Just a thought summed up in the topic. Would really like to see that done :')

What do you mean by this? If you mean by the site then it's possible.

Everytime I get on the site I'm already logged in. I think there is an option for it in every browser.

There is an automatic logout every week, but you can avoid more frequent logouts by not logging out.

Do you mean a way to bypass the weekly logout, or do some browsers logout every time unless you have a setting to stay logged in?

The latter. I can close my browser and come back in and it's still signed in. That's what I mean.

The site automatically keeps you logged in.

Or that. Lol. I didn't know which one it was. I think it just has to do with the cookies on the site.

Precisely. The cookies do it.

Cookies, where?


What is this weekly log-out. Killersup has never had that happen?

I don't think I've ever had to log in weekly, unless you mean if you don't come on for a week it would log you out, which sort of makes sense. I'd imagine AG updates the expiration date every time you're logged into the site, but after the expiration date it would automatically log you out (or rather, not have you logged in). It could be that whatever browser you are using isn't updating your cookies, if you still have to log in weekly regardless of when you get on.

Could be wrong, though.

When I go to play GemCraft Labyrinth it has my saved game ready to load, so the cookies on my computer are clearly just peachy, but it wants me to buy the premium edition because I'm not logged into Armor games. I'm on my own computer, so I'd like to stay logged in. I was playing yesterday, and today it doesn't know me, so it's not like I've been gone a week, either.

Flash savegames get stored in so-called flash cookies, or more technically Local Shared Objects (LSO's), these are and work differently from http cookies proper.

The issue described above, and while it's an older thread, indeed refers to the way users have their browser set up to handle the latter, so cookies proper. This will determine whether the site recognizes them as being logged on or not.

2) The issue of being logged on here, but not being recognized as such by a given game, gets quite regularly mentioned here. I've not studied it enough to know the answer, although my first guess would be to just try and log in again through the in-game logon screen you presumably get. Either way, your flash cookies should have no bearing on this (they will on whether your games get saved offline or not, so on your machine. Note this doesn't pertain to online saves, which obviously aren't stored on your computer.)

I don't know about anyone else, but I haven't had to log back into my account since the time we had that security breach a couple months back. Two things come to my mind with the issue of logging in here. Your PC/laptop/iOS might be periodically deleting this login cookie based on various actions you take, like turning it off or clicking off a browser. The second thing would be logging in from a different computer/laptop/iOS which notices that you logged in somewhere else. Simply put, logging in in a different place requires you log back in when you hop back to the original area.

There might be more to it than this :/

I think that's pretty much the gist of it, Freaken.

I only have to log back in if I log out, for like 6 months straight I didn't have to log back in.

Off the top of my head I believe we set our login cookie to be a month. If you are being logged out earlier than that, you may be deleting cookies or just logging out. You might have a browser extension that does some cookie cleaning as well.

I have never experience this. Am I special?
