I was just wondering why you cannot see who is logged in on the board.
Not that it matters too much,but it is nice to see if someone you know is on.
Just a thought.
I'm not aware if there is any reason why it is not shown.

I'm guessing it's because there are hundreds logged in at times, and a list with a couple hundred names on it is too big and bodacious to put anywhere. Or to look through, even if it was there.

Many people do not want it displayed when or they are or are not logged in

Not to sound like a jerk or anything,but isn't that what the 'invisible mode' is for in the user CP?

No big deal though,was just wondering.
Can always just add the people you want to your buddy list and view who's online there

Amen to that! I've got my online status blocked at HTF which does list who's online.
