Online ?

Recommended Posts

Forgive me, as this is probably / almost certainly a daft question.

I use an iPad and have 4 or 5 things open (as it were) through Safari at any one time.  I’ll look in maybe 2 or 3 times / day - it might be emails, it might be BFE, it might be one or other of the other sites I regularly visit.

For some time, I’ve been wondering whether I’m shown as being ‘online’ all the time and thus a rather sad person, or is it just when I tune in?  I have no way of verifying it.

Not a matter of world shattering importance - just interested.

You are shown as being online if you are logged in.  Otherwise you show up as a guest, then you can lurk anonymously...🙂

You're shown as online if you are logged in and browsing the site, and for 15 minutes after we last log any activity from you (unless you log out). 

Example:

You visit the site, you show online and a 15 minute timer starts. You choose to write a new thread. From clicking the 'New Thread' button the 15 minute timer is reset. If you post after a few minutes, this restarts the 15 minute timer. You then leave the site. You'll appear online until that 15 minutes is up.

 

Hope that makes sense

Thanks Jim (& Brigitte!)

In future I’ll be logging off, otherwise it looks as though I’m even sadder than I actually am, i.e. waiting impatiently for the next post !!
