The new site will be ready soon (hopefully this week). On the preferences issue, I decided to keep the system relatively the same. There will be some new options for recovering preferences and sharing them with other devices.

As mentioned by OrionSR in a few posts lately, I'm working on updates to the site.
What I'm looking for right now is feedback on the preferences part of the site from the people that use it or would like to use it.
I've occasionally heard from people that it doesn't save their preferences or they lose their preferences before they should.
Currently the way the preferences work is that the site saves your preferences to the server with a unique ID and a cookie is saved by your browser with that ID so that it knows which prefeneces to load when you re-visit the site later. The cookie expires after 30 days since the last time you visitted the site.
What I am considering doing is having the preferences tied to a permanent account instead. This would likely be an OAuth or OpenID enabled account, meaning you could login using Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc and not have to worry about remembering another username/password pair (see the Stack Overflow login page for example).
However this also goes against my original plan to never require account creation on the site. If implemented it would only be required to use the preferences. Save upload and download would be unaffected.
So what I would like to know is...
- How well is the current system working for you?
- Would you rather keep it as is or have your preferences saved to a permanent account?
I may use this topic to ask for feedback on other things I plan to change. Currently this is the only thing that I can think of that would be more of a "change," whereas other planned updates are "additions" that aren't really debatable, such as more stats, checklists for other GTAs, etc.
