Why does it show so many connected users when I know for a fact that many of those people really aren't on?

I'm on my dad's computer right now and before I logged in, I looked at the "connected users" portion of the site and saw my name was there...

Wondered that too. I also get email updates that I try to connect to...and it says the thread doesn't exist(i.e. All requests for the beta program here.) I KNOW that one exists.

That same thing happens with me. My email is spammed up with things I can't even access!

Hi Sweatyshoulder,

The reason for the long list of "connected users" is that I increased the time delay of the forum's "automatic logout" feature - it kept automatically logging people out after 10 minutes, losing all the information about their "new posts since last visit" in the process. This was so annoying that I changed the automatic logout from 10 minutes to something like 48 hours, so it looks like people who logged in yesterday are still there.


The problem with the e-mail reminders is that the link in the e-mail is wrong - the forum software has a bug that I haven't been able to track down, and it seems to add a spurious couple of digits to the post number in the URL is generates (often adding 77). I'll keep looking for a fix for this.
