    Question online or offline

    Is there any way to know if a member is online or offline?

    ... but it does not mean much.

    I often leave my PC at a given post/thread, and walk away from it for hours. In which case, given I might be 20 kilometers from my computer, am I on line?

    There is a small red cross next to the name if they're logged on...

    I always thought a green dot to the right of the name means you're online. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Red/green colour-blindness may be a problem for some, and a higher percentage among males.

    And dot / cross blindness? You've just made it up.
