Can we please get a "Remember Me" checkbox for the login? The site logs you off at the most random times sometimes in the middle of a post for no apparent reason.

This sounds like a useful idea, give or take any Security-related concerns. Maybe there is more to this matter than meets the eye? :o

Also, could discussion of this have been better off in the "Support & Feedback > Website & Forum" area of MWO's Forums instead? :wacko:

User desire is also a part of it and no one looks at those forums. So general forums for the visibility to see if anyone else agrees. The mods can then move it over if there seems to be enough interest.

Well, it looks like there's plenty of interest from the '+Like's you've received so far. And between your last post and this one, it appears a friendly Moderator has been kind enough to put this in view of PGI Website & Forum Staff who would not normally look elsewhere. That means we can now get feedback from PGI's Website & Forum Staff team as the thread is now in their view to discuss, and not merely trying to ram something down their throats which could result in their ignoring the thread or pushing back hard against it. I think that I shall give the Moderator's post a '+Like' too! :D

That one only properly works if PGI can do it in a manner where your Login Credentials could be safely stored and were not possible to scrape by something invading your computer. It really would not be such a great idea at all to Auto-Login the program for MWO's Game Client unless your computer is kept perfectly secure both physically and digitally! This is literally NOT simply a mere ease-of-use and/or quality-of-life issue that must be dealt with, as the problems over Security can be very painful. I rather frankly prefer having to re-type my password on an appropriate prompt over risking losing my account via some malicious attack. :o

Steam and similar applications remain logged in on my computer constantly. A few of my other games also remain in the same state. So why not this game? After all, major companies allow this.

It's now been 11 years that people have been complaining about the 24hr session limit. First complaints were made about it in 2012.

password ?
autologin ?

Is it possible to write a command for such an option within these files?

Every Hour? Ouch! :blink:

I think this is why I always keep the "MWO: Profile > Lifetime Stats" page @ https://mwomercs.com/profile/stats open in a browser tab whenever I'm logged into MWO's site. That way, it means I can keep refreshing it periodically and completely avoid unnecessary knock-outs to my Login state at any given time. My own state of Login therefore fails a heck of a lot less often. ^_^

I doubt that PGI will change the automatic forums log-off.

Feels like an hour may be longer but i do tend to come back after a game and notice I'm logged out.
