I have an idea
 
Okay so this happened to me one time

My dad asked if i could empty the dishwasher while he went and took a shower.

I said ok. I am just gonna finnish this tread WI, and i will have it emptied for you when you are done.

An half an hour later, i was still on WI and he came back out.

I had COMPLETLY forgoton about it becasue i was so involved in WI,

i was SO ashamed and mad at my self, more than he was, for letting the time get away
from me.
Ik i should have logged of then, but i didn't think it would take long.

So this made me think.

What about like every half hour, or hour (if you are on)

a red box would show up at the top of the screen and say:

You have been on a while, would you like to stay on or log of.

Oh cource you could disable this feature if you wanted.

Ik it is probably not possible to do but i think it would be very helpful.


twilightcrz also said it would be good idea to set up the incraments of time you want aslo!

Re: I have an idea idea for those people who always lose track of time!!!
 
Cool idea! :) I know a lot of people do have a hard time getting off of WI, and often think it's been shorter than it really has. I know my parents would love this, but maybe we could set it up for different incerements of time, based on our own preferance. I love this idea, and if I can, rep! :thumbup:

I really like this idea! On the Nintendo Wii, every once in a while something pops up and says, "Would you like to take a break and go outside?" or something like that. And yeah, I always loose track of the time when I'm on the computer, preferably on WI! So this feature would be very helpful! Great idea!

its a good idea mtlucas! We all need our limits. And i admit, i have a problem. ::)

xDD

if kids (or parents) actually see how much time they spend on the computer, they could change their ways!

Or maybe, you could type in a little box your schedual. That way you could take some time to right down what time you have to go. For instence: "honey if about 15 minutes get ready for bed" In that case you would type in a "alarm" for 15 minutes that would remind you to get off. Or you could type in "nap at 2, dinner prep at 5, bed at 10" And it would warn you when those times are there. :) Great idea!

Well, I'm a parent, and I'll tell you what I like. When I say "Please empty the dishwasher" I like when my child says "Right away mom!" and IMMEDIATELY gets up to empty the dishwasher. :)

But I don't like hearing: "In a minute, Mom!" Or "I'll do it soon, Mom" because soon, I'm the one doing it and I'm hearing "I was about to do it, Mom!" and "Sorry, I forgot!" :(

And I would not be impressed if the computer or nintendo told my child to do it either. I'm impressed when my child listens to ME, not a machine! and does it right away. :)

I think it would be cool but there are smiler ideas posted. Another way to solve that problem is to get off WI then and there. ;)
