it know I haven't undergone a personality transplant just because I clicked the RPG tab?

Rather than using the regular Username and Password fields when logging in, you can click the Login link that is to the right of "Board Games, RPGs, Video Games" in the top bar. That link will log you into all the sites. Otherwise you are just logging into whichever one you are on currently.

Thanks! Now is there a way to do that automatically? (Or is that a browser-specific thing?) Normally I'm logged into BGG as soon as I open it.

After you login, just make certain to hit each domain once a week so the cookies don't expire.
