Can the title be changed back to the original title that actually describes the suggestion? If i hadn't created this thread I literally wouldn't click it because extending the timeout time is not a great idea.

Re: Allow me to stay logged in

I have this issue and it is most prevalent on my phone. I like to check things when I can't get to a computer and logging in on a phone is definitely not fun. Some people may not run into this issue, like rdsrds2120, because they stay logged in via Live Chat and just forget they are on while they play video games and come back two hours later and are still logged. :)

I personally like this idea and would love something to happen with it. I don't really play games but lurk on the forum.

I cannot fathom why this is not already an option.


Hell yeah!

I agree completely with nryan115, this is such a simple thing and is present almost everywhere else, yet not here and it drives me mad. I regulalry check the site on my phone at work to make a move and logging in every time is excrutiating. Logging in every time on my home computer is less of a hassle, but still a regular annoyance.

Yes, I could use a password manager of so0me sort, but I don't want it to tell me my password, I want it to remember me from cookies. It's that simple.

I also agree with Nryan115 on how this is likely an issue for many more people than you realise. I only came to the forums because I saw this thread, this is likely my first post. I enjoy this site and the game we all play, but I wouldn't have posted at all if I hadn't seen this thread at random while looking for something else, but I feel this is such a simple problem with a simple solution that drives me mad when I have to re-log in every time I want to see if it's my move on my lunchbreak.

Maybe only you have access to that computer, but many people are sharing computers or using computers in public places. It's a huge security hole to have open pages accessible to random people. This is a really bad idea.

I don't see this as a risk at all. If someone is risking their own games by staying logged in, I don't think that's a giant hole in security.

It should probably be disabled by default for the reasons you mentioned, but it nevertheless should be an option.

I'm going to go ahead and submit this, as there really isn't a downside to it.

Who do we blame when someone in an office comes onto a computer with CC logged on and decides that as he was not given the Christmas bonus to have a little fun. Even if that did not happen, we would get problems. Who is then accountable?

Exactly. It's the user's choice to stay logged in. And their mistake if they do not log out.

So now we do not need to log in all the time, just have to remember to log out, and then back in. :mrgreen:

Seems like more work for some of us. ;)

No. There would just be a check box IF you want to stay logged in. So, it's only one more click if you want to stay logged in. Otherwise, no more work for anyone else.

I was killing some time looking over my old posts after being largely inactive on CC for a long time. I see this thread has picked up some steam. That's great.

@nryan115: I believe i was the one who started the thread that merged with this one, after which point I endorsed your points completely. To be clear, the timeout I was talking about for that thread is equivalent to the timeout in the "keep me logged in for X days" checkbox. It's the X days I wanted much longer, although I did not propose the checkbox at the time. The checkbox is a better way to get the much much longer X days accepted by all. So yes, the threads are fairly similar.
