    Hey [​IMG]!
    Like the title says. What do you guys think of the idea of friends being highlighted with different colour in "active in past 30 minutes list"(users online list)?

    I am not sure if this has been suggested.. but might aswell [​IMG].

    I know you can see your friends online in the main page, but this wouldnt this also be a good idea?

    Yeah, that is the point.
    User specific for your friends.

    Bad idea then?

    Narayan, what waste of lines o.O?
    Your friends being in different colour is waste of lines? lol

    It's not a bad idea, it just isn't needed.

    Hoo! Like this idea [​IMG]
    But friends should have "Muted" colours, distinguishable from the mods and the like.

    I think it's a good idea. So long as it has its benefits and doesn't require too much work to implement it's a good one(!)

    *edit*

    I completely forgot about this

    In vBulletin, friends have an astrict after their username. Might work here as well.

    Those friend list systems are meaningless and useless anyway.

    *looks at friend list*
    Okay.

    But yeah, I think this highlighting feature and whatnot is pretty unneeded. If you go to the portal for this site you can see your friends in a box, and by hovering over their usernames you can even check the time they were last active (when they last clicked a link). What I'm trying to say is, you should stay on the portal page more than on the index page.

    You need help to remember if somebody's your friend or not? Remind me not to take you to a war...
