O2 Forums STILL Signing Users Out....WHY????

I posted about this over 6 months ago and it seems absolutuley ZILCH has been done about it....!!Smiley Mad


Why is it that whoever designed these forums, made this brilliant idea (#sarcasm) of signing you out every half an hour, if you don't activley post a thread...? Its utter madness............


If I just want to keep a tab open in my browser, showing these forum pages, and I haven't replied or posted anything in half an hour - I get signed out?  This means I need to sign back in EVERY TIME I just want to reply to a post?!  No other forums ANYWHERE on the web do this (and I use loads!!) so why do the o2 ones sign you out?  Its literally enough to stop me coming back and using the forums because I constantly need to re-sign back in EVERY HALF AN HOUR - utter madness......Smiley MadSmiley Mad

Other forums you use on the internet aren't linked to your mobile phone account which could essentally pose a huge security hole if you were able to leave yourself logged n somewhere even though you only wanted to use the forum.
