Exactly, now how many people do nto post and how many more just quit the site out of rage instead of going tot he forums att all?

I really do not understand how you do not understand. There are 24 hours in a day and I am awake for 16 or more of those hours. I check my games and see that I have no turns to take. I then go about my business and come back to see that I have been logged out. Repeat 10 times per day, it is not hard math.

As per my previous statements, this does not help at all, even a little. The site times you out if you are not constantly clicking on things. I dont even care that it times me out and makes me idle or that it considered me logged out. I am concerned that it makes me logged in and does not remember me at all. This is literally the only site i log into that does this.

If I had to guess, I would say that very few of the users of this site have this problem. I rarely, if ever, have to log back in, but that is because I click around between my games and the Forum. I might have to log in a couple of times a day, even on days that I spend a lot of time online.
Basically, I'm saying that the suggestion hasn't been rejected, but I feel (based on my experience here) that there are a fair amount of other simple fixes that probably have higher priority for users and moderators.
If my request was weird, odd, or even just something that "would be nice" I would completely understand but I have literally waited years for a request to make the site as recent as the early 2000's. This feature is on almost every website that exists (although some hide the check box and leave you logged in until you log yourself out). As shown in my previous posts I have listed many examples of billion visit per day websites that have this - also, every website I have ever made has had this feature built in. Most frameworks have this built in automatically meaning that even people stupid blogs have it.
I find your statement to be miss-worded, in fact, every single user to this site have this problem, they either just do not complain about it, do not mind it, and or use their browser to remember their password and do not mind clicking once to login. Do you not find it wrong that you need to log into the site more than once per day at all? Ever? Again, I haven't logged into facebook, or youtube in months. Google in weeks. Surely you can also now see how annoying it would be if you were NOT active on the forum constantly.
I do not want a longer timeout time at all, in fact if it truly is 1 hour that is too long in my opinion. Imagine starting a speed game with someone who hasn't been online for 59 minutes - eww. I was happier with 15 minutes. Extending the time to be logner would not help me at all. I do not even want to sign in once a week or month. I just do not feel it is so much to ask the site for such a literally basic feature.
20 years ago power steering was an option on luxury cars. Today you wouldn't even consider buying a used car without it. I find this issue to be the same as power steering. I have fun here but I just cannot log in any more times before I rage quit again. I just got home from work and I have now logged in 1 time. Guaranteed 5 more times before I go to bed. Why? Because I am going to cook supper, eat food, watch tv, LOG IN AND CHECK MY GAMES, play a mutliplayer PC game, LOG IN AND CHECK MY GAMES, maybe watch a 2 hour movie, LOG IN AND CHECK MY GAMES, etc etc etc. It is ridiculous. I have logged into facebook maybe 30 times since I joined this site in 2007 and I have had 3 computers since then.
