Firefox 2.0.0.16 here.
I left the browser open and sitting here idle over night and still logged in.

I would say this is the solution. I bet that I ticked that ticker when I logged in.

I've let my session on firefox sit idle for an hour and a half and no log out here.....again as long as you do the remember me button. That is the way vbulletin is set up and that part we can't do anything about.

I'm on Firefox 2.0.0.16 myself and as reported earlier, I have frequently experienced the auto-logout myself. I usually don't shutdown my computer, but just let it suspend to RAM or to disk. With the old forums, I could be logged in with the same session for weeks. The only reason that I had to log out was because the functionality to show which posts are new and which you have already seen stopped working at some time.

I was getting the same when I've been playing some Arcade game for about 25 minutes. I logged in and used the back and refresh button a couple of times and luckily it registered the highscore that I reached after some time, even though it took a number of tries. You might have been able to save it.

Same here. Also after an inordinate amount of time, it would stop showing an icon for new PMs, so I left my Inbox in another tab, ready to refresh.

And now, with "remember me" (grrrr, I hate being remembered!), I still get auto logged, I just don't see that part because it logs me back in automatically. But I can tell I was forced off, because any thread with new posts that I hadn't read yet, is marked as not having new posts anymore.

vbulletin failes to properly auto-parse urls in posts that end in ). It cuts the link off before it is finished, missing the closing ). For example:

You need to upgrade your browser.

Can we get that 60s timer between PMs turned off? At least for users with some post count...


P.S. Thanks for turning off autosaving of sent items.

Zeldor,
They were discussing this in another thread:

You would be surprised, there are dozens and dozens of banned spammers who created accounts to spam our forums. With the ability to now send to multiple people the same PM, the likelihood that someone could spam hundreds or even thousands of accounts in a short period of time has increased dramatically. As a small company that doesn't have administrators on the board 24x7x365, this is not an acceptable risk considering what that kind of spamming could do not only to our userbase and reputation but also to our server.

How the heck are you hitting the flood control that quickly anyway? You either have lightening fingers or need to be introduced to the wonders of instant messaging services.

I tried and failed to find an option to re-enable the auto saving of sent items in the UserCP. I am happy to delete my old messages manually, but it is very frustrating (especially as a Moderator) to forget to tick the box and then not have a record of the message sent. My memory certainly isn't what it used to be.

Please point me in the right direction if I have simply overlooked it, otherwise I wonder how much trouble it would be to add this as an option?

As this is also a thread about opinions... I still don't identify the new color scheme with Dominions discussion, but now I can see what you meant by the improvements on the user side. You've done a great job, and it's clear you've been working on this a lot. Thanks for the work.

P.S. I suggest that everyone who likes the changes goes and uses the new "thank-you" feature on various threads that announce addition of new features you like.
