that has happened to me, logged out but still showed me as online, and hitting F5 (or was it Ctrl+F5), anyway either 'little' refresh or 'big hammer' refresh fixed it.

or was yours a 'first time' browser login?

Not sure, but it was gone this time.  Will try to notice next time.  Thanks.

I hadn't noticed that, I usually change page as soon as I have logged out, but it's also still showing me in the online list after I have logged out.
Even if I log out, navigate away from the forum, visit another couple of sites, and come back it's still showing me in the online list even though its asking for a sign-in at the top right.

I decided to see how it went over time and revisited about every 5 mins after logging out.
I disappeared from the online list after 30 minutes.

A bit more playing about showed that the cause of this is the 'Remember me' tickbox when you are logging in.
If 'Remember me' is not checked then you are removed from the online list as soon as you logout.
If 'Remember me' is checked then you are show as still online for 30 mins after you have logged out.

And - as far as I can see - there's no direct link to Piriform.com, and I can't see in the Activity panel any indication that I have posted in any particular thread. Or any indication that a user is online or not (without hovering over the userid).

When you open the Activity panel if you have replied in any of the posts listed there will be a star next to it.

There does seem to be no link to Piriform.com now.

Do you not have an '  online ' panel, or do you mean something else?

I dislike the word 'newbies' that are showing for new members.

I don't like that being there at all. Sure you can temporarily remove what you don't like for a particular session that you're logged in, but it never retains the setting.

All-in-all a pretty awful update!

Ah, missed the star, so ta.

I have an Online Users panel, but only within a thread or within the Browse panel, not in the Activity panel which is my default view. When I open Online Users I get three pages of Guests, so I won't be doing that very often.

But of all my niggles, I think that being unable to see the real post time, and it being in US form, is the worst. Certainly for those who have to be on the forum multiple times a day.

I will see if I can find out for you. May take a day or so with it being the weekend.

Did you get any feedback about this flood control issue? It's still being a pain when I want to do the occasional search.

 

I know that flood control is used as a tool against spambots/searchbots, but does it realy need to be set so long for regular members?
