    My usual practice is never to log out of the Lounge (why would anyone want to? ).

    I have just come back from 10 days in India and found I was logged out and had to log in again. Only a small matter, but does the new style Lounge log us out after a certain amount of inactivity, of was this just some random event?

    You'll have to wait for one of the Admins to come back to find out the time period, Ian, but from "experience only" I can say that some period of inactivity does cause The Lounge to log us out.

    I have a second Lounge account that I use only for testing and it is always logged out when I attempt to use it because I do so very infrequently.

    Thanks, Al. That probably explains it then.

    Your cookies expire after seven days for security reasons, so you'll just have to take shorter holidays in future

    The official explanation:
    It is advised that a member's log in key (used in cookies for persistent log in) expires weekly if not used. This increases the security of your board by exposing log in data for a week limiting the time frame a hacker would have to use the key if stolen.

    OK thanks for the explanation. Or I could just log in again (or log in while on holiday!)
