Default Site question

How long do I stay logged in?

as in..If I don't log off when I leave (I normally do, just out of habit)..will my SN appear at the bottom all day, or night?

(I already did a search, and checked the FAQ w/o an answer)

I've asked questions of someone who's SN was at the bottom before...

but I never know if they're ignoring me, they've blocked me, they're gone, or how long they may have already been gone for.

Ok..thanks for not ignoring me, Schmidt.

I'm going to perform a (scientific) experiment now.

I'll stay logged in here while I'm gone, and open another window to watch myself in later.

Man, I hope I don't see myself post something stupid!

It depends on your connection, I often fall asleep leaving PT open and it has me logged in the entire time until I close it in the morning.

I never log out, usually have a tab open, the colored dot under your name will change when you are idle, but still logged in.

OK
I left w/o logging out about 2 hours ago.

Until I logged in just now, my SN was no longer listed under "active users".
(If it is a connection thing, the time period needed for auto-log-out might be different, @ different times, and maybe different for other members/types of connections too, right?

Anyhow,

My thanks to all that helped in my quest for knowledge.


..and to chrisn for hurting my GD feelings.
I wouldn't have expected it from him...
I guess it's my own fault for letting my sensitivenuss show.

He is an abrasive old wall hanger/truck driver that has gone back to painting, just another personality around here, wait to you rub to close to High Fiber.

you said you were concerned if someone was ignoring you. (Probably so) but you can watch the person on the who's online to see if they are.
