You can always have it "remember" you, in which case the forum uses non-expiring cookies. The reason for a 900 seconds time-out is to reduce the risk if someone forgets to log out when borrowing someone else's computer.

Plus, possibly, the fact that 15 minutes is the default session time-out?

The timeout can be defined, but yes, 15 minutes is quite common for the reason I explained.

As I mentioned earlier I do not like the remember option either. And back in school it wouldn't be 15 seconds before some had done something stupid if I had left the computer unlocked, so 900 is plenty...

So in my opinion 15 minutes is just plain wrong and a few hours would be the correct choice.

I am sorry you disagree with 15 minutes idle time not being right for the timeout, nor with the option to disable the timeout all together, but this is all we can offer at this point.

One last idea that might help you for your specific need is to install some kind of cookie cruncher extension; you can then select in the forum the remember me option but still have your extension automatically remove the login cookie upon closing of your browser.

120minutes would be better in my opinion, but it's your choice of course.
More time means more wasted resources. You really should use the remember me function to avoid this.

I believe Opera can do that off the box, there's an option to remove all personal information when closing the browser.

I'm always finding that MobileRead Forums has logged me off. Partially because we have pug who thinks he's got to go outside every 15 minutes when I get home in the morning, and if I don't take him right then and there, he takes drastic action. Most of the time when I return, I find I have been signed off. It's no big problem. Whenever I go to reply to a post, the sign-on screen appears with my username and password ready.

You can select keep me logged in and then logout manually when you wish.

Why don't you just use the "remember me" option and then logout when you are done? Or, use a private plug-in that kills all your cookies when you close the browser?

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I am having the same issue. The "remember me" boxen do not work. If I leave the page open for maybe 15 or 30 minutes, if I come back to browse around on MR, I am logged out. The primary annoyance of this is that I do not see the bold/not-bold indicators for what threads I've read or not. Is there a way to "No, Really Remember Me"?

My bad: I was (unknowingly) rejecting cookies for mobileread.com . Since I started accepting them, I haven't been logged out. Apologies for making noise.
