    Active Members?

    What is the definition of “active members” found at the bottom of the homepage?

    Just curious….

    Offhand, I'm not sure, Bruce. I'll dig around a little and see if I can see how vBulletin makes that determination. I'm sure it's based on having posting or logged in within a set period of time; I just don't know what that time period is.

    Bruce,

    "Active Users" is the number of members/guests that are logged onto the site at the current time. The software keeps track and lists the most "logged on" including the date and time. This is inside the list of those "online".

    Greg, that would be "Currently Active Users".
    "Active Users" appears to be a different stat.

    Again, I'm just curious...not a big deal.

    I have wondered the same thing. Some forums like to use that number to boast. Always wondered the true meaning.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Steve, it’s one of thousands of wild chickens roaming around Kauai, Hawaii. Some of them are very beautiful and some actually fly short distances.

    That's funny. We have "Several" turtles the LOML has found and put in our back yard, and One male Turtle, (we call Speedy) has a thing for her Red Toenails. If she goes out on the patio with her toes showing, he will immediately quit eating or whatever else he is doing and literally RACE toward her toes. He doesn't do it if she has shoes on that hide the toes. We get a big laugh every time he does this, (which is EVERYTIME he sees the painted toes). None of the other turtles pay any attention to her toes at all. I guess he is just really fascinated with Red.
