    Some people have a plus after their name now when you look at the people listed that are currently viewing that forum. What does that mean?

    Ah, so now I know why you've got that +, Candy. I thought it was as you're an Admin.

    Can you tell I don't have many in my list :p

    Probably a simple reason for this, but a bit brain dead at the moment

    On the main page, where it shows the users that are online, I've seen this:

    Most users ever online was 960, Today at 05:10 PM.
    eddie5659, 24giovanni, 700mb80min, AcaCandy+, etc.

    Now, I have seen that most names are in alphabetical order, so how come I'm at the beggining of the list? Its not that I've a lower case e, as there is this:

    eddie5659, 24giovanni, 700mb80min, AcaCandy+, Al-Firdaus, Alexandre, asawadude

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    eddie

    I *think* that you are shown your own name first, followed by everyone else in alphabetical order.

    Just a wild guess, but everyone probably sees themselves in the first position.


    Lol, good answer Mike :D
