Treasure Mod Online status section?

Perhaps include a section that shows all mods and gm's of all flavors and displays what sections the work. The feature could bump those that are currently online online to the top of the list. Those not online it shows when they were last on.

I'd actually be against showing when a mod is or isn't online.

I've taken to hiding my online status because I've had PC's visitor message or PM me as SOON as I'm spotted online to try and get posts out of me (and I post at a reasonably fast rate already). A section showing provinces, cities and their GM's... along with AGM's could be good... but showing that mods are online? Yeah... don't like that myself.

This is a standard feature of some of the newer forum softwares out there, but it's not anything we're going to push to implement at this time; every time we add another box that does this kind of stuff, it's more database queries and more chances of folks getting the lovely "no available nodes" messaging. One of the goals in development right now is to limit the amount of processing power we require, not heighten it.

This may happen eventually as a consequence of our future development, but it's not anything we're going to consciously implement in the short- or mid-term at this point.

Meanwhile, the 'Who's Online' box at the bottom of the main forum listing will display mods that have their online status public; plain blue names are AGMs and bold blue names are GMs. However, just because someone's online, doesn't mean they might be immediately available; it'll show that someone's online for an hour after their most recent activity on the board unless they log out or switch accounts.

Probably the best way to snag a mod for real-time discussion is by popping into chat and asking for one; a bunch of mods lurk in chat and may have a moment to help

The Player Advisor Team has been discussing a Master List thread of "Who's Who" in each area of the board. So, look for that soon enough. Otherwise, I know from my own xp that a posting schedule in the GM or AGM's office helps. For a sample, click on Pie's Safe below my sig. Sure, it's not written in stone, but it's a nice start.

Pierott's idea has a lot of merit. The only thing I see that could be tricky is trying to keep it up to date but I trust the player team to do that. =-)
