    I'm at work now, and just popped in to WDF to check out my favorite forums. I did not log on, and happened to look down at the section showing "who's online now".
    To my big surprise, I saw my name listed as "logged in"?

    If I log in to WDF on other machines than my own, I always delete my cookie afterwards, and open the page again (just to check that it doesn't auto login).

    The only machines with the cookie intact, are my home network. I called home, but no one was online at that point. I then checked the computers I've viewed WDF on recently, and they all had browsers turned off. (!?)

    Any explanation anybody?

    Once you log out, you will disappear from the list. The behavior is normal for reasons I won't go in to, so don't worry if you think somebody else is browsing as you.

    Yeah it just has a time limit before you disappear from the list

    Here, it's set to about 3 hours last time I checked.

    It's not three hours, but it is higher that vBulletin's default.

    You can force yourself off the list by logging out.
