True. But on old POTN you could also have your status hidden. So that's no different now. :-)

Yes, the green online dot doesn't seem to be that good an indicator of a user being online (I suspect many log in and never log out for long periods) or even if they'll respond. One can only try to determine if they will respond if they have a recent post but that doesn't really guarantee anything.

Again, this seems to be a feature that was in the old software that a few "miss" or used to using. ;-)a

Does lurking show as an activity?

Yes it does. You posted this 5 minutes ago but your Home Page says your last activity was 24 seconds ago.

I posted something else since. If lurking counts, my home page should say my last "activity" was 0 seconds ago.

I don't log out; there's no advantage to it. As far as I know, though, my green light wasn't on unless I was at the site.

If the mouse-over preview could tell me how far the topic has drifted off course then I might be be persuaded to find it worth implementing. :twisted:

Mouse? I don't use a mouse anymore. I tap. Tablet.

What's wrong with it? It is intentionally designed to scale with the content of the post.

Well, you can't expect AMASS to check every single second. There is an interval, obviously. Just like in RTAT.

I went to my home page just now and it said my last activity was 0 seconds ago.

Wait! My last activity was: going to my home page.

Exactly. Allowing big avatars lets people use more detail if they want to. Scaling down keeps avatars from distorting the height of a post.

Yep, makes for a much nicer display of the threads and avatars look much better. You can really see Pekka's preplanning at work here.:-D

The way that the avatar resizing works, it only uses real estate that would otherwise be just a blank gray area. The width of the avatar is limited to the width of the gray box that contains your basic user information. I'm not positive about software size limits, but I believe that this means a "portrait" avatar can be resized to a greater degree than a "landscape" avatar.

For me I care nothing about stupid avatars. They get old quick. The avatar should not be bigger than the message! There should be an option to turn them off along with photo posts on the left side.

But I'm here to discuss photography not be overwhelmed by big avatars. Avatars are so 1990s web!
