I'm really wondering about why the amount of time it says is so small.
I have been here for about 1.5 years, and this is what my logged in time says:
Quote
Total time logged in: 6 days, 7 hours and 12 minutes.
I have no idea why the number is so small when I should have a bigger total.

I know that Time Logged In isn't really important, but I was just wondering.

It's the time you have been logged into the site and actively doing stuff. I've got just 25.5 days.

If you don't refresh the page or visit somewhere on the forum in roughly fifteen minutes, it doesn't count towards the amount of time you've been online.  In other words, idling accomplishes nothing!

Or at least it works something like that.

Every time you load a page on the forums, SMF registers you as 'active' for the following 15 minutes. This is the time that contributes to your 'time logged in'. If you load another page in those 15 minutes (which is highly likely), the timer is reset to another 15 minutes. Some people have tried to abuse this by using browser scripts to refresh the main IWBTF page every 14 minutes.

It's certainly not a horribly accurate count (given that every time you log in you're pretty much guaranteed 15 more minutes than you actually were doing things), but it's a simple system and it works.

But Wolsk is still right about his seeming too small. Even I have 7 days, even though pretty much all I do is lurk. Maybe his was reset during the admin-chaos-thingamajig.

Which was quite entertaining to watch, BTW.

Nope, there is literally no way to change time logged in on default SMF (which this is pretty close to). None of the changes to the default that are present on this forum enable anyone - admin or not - to change them. Nor can a shift in permissions or membergroup change the time logged in statistic.

nope, Venser has it wrong.
You load a page on the forums.
a 15 minute timer starts
If you load the same or another page before it's done, the time elapsed is added to your online time
If you load the main page only every 20 minutes, you will never gain any online time.


The way venser put it, sounds like you get 15 minutes of log in time if you don't do anything for 15 minutes, which is wrong. He was probably just not clear enough on his explanation
