Couples Resorts Message Board Rules
Registration to the Couples Resorts Message Board is free and required for participation. We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below.
Although the administrators and moderators of the Couples Resorts Message Board will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages.

The Couples Message Board is for polite, thoughtful discussion and inquiries about Couples Resorts only. Posts that are abusive, off subject, silly, containing personal attacks, threats, name calling libels, illegal activities, or hate group messages will not be allowed. By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.
Advertising will not be permitted, except by permission, or contract.

If those didn't work, read on...
Our system uses logins to keep track of who is who. There are a number of factors that can disrupt logins, especially with frequent users of a particular site requiring login. Without being able to sit down at your computer to determine your situation, we offer the following suggestions and notes.
3-Clicking "Remember Me?" when you login helps and is recommended, but can be overturned by other actions.
4-If you leave your browser open for a long time after you are logged in, wander off to other sites, go to lunch, etc. and then return to the message board, your login can time out.
5-If you login to the message board in more than one browser window or tab, conflicts can occur.
6- If you are taking turns logging into the message board on the same computer with another person who has a different login [profile], login conflicts will happen.
Both need to click 'logout' when finished using the message board. Otherwise, when the second person logs in, the 'cookies' that keep track of who you are can conflict. They won't know who is who.
A workaround is to have one person use Internet Explorer to login and the other use Firefox, Safari or Chrome [other free web browsers]. Since each browser has its own separate 'cookie jar' there will be no login conflict.
7-The privacy settings for your web browser may be set too high to allow the message board cookies to be set on your computer. We have noticed that when users are being upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 the privacy settings are being reset to a higher level. You may need to lower those settings. For Internet Explorer browser go to Tools > Internet Options > Privacy and set the slider to low.
8-If you are on a network, like at a work setting, network policies may restrict the message board cookies' actions.
9-Note that you do not need to be logged in to view the message board, only to post and access advanced features, like editing your profile.
We hope this might help and are sorry for your difficulties.
Thank you for participating on the Message Board!
