who's on? indicator Answered

a lot of forums seem to have a bar that lists who's online. is there any chance instructables may be getting one? it would eliminate the long half hours when people sit in front of their computers waiting for a reply that not coming. any chance?

I like the uniqueness of this forum. I wouldn't like it to turn in to a conventional forum we see on most sites. I love going away from my computer, then coming back to see the comments I get.

i hate spending 20 min hitting refresh and waiting for a comment when no-ones online! i doubt adding a bar telling you whos on will ruin that

Yea you are right. I guess it is an idea to take up with the Instructables staff.

Ha! Reverse psychology. I wanted you to not want to not ask to ask resulting in the inevitable asking of the thing not wanted asked.

I remember Eric W. (I write just W. because I can't remember how to spell his name and I'm too lazy to search, sorry) once posted a link that allowed to see a "who's on?" list.

I think he posted that by the end of December 2007.
I'm too lazy to search but you could find it in the blog or in his list of forums.

I've got to say, being so far out of sync, geography-wise, that such a list would be nice, but isn't vital.

i think that it would take up too much bandwidth :/ and, do you, perchance, like that high voltage sign? :]
