Default Login Setting [Forver is a long time]
« on: 1 December 2012, 00:44:40 »
When you log in the timer is set to forever, this is a really long time and is imo, unnessesary, it would be more secure if it was lower, at least set the default to one month, so if people forgot on public libary pc's or brother/sister/home, friends pc's ect ect. It will log out at least at some point.

Which login are you referring to? The forums (I guess this should this be discussed in the 'General' forum then)? The Transifex login from options menu? Announcement of servers to the masterserver?

Without having any idea which you're referring to, if it happens to be the forum, there's a nifty little drop down box next to your name that lets you decide how long to remain logged in for. And of course, the equally nifty "log out" button...

I am talking about forum login, Forever seems like a absurd setting, tbh it would be better overall if it was set to at least a month, prefebly less, or a day.

Is it set to forever automatically? I am pretty sure you have to click forever. I wouldn't know though, I logged in once and set it to forever. So convenient.

The default is indeed forever, but it takes only a split second to change it. I always set it to "1 hour" myself, and then I have no need to remember to log off.
