We'll attempt to answer any tech queries about using the new boards here.I'll start with a few hints and tips.Folks requested the ability to see who's online at any given time. At the moment, you can get a count of the number of users logged-in at the top right of the page. If you click this you will get a list of those currently logged in.However, if you make people your buddies (click on their username and select this option from the subsequent screen) then you can click on ""buddies"" at the top of any forum page to see the on- or off-line status of all of your current buddies. This is a quicker way of checking the status of your pals without having to wade through a long list of users.Note that if you are hiding your profile, no-one can make you their buddy. If you want to allow your pals to see if you are on- or off-line you need to allow your profile to be viewable. You can do this in the ""contact options"" section at the bottom of your profile.Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have here, and someone will be able to answer them for you.
