    Question Currently active users

    The 'currently active users' section on the main forum page said there were 9 members online - but only listed 8 member 'handles'??????

    Users can set their status to invisible in their preferences. That way they don't show up in the online member handle list but are accounted for in the online member count. Another effect that setting has is that the green "LED" next to the user name in the header of their posts doesn't light up when they're online.
    I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me.

    This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.

    And the page display is funky... I don't think you guys can see the "Guests" like I can:

    There are currently 1781 users online. 10 members and 1771 guests

    When I looked, there were 8 users on page 1, 1 user on page 2, 9 on page three...

    The "LOCATION" column also appears to play a part. Some show threads with long headingssssssssssss which takes up more space and thus less people per page.

    Recently, whenever I have looked at the 'Who's Online' page I get the same effect. But the split is always at the same user.
    I.e. the first page is everyone upto (and including) lfuser.
    The second page is lfuser.
    The third page is lfuser and everyone after them.

    I'd add:
    1. The second page is lfuser alone.
    2. The count of users on the page 1 is much less (it may be six, seven, nine, ...) than the default "Per Page" which is by me 25.
    3. The count of users on the page 3 and above - 25 (the default value)
