I know. Is annoying
I don't even have to close the browser, I'm just logged out at random intervals after I close the last Forum tab.
Same here. I've also found I can be writing a post and then on submit discover I've been logged out!
Just popping in to say that I have a similar issue. It'll randomly log me out, without ever giving an option to just stay logged in. I'd love to have the option.
Is this tied to the newish EU laws relating to cookies and privacy, maybe? Where the site is no longer storing cookies to avoid having to add extra systems? If so then no worries, it's just an odd feature to leave out if that's not the reason.
I guess this amounts to an “up”...
+1, this is annoying. Would it be crazy to offer to fix it myself? I'd be willing to take a shot if XenForo is just your standard PHP+DB app.
And I see that this problem is still not solved.
What a shame!
I agree that this should be resolved.
Ye, super annoying.
Guys. Stop asking. It's been 3 years, this is not going to get fixed. The "forum OS big update" was supposed to be "soon" in Jan 2019. It still hasn't materialized.
It's either too hard, too expensive, to annoying to fix or they don't care enough to finally do it. They may be annoyed by the bug, embarassed by our questions, but all in all, this is not happening.
They could of course shell out a tiny bit of money for a Xenforo 2.2 licence that releases in coming weeks and hire somebody to do an update instead of relying on a 10-year old Forum engine. But that's not going to happen as well, it seems.
Pages currently show 2010-2017 for copyright, suggesting version is ~3 years old.
I meant Xenforo 1. Still, a 3-year old Forum software, unkept as we can clearly see, is a problem of it's own. I can guess Koni meant going to Xenforo 2 in January last year, but did it happen? Naw.
Ah shut up man. At some point it'll get updated.
The year after Tohaa get rereleased or something but will happen sooner or later (definitely later).
In the meantime hit CTRL+A CTRL+C when creating a post, especially for the longer ones. Committing that into muscle memory saves hours in my case :P
White knighting for a company that can't even fix broken Forum features and insulting users who waited over 2.5 years for them to keep the promise, it's hilarious.
If you were capable of reading comprehension you could easily tell I'm the last person who wouldn't talk shit about game design I don't like.
As someone who worked in a 50-100 people company in IT I merely have some practical experience in juggling the IT demand in CB's size category during normal times. The guy who would be in charge of migrating a forum or even just working with externals to get it done during COVID times isn't someone to talk shit about. Working in a 1500 people company now I've been working 10-14 hours since March, some of my former colleagues colleagues in that small company were working through 3 weekends in a row.
Open a box of empathy mate. You have to click the login button a couple times a day, so what? You'll survive till it gets fixed 2022.
Thankfully I'm not, so I didn't even attempt to read the rest.
Oh, in my general lack of comprehension "COVID" registered as an excuse used. Shit, it's already been three years of the pandemic? :o
Exactly. It’ll happen when it happens, so roll with it.
