The log out time has greatly decreased (now I get logged out within 10-15 minutes) instead of the many hours it was before. Is there anything we, the players, can change to make this easier or do we just have to deal with it now?
I hate how quickly I get logged out. I just use the Reload Every Firefox extension to refresh the page every five minutes (I set it only on a separate cockpit tab so it's not refreshing while I'm typing a forum post, etc.). Apparently whenever you do something on a page (click, or refresh) it resets the auto-logout time. So refreshing every five minutes has been working well.
There's quite a few Firefox extensions that solve some of SWC's problems.
