Having to log in WAY to often

Why does this site require logging in so often? It's getting annoying!!!!!
I'm also winding up on a registration page when I enter my password, which means I then have to switch to "Log In" on a third page. FYI tech folk: This seems to happen mostly on my PC>Windows7>Firefox. Less frequently on my iPhone.
Did I say this was getting really annoying?
Sounds to me like you un-clicked the "remember me" button on the sign on screen. By doing so, every time you leave the site it will require you to re-sign in. If you leave it clicked you can leave the site and go back to it and it will "remember you" and you won't have to log in. Double check that....that's all I've for you.
You shouldn't have to login more often than every couple of weeks. If it's happening more often than that, it's possible that a browser extension of external program may be dropping your login cookies. Some ad blockers or anti-spyware programs get overly enthusiastic in what they delete, and there are also specific cookie clean-up extensions that might be removing them.
One thing that sometimes seems to help is to go in and clear all your chow.com related cookies and clear your cache and then log back in.
