I was just wondering why this forum has such a long time set (60mins) for who's on the forum.

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 unsure.gif

Hmmm... I think that question came up before, but I can't find it! Not sure if there was a reason why, or if it was something that could be changed and got overloooked when other changes were being made?

I'll 'heads up' admin to this topic for an answer

If someone closes their screen with out logging off the name is still up on the board as 'online' even though they are not. The only way the name disappears immediately is if the member 'logs off'.

BUMP!

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...

Sound okay?

We used to have two lists - who is online now (which was just now, so if you closed the browser you disappeared) and who's been online today. It made it much easier to send PMs as you could just click on the name. I liked that and it took me a long time to get used to this new upgrade. Can we go back to the 2 list system? unsure.gif Also I find the anonymous member thing confusing - all a bit secretive for me sad.gif However, 15 minutes sounds sensible - although what will happen if you're typing a reply and get called away - toilet, chocolate eating eatingtime.gif, fire alarm, whatever - and come back after 15 minutes - will you have to start typing all over again? Also I sometimes keep the forum running in the background whilst doing other things - will I have to log back on again? unsure.gif

Mumble,

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.

You won't get logged out after 15 minutes. You shouldn't notice any difference to the way the forum works.

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'(?)

That would be fantastic thumbup.gif

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.

Wouldn't it be nice if there was an invisibility option for real life? You could go about your business untroubled by anyone - you wouldn't even have to change out of your jim jams. smile.gif

I have that laughing.gif I must do, the number of peeps who either walk into me or blatantly ignore me when I'm in distress unsure.gif 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 ... rolleyes.gif

You've got a shop in your pyjama's?????
Have they got a car park too?
Is it a 'metro' or a Superstore?
Does Nick collect the trolleys?
Are they open 24hrs at Christmas?

Blimey... just think about the jokes you could make if this wasn't a family forum! laughing.gif whistle.gif

Any time I worry that I may be out of touch with the way that an adolescent boy's mind works, all I do is log on and look for you. Thank you for being such a consistent resource.

Always a pleasure, never a chore smile.gif
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....
