Cookies have been used in browsing forever, and that includes when you create your user account at any website, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or even right here at Team Falcon.  When you came here the first time after we launched a new tool, we had a box at the bottom that said something along the lines of “This site uses cookies, by continuing here, you agree to the terms written.”  We don’t track your stats, we don’t look at your computer, we don’t do anything with it.  It’s just a very tiny file that is placed on your computer that tells your browser “Hey, this is their personal settings, they want their password to be remembered (optional), etc.”.  And, by “personal settings”, we mean the new Theme system that we programmed earlier this morning.  One thing I failed to realize is that when you switch your theme, it would automatically reset back to the main theme after 1 hour (60 minutes).  The code has just been modified so the cookie would expire after 1 year.

A lot can happen in 1 year, and if you like the current status of the Team Falcon site after a year, that’s fine.  We’re hoping that we can somehow extend the cookie expiration time to an indefinite period of time rather than having to reset once a year, but that will be looked into at a later time.
