What is it with this “Welcome back” (WB) fashion? I’ve just changed laptop and signed in to the forum on the new one, new browser, no cookies. The login page had “Welcome back”. I haven’t been anywhere, and was probably still logged in on the other one. “Welcome” is nice, WB is for after you have left job/country/club for a while and you come back.
I know lots of banks use WB, even when they force logout after 5 mins and you log in again, but it’s wrong. When I first encountered computers VAX VMS c. 1980 the login had “Good Morning” or “Afternoon” depending on time. Slightly amusing but logical. Now we have AI but we’re not using simple logic and language correctly.
(Just a minute, it said WB before I had signed in, it had “create account” there as well. Is it saying WB to new arrivals? this is getting worse.)
