Suggestion: An option to allow people to stay logged-in

Postby mbarbier on Tue Feb 06, 2007 1:05 pm

I think it would be very helpful to allow people to stay logged-in using cookies. This would save a little bit of hassle for those of us who like to check on their games every couple hours. I don't see any significant drawback either; it's not as if this is an online banking site.

Yes, that would be a good option. You just can add a check-box in which you can choose between staying logged in or not (when you play on a computer for 1 time or on a computer that more people use for CC).

Nope - Have to disagree - makes the 'members online' unreliable. Is my partner online or has he forgotten to log off? Announcing a new record of 1050 members on line - oh but hang on how many are really online?

not knowing too much about server operations, would this effect the server load at all? I know that that is an issue as of late.

Permanent Login

Postby Knil on Thu Mar 01, 2007 3:40 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to have an option of permanent login from 1 PC for a set user. Other sites seem to do. This would be a help to those you use IE?

Not sure if this has been suggested before. Did a quick search couldn't find anything obvious.

Thanks Knil

No, that would mess up the users online statistics.

Er... No, it wouldn't. Handing out a cookie doesn't mean anything. Having the users online/offline status is as simple as logging their most recent click and comparing that with a set 'online' standard (For example, 10 minutes).

Allow user to set auto-logout timeout

Postby fugue137 on Fri May 18, 2007 11:30 am

  • Suggestion Idea: Allow the user to configure the time delay before the server logs her out.
  • Specifics: I would suggest a numerical entry box on the "My Settings" page, with 0 or -1 indicating "disable auto-logout", and numbers representing minutes. Alternatively, a dropbox with "Never", "15 minutes", "30 minutes", "1 hour", "2 hours", "4 hours", "8 hours", or whatever. Yes, logarithmic scales are your friends.
  • Why it is needed: Because it's frustrating having to continually log in again to see whether it's my turn yet. Many people are playing from their personal computers, where there is essentially no chance of someone usurping their games.
  • Priority: 4? Who am I to say? It's important to me. But I would think that this could be done very easily.


Many thanks for the great site!

well at this moment you will have a 24times log in maximum :) and i thnik you will sleep a lot of times. so i think it will go to a maximum of 4 log ins pro day. just get an easy password, thats not the big deal, but i like it if i could just auto login, from my own ip...

'Remember Me', cookies and Google Toolbar

Postby flippety on Sat May 26, 2007 11:44 am

Hi all, I'm a new member (considering going Premium because 4 games just is not enough!). I love the site - well put together i just have one confusion. I don't stay logged into the site... If I close my browser when I come back I have to log in again. This is fairly annoying... but I'm surprised on this oversight as the rest of the site is thoughtfully setup. Did i miss something? Also I'm trying to build a google toolbar button to get me into the site quickly and notify me when its my turn... any chance of making the login php page support a get as well as a post? Thanks

There are also other downloads that tell you when it is your turn, or you could use an RSS feed.

thanks for the support wcaclimbing... I agree.. I'm not sure that 1000's of users installing an add-on to fix a site is a better solution than having the site fix it once. It seems a simple update which is why i suspect there is a technical reason for not supporting it - in which case i'd like to hear it.

I dont have firefox either but I dont like it when things automaticly log you on. With cc it doesnt matter so much because who want to steal my account. Partialy because they could make one for free and partaily because I suck. But there are more impportant things to do

I don't want to log in anymore!

Postby paulk on Wed Jul 25, 2007 7:36 pm

How come I have to log in every freaking time I wait more than an hour between checking on my games?

Can't you simply add an "Remember Me" or "Keep Me Logged In" check box to the log in form?

Please. This should be easy to implement. A little cookie.
