Which I do when I'm leaving for an extended period of time. I doubt Antony wants us logged in for hours or days when we're not really doing anything on the board.

I doubt Antony cares .. considering that the board only registers you as online when you're actually doing something. So unless you have the site open in a browser, and have it set to refresh every few seconds, it won't influence the site in any way.

If you clear your cookies you have to log in again as well.

Being lazy I've used the remember me option for ages

I'm glad it worked for you. I know how frustrating it must have been to lose all the stuff you typed.

Yeah, indeed. It's there for convenience. Just sign in, and as Chili says you'll only appear online when active.

The only time you don't want to really do it is on a public computer, for example an internet cafe.

Unfortunately, I can't do that. I use a computer at work that is used by others when I am not there. So, if I clicked "remember me," I believe if they hit the login bookmark, they could post as me. Who knows what students that work the desk might post in my name!

WOW! it just logged me off in the middle of THIS post! But, when I logged in, I got a white screen, and was able to back up to this post. Weird! The AVS Forum, with vBulletin, which I frequent, takes about an hour or more of inactivity to log me off. Is there some setting which controls how long before auto log off?

Re: Two Problems with VBulletin Upgrade.

I've said it before, but it must be the computer you are on. I click login, and I remain loggedin permanently until I click log out. As do most people. For the few people that are having issues, there must be a cookie issue or something.

Wow, shows how long i've been away. Good work on the changeover. I'll try to be around a bit more in the future.
