Active/ Inactive indicators

It would be cool if there was a way to see if a person is online or not. Like on facebook messenger if you look at a person’s profile picture there is a green dot by it to let you know that they are online.

I’ve considered this too.

Thoughts @codinghorror ?


If you bring up a users profile page it will show when they were last “seen”. It’s a pretty good indication if they are actively on the site or not.

True, but it’s convenient to just look at their profile picture instead of actually going to their profile page.


That kind of functionality makes more sense for a chat system.
