  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Question ( about the site ) by johnnythemonkey on 6 July 2007 1:14pm
I usually log on to the site then maybe ' surf the net', or leave the computer for a while. I then find I have to sign in again. How long do you have to be away from the site before this happens ?

It seems to vary. I think it depends on how many are on @ once. Sometimes, minutes, other times a couple of hours.

That happens to me too, but I find it depends on how often I hit the submit button or change screens. When I let "activity" lapse, I find myself having (that is, just surfing and not submitting or clicking to a new area of the site, I have to log in again. Or if I go to a site other than Palins (two screens open)and play there, regardless of how long. Like I'm telling it I left and then came back again...

Your computer's base software will disconnect from the internet after a period determined by how busy the internet is at the time and the time since your last activity using it. I think in most machines it can be as little as 2 minutes. This is not a site problem but an internet activity problem.
