This is a bit difficult to describe, but before vb3 let's say when you were on the main 95/98 page, on top was a list of who was active in these threads. It didn't say which thread they were in but if you had helped someone and you knew they had to close all their browser windows, run an application, and reboot, you could watch for them to return while browsing other threads. I miss that option. I know the little green light says they are on line, but you have to sit right there and keep refreshing the page or go to the first main forum page and go way down to the bottom to see who's on the site. You still have to refresh that page for the results to change. Wish I could go back in time and do a screen shot of what it used to look like. Hope I made myself clear. Again I miss that option.

I noticed that in random too....you used to be able to see who was viewing the forum at the top. Probably a glitch Mike will fix...when he has a spare moment! Bet he worked his butt off getting the site going on VB3! :) Noticed also that even though one checks to be in invisible mode, your name still shows up in "Who's Online". Take care! angel :)

Thanks Angel, I in no way am dissapointed in the new format, very streamlined. It would be very cool if their name below the title of the thread would just change colors when they were "on-line." Yep Mike has been working hard!
Your posts are usually very entertaining by the way! Keep it up.

P.S. Seems like the underline option is not working.

The list you refer to is on the bottom right of the page now :)
