So it is a conspiracy... What on earth is Andrew's end game here?

I can see some services where having to frequently log back in every few days would be annoying, but why is it important that you're not logged out of this one?

My thoughts, precisely... :roll:

Considering one can swiftly log-on with a single click (provided user credentials were initially saved),
far from being a hindrance, TPFC's automatic log-out "feature" is actually a welcome security factor.

As my old pal WS was fond of saying :...;-)

Why do you see this one as not being annoying to constantly log back into? What makes other sites annoying to log back into constantly that doesn't fit the bill here?

I check this site almost daily, and there are community aspects here that require being logged in, I can't vote on new entries, I can't add my two cents to someones comment, I can't reply to things on the forums or see what has been newly posted since the last time I checked, I'm just not going to bother with any of those anymore, ffs, I had to log back in just to reply to this, consider this my last time unless it's really important, I'll just treat this site as a lesser MajorGeeks or something, check the front page then move on.

You literally add nothing with this post, Webfork asked me why something was important to me and you reply with "My thoughts, precisely... :roll:"

Swiftly log in? I can't, and welcomed security factor? This isn't a banking site, I'm not worried someones going to gain access to my desktop and post on a freeware site under my name... this is nothing but being a hindrance.

@Special : I am not in the business of discouraging involvement here on the site. However, I don't have the means to fix this one -- I'd actually recommend contacting Andrew directly. If you've begun to feel we don't care, please know it's been a weird few months as both he and I have taken turns with crazy life activity. I think he's receptive to this issue and will try to resolve it.

Just to be clear, I'm not mad or anything, I know you or anyone else here aren't discouraging community involvement if anything you want more of it, this thread first started off as a question, then turned to a suggestion, once Andrew said cookies were set to "forever" I thought that would be the end of it, but it wasn't, at least on my end, so I was just reporting in on whether it was a bug, maybe a site bug or maybe it's on my end. My comment above about "So it is a conspiracy... What on earth is Andrew's end game here?" was just a joke, not a jab at Andrew.

I don't want to pester Andrew, this isn't a big deal, its a pretty third world problem really, if he's busy with life then a PM won't change that. I'll assume he'll catch this thread eventually and look into this when he finds the time.

Things i tried when it happened to me:
- made sure i have my cookies set to be kept until they expire, in my internet browser's settings (after i deleted the old site-related ones and logged back in)
- made sure i have the option "log me in automatically each visit" checked when i logged in on the website
- changed my ip address
- flushed my dns
- complained here somewhere
- prayed to Amun-Ra
One of the above worked...

I've done everyone of those things except pray to Amun-Ra, it seems to be completely random when it happens.

If you are using Firefox, you could try the Biscuit add-on that preserves marked cookies even if you delete "all" cookies. It can even preserve session cookies.

No, there's no evil plan to take over the world (mra ha ha ha!)

I think I might have misinterpreted the server settings to set the cookie expiration to forever. I have now set it to "999 days" and verified that the new cookie details are correct.

Let me know if you are still encountering any issues after this latest change.

I can login without problems with Vivaldi, which is a Chrome fork.
