And I've never seen any indication that restarting or clearing cookies, both of which I do now and then anyway, has any impact on that. I just figured it was another permabug and didn't care enough to look further. I'll also echo the sentiments on the multiple page login process--plus clicking the "return me to the previous page" link often just dumps me back at the main forum index page, instead of the thread I was on or trying to respond to when I got prompted to log in. All in all, it seems like posting anything ends up being a much bigger hassle than necessary.
If it has never worked for you, ever, then it most likely is an issue with your local setup. It works fine in all 5 of the latest most popular Internet browsers on this laptop (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, and Opera), the browsers on my other laptop, on my Android HTC One, my wife's iPhone, our iPad, and on our Kindle.
It would be very helpful if those of you having trouble would provide as much information as possible about your local environment to help us rule out issues or discover potential problems.
1. What operating system and which version are you using? (i.e. Windows
2. Which browser and which version are you using? (i.e. Google Chrome Version 29.0.1547.66 m)
3. What is your internet speed? You can find this by going to http://www.speedtest.net/
and running the tests on that page. (i.e. my download speed is currently 14.61 Mbs and my upload speed is currently 14.42 Mbs)
4. Have you tried using other browsers?
5. Do you have any problems with other sites that you frequently visit and use in a manner similar to Seibertron.com (such as a website that you want to be logged in permanently to, for example).

If you are on a fast internet connection, graphics shouldn't be a big drain on the speed of the site. Most, if not all, of the images on this site will cache on your local computer. The background image should stay cached on your computer for up to 1 year meaning that it never needs to download during that time, which points to a possible issue with something in your local environment.
Please provide the additional information above to help us figure out what issues you are having with Seibertron.com. Thanks.
