Ok so the other day, I was showing my husband a thread on this board on his computer. He is not a member here and I had left the SDMB hours before. But when we visited the thread in question, it showed that green dot next to my username, indicating I was still active.
So after a little experimenting, I discovered that if I don’t click the ‘log out’ button (rather than just close my browser like I normally do), the site keeps me logged in. But if I click the ‘log out’ button, then I have to retype my password in on my next visit, which is a pain.
Now if I cared WHY the site kept me logged in, I’d post this in ATMB. I don’t care why, but the fact that that little green light stays on after I’m gone bothers me. For some reason it feels wasteful…like I left home and left all the lights on.
Is anyone else bothered by this? If so, please join my support group!
