We fixed the feature where you can see who's online today. It proves interesting viewing - accessed from the Forum menu... here . Despite a few still not happy with site speed, it seems the numbers of regulars is still growing. Last month was a record for unique visitors too with 369,000 - that's about 20% growth on the figure we still quote to the trade.

but..................are members really bothered anyway as to who's online?

I have to say that generally the new look/design and teething problems are improving...slowly but surely

It was a feature that was asked for so we built it and several have asked where it went in the new design.

Also some find it useful to see if one of their friends or faves is online.

Well I was asking because the script needs to update, if it was every few seconds it would slow the server down considerably when there is a lot of users on-line, that's why there are options to set the refresh rate I just wondered what it was, if you don't know I'm sure some knowledgeable person here does I hope?

Yes that was the problem and why we removed it, because it did slow down when we first brought it back. Ben's come up with a way to make it work even down to refresh every minute without a loss in speed, but we think 5 mins (which it's set to now) is safer.

Not at all that important but a couple of points.

1) Members Online can be found from the FORUMS Tab not the Photos Tab

2) Just out of interest... Is the Record Number of Visitors : since version 1, Version 4, this month, this week ?
