The DBR software used to allow you to retain your customization cookie, even after your My DBR ID expired. We originally did this because we weren't pedantic about forcing users to register (except for when you wanted to bid in an auction.) However, thanks to a former Chronicle editor, we found there is a bug when you want to vote in the Man of the Match/Player of the Game polls if you retained the cookies after your registration expired, so we've modified the code to remove all the cookies associated with registration when registration expires. Some of you, who have been inadvertently taking advantage of this former feature, will experience some minor unexpected behavior as your cookies are updated. Sorry!
