Regarding Quick Links-Who's Online Feature
It has come to our attention that people are relying on the "Who's Online" feature to find members, and also use it as a tracking device to see what certain users are doing in the forums. We've had folks come to us and say that a certain user was seen sitting on their UserCP for several hours. It generally is not the case at all. Please don't read anything into another member staying in one place to long, and using it as a way to track another member's usage practices is not a good idea. It leads to assumptions about other's who just may innocently be browsing about and forget to leave a certain page. There are browsers out there that allow you to work with Tabs (opening different pages at the same time in another window). Folks can have several tabs open, allowing them to follow a certain forum throughout the day, they may also have on open to private message people, maybe one to view UserCP, etc. Of course, the who's online feature can't list every place an individual may be at any certain time, so it picks one and that's where it stays until the user closes the tab or page. Be assured, there is no way that someone can change any of your personal information as CR
makes certain that all our users are completely secure. I hope this helps those who have been concerned.
