Er... No, it wouldn't. Handing out a cookie doesn't mean anything. Having the users online/offline status is as simple as logging their most recent click and comparing that with a set 'online' standard (For example, 10 minutes).
Suggestion Idea: Allow the user to configure the time delay before the server logs her out.
Specifics: I would suggest a numerical entry box on the "My Settings" page, with 0 or -1 indicating "disable auto-logout", and numbers representing minutes. Alternatively, a dropbox with "Never", "15 minutes", "30 minutes", "1 hour", "2 hours", "4 hours", "8 hours", or whatever. Yes, logarithmic scales are your friends.
Why it is needed: Because it's frustrating having to continually log in again to see whether it's my turn yet. Many people are playing from their personal computers, where there is essentially no chance of someone usurping their games.
Priority: 4? Who am I to say? It's important to me. But I would think that this could be done very easily.
well at this moment you will have a 24times log in maximum and i thnik you will sleep a lot of times. so i think it will go to a maximum of 4 log ins pro day. just get an easy password, thats not the big deal, but i like it if i could just auto login, from my own ip...
Hi all, I'm a new member (considering going Premium because 4 games just is not enough!). I love the site - well put together i just have one confusion. I don't stay logged into the site... If I close my browser when I come back I have to log in again. This is fairly annoying... but I'm surprised on this oversight as the rest of the site is thoughtfully setup. Did i miss something? Also I'm trying to build a google toolbar button to get me into the site quickly and notify me when its my turn... any chance of making the login php page support a get as well as a post? Thanks
thanks for the support wcaclimbing... I agree.. I'm not sure that 1000's of users installing an add-on to fix a site is a better solution than having the site fix it once. It seems a simple update which is why i suspect there is a technical reason for not supporting it - in which case i'd like to hear it.
I dont have firefox either but I dont like it when things automaticly log you on. With cc it doesnt matter so much because who want to steal my account. Partialy because they could make one for free and partaily because I suck. But there are more impportant things to do
i can see why people want it and for some it could be helpful
but if you click that you want you want the password remembered for a username all you have to do for internet explorer is type the first letter of the username and its all there for you
its not very difficult
but i guess there isnt a reason not to have it? lol
