Unfortunately this doesn't work every time or not at all for some people. I've tried pretty much anything that can be done on client site, if i get the "infinite login loop" problem, all i can do is wait.
Use the source, Luke!

I fixed it by clearing my browser cookies
But that failed for other posters, and for me. And anyway, the problem affects multiple browsers on multiple computers, so it can't be a simple cookies thing.

I find that the issue fixes itself if I wait for an hour or two.

PS: ironically, it happened to me now, trying to submit this post :/ And 40 minutes later all is well.

As already wrote, clearing cookies fixes the log out issue but I still could not post after a new login.

Happened to me on July 6 again, but I found interesting that while I could not post it seemed a new post from another user appeared - but I just might have missed it.

Another issue I have been noticing these past few days: Even when I mark all the posts read using Mark forums read link on the main page, the next visit the threads are still shown as unread.

No idea if it is related when this has started happening just recently.

The same thing happened here yesterday evening and at 0630 UTC this morning. It had resolved by, iirc, about 0900 UTC.

While it was happening, the Information dialog was empty; now it again says 'Forums have been marked read'.
