Re: Login timeout can be much much longer

Postby QoH on Wed Sep 07, 2011 7:13 pm

I'm pretty much logged on for hours, even on my phone which shows me as online for most of the day.

I wish I had known about this thread when it was active. Of course, I almost never interact on the forums, so that's no surprise. I am a premium member, though, and I do like the games. Earlier today I posted a suggestion for a much longer timeout because I was also annoyed by having to login so often. I was directed to this thread.

Anyway, I wholeheartedly support rryan's suggestion, as well as all his arguments and counter-arguments. Even the minor amount of frustration he showed through some remarkable self-restraint. I won't bother repeating everything he argued for, or trying to add any more clarification of the terms involved. Please consider my vote to be exactly alongside his. I believe many more people would appreciate the feature, too.

Thanks for reading. I hope the technical people do have a chance to consider this.

Thanks Metsfanmax! That thread does discuss this same issue. I added a post there.

If this is something that is technically feasible given the site's architecture, it would be nice. I think busy people get annoyed when they have small time wastes throughout their day. If there is something that can be done for them, it would be a nice gesture.

I also agree that this should be implemented. Hell I would be happy for 1-2 hours of inactive time to force me to log back in rather than 15 minutes.

I'm pretty sure that the inactive time is set for an hour now. I wouldn't mind a longer time, but this would be pretty low on list of priorities. However, I think that it should be pretty easy to implement.

will the site still drop your speed game if you have been inactive for 15 minutes ?

Yes. How long before you get logged out is not the same as dropping speed games. The time stored is the last time you loaded a page, and calculations are made from there.

Great! Then no architecture changes are needed and it really is just a matter of changing a number somewhere. I vote for at least 24 hours, if not more.

If it's changed, I think 24 hours is plenty. I just don't want to hear people complain about forgetting to log off and someone getting on their account and ruining their turns.

I have literally left this site over this 99% common feature on every other website ever not being present here. I have come back several years alter to see if it has been fixed and I can see that it has not. Is there truly any particular reason it has not? Your concern about being forgetting to log out is not a concern at all since the "keep me logged in" check box is an opt-in during login. When used on a public computer one simply would do nothing (not click the opt in box).

Since creating this topic I have logged into the previously mentioned forum 1 time. That is one single login over the last 3 years. I visit the site every day but my "active" time is only 4 days (less than 96 hours) since I am put offline after a couple of minutes of inactivity. The one time I had to re login was when I used my work computer and chose not to have the site keep my logged in.

Once again, I want to stress my concern that almost every other site has this same option, yahoo, google, comcast, facebook, as well as most private sites. Except this site.

I once again, respectfully, ask you to please consider adding a "keep me logged in" check box like every other site has which will keep users from having to log in constantly, BUT STILL automatically marks them as inactive after the traditional 15 minutes or whatever the current setting is now. This would not affect speed games at all, turns, or anything except prevent users from typing in their account information over and over and over again.

And yes, I still refuse to use any browser based password manager for this - even though it will fill in the fields it is A) not the same whatsoever, and B) now how I choose to use my computer or be lax with my security.

Therefore, can this please be reconsidered? I am literally only asking for a feature that will make the site at least as modern as 2006.

P.S. for whatever reason I can also see that some moderator has changed the title of this thread to "Login timeout can be much much longer" which is literally not what I am or ever was asking for at all. Just to be clear.
