mods will always show up as offline

and in your profile, you can set it to run in invisible mode so that you dont ever show up as being online

It is just confusing. No real help over not having it.

I disagree. Ignore the mods issue. 98% of the users will not change the default setting so you can see if they are on line. We use this on another forum.

Only those who don't want their presence known will hide it, including the mods. If indeed many people turn off the feature, then you would be right, it becomes meaningless.

The advantage of the feature is you can private message (PM) someone if they are online and know they will get it. We don't have PM enabled due to bandwidth. Here it is more of a value to a stalker....but if your stalker turns it off...oh well.

i believe that most regulars will leave it on

and thats all that really matters, isnt it?

it would be nice to know when certain regulars are around

although.. whether Im at home or work.. I always have a browser on dvdtalk.. so unless it times out.. I pretty much will always show up as being online
