This forum logs me out very quickly (Firefox 3 on Windows). It feels like the timeout is about 10 minutes. Is that really necessary? I'd like to stay logged in until I exit the browser.

Interesting. I thought the timeout was longer than this and only happening if there is no activity. I will ask our staff about it...

Jack, the current timeout is 30 minutes. We will increase it to 300 minutes. Please, let is know if you still experience a "short" timeout after this.

Thanks. Frankly, I wonder why you need the timeout at all... But if you have to have one, a reasonable value would be something that lets one stay logged in for an entire work day.

Also, it's too bad that one has to be logged to *read* the forum. One side effect is that not only does the forum lack an internal search function, but outside search engines don't index it either.

We are in the process of replacing the forum with a more robust forum system.
