Who's online

I noticed for a very long time that if you click on an online member at the Who's Online tab, on the right side of the homepage, it directs you to some weird form instead of the member his profile.
I thought I should finally bring it up, but is this normal or what is the intention?

I've noticed this before too, and I think it's just the front-end of your profile.
If you click on your own link, it also shows the "Edit" tab, from where you can change your pass.

The "view" tab is empty though.

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

Good for everyone is finding yourself first,
and then the good in others second.

Programmers do

Initially I thought it could be something that had gone broken after a new http redirect setting, or the opposite, the removal of a redirect setting. But then I tested it with my own user ID, and it worked, and showed those tabs as well.

You can find your own user ID by opening your profile, and noting the number at the end of the URL. This page uses the same number.

Aha, so they are gone. I wasn't sure they were there in the past, but it would be nice if this can be fixed.

Well I was inactive for a long time, when I came back I noticed something was wrong with the post interface right away. I think this was somewhere around October

Not to deviate too much from the topic, but while we're at it, I wonder what people would think about a "shoutbox" or something along those lines? I know we have #lba, but I'd be interested in seeing if we could integrate an applet that could put a java version of #lba right into the page. Would be a neat way to really see who is online.

Mmm, I just think that with our recent surge in activity, it might bear bringing up again.

Me too, those are some cool features and not very hard to create.

It's not like any of the admins even noticed this thread. You think two would help?

I guess a shoutbox would be pretty cool, and it's not something very troublesome to make.

That's my thought as well. We'll see.

Haha, never noticed that weird (and pointless) form before. I'll look into it.

With regards to the shoutbox, since we have the relay chat channel on #lba, it seems somewhat pointless to attach another location for chatting - you can access #lba through the web as well if you don't fancy downloading a client, but both access routes are explained here.

True. I just wish that the IRC page could somehow be integrated into the site more seamlessly overall.

Talk to the op(s)? I think someone can edit the banned nick list.

What do you mean by OP? Original poster, opening post or operator?
Or does it sometimes mean "obsessive person" ?

Operator.

Although we do have our fair share of obsessive persons here.
