Considering that "pretty soon" was 4 months ago and it's still not ready yet, we can deduce the following:

"pretty soon" > 4 months

=)

This wasn't really at the top of my priority list, so I've focused on other things. I'm going to put the potential new features up to a vote soon, as I'd like to make some upgrades this year.

Nice facility but not vital. Just make sure that it does not "BING" when someone goes on or off as in AOL AIM.

Sorry if I'm missing the point, but why would I want to know who's online?

It's a pretty common forum feature. It just lets you know that somebody else is browsing the forums, perhaps so you could converse in near real-time in a thread. And it lets you know that you're not the only one addicted to the internet.

1984, yes I had it, but 2 men came and took it away!

Having that feature would be all and well ... but ... it needs to fit in with the site design and contribute with future HTG plans. In another words I would put it low on my list of priorities since much more important plans are on the table. :-)
