"Hou my aangemeld" verleng tot een jaar

From mediawiki.org
This page is a translated version of the page "Keep me logged in" extended to one year and the translation is 31% complete.

Op Dinsdag 16 Augustus 2016 omstreeks 15:00 UTC (08:00 PDT) was die aanmeldingsessies verander sodat dit tot een jaar op Wikimedia-webwerwe bly bestaan. Dit sal slegs gebruikers beïnvloed wat die opsie "Hou my aangemeld" op die aanmeldskerm kies. Tans, hierdie opsie is slegs vir 30 dae.

Gebruikers wat nie "Hou my aangemeld" kies nie, sal nie deur hierdie verandering geraak word nie. U kan vroeër afmeld deur op die knoppie "Meld af" te druk in die regter boonste hoek van u skerm, of as u die cookies verwyder vir die webwerf.


Wat is die rede vir die verandering

Wanneer gebruikers eksplisiet verkies vir 'n langer sessie, is dit handig om dit langer as 30 dae te doen. Langer aanmeldlengtes beteken minder probleme met bewerkers wat onverwags afgemeld word. The login length was previously much longer, and was shortened a few years ago to just 30 days as part of some other changes to how we handle cookies. Many users have requested a return to the longer length since then.

Does this affect cookies that are not related to logging in?

Nee, dit doen nie.

Which wikis does this apply to?

This change applies to all WMF wikis in all languages, including Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Meta, MediaWiki.org, and more.

If my wiki shows the "Hou my aangemeld" time period, will that be accurate?

Most wikis are using the default message, which says only, "Hou my aangemeld", without specifying the maximum length of time. In that case, the message will remain the same.

If your wiki is currently using the message parameter, then the message will show the new length automatically. You will not need to change anything. Any wiki can choose to show the length by editing MediaWiki:Userlogin-remembermypassword to say, "Keep me logged in (for up to $1 {{PLURAL:$1|day|days}})". The software will automatically insert the correct length of time where the "$1" is in this phrase. If you want, you can copy and translate the example from the English Wikipedia for your wiki.

If your wiki is using a custom local message that has the time hard-coded (e.g., "Keep me logged in for a month", without the "$1" parameter), then please change this immediately to use the parameter instead. Using the parameter means that your users will always get accurate information about this setting.

Will existing login sessions be affected immediately?

Existing sessions will not be affected. Users will not be logged out early, and existing sessions will not be extended. This change will take effect the next time you login with "Hou my aangemeld" checked.

Does this comply with the Privacy Policy?

Yes, the Legal team has verified that this change complies with the Privacy policy.
