who's on line now board

Often I think a member is on line and reply to their post only to realise that as they haven't made any actions for 45 mins they've probably gone!
Could it not be set for 10 or 15 mins? Just wondering

Heard back from admin, and we can do something here...
We mods thought fifteen minutes sounded like a good, tidy 'lead out' time... anything less and we wouldn't have a clue who we'd missed (and with our typing speeds some replies take longer than that), while anything longer wouldn't make much of a differnce to the current confusion...

I don't think anything you were in the process of typing would get lost, your name would just drop off the active users list after 15 minutes.
But I'm guessing here.

The online today one went with an upgrade, but it was also very off-putting because a lot of random generated, 'nasty' names would appear too... they never got through the verification process, of course, but they still looked awful and caused concern... we did ask at one point if we could keep the 'online' bit for members only but it wasn't possible... maybe it'll come in a future upgrade/bug fix?
I've gotta admit I don't like the anonymous member thing much either, but I guess it's a matter of personal preference. The facility has always been there - it was just not 'taken up' in the past...
The fifteen minute thing won't log you out or anything... It'll just remove you from the online list when you're connection is inactive. As soon as you start typing again you'll 'reappear'(?)

And don't panic everyone, you don't get logged out or lose posts and if you view another site then come back onto the site you will still be logged on (unless your cookies need resetting)

Sometimes it's me.
Sorry Mumble and Baddad, but sometimes I just feel like being a ninja secret sneaky person.
I suppose it might be because I live most of my day and life with someone noticing what I'm doing all the time, like having my trolley peered into at the supermarket by stray children who know me, and not even being able to go to the loo without someone bellowing a question or a demand through the door.
I don't mean to bother anyone, but I like the stealth option.

I have that I must do, the number of peeps who either walk into me or blatantly ignore me when I'm in distress Just trying to work out how to harness the power so I'm in control of if and can bottle and sell it. There was a thing on QI last night about some guy who thought he would become invisible if he covered himself in lemon juice ...

Have they got a car park too?
Is it a 'metro' or a Superstore?

Always a pleasure, never a chore
It's what keeps me young. The knees may crack when I stand up, there may be an involuntary groan when I bend (yak yak - who's standing behind me?), but the mind's still as sharp as a....
they hold carpets in place.....
no - not a rod.....
Rod Hull? you're being silly now......
