Login annoyances

liamdaweHonestly, I can't think of a good way to do stay logged in for an openid login apart from doing it automatically, but I don't know how people would feel about not being asked.
Well... many websites don't have a "remember me" option and keep you logged in... like Instagram, and... can't think of any others haha
If the Steam Login is the only one having this problem, I wouldn't mind login in with my Twitter account.

Probably same issue with twitter, as it's an external login.

Sorry about not getting on this earlier, been a bit busier this week than I expected to be.

I would say just do that, and remove said cookie if they explicitly logout (or clear their cookies of course)
These days it's expected that people just remain logged in a site until they logout.


Also, cookies for this are "essentials for site operation" so totally valid without notification under EU law if your still worried about that.
