Would it be possible to get more time on the login cookie?

Often times, I get distracted and don't come back to CD for more than 15 minutes (that seems to be the time) and I am logged out. Would it be possible to raise this to something larger. Even better would be to make it a session cookie that expires when you close the browser.

it doesnt totally log you out, does it?

it should just mark all msg's as read if youve been idle for 15 minutes

It asks me for my user-name and password if I try to reply. It also doesn't let me vote in polls.

I think once that after I was idle for a while, I no longer showed up in the logged in users either.

Maybe I'm not totally logged out, but its close ;)

Next time it happens, I'll investigate further.

BTW, this is in IE 5.5.

Maybe I was confusing browsers. It just happened to me in Opera 5.12.

I keep messing with it to figure out what I can.

Its probably a browser cookie problem, though it may just be a cookie set to expire to soon.
