Am I the only one who gets frustrated when:

I am searching the forum, I end up continually coming back to the same posts because the hyperlinks don't change to show that I have already visited those links

I read something that I think might resolve my issue I leave the forum to try it out and withing minutes I am logged out and have to log in again?

Thus my suggestions are:
1. Update the hyperlink colors to show visited links
2. Update the amount of time one can be logged in to the forum.

And, as this requires some effort:
I will contribute a free template as recognition for these improvements.

Good on ya,
