To start...
I thoroughly enjoy the new settings permissions. Being able to turn off annoyances (i.e. the article auto-scroll) and set group preferences and listings in one, rather intuitive, UI is a good thing. If the bloody thing would kept set!
I've had my preferences reset to the defaults at least five times in the past three weeks! It gets rather annoying to redo them every couple of days.

Thank you.

Sorry for the slow reply. I've been away for the last week.

A couple quick questions.

1) Are you always logged in?
2) Is your browser deleting cookies?

The settings are saved in your personal profile, and in a cookie. If you delete cookies and aren't logged in, then the settings will reset to default.

Let me know what the case is, and I'll pass it on to Dan.

In answer to your questions:
1) I try to keep logged in.
2) I generally don't have my browser set to delete cookies.

Now I am generally viewing the site through an older machine/browser set up. So I can't necessarily say the problem is on either end.
In the time since my OP, the settings have held. :::Keeps fingers crossed:::

Okay, let us know if the problem returns.

I'll leave this thread open so you can post in it again if need be.
