in the userinfo block it lists who is online now. is this something that you guys can do without or would you like to see it? this also requires quite a few queries to display this information.

I think it should be on all the time, but only if you're logged on... if your not logged on, or ur just a guest, I think it should just show the # of visitors and members online (so that people can at least see how popular it is, but not see everyone's names). I personally like to see whose all online, it shows me the best time to post or send people messages.

I use it, but I don't think it's a hard-core necessity. I agree that some people will only PM when they know the target user is on-line.

Occasionally when I'm at work, I read posts as a visitor, but don't login. It's "nice" to see who is logged in during those times, but I don't generally think visitors even consider who is logged in.

Therefore - IMO the best thing is only for registered users to know which other users are on-line.

The real lesson is that I shouldn't be browsing this site while I'm being paid to do other stuff.

It should also refresh sooner. Looks like it retains about an hour worth of history, so it's not really who is online now.
