There is a "Remember Me" box under your user name that you will need to check if you want to stay signed in.
You mean up top where it says "Welcome Kristalina"? It's not under my name. Under my name is the "new participated" button, then an ad, then the board info. It just isn't on top, no matter what screen I'm on.
I will do what you're suggestion FairyPodMother and look through the help section. thank you.
