    Will we be getting the online/offline attachment back on the avatar boxes please? I've missed this recently and found it quite helpful knowing at a glance if someone was on or off line.

    I thought it had just moved to the top left corner of the avatar picture?

        Just in case not known ... Offline is not something that the site can detect. It can only "assume" Online if the user has been active within the last XX minutes (something in the region of 20 minutes is usually used for this purpose), so it might be that the user has disconnected from the site already but that has not yet had long enough "inactivity" to be regarded as Offline. (I expect that if someone actively logs off, etc., that Offline will be accurate, but I doubt it is in the majority of cases)

        I have my Privacy preferences set to NOT show when I am online, so you will (should?!!) never see me as being online. Others may do the same (particularly if using a computer from work to view GC -Naughty-Naughty!!)

        So its "worth" may be limited :)

          I wonder what would happen if I changed my preferences to not show when I'm online and added a little green triangle to the left hand upper corner of my avatar pic?
