    You need 200? for a custom title, I need 10 more, does general chat count? I know it doesn't for sitepoints.

    1) i noticed that too. he's in invisible mode so people can't see how often he's online.

    2) i've never been asked. and depending on what you're supposed to do, i'm not sure that i would want to be...

    Well, I was thinking originally that the listing next to my name might say "Online!" all the time since I haven't logged out in the total time that I've been a member. That would be a bit silly so decided to make it say "Offline" all the time instead :-)

    Also, I didn't like seeing my name displayed at the top of forum listing that I was browsing. I felt bad if I didn't answer someone's question, since that person could hypothetically know that I'd noticed their post ;-)

    *Doesn't mention his fear that Jeremy is stalking him ;-)*

    Um.. I don't know how long site point keeps the sessions active, seems like about an hour if you look at the 'who's online' page, its 24 minutes by default in php isn't it? Surprised you've not been asked Larry, you and Freddy do most of the answering in PHP.

    you go "Offline" after 30 mins here on SPF. mitsu, that's not a PHP thing, it's a vBulletin timeout setting. vB uses its own session handling, not PHP's.

    oh, BTW, my name is Matt, not Larry. i need to put that in my sig or something.

    Yeah I just had a closer look at whos online and figured out it was 30mins . Yeah I forgot they'd have thier own session control, but if it's done through the session_set_save_handler it would still take it's garbage collection time from php.ini? Maybe they don't I suppose.

    no it's all handled by vB. to remove the users that have been inactive for 30 mins, they just run a query like this:

    DELETE FROM session WHERE lastactivity < time() - (60 * 30)

    The doctor is in.

    Congrats Dr Pepper.

    For the record Freddydoesphp was an esteemed Advisor of the forums for quite some while until not long ago. However, other commitments in real life have seen him step down.

    While there are a certain number of staff who help out with the administering of the forums and assisting in keeping them a happy, productive place, there are many, many more members who consitantly contribute quality information every day. Such contributions are recognised through the badge system.

    Besides, have you looked at what a motley bunch the staff are? Are you sure you would want to mix with that type?
