[TO ADMINS]Forum logout session time

Postby toneddu2000 » Fri Sep 15, 2017 10:44 am

Hi folks, I'm noticing that session time in this forum it's practically inexistent (probably 30 minutes or less). Is it possible to lenghten it a little? No, not a little, sorry, I mean a lot! At least one day, for crying out loud! :biggrin:

*LITTLEOFFTOPICNOTSOOFFTOPIC* There's still some active adiministrator that manages this site? Because, since we migrated from inside3d we lost tons of users and forum activity is getting lower and lower..plus home page is never updated, so CSQC sticky section (and during 2016/2017 there have been TONS of new things to publish in the CSQC universe).. where are the administrators?

I pretty much stopped using the site because of it's inability to keep me logged in. Yes, it would be great if this was fixed; it would have been even greater if it hadn't happened in the first place.

30-minute sessions seems a default timeout value, and actually is a good compromise to websites under normal workload; however in our case where the number of active users is really low I think extending it to say 24 hours wouldn't make any difference in resource usage. OTOH it can make the life of someone trying to hijack or impersonate a legitimate user easier - specially because we still don't have HTTPS access - so there is a security issue bumping it to much higher values.

EDIT: small typo
I know FrikaC made a cgi-bin version of the quakec interpreter once and wrote part of his website in QuakeC :) (LordHavoc)

You ought to contact them and volunteer to be moderator so you could stickey the topics yourself.

Quake is in a decline stage:
1) The lights slowly go out and things get unmaintained or less maintained.
2) Most newbs are casuals or Steam users, not technical types or detail oriented.

It's not a good thing or a bad thing, just the way things go. This happened in spades once upon a time when Quakesrc and Quakedev went dark and other sites with activity faded and went away.

Quality volunteers and people with time and willing to help are the answer.
The night is young. How else can I annoy the world before sunsrise? 8) Inquisitive minds want to know ! And if they don't -- well like that ever has stopped me before ..

I took a look in the ACP, but it looks like persistent logins IS turned on, with "persistent login key expiration length (in days)" being set to 0. (which *should* always cause autologin) Which probably means that PHPBB is broken or something.

I have no idea what else can be done as I don't want to mess around too much and accidentally break things as I don't know enough about how things are put together. scar3crow or Tomaz were responsible for setting up the new insideqc forum softwares IIRC. (Not sure, I didn't have anything to do with the restoration after inside3d went down before.)

I was not involved in setting up the new forums in any substantial way.

I set the login length to 90 days, since obviously it wasn't parsing the 0 days as Never, we'll see how it goes from here.

I am around, just not typically on forums, I am very available on Twitter and Discord, as well as running the Quake Community group on Facebook, which are more accessible from the perspective of having 2 minutes here and there.
...and all around me was the chaos of battle and the reek of running blood.... and for the first time in my life I knew true happiness.

Did not change a thing for me. I still have to log in again all the time.
