assuming you mean "who" ... you can see it already when you click on peoples name.. a total useless and unneeded feature. For me it's getting close to invading my privacy  ;)

No need even to click on the name. Just hover your mouse pointer on top of the name and a window pops up.

Ah, I noticed too that when you click the name then you go to the profile and it shows is the person logged in the forums.
The green dot shows the person is logged in the forums. Hovering mouse over the dot reveals text "Coby Foden is online now".

And the green dot also shows in the forum too, when hovering mouse over the name, if the person is online.
No green dot in either window, then the person is not online.

Being "online now" is not the same as "being at the keyboard now". I probably show as online all day long, as I'm perpetually logged in on my computer, iPad and phone. But I only pop in momentarily to draw attention to myself.

That is cool and I know that but I'm not going around too click on everybody to see if they online. But if on the main forum page would be a list how is online would be nice.

Not a fan of a feature like that. I prefer lurking in the bushes

I believe it shows as being "online" for about five or, maybe ten minutes after any activity like posting, changing pages, etc. Also, if you notice in anyone's profile, it will tell you which thread they're "looking at right now" - which also will have a time-delay on it until you either change threads or the timer cooks-oof.

A list of possibly thousands of people that are"online" on the forums? What possible use is a feature like that?

Every bit as useful as all those green dots stacked on themselves you see on the world map, usually very high in the sky and often standing around like lobotomy patients.

I would like to have a feature to silently login inworld. Why there is a need, when I login, to announce all the people in my friends list that "Coby Foden is online"?
If somebody wanted to know am I online or not then they could check it in their friends list. No need to make a public announcement of it to everybody at login.

Often just after login I like to check many things before socializing. Immediate IMs at that stage are a kind of disturbance.

I would also love to be able to ghost-login.

As for a list of who is on the forums? No thanks. Another forum I visit has that, it's useless.

Timeout is 15 minutes - I tested with an alt.  So even though I stay logged in all the time, others really can tell whether I'm actively here or not.

I'm glad there is a timeout.  I often get up from my desk to take care of something without logging out, and get involved in other things forgetting that on my PC I've been 'viewing' something like "Looking for a BI girl" for 2 hours....  :P

Should we start a clocking in system or school register where we all have to sign in each morning when we log in?  My browser is open constantly with the forums and some other places.  I might be off in the garden, cooking  or in world so not really here

I'm not sure I even made it to the forums yesterday.  Things way to busy at work right now and last night out internet was out for quite a while.
