View Full Version : Save password?

August 11th, 2005, 11:27
I'm noticing recently that the option to save our passwords when we sign in here has been taken off or forgotten or something. Is there anyway that could get put back? I'm really lazy and don't like typing in my passwords to places I frequent on the net.

We turned that option off years ago... so you've never had that luxury here.

The reason that we decided to turn that off was because of students accessing this site from the labs. If a student forgot to log out, the next person would just post using that account and things would get all messed up.

So we all have to log in everytime now, but I did extend the timer on the cookie so that you are not having to log in after every other post.

Actually, I did have that luxury. Maybe I got it on the last version of the forums, but I distinctly remember that check box at one point.

And I figured it was something like that. I know you guys aren't totally unreasonable

Looking at your "Join Date", you are right... I think we took it out later that semester.

yeah, I had enabled that on my laptop and it kept working until I reinstalled the OS just the other day
