Design Philosophy Behind the Check-In Help Needed
« on: February 22, 2021, 08:29:24 PM »
I want to verify how the Check-In feature works. It appears that if it is set to 1 day (as an example), with a 15 minute timer, the next check in is now the next day + that original 15 late timer added (but also bugged*).

I presumed the following in an example:
  • The chastity seeking user starting the lock is when the check-in clock starts (so noon, for example)
  • At noon the next day the late timer kicks in, giving them 15 minutes to check-in before being late
  • The next day the check-in is at noon again, not 12:15

* Additionally, there appears to be a bug in that when the end user does check-in the timer for the next check-in starts there, not back at the noon time when the user started using the lock. If that user were late, say 6pm, the next check-in seems to be 6:15pm, not noon.

What parts of this are correct and intended vs is there a bug or ?

I can't remember the mechanics behind check-ins but yes that does sound right. I'm certain a check-in countdown starts from when they last checked in. It definitely starts from when they start the lock too. This isn't a bug.

Then I'd like to see an option that ensures the check-in always at a certain time the locker decides (noon, for example), and of course it could just default to when lock starts time as another option. The problem of the check-in time being pushed forward is that it could then be a problem for sleep, etc, and as much as being sadistic is fun, some things need options.

I hope those becomes an option in the future.

The app doesn't use actual time for anything. You can't design locks to start and end at specific times. This is because there's no option in the app for the user to select their timezone.

I won't be adding this option into the app because introducing timezones and having locks and check ins work on actual time would require a fair bit of work. But I agree it would be more convenient if some of these things were based off the lockees timezone

You may see this being added to a replacement app in the future.
