I'd like to be able to see who's online in the forums, if this is possible.

I don't know if that's already available, but it would be nice.

Edit: I would like to see who's online by looking next to their name in their post.

You can also sort it by member name. Just scroll to the very bottom of the forum underneath the list of names. wink.gif

Ok, let me rephrase, I mean I would like to see who's online by looking next to their name in their post.

Sometimes names don't show up in the "who's online" list. I've checked for myself, and I don't show up some times.

Ah I see. I agree then that an Online/Offline indicator would be nice. smile.gif

If the name doesn't show up, it's probably because they're set to anonymous and don't want to show as online.
(though I know AOL also occasionally does odd things to the online listing)

I've set myself to show up as online, because I like to trade and trade often. I want to make it as easy as possible for people to know I'm online and available.

We had this option before and it was removed for reasons I am unaware of.

It would be nice if we could get it back.

Maybe it was removed because it was glitchy?

Yes, it was removed because it interfered with other coding on the site. I don't know if TJ has any intention of bringing it back.

Either way - if TJ has any intention of bringing this back - I'm neutral. I can see how this idea would be useful - trading, if you need to contact a mod, gifting, ect - but you can always go look at the bottom of the forum page and check there, too. :3

Curious - how would you propose this be implemented for people who choose the "do not mark as online" option? I've used that often; it would be misleading to mark I was offline, but marking online would make the option pointless.

I imagine it would just show you as offline. After all, if you choose to be invisible, you also won't appear in the list on the bottom of the forum. For all anyone knows, that could mean you're offline as well rather than just invisible.

But the thing is sometimes you don't show up. I've noticed a few times when I myself didn't show up there and I have myself marked to show my online status.

Excuse my ignorance here, but if something is glitching and keeping you from showing up on the bottom, why wouldn't it glitch on whatever is next to your username and also keep you from showing up? o.O

Slightly different coding.

Just like Ryukotsusei said, I'd imagine. On other sites I've been on, if you have yourself listed as "anonymous" then you'll just show up as offline all the time, IIRC.

There's also the gray'd out option that dA has. Green circle for online, red for offline, gray'd out circle for invisible status.
