I've bumped up set time for auto-logouts. It was 15 minutes, it's now set for 1 hour of inactivity.
This however should not affect the forum or your browser from saving your login. If you are using "Remember Me", you should be logged in the next time you open the site/refresh after 1 hour. If you are not using "Remember Me", obviously you will have to enter your login information.
Also important to note, if you are using "Remember Me" but you have your browser set to clear your data every time you close it, this overrides the forum functions. Clearing cookies, auto-fill and passwords will have you entering your information every time you come back to the site.

It is a frustration in mid reply to find out you need to sign in again. On this site, I've noticed when I came back to a thread that my unfinished reply was still there waiting for the enter button. No other site does that.
I've also taken to doing a highlight and copy when I'm not sure. Then I can sign in and not repeat all the typing.
Being concise and un-wordy makes for a quick entry too. Some of these replies are like Tomes.
I don't read some because my attention span is more like that of a gnat. I can't handle it, man.

|greywolf||Change your password so you remember it and close the site when you aren't using it rather than logging out. When you open the site again, you'll be logged on automatically.|

|greywolf||Actually logging in using your screen name and password plus checking the box to stay logged in at the time are the big factors. I don't leave the site running whenever I'm not using it so have never been logged out since the site abandoned the logon timer.|

Have a good one.
