The KB does explain that but if you post a link to your board I can look at your cookie settings.

Your cookie settings are now correct with the leading dot. The example in the Knowledge Base article explains the what to do but the why is that the leading dot is required as the cookie domain needs to have two dots.

Please also note 3.0 has now reached End of Support and as such further support is limited to helping you upgrade.

It's also to do with the fact that you could come from two addresses with your site, with and without the www so the dot means you can have either.
In the example that starts forums.whatever.com you would not have the option to come from www.forums.whatever.com as sites that start with another 'word' other than www are usually coming from subdomains so the address is absolute so to speak.
