Auto logout on password change has been implemented

You will now get signed out of a group if the password you used to sign in does not match the current group password when you go to any page in that group. Hence we are now signed out of choy by going to choy.

A side effect of this is that you may loose some of your logged in groups, especially administrative groups, until you sign into them again. You should only have to do that once per group if it happens.

You do have to actually visit the group to sign out right now. The extra code is too intensive to put on every news feed at this time. A sneaky person could only enjoy reading about the group’s private stuff in the news and never click on any post to get their password revoked. I am thinking about other ways to make that possible … maybe do the full check automatically once an hour or something.

The gaming system will require persistent user timers for many aspects of the gamed environment. So I think I will put my efforts into a generalized persistent event system and then use it to periodically do a sign in check rather than make special code just for this feature. For now, just don’t give out group access to people you don’t trust to sign out honorably.

What is a “generalized persistent event system” ?  Is that like scheduled events … lke eating breakfast every morning at 6 AM ?

You could use it for that. Pretty much  exactly what it’s name says. Events that persist for the user, across page loads and browsers and generalized to work with anything you want an event for.

i don’t see any private thoughts in group choy now.
does it still show you as a signed in?
