what's with the short logout time. if your not here in about 24hrs or more, auto login no longer works. couldn't be set for maybe 3 or 4 days, or week.
24hrs is pretty short.and annoying.

no, I'm too effin lazy and like auto login. and, no, i don't and won't use a password holder.
if i ever had problems, i'd probably change.
i don't use auto for my banking and email, etc. i use it for forums since it works. this is the only one i can't stay away from for more than 24 hrs without having to relogin.
not much of a security problem here to use it.
only if you're an idiot and keep personal info available here would you have a problem. or you use only 1 password for everything.
so don't tell me about security for a forum. it's not like anyone is getting into anything of mine by hacking this site. even stealing my password, good luck. it works only for my ed2k forums i visit.

I'm sure it's just a setting somewhere that can be easily changed. as i said, this is the only forum i go to like this. i've never been away long enough to find out what it is on other sites. week, months, whatever.

sorry to tell u, but this was always a problem, with our site.

We use to have a game section that u could play games here. i would play a game for maybe 10 hours and when i was ready to register my high score, i would be kicked off and have to log back in and lose all of my score, and start all over again :sillyrant:

i have no problems if i return once within 24 hours. it only happens if i miss a day. i doubt the board has such a time dependent glitch, and is a setting within the board.

plus this place had more "security" by it's password requirements.
