I haven't decided yet. I don't know that I want to give an exact time and set some kind of expectation that things will be safe when hidden, but I imagine it would be long enough for a specific event happening at a specific time. Just don't hide all the stuff until you're otherwise ready to start.

Also, now that we've got the Hanged Man available as a place for people to stash things even if they can't get into town, there's nothing else left on the preparation checklist for removing hidden item janitor-proofness. The switch will be flipped real soon!

Will persistent containers in the world also become Janitored?

If it's a permanent specifically janitor-proof container (as in the container itself never disappears) then its contents won't be janitored, if that's what you mean. Mobs may occasionally scavenge for stuff in their local areas however, so never assume anything is completely safe out there! If it's some out-of-the-way area or a particularly hidden/safe-looking container it will likely be safer than others, though.

It was posted in #announcements via the changelog, but just putting the information here as well: Hidden items are no longer janitor-proof. Actions that cause items to stick around (such as being recently interacted with) still apply to hidden items like any others, but hidden item stashes are no longer a viable option for item storage. Please use a vault or inn room for safe storage!

P.S. I do like the oft-proposed idea of a single limited more long-term hidden stash mechanic for our more bushcrafty types, so that's still on the to-consider list!
