I'd prefer to keep my Everdrive N8 in my front loader NES more or less permanently, but I'm wondering about wear or pressure on the cartridge. Is it better to take it out after every session? Or if I leave it in the console is it better to leave it pushed down or in the up position?

I'm more concerned about potential wear or longevity of the N8, and not really too concerned about the NES itself.

taking it out will actually cause more damage to the nes and the cartridge than leaving it inthere
Everdrives i own: EDN8, EDGB, EDGBx7, EDGBAx5, EDGG

I boiled my ZIF connector, so now carts actually work better if I don't push them down.

Leaving it or removing it every time probably insignificant.  Almost no one these days is using their NES to the extent they did 25 years ago.

It's the same as inserting and removing your graphic or sound card from the PC. Leave it inserted, it's better.

Not really a good comparison.
