Maybe there could be like some kind of symbol to show if that hubber is online or not, kinda like myspace. Just a suggestion. What do you think?
I kind of like it... Something small in the profile page or in the right column somewhere on the hub. Something not too 'WOW' that would be distracting, but if you knew what you were looking for, visible.
Exactly , that was just what I was thinking like a small symbol on the corner of our profile picture. or like if someone is online maybe their score can be green or something of the sort....?
The only problem I can see with this is that hubpages doesn't ever log you out. Unless you close your browser it will show you as online while you may not really be online. I much prefer not having to log in and out all the time to having an online/offline icon.
This is a good idea. A quick question, though, loosely on topic. I have never been able to get any browser to "remember me" on HubPages. Does anyone else have this problem? I have to login by hand every time. It's not a huge deal, but I think it is a problem with HubPages not a browser.
I haven't heard of anyone having this problem before. My guess is that it has something to do with a setting in your browser related to cookies. You might try using a different browser (for instance firefox, if you normally use IE or vice versa to see if you still have trouble).
Hoodala: oops, I did'nt know that , sorry, an yea noone would want to login and out all the time.
Peter : I havn't had that problem, sorry i couldn't help.
It is technically feasible. We use a 5 minute timeout from your last activity for purposes of the registered users online total that you see at the bottom of the forum page. But, without chat or some other interactive feature it's not clear to me what useful purpose the information would be put to.
I would only be favor of this if it were voluntarily turned on by the members.
I like my anonymity.
What use would this feature be? I am not sure I understand, because there is no communication between us except in the forums or private email, so what difference would it make if someone is online?
It would be helpful to know if someone's online if you're asking a question on one of their hubs (to see if you should stick around or check back tomorrow) or responding to something they said in the forum.
I agree that I'd like to see this feature sometime in the future.

I've never had this problem before and have always used Chrome. I try to upload a photo or other image from my saved files and the Hubpages uploader can't do it. This is driving me nuts! Anyone got any answers? Please??...

Hey, how's this for a suggestion?For those of you that have been on the forums for a while, may be aware how "crappy" it can become, especially in the Religion forum. None of us really have a chance to really...

It appears the suggest links tool is not working as intended. When I launch it, it appears to work, but click on an existing link, such as to remove it, results in the dreaded "Working" dialogue and just a...

While I have not published many hubs, the interface HubPages provides is easy to use, so I expect to be publishing many more hubs in the future. I find that in many cases I prepare hubs on HubPages itself, rather...

Please, make a feature that lets us know if someone is online (or not) when we visit the person's profile, or tell me why it is not a good idea.
