Would it be worth having some icon by each person's post whether they are logged on or not?

I sometimes think it would be nice to know if someone's online when you are helping them...simple answer, yes! :)

Sarah

We get a lot of people that don't hang around and if you are in discussion and they just log off and you don't know they have you might just be wasting time searching for them. A lot of forums I've seen have them and also these forums also have an anonymous logon feature as well if someone wants to browse privately.

And some members stay logged on permanently, whether they are at home, at work, or in bed etc, etc.
