    The site should keep you logged in for quite a while - I can't remember how long off the top of my head - but it's weeks, maybe months, at least. It's cookie based, so if you clear you browser cache, change browser or computer, you'll be asked to login again.

    Are you getting logged out frequently?

    I just checked, and the cookie we use to check that you're logged in is cleared after 24 hours, but ONLY if you're not connected to our site. This means that if you're currently logged in (e.g. to your dashboard), you will not be logged out until 24 hours after your browser is disconnected from our site (e.g. if you turn your computer off).

    Thanks for the suggestion though; I'll talk with @duncanlock, and we'll consider extending the 24 hours to some longer time.

    Hmmmm. Turns out it wasn't as long as I thought. How about we extend it to two weeks?

    We've just changed the cookie that we use to check if you're logged in to expire after 2 weeks. This means that as long as you stay on the same machine, and your internet service provider doesn't give you a new ip address, we should remember that you're logged in for up to two weeks after you last connect to our servers.
