Sorry Atakan KOC... Not fixed... I get no space between the users and no comma's at all now... It also doesn't show the colors of the users groups...

Though I dont need this, it is a great mod.

As a board is starting out, the owner may want it to look busy or no one will join... No one wants to be the only person on a website. This helps create a busy look and make a board appear to be popular and get some people using it. Its way better than having 1 person show up, look around, grab their nutsack and run out the door... at least if someone walks in, sees 10-15 people lurking, they'll stickaround long enough to perhaps run into a real 'live' person...

I'm having a problem with the current version (2.0.1). The comma's that separate the names aren't displaying. They displayed properly in the previous version.

Get some REAL members, even if only 5 or 10, and experience the pleasure of seeing your board grow. My current forum is about 6 months old, with 300 members, of who 200 are active. Everybody knows everybody. If I started to add such fake users who never post, it would look ridiculous and people would start wondering what is going on.
so dont use it Loki. Do you go around giving your personal, judgemental, un-asked for opinion on every MOD?

just a little criticism...

This add-on works pretty well, but i released that it increase the load of my server in significant way.

Is there any way to prevent this?

Why is it that people like to just post in threads that they think is stupid? Some newer boards may need this to spark interest in the forums. I know I am repelled from forums that have 1 user online every couple of hours. It makes a forum look dead.

This hack has a bright future, if it only worked with online.php and the "Record of all time". Then it would be perfect.

Maybe VBA could be edited to not show users online.

How does one disable the "Currently Active Users" link in forum view for certain usergroups?
When in doubt...GAS IT!
